Tonight with Boy Abunda welcomed Maxene Magalona, daughter of the late musician Francis “Francis M” Magalona and known for her roles in popular dramas such as Doble Kara (2015-2017) and Dream Dad (2014-2015). The beautiful actress shared her participation in the drama, Playhouse, with Angelica Panganiban and Zanjoe Marudo, as well as her life as a wife after she tied the knot in 2018 with model Rob Mananquil.
The show’s lifeline featured a quote from Maxene’s famous dad, Francis Magalona, which tells of the importance of dreaming and reaching for the stars. Maxene told Tito Boy that one her favorite songs written by Francis M is entitled “Reach for the Stars” and that it inspired her to keep dreaming and to never give up. She revealed how her father fought very hard for his life and dreams, and even continued to do work; recording an album despite his illness. When asked what her dream is, Maxene wisely answers that she dreamt of becoming the best version of herself and how she’s working towards that goal every day.
She also told how she went through a phase when she felt so sad and negative that she had lost all confidence in herself and compared herself with others often. She thanked her husband, Rob, for pulling her out from that phase and filling her with so much positivity by always encouraging her that she can do anything.
