ABS-CBN Channel 2’s top-rating afternoon teleserye titled ‘Galema: Anak ni Zuma’ is nearing its finale in just three weeks as announced in the recently concluded grand press conference at The Lounge on Tomas Morato, Quezon City on Tuesday, March 11.
The three leads—Matteo Guidicelli, Andi Eigenmann, and Sheryl Cruz together with the master storyteller-director Wenn V. Deramas were in attenfance.
“It’s going to be an action-packed three-week run for the series,” said Eigenmann.
Deramas, made mention that to provide a more impactful ending, “We have to make conflicts between Galema, Galela, and Zuma in a more intense manner.
Cruz’s character as Galela would have a 360 degree transformation. From being a human rape victim of Zuma, she will become a monster in the concluding parts of the series.
Deramas also stressed that even though they have based Galela’s transformation to a Gorgon in Greek Mythology, generally described as half-human and half-serpent; having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair; still they chose to make Galela not having snakes as hair.
“Yes, like Medusa, she has turned into a monster, but her hair was not like that of Valentina; we just pegged on the hairstyle of Zsa Zsa Padilla’s famous hairstyle in the 90s.”
The biggest surprise during the press con was the appearance of the green creature Zuma portrayed by the hunky model Derick Hubalde.
Watch how the ending would be as Galema battles against her daughter Sophia and her mother, Galela. Its timeslot is at 4:20pm.
