Mickey Ferriols loses weight; thanks ABS-CBN for ultimatum
Actress Mickey Ferriols said that she deliberately lost weight to be part of ABS-CBN’s upcoming television series “Dyosa” which stars actress Anne Curtis.
“It’s because of Sir Enrico Santos and Ms. Charo Santos’ ultimatum, because when we were about to start taping for ‘Dyosa’, they wanted to see me. They want to make sure that I will fit the role as Dyosa’s mother. So I had to look good and better than I did since I really gained weight before,” the actress told abs-cbnNEWS.com.
She added that since she already lost weight, she is now trying to continue her diet.
“Iyong gym, wala. dinadaan ko lang talaga sa discipline ng pagkain,” she said.
Ferriols said that dieting is one of her ways to thank the Kapamilya network for entrusting her with the role.
The actress said doing the series is another blessing for her. Aside from “Dyosa”, she is also doing a series with actress Judy Anne Santos also for ABS-CBN entitled “Humingi Ka Sa Langit” directed by Andoy Ranay.
She is also doing a television show “Kuwentong Disyerto” for TFC aired every Friday with TJ Manotoc.
Working in "Dyosa"
Ferriols said that she is blessed that she was given a chance to do a project with Curtis and well-acclaimed director Wenn Deramas.
“Si direk Wenn ang bilis pero hindi nasa-sacrifice iyong quality ng palabas. He is very efficient when it comes to time. Kay Anne naman nagkasama na kami sa "Hiram" and this is the first time na magka-eksena kaming ganito. Nakaka-flatter, ang ganda ng anak ko and she’s the kind of person (who's) beautiful inside and out,” Ferriols said.
She also praised her other co-stars in “Dyosa” like actors Zanjoe Marudo, Luis Manzano and Sam Milby by saying that the actors are really kind-hearted, very funny and humble.
Mickey's family life
Ferriols is a mother of a two-year-old boy. She said that she and her partner Archie Alemania are planning to have another child by next year.
“Kasi next year si Brent will be three and half… I’m not getting any younger kumbaga gusto ko nang tapusin kaya naglalagare kami ngayon ni Archie para in preparation for sending Brent to school and having another baby,” Ferriols said.
She also said that given a chance, she would like to go back to her first love which is hosting.
"Yun ang dream ko makabalik ako sa first love ko, sana lang. Pero kung hindi, okay lang. Ang daming binibigay sa akin ni God magrereklamo pa ba ako," Ferriols said.
