Mas nakaka-pressure pala ‘yung nasundan mo na ‘yung buhay nila na, ‘Shocks! Alam ko ‘to eh, napanood ko to dati’, so alam mo so mas makapal ‘yung pressure for me na i-play ‘yung tao na kilala mo pala -- Kapamilya star Kim Chiu on Sisi Rondina
Former University of Sto. Tomas star Sisi Rondina found a big fan in Kapamilya actress Kim Chiu.
The Tigresses standout and UAAP Season 81 Most Valuable Player is a self-confessed supporter and fan of the chinita actress.
So it’s no wonder that when a reporter asked Rondina who she wants to portray her in a Maalaala Mo Kaya episode, her answer was a no-brainer.
And ABS-CBN made it happen.
Having her life story featured in the country’s longest-running drama anthology came as a surprise for Rondina. And for her to be played by no less than the former PBB Big Winner and box office star Chiu was unexpected and a dream come true.
For, Chiu, she could relate with Rondina's journey from a simple ‘probinsyana’ to making it big in the Big City.
The actress admitted that she felt tremendous pressure portraying the inspiring life and volleyball journey of the four-time UAAP beach volleyball champion and the Queen Tiger that powered UST back into the Finals after eight years.
Rondina’s life story will be featured on MMK on July 20 at 8:30 p.m. in ABS-CBN Channel 2.
