Sylvia Sanchez admits not keen on Arjo Atayde’s political inclination, but still supports her son’s congressional bid

On October 25, seasoned Kapamilya actress Sylvia Sanchez admitted that she didn’t want her son Arjo Atayde to run for Congress.

During the media conference for Huwag Kang Mangamba: The Healing Finale, Sanchez said that she didn’t want her son to run for office, but had expressed her support to Atayde’s decision to campaign for Congress.

“Kabado ako syempre dyan. Kabado ako syempre anak ko ‘yun. Alam naman nating magulo ‘yung politika di ba? Pero wala akong magawa, gusto ng anak ko. So nire-respeto ko ‘yung gusto ng anak ko. 

“Actually, kung ako ang tatanungin, ayaw ko. Alam ng anak ko at alam ni Enchong ‘yun. Nag-usap kami diyan ni Enchong. Ayaw ko, pero gaya nga ng sabi ko, anak ko ‘yan eh. Wala akong magawa kung hindi suportahan na lang ang anak ko. Iga-guide ko na lang ng mabuti ang anak ko para hindi naman maligaw.

“‘Yun ang pinapangako naming mag-asawa. Kabado, Yes. Pero, suporta 1000%.”

Sanchez also revealed that ABS-CBN’s shutdown pushed Atayde to run for office.

“Hanggang nasara ang ABS, ‘yun talaga ‘yung pinaka nalungkot siya, nagalit siya, nalungkot siya sa lahat ng Kapamilya, sa mga kaibigan sa loob, mga Kapamilya lahat na natanggalan ng trabaho tapos pandemic pa. ‘Yun talaga ‘yung ano niya, pinakarason niya, isa sa mga pinakarason niya.

“Magandang rason ‘yun kasi sabi niya, ‘Ma ang daming naghihirap, ang daming kawawang Kapamilya. Gusto ko lang silang tulungan. Alam mo ‘yung ganon.’

“Normal may maghihirap talaga, pero sana walang maghirap sa gitna ng pandemya. Sa gitna ng COVID. Nakikita niya lahat ng paghihirap, so mas pursigido siya na tumakbo. Yes, because of ABS kaya din tatakbo si Arjo, isa ‘yan sa mga reason.”

Recently, Atayde filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) to run for the first district of Quezon City in the upcoming 2022 elections.

As for her acting career, Sanchez thanked ABS-CBN and Dreamscape for her role of Barang in Huwag Kang Mangamba. However, she admitted that it was challenging and draining.

“Dahil honestly grateful ako kay Barang, sa role na Barang. And, sir Deo, sir Rondell, miss Kylie, kayo po talaga ‘yung kumausap sa akin sa umpisa. Maraming salamat sa inyo na pinagkatiwala ninyo sa akin itong role na si Barang. Pero aaminin ko po nahirapan ako dito. Tiring and draining talaga si Barang.

“Kasi ‘yung character na Barang, hindi siya thinking character, instinctive si Barang. Kumu-connect siya, automatic, naturally ku-connect sa lahat ng tao. So [sighs] medyo napagod ako, pero sobra-sobra akong nagpapasalamat sa role na ito. Kaya Dreamscape and ABS-CBN maraming salamat dahil pinagkatiwalaan ninyo ako ulit ng napakaimportanteng role.”

She also noted that she plans on taking a hiatus from showbiz after portraying the challenging role.

As for the series, watch Sanchez along with the series leads Andrea Brillantes and Francine Diaz in its remaining three weeks of the series, Huwag Kang Mangamba: The Healing Finale, available on Kapamilya Channel, TV5, Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, TFC, WeTV, and iflix.
