MANILA - Former sultry actress Ina Raymundo said that it was her eldest daughter Erika (8), who asked her to accept new acting projects.
Raymundo who is known for her sexy roles in the 90s is now back on television via ABS-CBN's "Precious Hearts Romances: Midnight Phantom."

"Alam mo isa sa reasons kung bakit ako bumalik sa showbiz dahil sa panganay kong anak gustong gusto niya akong makita sa TV ulit. Lalo na afternoon show ito so mapapanood niya ako kasi kapag gabi late na kailangan niyang matulog ng maaga eh ito four o'clock na so tamang tama," Raymundo told abs-cbnNEWS.com.

The actress has now three children by her Canadian husband Bryan Poturnak.

According to Raymundo, in "Midnight Phantom" she will be playing the role of Anya, a  former lounge singer, a bad lady and will be the loving stepmother of Nadia (played by Denise Laurel).

Raymundo who started her career as TV commercial model, said that she is happy to be back on acting and  to work with ABS-CBN.

"Ang saya kapag nandito ako I feel na I belong," Raymundo stressed.

Dubbed as "Sabado Girl," Raymundo said that she is still hoping to do more acting projects especially if it will not affect her schedules as a mother to her two children.

She also admitted that as a mother there are really restrictions in accepting and in doing showbiz projects especifically the kissing and love scenes.

"Yes maraming mga restrictions kasi 'yon ang convictions ko as a mom maraming mga bagay na hindi ko na kayang gawin at hindi na pwede." Raymundo ended.

It will be recalled that it was in 2007 when Raymundo played the role of Reema, the mother of Mythos (played by Rayver Cruz) for ABS-CBN's sci-fic series "Rounin."
