Dawn Zulueta Considers Herself So Lucky

Dawn Zulueta said she is fortunate to have been given the opportunity to continue her passion for acting despite being in her mid 40s.

The mother-of-two returned on television in 2011 when she did the remake of the original 1997 hit series ‘Mula Sa Puso’ opposite Enrique Gil, JM De Guzman, Lauren Young, Eula Valdez and Ariel Rivera.

After the show ended, she immediately signed up for ‘Walang Hanggan’ topbilled by Julia Montes and Coco Martin.

The said series was also her reunion project with perennial love team, actor Richard Gomez.

She really considers herself so lucky because at her age, she does not really expect that people are still looking for her and want her in their projects, said Dawn.

Dawn was more surprised when people were raving on her come back team-up with Richard.

She said it feels like the 90s again, but this time they have younger audience cheering for them.

Dawn also did ‘Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin’ with Rayver Cruz, Cristine Reyes, Gerald Anderson, Tonton Gutierrez and Dina Bonnevie, which ended mid November.

It is difficult to maintain a successful showbiz career and a happy family life, and that is why she is thankful for the undying support and love of husband, Davao Del Norte Representative Anton Lagdameo.

She said her husband and children will remain her utmost priority.

It is really a balancing act because she has to make time for the kids and she cannot forget her responsibilities as a mom and wife, she said.

Right after the New Year, the actress will be back on television via ‘You’re My Home’ opposite Gomez.

Dawn dismissed rumors that the new project will not push through because Richard will be busy helping his wife, Leyte Representative Lucy Torres-Gomez, in rehabilitation of typhoon-hit province of Ormoc.

The actress said they will start taping for the series this week and will take a short break just in time for Christmas and New Year.

As a matter of fact, next week they will prepare for the pilot taping. (The airing is next year) but hopefully not too early next year.

Aside from the teleserye, Richard and Dawn will be featured in one movie set for release on the latter part of 2014.
