Actress and yoga instructor Maxene Magalona is glad over her inclusion in “Viral Scandal,” a new ABS-CBN TV series which tackles mental health.
The series also stars Charlie Dizon, Dimples Romana, Jake Cuenca and Joshua Garcia. It is something that Magalona is so proud of and grateful for, as can be seen in her Instagram page yesterday, Oct. 17.
While her acting projects may not come too frequently, Magalona keeps the faith that she will always be blessed with work that aligns with her values. She believes the show “couldn’t have come at a more perfect time” in her life.
“To be part of a project that strongly advocates for mental health and shows the importance of learning how to deal with trauma is truly a dream come true for me,” she said.
“Being a mental health patient/advocate myself, I know how difficult it is to live with inner struggles so to be given an opportunity to be part of a project that aims to help and give hope to others who are experiencing the same mental health issues is truly a blessing.”
Magalona plays Audrey Ramones. She expressed her excitement to be performing “alongside some of the best actors, kindest human beings and sweetest souls.”
“This is my new family and I thank God everyday for allowing our paths to cross in this lifetime,” she added. “I love each and every one of you and I’m so proud to be creating art, feeling love and healing hearts together with you.”
“Viral Scandal” marks the return of Magalona to acting after a few years. She recently spent time living in Indonesia as a yoga practitioner and teacher. JB
