Diana Zubiri recalls happy ‘Bubble Gang’ experience
“Encantadia” star Diana Zubiri recently returned to the Philippines from Australia and got to reunite with her fellow original Sang’gres. But something seemed missing in her homecoming.
In a media interview, Zubiri said she wanted to appear in Bubble Gang again, even as a guest star, but her schedule did not permit it.
“Kinukuha nga ako ng Bubble Gang last week, kaso lang hindi talaga ako puwede. Sayang talaga. Noong time na nagbakasyon ako sa kanila, yun talaga ang wini-wish ko, na sana makabalik ako,” she said.
The Filipino actress stated that being part of the comedy show was one of the best moments of her career because of the cheerful experience she had with the team.
“Napaka-light ng taping, ‘tapos yung friendship with the comedians. Napakasaya kasi tawa ka lang nang tawa, ang saya-saya, tapos puro pagkain. Alam mo yun, sino ba naman ang ayaw makasama yung mga ganung tao, di ba?” said Zubiri.
Memorable Bubble Gang segment
The former Bubble Gang mainstay recalled her memorable moments in the longest-running Philippine comedy show.
“Noong time na yun, hindi naman ako talaga magaling mag-comedy, di ba? Pa-sexy-sexy lang. Siguro, yung ginagawa namin yung SexBomb Girls… Mayroong segment doon na mukha lang kaming tangang nagsasayaw. Happy lang kahit mukha kaming tanga. Alam namin na pagtatawanan kami kasi mukha kaming tanga,” she reminisced.
The 38-year-old actress also mentioned Michael V (Bitoy) as the Bubble Gang co-star that she is most grateful for.
“Si Kuya Bitoy, wala akong masabi kasi yung guidance na binibigay niya sa amin noon. Sabi ko nga, hindi naman ako komedyante,” Zubiri explained.
“Tapos, noong time na nga nawala ako sa Bubble Gang, sabi niya, ‘Oh, bumalik ka na,’ siya pa yung naggaganun,” the actress added.
Zubiri currently resides in Australia with her husband Andy and three kids: son King and daughters Aliyah Rose and Amira Jade.
Diana was part of the “Bubble Gang” from 2003 to 2009.
