- Nora Aunor was rumored to walk out from the set of her upcoming Kapuso series
- Her director, Gina Alajar, broke her silence about the issue
- She completely denied the rumors about Nora’s alleged walk out
After rumors broke out that Nora Aunor suddenly walked out while she was shooting for the upcoming GMA-7 teleserye, her director, actress Gina Alajar, opened up about the speculation.
KAMI learned that Gina denied the rumors.
In an interview with PEP.ph, she defended the Superstar.
"Hindi siya tinopak. Hindi siya tinotopak, nakakatatlong araw na kami [ng taping], hindi siya tinotopak!
"Sino ang nagsulat? Walang walkout," Gina clarified.
As for the rumor that Nora only has a special participation in the series, Gina also called it as a lie.
“Anong special participation? Hindi, ah! Siya kaya ang bida. Of course not, hindi siya special participation.
"I mean, she’s a strong poste sa soap na 'to. We all know na kailangan ng matitibay na poste para magtagumpay ito.
"Sa lahat ng launching ng isang artista, ang pinakaimportante doon ay ang mga poste. It’s like isang bahay, kailangan apat ang poste mo. Apat na poste mo, matibay, hindi tumutumba.
"We have actors like si Guy [Nora], si Cherie Gil, si Gardo Verzosa... nandiyan ang mga artistang 'yan para maging poste.
"And what could be more interesting to see Guy and Cherie face each other, hindi ba? So, ngayon pa lang, as a director, I’m so excited already sa face-off nila, sa mga eksena nila,” she explained.
Gina also praised the work ethic of Nora.
"She comes early in the morning, hindi siya nale-late sa taping. Hindi siya ang tipo ng artista na nagpapaantay.
"Hindi siya yung artistang kung kailan actor’s in, saka siya magbibihis, saka siya magme-makeup. Kapag in-actor’s in mo siya, nandiyan na siya."
The upcoming teleserye starring Nora and Gina is entitled “Extraordinary Love.”
According to the rumors, Nora walked out because the filming went over the 10 p.m. cut-off time.
The Superstar was last seen on television in an episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya.”
