‘Wish Ko Lang’ taps Christopher de Leon for gay role

Award-winning actor Christopher de Leon headlines the second episode of the month-long anniversary specials of “Wish Ko Lang!” this Saturday, July 10.

For the very first time, Christopher takes on the role of a gay man.

For almost two decades now, “Wish Ko Lang!” has been touching the lives of Filipinos with stories that spark hope and inspiration. Its host, GMA News pillar Vicky Morales, is grateful for the public’s continued support of the award-winning public service program and drama anthology.

“I’m very grateful to our viewers. We wouldn’t be around this long kung hindi dahil sa kanila, kung hindi dahil sa paniniwala nila na mahal nila ang program natin as much as we love our program also. Kaya thank you very much sa mga viewer natin. Thank you also sa lahat ng staff ng Wish Ko Lang at sa GMA for believing in the program,” she said.

For its 19th anniversary celebration, the program has prepared five special episodes for the whole month of July.

Last week’s special episode—“Ang Forever ni Miss Virgie”— featured new Kapuso Pokwang as she portrayed the character of a teacher who was so dedicated to work she had no time for romance.

Set to headline the upcoming anniversary episodes of “Wish Ko Lang!” are Albert Martinez, Rhian Ramos, and Sanya Lopez.

Catch “Wish Ko Lang!” this Saturday at 4 pm on GMA Network. Kapuso abroad can also watch it on GMA Pinoy TV.
