Gladys says, “Awa naman ng Diyos, Nay [Maricel], wala pa akong naka-work na alam mo na, hindi ba? Hindi naman uubra [ang may attitude], hindi ba, Nay?  

As a follow-up, Gladys brings up how Maris amazed her with a solid dedication to the art of acting back when they were taping their film together. 

For her, “Napaka-marespeto ng mga bata naman na nakatrabaho ko. Like, ang first time ko to work with, sa ‘Here Comes the Groom,’ si Maris Racal. Si Maris po is one of the promising and talented actors that we have now.”

Musikera din, ano, iyong bata, and nakita ko rin yung kagustuhan niya doon sa ginagawa niya. Iyong respeto niya sa katrabaho, yung dedication noong bata,” she says.
