MANILA, Philippines -- Actress Gladys Reyes is taking a break from her trademark villain roles as she topbills a "Maalaala Mo Kaya" episode this Saturday, October 20.

"It's a wrap!! MMK taping done! Please don't miss it on Saturday," Reyes said on her official Twitter account, adding that she shot the episode in Iba, Zambales and San Ildefonso in Bulacan.

In Saturday's episode, Reyes plays Letty, a dedicated teacher of Aetas living in remote areas. But because of her commitment to her students, her relationship with her family suffers to the point that her family suggests that she stop teaching.

Joining Reyes in her “MMK” episode are stars James Blanco, Kiray Celis, Khaycee Aboloc, Carlo Lacana, Jerome Ventinilla, Tommy Abuel, Buddy Palad, Joe Vargas, and Thou Reyes.

The story was researched by Alexandra Martin and written by Joan Habana. The episode is directed by Mae Cruz.
