Many viewers are drawn to veteran actress Dimples Romana for her sunshine spirit which she’s able to integrate in any role - whether for heavy drama or comedy. In particular, her mom roles are always a treat to see on television. She’s always got that relatable motherly vibe to her!
To pay tribute to Dimples’ impeccable acting prowess and real-life maternal instincts in time for her birthmonth, we’ve compiled a list of young actresses to whom Dimples have played a mother figure on-screen.
Kathryn Bernardo / Julia Montes — Mara Clara (2010-2011)
It’s been over a decade since Dimples played Alvira del Valle, the biological mother of Mara (Kathryn Bernardo) and foster mother of Clara (Julia Montes) in “Mara Clara.” As Alvira, Dimples effortlessly demonstrated the extent of a mother’s love, which as shown in the series, could become toxic when it’s excessive and biased, but nonetheless irreplaceable.
Last January, Dimples posted a reunion update with Kathryn and Julia whom she fondly calls her “sisters.”
Miles Ocampo — And I Love You So (2015-2016)
In the 2015 drama series “And I Love You So,” Dimples was cast as Michelle Ramirez-Valdez, the mother of Joanna (Miles Ocampo). Being the main anti-hero of the film, Dimples was able to depict both motherly affection and vindictive intensity in one character.
Andrea Brillantes — Kadenang Ginto (2018–2020)
To this day, the character of Daniela Mondragon remains iconic. Dimples' character turned into a viral meme overnight when she strutted in a matching red dress and red luggage in one of the episodes of “Kadenang Ginto.” But there’s definitely more to Daniela than a signature red lip. Dimples brought so much likeable “atribida” energy as the mother of antagonist Marga (Andrea Brillantes).
Charlie Dizon — Viral Scandal (2021)
Now, what excites us the most this year is to see Dimples in her new role as Kakay Sicat in the 2021 drama series “Viral Scandal.” As the hardworking and loving OFW mother of Rica (Charlie Dizon) how far will Dimples go in showing the depth of her character as her daughter falls victim to a sex scandal? We’re confident that Dimples will shine in this role!
Directed by Dado Lumibao and Froy Allan Leonardo, "Viral Scandal" also stars Joshua Garcia, Jake Cuenca, and Miko Raval. It will premiere on November 15 on the Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, and A2Z Channel 11.
