MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya actress Jessy Mendiola admitted that her upcoming teleserye “Sandugo” was the reason why she is staying with ABS-CBN. 


During the press conference of the teleserye set to air on September 30, Jessy was asked if “Sandugo” was the reason why she is not transferring to GMA 7.


“Yes po. I just want to set it straight. Yes po,” Jessy briefly said. 


Jessy’s last teleserye was “You’re My Home” in 2016 apart from her guesting in the longest running teleserye “Ang Probinsyano.”


She hopes that her role this time will leave a mark to the audience. 


“Actually kaya 'di po tinanggap ko 'yung role kasi po feeling ko kaya hindi ako nagkakaroon ng chance na patunayan 'yung pag-arte ko kasi po hindi ako nabibigyan ng kakaibang role. So hopefully po sana mag-marka. There's always a first time for everything,” Jessy said.  


During hibernation, Jessy said she learned to give balance in her life.


“'Pag may pagkakataon po na parang hindi ka na nagkakaroon ng passion or excitement 'pag tumatanggap ka ng project, might as well na 'wag ka na lang tumanggap kasi siyempre you won't be able to give your hundred percent, so it would be really unfair for sa mga katrabaho mo, sa mga bosses o sa production. Para sa akin po, at this point, as long as it excites me, as long as I have something to prove to myself, gusto ko pong tumanggap ng maraming iba't ibang role,” she said.  


Jessy assured that she loves her role in "Sandugo" and promised to give her all for the character. 


“I’m very thankful po nabigyan ako ng role at ng show ulit. Marami na rin pong mga shows na binigay pero ako din mismo sa sarili ko na hindi rin po ako ready and that would be really unfair to the people na nagbibigay po sa akin ng trabaho. I promise po this time, I think and I feel that I'm really having fun with my character,” she explained.
