Kapuso actress Sunshine Dizon, who first played the role of Sang’gre Pirena, will take on a special role as she joins the remake of GMA-7 fantaserye ‘Encantadia.’
In an interview with GMA News Onlilne, Dizon revealed that the role was specially made for her.
"They created this role especially for me and I'm very happy to be part of it again,” said Dizon.
"As of now, I can't really say pa kung ano yung name ng character and what the character will be. What I can say lang is that it's going to be a big role and it will surely excite the Encatadics," she added.
The actress also congratulated Glaiza De Castro, who will take on her original role as Pirena and gave her a piece of advice: "I know she's going to be great. She just has to stay true to the character."
Sunshine has always been consistent in asking the fans to rally behind the new sang’gres ever since the new cast was introduced to the public.
In a Twitter post, she asked those who criticize the choice of actresses who will play the lead roles in the fantaserye to avoid using hurtful words.
“Let us not be quick to judge and avoid using hurtful words. Instead, let’s celebrate that we are all lucky to witness the magic again,” Dizon’s post read.
“Congratulations to the new sangres, hasne ivo live encantadia!” she added.
When asked to give an advice to the new cast, Dizon just reminded them of the value of treating your co-workers like your family members.
“Best advice is they should all work together as a family. That's how we did it before. Kahit lumalampas kami ng 24 oras sa taping noon, masaya pa rin kami kasi nagtatrabaho kami na parang pamilya," she said.
Apart from Sunshine Dizon, the original cast of ‘Encantadia’ included Karylle as Sang’gre Alena, Diana Zubiri as Sang’gre Danaya, and Iza Calzado as Sang’gre Amihan when the show was first aired in 2005.
The new cast includes Gabbi Garcia as Alena, Sanya Lopez as Danaya, and Kylie Padilla as Amihan apart from Glaiza De Castro who will take on the role previously played by Sunshine Dizon.
