Claudine Barretto returns to MMK after 20 years

Claudine Barretto return in MMKAfter the massive success of her comeback film Etiquette for Mistresses, the Optimum Star Claudine Barretto is returning to television via the longest running drama anthology series, Maalaala Mo Kaya, this Saturday. It will be Claudine’s third appearance in the top-rating and multi-awarded Kapamilya program. Her previous appearances in MMK were way back in 1993 (Walkman) and 1996 (Valentine Card), more than twenty years ago.

For her upcoming MMK episode, Claudine will portray the role of Leni, a woman who was sexually abused by her own father at a very young age. Joining her in the cast are Gardo Versoza, who will play Leni’s abusive father, and teen actress Mika Dela Cruz as her younger sister. It will be directed by Jerry Lopez Sineneng and written by Benjamin Logronio. The episode will be aired this Saturday after Home Sweetie Home on ABS-CBN.

Claudine’s MMK episode is highly anticipated by fans who missed their idol after leaving the Kapamilya network to transfer to rival station GMA in 2009. Good public reception may lead to bigger projects such as a teleserye where she can reclaim her status as a force to reckon with in television drama.
