Wish Ko Lang continues with its month-long December Specials featuring some of the country’s esteemed female actors. This Saturday, December 18, no less than veteran actress Jean Garcia headlines the story “The Affair” with Arnold Reyes, Arny Ross, Crystal Paras, and Dentrix Ponce.
"Lahat na halos ng roles yata nagawa ko na, pero ang special sa akin dito sa Wish Ko Lang na episode was first time ko nakatrabaho ang mga artista na kasama ko dito," Jean shared. "I am truly excited and sobrang happy and proud. At di po ako nagkamali sa excitement ko kasi napakaganda po ng episode namin at napakagaling po nilang lahat."
In the said Wish Ko Lang special, Jean plays Anita, a wife and mom who will do everything for her children.
"Katulad ng halos lahat ng nanay, gagawin ni Anita ang lahat para sa pamilya lalong-lalo na pag mga anak na ang pinag-uusapan. Ginawa n'ya ang lahat para itaguyod at ipaglaban ang mga anak n'ya hanggang huli," the Kapuso actress says about her character.
In the story, couple Anita and Noel (Arnold) have been living happily even though life is hard. They are trying their best to raise their two children: Jeff (Dentrix), who has a mental disability, and Hazel (Crystal), their firstborn. Hazel dreams of continuing high school and later pursuing a college degree since her parents were not able to finish their studies.
One day, Anita's friend Ruby (Arny) visits them. Having worked abroad, she convinces Noel to go with her to Italy. Noel leaves his family with a promise that he will make their life better.
But three years passed and Noel suddenly stopped getting in touch with his family–from the video calls to the money he used to send back home–everything was gone. It turns out he and Ruby are having an affair. As they get richer, Anita and their children continue to suffer. Worse, Anita has kidney disease. She goes after Noel but to no avail, he doesn’t want to go back to her. Anita’s condition deteriorates and she begs Noel to support even just their children. With Anita on her deathbed and their father gone, how will Christmas be for Hazel and Jeff?
"The Affair" is the third story featured in Pasko ng Pag-asa: The Wish Ko Lang Christmas Specials, where each episode for the whole month of December is bannered by a female lead.
When asked about her wish this Christmas, Jean says she wishes for this pandemic to end. "Sana matapos na ang pandemic na ito. I wish that despite ng mga pagsubok na pinagdadaanan at dinadaanan pa rin natin hanggang sa ngayon, palagi tayong maging masaya at matibay kasama ang ating mga mahal sa buhay. Na sana huwag mawawala ang faith natin sa Panginoon, na lahat ng nangyayari sa atin ay may rason at ibibigay ng Panginoon ang totoong magpapasaya sa puso natin sampu ng ating pamilya at ng lahat, in time."
