On Monday, Sanchez candidly spoke during a media conference for the November 5 finale of the ABS-CBN series about her plan on not accepting any acting projects for at least 6 months to a year.

Sanchez portrayed the mentally challenged Barang in the series, which recently wrapped filming and was currently down to its last 3 weeks on air.

Magpapahinga ako. Talagang sobrang pahinga ngayon. Grateful ako sa role na Barang, pero nakakapagod siya, sobra. After nito, kinausap ko na si Direk Ruel, pahinga muna ako,” Sanchez said, referring to ABS-CBN executive Ruel Bayani.

In the Kapamilya series, the child-like Barang’s mental disability affected her speech and communication skills, but has not prevented her from regaining familial ties and forming close friendships, after being revealed to be the long-lost grandmother of Joy (Francine Diaz) and Mira (Andrea Brillantes).

Sanchez also pointed out that she hasn’t been able to go on a hiatus since 2016 when she top-billed the family drama series “The Greatest Love”.

She then mentioned the successive TV series she starred or guest-starred in before “Huwag Kang Mangamba”: “Hanggang Saan”, “La Luna Sangre”, and “Pamilya Ko”.

Meanwhile, Sanchez expressed gratitude for her recent acting accolades as she’s the national winner in the “Best Supporting Actress” category in the Asian Academy for Creative Arts for her portrayal of Barang; and was also named “Best Actress” by the PMPC Star Awards for Movies for her performance in “Jesusa”.
