There’s a love triangle brewing in GMA Pinoy TV’s My Destiny involving characters portrayed by GMA Artist Center talents Ruru Madrid, Ashley Ortega, and Gabrielle Garcia, making the drama series all the more exciting.
Paul Andrada (Ruru Madrid) finds himself rebelling due to his parents’ looming separation. More conflicts arise as his girlfriend Nicole Perez (Gabrielle Garcia) and Nicole’s best friend Alex Martinez (Ashley Ortega) are dragged in Paul’s occasional snafus.
The love triangle begins when Nicole falls short as a girlfriend to Paul, failing to comfort him. Paul then confides to Alex, and they inevitably grow closer to each other.
When the cameras are not rolling, it’s a completely different story for the three. But if there’s one thing they share in common, it’s how much they enjoy honing their craft.
Ruru Madrid rose to fame in GMA’s reality TV series Protégé: The Battle For the Big Artista Break, where he finished as a runner-up. Shortly after, he landed roles in a string of television series, appeared in drama anthologies, and performed in variety shows, proving that he can sing, dance, and act.
“I’ve learned a lot but I’m still eager to learn more because this is really my passion,” shares Ruru.
In just two years, Ruru has matured from a shy teenager to a more confident 16-year-old matinee idol gaining followers every day.
Ruru’s also slated to make hearts swoon together with his love team with Ashley Ortega. Their tandem is fondly called AshRu.
“I’ve worked with Ash before in Dormitoryo and the movie Bamboo Flowers directed by Direk Maryo J. We develop our friendship every time we get the chance to work together which is why I’m more excited for our team-up to grow,” shares Ruru.l
Ashley echoes the same sentiments. “There’s never a dull moment with Ruru. He is fun to be with and he’s nice so I was really comfortable with our team-up from the beginning,” says Ashley.
According to Ashley, her love team with Ruru, or her budding career, in general, is not to be taken for granted. Playing parts in teleseryes entailed her to put some of her passion like figure skating on hold. However, Ashley is keen to finish her studies.
For Gabrielle Garcia, working alongside some of the most loved and respected figures in the industry is an absolute privilege. Being a newcomer, Gabrielle treats every taping day as a chance to learn about the nitty-gritty of acting.
“My experience made me a lot better in many ways, from getting to know myself more, to acting and dealing with my co-actors. It made me more committed to be part of acting workshops, and it made me eager and inspired to perfect my craft,” says Gabrielle.
