MANILA  (Mabuhay) –Ana Roces, one of the actresses in new primetime series “A Beautiful Affair”, is happy to be back in the Kapamilya Network.

Ana’s last project in ABS-CBN was the defunct Sunday teenage drama “Boys Town” in 2009 before she transferred to GMA 7.

“To work with John Lloyd and Bea on their 10th year, I’m so excited. Fan din ako ng ‘Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay’ and same team lang din ang gumawa nito,” she said of the 2002 drama series.

Ana added: “I’m so happy kasi napakalaking project and to be part of it, I’m so blessed. Thankful din ako because I’m still here after all these years.”

The actress plays Nathalia Saavedra, Bea’s rich and submissive aunt. Off cam, Ana said she and Bea usually talk about fashion and other common stuff.

“Ang galing, ang ganda and sobrang bait ni Bea. Napaka down to earth at para ko lang siyang younger sister pag nag-kwentuhan talaga,” she said.
Since she is playing a vital role, the actress said the challenge is to deliver what is expected of her.

“Dito kasi mabait ako, pero hanggang saan? This is a very much-anticipated teleserye, ang high ng expectation and you’re working with the best actors of their generation. You have to level with them. To maintain that high level, yun ang challenge talaga,” she related.

“A Beautiful Affair” airs weekdays after “Ina, Kapatid, Anak”. (MNS)
