She prepared hard for the role. “I trained with real lawyers para malaman ang culture nila and then I also stayed with blind people sa school for the blind para maramdaman ko how it really feels to lose your eyesight. Malaki rin ang tulong sa akin ng director namin who guides me each taping day, si Tito Ricky Davao, na relative ko talaga kasi his wife, Tita Jackielou is the sister of my dad (Ramon Christopher).”
Ricky also plays her dad in the story, who was imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit so she studied hard to finish law to defend him. Her mom is played by Chanda Romero, with Lauren Young and Therese Malvar as her two younger sisters. Rodjun Cruz plays her boyfriend who she dumps when she sees him kissing Lauren. Mikael Daez later becomes her leading man without knowing that he is the brother of her rapist, Marc Abaya. Also in the cast are Petra Mahalimuyak (now known as Ashley Rivera) as Janine’s best friend, Camille Torres as Mikael’s first girlfriend who’s trying to win
him back and Lucho Ayala as Mikael’s best friend.
Was she traumatized by her last relationship, with Elmo Magalona? “No, he has nothing to do with my decision. Ako kasi, bukod sa ‘Legally Blind’, I’m now also hosting ‘Day Off’ with Ken Chan sa GMA News TV so sobrang busy talaga ako. At saka, sobrang nakapag-move on na ako from that. Masaya naman maging single. Basta sa ngayon, nakakontrata ako sa sarili ko lang. Wala akong ibang pagkakaabalahan this year kundi trabaho lang. Happy ako being focused on my work.”
