MANILA, Philippines – Kapuso stars have all the reasons to be thankful for the year that was. As for 2013, they hope for a clean slate to start fresh with wishes and goals all set for realization. Below, GMA talents share their unforgettable moments in 2012 and things they look forward to in the new year.
Carla Abellana — Unforgettable moment in 2012 was paying for my house and lot fully, getting myself and my family new cars and coming to Las Vegas for the first time with Geoff on a brief vacation. This 2013, I look forward to my new soap where I get to play a role I’ve been dreaming of since I was younger, and hopefully I get to do at least one movie as well.
Mikael Daez — My most unforgettable moment would be getting the news that Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga became No. 1 during the whole daytime block because that’s what I put all my energies towards giving my best. For 2013, I’m looking forward to improving upon my 2012 and making the most of the momentum I’ve built.
Ogie Alcasid — 2012 went by and so many things happened, happy events and very sad events. What is important is that in 2012, we remained resilient as a nation — always believing that God is our refuge and salvation. Every new year is an opportunity to grow as a Christian and to be able to witness God’s abundant love for all of us. Every new year is a blessing by God’s grace.
Alden Richards — I’ll never forget how fruitful my career was during my 2012. I’m looking forward for another prosperous year in 2013 because with God anything is possible.
Raymond Gutierrez — I have too many personal breakthroughs and career highlights in 2012 to just choose one. It was truly an unforgettable year for me. From turning my life around and living a healthier lifestyle, the weight loss and the companies that trusted me to endorse their products this year, I’m truly grateful to everyone who helped me along the way. For the upcoming year, I already have set sights on a few projects and collaborations. I might branch out into business and maybe travel a bit more. Let’s see. But whatever it is, my formula will be the same as last year; work hard and keep your eye on the prize.
Jennylyn Mercado — 2012 was one of the best years for me. Ang dami kong naranasan, natutunan at natuklasan. That is why there is no specific moment for me na i-cherish because from experience I learned how to treasure every moment kasi everything that we experience makes us who we are now. For 2013, looking forward ako for my new projects and continuing my journey here at GMA.
Gwen Zamora — Most unforgettable was being able to complete my novena even with a hectic schedule hahaha. I’m looking forward to a family reunion again… Kasi my family is always scattered around the world.
TJ Trinidad — The birth of my son who has changed my life profoundly. Continued growth as an artist, being more active in giving back to the community and of course, being a father and a husband.
Mark Herras — Dancing for Tito Dolphy’s tribute was an unforgettable moment for me in 2012. I was able to show people that I can also do other dance moves apart from hip-hop and sobrang hirap ng mambo at para gayahin yung exact moves ni Tito Dolphy. Overwhelming yung feeling na natuwa at kino-congratulate ako ng lahat ng tao lalo na yung Quizon family. I’m looking forward to more acting projects both on TV and film and of course, dancing will still be a part of my 2013. Good health and happiness for me and my loved ones.
Bela Padilla — For 2012, all my scenes in Magdalena have been unforgettable for me. An action/drama show hopefully in 2013.
Rafael Rosell — Most unforgettable moment in 2012 was one of those spontaneous trips to a hidden and unexplored surf spot dito sa Pinas. It was scary at first, but when I overcame my fear and became chill with the new environment, I slowly came to a realization that would further change the course of my life. It was that very surf session I discovered that a new environment, new people, new experiences and a new outlook was such an enriching boost. This realization slowly leads to my transfer of networks, wherein the excitement of a new environment, new people, new experiences and new outlook took place. And thus 2012 has been, in all senses of the meaning immensely enriching to me. In 2013, I look forward to more people discovering more about themselves and moving forward in their lives and making bold steps out of their comfort zone…in which, they say, is where the epic begins.
Marc Abaya — After my mom passed away last October, my bandmates and I spent a weekend in her rest house in Anilao, Batangas for much-needed rejuvenation and healing. She “sent” us the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen. It began simply…then the sky exploded with the most majestic colors. She was also a painter in life…so naturally, I felt like she painted the sky for me; telling me everything was going to be alright. What do I look forward to in 2013? Everything. Life has always thrown me blessings and “curve balls.” I’m grateful for all these gifts for they have made me who I am. I look forward to doing things…anything and everything to honor my family; to honor my mother.
Frencheska Farr — When I got to play the lead role in CBN Asia’s Tinig: The Dulce Story, I was able to break some of my boundaries in acting and the Miss Saigon auditions as well.
Janine Gutierrez — Most unforgettable moment? I think I had so many firsts this year but one would have to be riding a helicopter over the island of Boracay. I look forward to more firsts in 2013, more travels!
Jillian Ward — My most unforgettable moment of 2012 was when my mom and dad surprised me with a Hello Kitty van, playing the role of Luna in Luna Blanca and winning the Movie Child Performer of the Year at the 28th PMPC Star Awards. I’m looking forward to a great year with happy life and blessed family. I’m also wishing good health for all of us. More projects for me and my co-actors at GMA.
Gabby Eigenmann — The success of Broken Vow and Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga. Also, being nominated for Asian Television Awards.
Rocco Nacino — Receiving and giving my speech for my three awards this year for Enpress, Star Awards and Guillermo Mendoza. I’m looking forward to more projects and interesting roles that I can portray this year.
KC Montero — Getting the chance to get to know Rhian. Continued success for all my friends and my companies as well.
Glaiza de Castro — Most unforgettable yung pag-accept ko sa role ko sa Temptation of Wife. For 2013, I’m looking forward to a more travel/adventure-filled year of independence.
Frank Magalona — Most unforgettable moment of 2012: 12/12/12 was the day I released a tribute song to my father called Hari on FRANKMAGALONA.COM
Lauren Young — My most unforgettable moment for 2012 was when I graduated high school and started college. It’s so unforgettable for me because as a working student it requires so much hardwork to be able to go to school and also work at the same time, so to be able to finish high school is a bit of an accomplishment for me and I’m ready to make another unforgettable experience again, by finishing college.
Elmo Magalona — I’ll never forget the time when I went to the States for the first time. It was an incredible experience.
