MANILA, Philippines – Kapamilya actresses Anne Curtis and Bea Alonzo are set to star in new primetime teleseryes this 2014.
On January 9, Anne Curtis announced on Twitter that she has been chosen to star as Dyesebel in a television remake of Mars Ravelo's graphic novel, an iconic piece in Pinoy pop culture. The announcement rapidly spread throughout social media and became one of the trending topics in the Philippines.
Hi, I Am Dyesebel. See you all sa Primetime Bida SOON. ❤️— Anne Curtis-Smith (@annecurtissmith) January 9, 2014
According to ABS-CBN, Curtis considers the role as a "dream come true." The actress, who is no stranger to starring in fantaseryes, said she will do whatever it takes to give justice to the role.
"Sinasabi ko noon dream role ko Dyesebel. So ito na, 2014. Great way to start the year, " she said in a press conference. (I was saying before that Dyesebel is my dream role. Here it is, 2014. Great way to start the year.)
Dyesebel has been remade several times since the 1950s, the most recent being GMA-7's television series in 2008 starring Marian Rivera. Other actresses who have played the role are Vilma Santos, Alma Moreno, Alice Dixson, and Charlene Gonzales.
Curtis is set to star alongside Gerald Anderson and Sam Milby.
Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon
Curtis isn't the only Kapamilya actress whose year is off to a good start. Bea Alonzo has been signed up for a lead role in primetime drama Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon, reported Pep.ph.
In a press conference held January 9, Alonzo admitted to feeling both nervous and excited to be working with veteran actors such as Susan Roces, Anita Linda, and Ronaldo Valdez.
The actress was discreet about her role, explaining to the press that describing her character would entail disclosing details about the plot.
Alonzo described the story as a "riddle" where the character's destinies are somehow intertwined.
"Isa siyang istorya ng dalawang babae na meron pang susulpot na pangatlo na which is going to be played by me," she told the press. (It's a story about two women, then a 3rd one comes out, which is going to be played by me.) – Rappler.com
