Kapuso actress Glaiza de Castro marked another milestone as she bagged the Best Actress award in a TV series for her role in “The Seed of Love” at the 2024 World Class Excellence Japan Award (WCEJA), held at a hotel in Pasay.

The WCEJA is a Japan-based award-giving body founded by Filipino singer, beauty queen, and philanthropist Emma Cordero. It is currently in its 11th edition.


On Instagram, de Castro shared some snaps from the awarding ceremony and thanked the people behind the 2023 drama series.


“Every award and recognition is a reminder that there are people who helped and guided you along the way. This achievement is for the cast and crew of The Seed Of Love! Started before the pandemic, waited for 2 years, and finished with flying colors,” she wrote.

The 36-year-old actress then thanked her brother, Alcris Galura, who received the Best Supporting Actor nod for his role in “Abot Kamay na Pangarap.”

“What made this night even more special was receiving this award with my Best Supporting Actor brother, [Galura], who’s been an inspiration for my acting career. Siya talaga acting coach ko eh. Sobrang proud ako na parte siya ng isa pang successful afternoon soap sa [gmanetwork],” she expressed, thanking as well their parents.

“Bonus na nakapag pa picture pa sa ating National Artist, the one and only superstar Nora Aunor na idol na idol ng nanay ko,” she said.


“Again, thank you, World Class Excellence Japan Awards, for this recognition! Nakaka taba ng puso,” concluded the actress.

Second time for Aunor

Meanwhile, in an interview with 24 Oras, Aunor, who currently stars in the GMA Afternoon Prime series “Lilet Matias, Attorney-At-Law,” shared her sentiments about being honored at WCEJA this year.

“Pangalawa na ‘to na binigay na award sa akin kaya lang [‘yung una] sa Japan kaya hindi ako nakapunta kaya nangako ako dito na pupunta ako,” she said.

When asked about her next projects, the superstar said they were still in the works as she was struggling with being hospitalized from time to time.
