Maymay Entrata could not help her tears as she answered a question about playing an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) during the grand media conference of the upcoming romance-drama Hello, Love, Goodbye last night, July 9.

The movie, which features OFWs in Hong Kong, has a special place in the young actress’ heart as her mother has been working in Japan for 28 years.

Hindi po talaga kami nagsama sa isang bubong,” Maymay narrated, her eyes almost in tears. “Hindi po talaga magiging madali ‘yong [pagiging] OFW. ‘Yong malayo ka sa pamilya mo, at saka ‘yong pangungulila--’yong miss mo ‘yong pamilya mo dito.”

Maymay also expressed her gratitude for finally compensating for her mother’s sacrifices through her career in showbiz.  

Sobrang proud na proud ako sa nanay ko [at] sa lahat ng mga OFW. Saludo ako sa inyo dahil hindi mahirap ang ginagawa niyo,” Maymay went on.

It could be recalled back in January when Maymay posted a heartfelt message about her OFW mother and her realizations about OFWs around the globe.

Ngayon mas naintindihan ko na kung gaano kasakit mawalay sa mahal mo sa buhay para lang matustusan ang pangangailangan nila. Mahal na mahal kita ma alam mo yan.” she said on her past Instagram post. “Kaya sa lahat po ng OFW, ako po ay saludo sa sakripisyo, pagtitiis, at pagmamahal ng walang katumbas para lang mabigyan ang mahal nyo sa buhay ng magandang kinabukasan.”

Maymay then told the press how she related to her character in the upcoming Cathy Garcia-Molina flick to her real life situation, seeing how she is miles away from her family with the rest of her relatives in the province and her mom in Japan.

Parang ‘yong ginawa niya (nanay) ay hindi naging mahirap sa akin na [i-pasok] doon sa character ko dito sa Hello, Love, Goodbye,” she explained.

When asked if there is a possibility that her mother might ask her to live in Japan with her, Maymay said it is a long process, but is praying long and hard for them to be together again.

May half-brother po kasi ako doon so marami pa akong dapat planuhin,” she said. “Hindi po siya madali.”

Maymay is set to appear in Hello, Love, Goodbye starring Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards. The movie will premiere on July 31 in cinemas nationwide.
