“Maalala Mo Kaya” host Charo Santos was thrilled with the experience of dubbing her lines in English for ABS-CBN’s drama anthology, which will begin airing in 41 African countries by January 2023.
“I’ve never imagined in my wildest dreams that I’ll be dubbing in English for foreign audiences, especially at my age,” said Charo, who has been the sharing real-life stories of letter senders on the weekly show for over 30 years.
The MMK host and former president of ABS-CBN looks forward to dubbing in more languages to showcase the Filipino talent in storytelling and content.
“I hope I get more opportunities to dub in other languages; maybe one day I’ll be dubbing in French, German or maybe Korean. I am excited to showcase to the foreign market the finest Filipino programs we have here,” she added.
As ABS-CBN continues to bring world-class Filipino programs of all genres to foreign audiences, Charo believes that there are endless opportunities for our content to compete globally“The stories we have will surely resonate with them as there are similarities in terms of experiences and values we share. It’s the same human conditions, same dreams and same aspirations, so our content is really able to touch the lives of other people,” she said.
The iconic program joins the long list of ABS-CBN shows that have been dubbed in different languages and are currently seen in various countries all over the world.
It is also being streamed as an in-flight entertainment program for various international airlines, including Etihad Airways, Royal Brunei Airlines and Saudia. (Story/Photos by:Kane Choa)
