Watch Oh My Mama October 19 2016 Full Episode Replay
This September, GMA Network brings to light another one-of-a-kind Afternoon Prime series that will forge a connection with the hearts of the televiewers with, Oh My Mama! Replacing the Magkaibang Mundo
This series is the TV adaptation of the 1981 movie with the same title headlined by Diamond Star Maricel Soriano. It tells the story of a teenager who suddenly takes on the role of a mother to five street children while in search for her father’s love.
Newest Kapuso leading lady Inah de Belen takes up the challenge of playing her first lead role as she breathes life to Maricel Reyes, a 17-year-old teenager who longs for the affection of her dad. As she searches for her father, Maricel crosses paths with a syndicated group that kidnaps children to be used as beggars.
To date, this is the most challenging role for Inah since she is tackling a mother role. “My role is very challenging kasi I’m going to deal with kids and I should learn how to act like a mother. My character also is searching for the love of her parent. So ‘yung irony niya, kailangan ko maipakita. Even if I feel pressured, I can use that. That’s my motivation since I want challenge,” she shared.
Adding color to her journey is the arrogant Julio Sta. Ana portrayed by Jake Vargas who will help Maricel and the children escape the faction and will help Maricel in raising them up.
For the Kapuso actor, he cannot contain his excitement to take on his role since it is another milestone for him. “I am excited to play Julio kasi bago ito sa akin. Offbeat ‘yung role ko rito kasi maangas ang character ko at member ako ng sindikato. Wala akong takot gumawa ng mga masasamang bagay and then eventually magiging tatay-tatayan ako ng mga bata,” Jake said.
Completing the love triangle is Jeric Gonzales who plays Zach Ynares, a chick magnet who will fall in love with Maricel. Jeric shares that he is thrilled to represent a role that’s completely different to his personality.
“Challenge sa akin maging si Zach kasi mayabang siya rito at mayaman. Malayo kasi sa personality ko ‘yun. But at the same time, looking forward ako to work kasi it’s a whole new adventure for me. At saka masaya akong katrabaho silang lahat,” the Kapuso actor said.
Joining them are versatile actors Gladys Reyes as Inday Bartolome; Ryan Eigenmann as Efren Ynares; Epi Quizon as Gordon Reyes; Yul Servo as Robert Reyes; Francine Prieto as Patricia Ynares; Arthur Solinap as Rick Rosales; Eunice Lagusad as Sara Bartolome; Ash Ortega as Ariana Gutierrez; Phytos Ramirez as Justin; Jenny Miller as Sabrina Cruz.
Adding star power to this series is the special participation of seasoned actress Sheryl Cruz as Julia Domingo.
The five kids who will become Inah’s children in the series are Therese Malvar as Peewee; Jhiz Deocareza as Bayani; Bryce Eusebio as Bimbo; Sofia Pablo as Nicole and David Remo as Tito.
Find out the adventure of Maricel as she continues to search for the affection of her father. Can Maricel accomplish her role as a mother to the children despite her young age?
