It’s been quite a while since we last saw Gladys Reyes do an antagonist role on-screen. She shared in a recent chat with Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) that her last lead character was in “Oh, My Mama” (2016), but she expressed her longing to do the likes of her iconic roles again.

“Actually, matagal-tagal na akong hindi nananakit (laughs). Nami-miss ko na, actually. Nakaka-miss din eh. Nakakamiss din ‘yong manakit minsan… kasi, parang, alam mo na, comfort zone ko ‘yon. At alam na alam ko naman na manipulahin ‘yon eh.”
Gladys rose to stardom for her antagonistic portrayals back in the 90’s, or the consistent adversary of her usual fellow lead star Judy Ann Santos on TV. Nonetheless, despite how fierce her demeanor was on-screen, the veteran actress shared that she’s the opposite in real life.
“Palagay ko ‘yon din ang maganda. Kasi lahat ng mga inapi ko in the past, nagiging kaibigan ko sa totoong buhay.”

The interviewer then remarked Gladys as “bubbly,” to which the veteran actress seconded and considered it as her “natural high.” She added that she also shows this behavior of hers even to her non-showbiz friends.
Gladys also disclosed in the interview that she does not work for one network only. Thus, she belongs to three network giants as she believes in the mantra: “Don’t [REDACTED] bridges.”
“You’ll never know kung saan ka dadalhin, ‘ika nga, ng pagkakataon. Puwedeng at this point, may magandang role sa ‘yo dito. Baka naman sa susunod na pagkakataon, sa kabilang bakod ka naman. Do’n kailangan ng serbisyo mo. Basta ako, tinatanong nila, “Ano ka ba talaga? Kapuso ka ba, Kapamilya, or Kapatid?’ Ako po ay Katrabaho. Kung saan po kailangan ng serbisyo ko at kung saan ako may trabaho, siyempre, alam niyo naming apat ang mga anak ko. Hindi tayo pwedeng mag-relax relax.”
