Actress Andi Eigenman returns to television after her recently-concluded hit drama series, "Kahit Puso'y Masugatan," this time as a daughter of snake-man Zuma --popularized in the 1970's Aliwan Komiks.

Eigenmann will be playing Galema, in a "fantaserye" directed by Wenn Deramas. In the immortal Pinoy Komikserye penned by writer Jim Fernandez, Galema is the daughter of Zuma - the green-skinned monster having a two-headed snake on his shoulders.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, it said although she has already been informed of her being cast in the role of Zuma's daughter, Eigenmann is cautious about getting her hopes up. "Kahit na nakalatag na, parang hanggang naka-costume na ako, ayoko muna umasa," she said.

Referring to her showbiz commitments currently lined up, the single mom said she had not anticipated that her comeback from her pregnancy would come at this pace.

"Hindi naman ako umasa na tuluy-tuloy agad darating sa akin. Parang sa 'kin, 'yun ang gusto kong mangyari, pero hindi para i-expect ko siya to keep coming and coming, (I didn't really expected things to continue pouring in, they just keep on coming and coming.)" she said.

"I want to work hard for what I do, and I want to show people how dedicated I am to my job," she said.

In 1985, a movie version was made featuring Snooky Serna playing the role of Galema and Max Laurel as the evil Zuma.

Eigenmann also gleefully related her upcoming projects at the sidelines of the filming of a big-screen remake of the 1983 film "Nagalit ang Buwan sa Haba ng Gabi.(Anger of the Moon in an Endless Night)"

The Andoy Ranay-directed film is the first of three projects Eigenmann will be juggling in the coming months.

"Dito po, anak po ako ni Tito Gabby (Concepcion) at ni Ms. Alice (Dixson). Sobrang opposite po ito sa ginawa kong huli, which is 'A Secret Affair,' (I play the daughter of Tito Gabby and Ms. Alice. This will be an opposite of what I did in 'A Secret Affair')" she said.

In the romance-drama film, Eigenmann portrayed an impulsive young woman bent on winning the heart of a committed man.

"Dito naman ('Nagalit ang Buwan sa Haba ng Gabi'), sobrang wala siyang social life, andun lang siya sa bahay, nag-aaral, ginagawa lang niya kung ano ang gusto ng mga magulang niya. (In the movie, my character has no social life, she just study, do what her parents asks her to do)," she said.

This character, Eigenmann said, offers a contrast to her portrayal in another Viva Films project "Oh My Mamma Mia" where she will star alongside Maricel Soriano, Eugene Domingo and Luis Manzano.

Eigenmann is excited about the comedy film, which had its story conference on Saturday.
