Mikee Quintos and Kelvin Miranda are hoping to inspire young dreamers with their upcoming GMA News TV fantasy romance series “The Lost Recipe.”
In an interview with GMA News Online on Tuesday, Mikee and Kelvin said they hoped to inspire their fellow youth to hold onto their dreams.
“Siguro po kasi talagang makikita dito hindi pa totally buo yung plano para sa pag-buo ng mga character and storya pero parang ang nakikita ko siguro kung paano hawakan yung mga pangarap and yung mga goals natin sa buhay,” Kelvin told GMA News Online.
“Makikita talaga ng viewers kung paano alagaan, kung paano dapat ’yung pag-atake pagdating sa mga pangarap natin sa mga buhay,” he added.
Mikee said she wanted the show to be a source of inspiration for the viewers as the world goes through hardships.
“Sana even with what’s going on now sa mundo, sa buong mundo, this show will somehow give hope and inspire people na don’t be afraid to dream pa rin and chase your dreams and it’s OK to fall in love. Kailangan ko rin matutunan ’yun sa sarili ko,” she said.
The two actors also shared some of the realizations they had the past few months amid the pandemic that they would incorporate into their characters Apple (Mikee) and Harvey (Kelvin).
Kelvin said he learned it’s OK to make mistakes because it teaches a person and pushes them to grow to reach their dreams.
“Nalaman ko na hindi dapat tayo matakot sa mga pagkakamali natin kasi yung pagkakamali yung talaga yung nagtuturo satin ng mga tamang bagay para pumunta tayo sa goals, sa dreams natin,” he said.
“Hindi ko rin naman na hinihikayat na magkamali yung mga tao no pero wag lang matakot magkamali. Ibig sabihin kung ano yung gusto mong gawin, kung ano yung gusto mong abutin, abutin mo siya. Kung bumagsak ka man meron pa rin namang tyansa para tumayo. Malay mo sa susunod mo na pagtayo may tungtungan na para mas maabot mo siyang ng mas madali,” he added.
He said he learned that he shouldn’t be afraid of making mistakes. “Puwedeng mai-ano ko rin siya kay Harvey kasi halos ganon ko naiintindihan ko kasi yung character ko, so yun din yung puwede kong maihambing sa character ni Harvey.”
Mikee said she thought “it’s never too late to chase your dream because personally five years na ako sa showbiz this month and it’s been a rollercoaster ride of emotions and I’ve been so lucky to work with great people in the industry.”
“Pero hindi ko maiiwasan na na siyempre yung ilang months din na nasa bahay ka, mapapaisip ka na now that this is happening, it’s not too late to chase the other dreams that you have. Like I realized hindi ko masyado nabigyan ng time yung music career ko the past few years so I really wanna work on that too,” she shared.
With this realization Mikee said, “pwede ko siya ma-incorporate kay Apple na in real life I am a dreamer. I think it’s something similar sa character ni Apple na for her to be an aspiring chef.”
“It's a very competitive industry, yung cooking world, so gusto ko ipasok yun yung realization ko na yun sa pagkatao ni Apple,” she added.
This will be the first time Mikee and Kelvin will be starring in a show together.
In a report on “24 Oras” last week, the two expressed their excitement with their new roles.
“The Lost Recipe” will premiere on GMA News TV in January 2021.
Kelvin previously appeared on Kapuso drama “Madrasta” and the 2019 Netflix film “Dead Kids.”
Mikee, meanwhile, played Lira on the “Encantadia” remake and appeared on “Onanay” and “The Gift.” – RC, GMA News
