Already a veteran in show business, Jolina Magdangal shared there’s still a lot of roles she wants to play, and hopes for an acting project with Charo Santos.

“Gusto ko makatrabaho si Tita Charo si Ma’am Charo (I would like to work with Tita Charo — Ma’am Charo),” said the actress-singer during an interview uploaded on Star Magic’s YouTube channel.


Magdangal, who has been in the entertainment industry for over 30 years, recalled having a chance to work with Santos while the former was filming for her “Payong Kaibigan” segment of the 90s youth-oriented program “Ang TV.”


“Kasi dati no’ng nakatrabaho ko siya no’ng bata pa ‘ko, parang ininterview ko lang siya (I got to work with her when I was young, but I only sort of interviewed her),” shared the Kapamilya host, who added that they shot the segment’s interview scene while the former ABS-CBN president was on the set of  “Maalaala Mo Kaya.”

The “Magandang Buhay” host, who has appeared in a couple of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” episodes during its 31-year run, mentioned the idea of collaborating in a “drama” that would also cater to Santos’ “forte.”

Aside from the opportunity to work with an actor of Santos’ caliber, Magdangal is also looking forward to learning from the “Kun Maupay Man It Panahon” actress off-cam.

“[G]usto ko siyang makawork kasi alam ko na habang hindi kami nagte-take, maraming-marami akong matututunan [sa kanya] (I would like to work with her because I know that while we’re not filming, I’ll learn so much from her),” she said, adding how there’s learning in just observing Santos’ actions.

Magdangal, who earlier in the interview shared that there’s still a lot of roles she has yet to portray, hopes to take on parts that involve suspense and thriller, if an opportunity outside of hosting comes her way.

After starring in “FlordeLiza,” her first series since returning to the Kapamilya network in 2014, the mom of two mentioned how she had been mostly doing hosting projects.


“Tsaka, ‘yung gusto ko ‘yung [role na] parang hindi mo akalaing siya pala ‘yung masama… Gusto ko mag-kontrabida (And also, I  want a role that, like, you won’t expect is actually the villain… I want to play the role of an antagonist),” she further said.

For seven years now, she has co-hosted “Magandang Buhay” with “Pinoy Big Brother” winner Melai Cantiveros and — since last year — Regine Velasquez, who officially replaced Karla Estrada.
