Supposedly, Gabby Concepcion was going to play the father of Richard Gutierrez in the latter’s upcoming teleserye(rumored to be with Carla Abellana and Sarah Lahbati) in GMA 7. Everything was OK but Gabby changed his mind and picked ABS-CBN’s offer instead. Gabby will be paired with the newest Kapamilya transfree, Iza Calzado.
Nag-back out nga si Gabby Concepcion para gumanap na ama ni Richard Gutierrez sa bagong primetime series nito sa GMA-7.
Maayos na raw na nakausap na ng mga taga-Kapuso si Gabby at okey na raw ang lahat, pero bigla raw umayaw na ito dahil mas pinili raw niya ang isang series sa ABS-CBN 2.
Hindi ito ang unang pagkakataon na tumanggi si Gabby sa offer ng GMA-7.
Kung matatandaan ay nakausap na ng mga taga-GMA Films si Gabby noong nasa USA pa ito para lumabas sa pelikulang ITALY: I Trust And Love You. Umoo na ito at bahala na nga ang GMA Films sa pamasahe at accommodations niya rito sa Pilipinas.
Noong magbigay na raw ng schedule for shooting, bigla itong nag-back out. Si Dennis Trillo ang pinalit sa role niya.
Ayon sa aming source, ayaw nga raw na gumanap pa ni Gabby bilang ama ni Richard. Sa series na tinanggap niya sa Dos ay si Iza Calzado raw ang makakatambal niya. (source)
So why do you think Gabby Concepcion changed his mind in playing Richard’s father? Is it because it’ll be awkward to play the father of a Man who made 2 movies with his daughter KC and almost ALMOST became KC’s boyfriend? Or perhaps, ABS-CBN’s offer is really much better and maybe Gabby will find “growth”(hardy har har) in this project?
Do you think Gabby is too old to play opposite Iza Calzado? I mean the guy has daughters whose ages are close to Iza’s. But then again, Gabby played opposite Claudine Barretto in Iisa Pa Lamang back in 2008. Well, whatever Gabby’s reason is for backing out in the GMA 7 project with Richard Gutierrez, I’m sure he’ll explain it sometime, somehow, the best way he knows how, HEH!
