ABS-CBN’s new contract star, Jewel Mische, is making her acting debut on longest-running drama anthology “Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK).”
Mische said she is honored to appear in the the award-winning television program.
"It feels great. Bata pa lamang ako ay natatandaan kong pinapanood ko ang mga episode ng MMK. I'm just so privileged to be here right now at bilang ito ang aking unang project [sa ABS-CBN]," Mische said.
In the episode, Mische's character will fall in love with her gay best friend to be portrayed by Baron Geisler.
"Dapat abangan nila ang istorya on how it will develop," Mische said.
The 20-year-old actress was also happy to be paired with Geisler, considered one of the great actors of his generation.
"Sa akin pong pagkakaalam at impormasyon na natanggap ay magaling gumanap sa kung anumang role niya ngayon. Kasi po sinabi sa akin na ‘yong role na ito ay very few lang ang pinagpilian and they really picked Baron for it," Mische said.
Mische, a product of GMA 7's reality-based talent search, made a big leap as she signed a 2-year exclusive contract with ABS-CBN's Star Magic.
She said: "I feel very much welcomed. Noong isang araw pa lang ay kinakausap na ako ni Tita Mariole (Alberto of Star Magic) at ang mga taong involved ay nagre-reach out para i-welcome ako, para maging kumportable ako sa first taping day," the actress said.
After MMK, Mische is looking forward to her first ABS-CBN TV series titled "Bagwis" opposite Gerald Anderson.
