One of the highly-anticipated programs this 2015, GMA Network reimagines television history’s most successful telenovela, Marimar, with the sizzling team up of Kapuso prime artists Tom Rodriguez and Megan Young. The primetime series begins August 25 on GMA Pinoy TV.

Giving a fresh take on the role of Sergio Santibañez is Kapuso Prime leading man, Tom. With his devilishly good looks and compelling charisma, there is no doubt that the Kapuso prime leading man will have viewers swooning.

Coming from the wealthy Santibañez family, Sergio is a spoiled trust fund kid who loves extreme sports and adventure. One day, he meets Marimar and decides to use her to get his inheritance from his father. Little did he know that he will soon fall for the girl who he once used for his selfish plan.

Bringing life anew to the iconic character that exemplifies the best traits of the Filipina barrio lass is Kapuso multi-talented actress, Megan. She is definitely a fitting choice for the character as she represents a woman who is brave with her sense of purpose and has conquered the world with her countenance.

Despite being separated from her real parents at a young age, Marimar was raised filled with love by a couple who found her. Modest and carefree as she’s known to be, Marimar makes money out of being a pearl diver. To sell her pearls in the island, she dances her signature moves to get people’s attention. It is through this instance that Marimar will be noticed by Sergio.

Witness another dimension of acting prowess as Marimar brings together a roster of A-list actors and actresses including Ms. Jaclyn Jose as Señora Angelika Santibañez, the outrageously extravagant and flamboyantly dressed second wife of Renato who likes attention and loves being the center of it all; Zoren Legaspi as Gustavo Aldama, the biological father of Marimar who chooses to fight his love for Mia despite his family’s objection; Lauren Young as Antonia, the pretentious socialite daughter of Angelika who will join her mother in depriving Marimar of everything that was rightfully hers; and the returning Kapuso, Ms. Alice Dixson, as Mia Aldama, the biological mother of Marimar who becomes determined in life after having a whirlwind romance with Gustavo.

Marimar also takes pride in bringing to life once again colorful characters to be portrayed by Nova Villa as Lola Cruz, the woman who gives shelter to Marimar and treats her as her own child; Tommy Abuel as Lola Pancho, the husband of Lola Cruz who will teach Marimar how to dive for pearls; Carmi Martin as Esperanza Aldama, the fabulous business-minded cousin of Gustavo; Ina Raymundo as Brenda, a social and sophisticated woman who will try her best to win Gustavo back; Dion Ignacio as Nicandro, the crooked and dishonest staff officer on the Santibañez Island who is envious of Sergio; Ricardo Cepeda as Renato Santibañez, the kind-hearted and responsible father of Sergio; Jaya as Corazon, the trustworthy chambermaid of the Santibañez family; Cris Villanueva as Padresito Porres, the witty and kind-hearted priest on the island who always encourages Marimar to pursue her dreams; Candy Pangilinan as Perfecta, the personal assistant of Angelika and the greatest rival of Corazon in the mansion; Frank Magalona as Franco, the outspoken companion of Sergio; Ashley Cabrera as Cruzita Santibañez, the charming sister of Sergio who will get close to Marimar; plus Boobay who will give voice to the adorable dog, Fulgoso.

From making the hit TV series, The Rich Man’s Daughter, My Husband’s Lover, Darna, Mulawin, My Beloved, and Temptation of Wife, just to name a few, Dominic Zapata is more than ready to offer viewers a refreshing take on this riveting primetime series.

Aiming to inspire every Filipina to become the best version of herself while fulfilling her dreams, witness the journey of Marimar beginning August 25 on GMA Pinoy TV.

Filipinos across the globe enjoy and experience intense kilig with Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) in the first ever kalyeserye on the longest-runningnoon time show in the Philippines, Eat Bulaga.

 

Their record-breaking tandem, widely known as “AlDub”, started to gain popularity during an episode last July, when Yaya Dub got distracted with Alden who was focused on the split screen. It was not long after that AlDub’s story progressed, and became the talk on social media, not to mention bringing Eat Bulaga to even greater heights in terms of nationwide ratings.

 

During AlDub’s segment last Saturday, August 8, Yaya Dub passed out due to fatigue while supposedly about to get married to Jose Manalo’s character Frankie Arenolli. Jose, together with Wally and the whole production staff, took hold of the situation in a professional manner and kept the show going, while making sure to aide Maine. She was rushed to the hospital and the show continued without her.

 

Later during the day, Maine posted on her Instagram a photo of her with the caption saying that she was not feeling well since the morning. “We’re too busy preparing for the segment that I forgot to take my meds. That’s probably the reason why I passed out during our cue. None of it was scripted. I was immediately rushed to the hospital so I can have myself checked. But nothing to worry, they said it’s all because of over fatigue. Super appreciate all the love and concern from everyone! Rampa na ulit si Yaya Dub!”

 

Meanwhile, Alden was supposed to rush to the wedding to meet Yaya Dub. He tweeted Yaya Dub and said, “Akala ko eto na yung tamang panahon. Get well soon.”

 

AlDub trended all over social media because of this event, and viewers have never been more excited for the love team’s long awaited meeting.

 

GMA’s international flagship channel, GMA Pinoy TV, opens doors for AlDub fans overseas to watch Eat Bulaga and fully experience the fun and excitement of Alden and Yaya Dub’s entertainment.

Love seems to be sweeter the second time around. For a Kapuso love team, that is.

This August, the award-winning actors – Drama King Dennis Trillo and Kapuso leading lady Jennylyn Mercado – reunite for GMA Network’s upcoming series My Faithful Husband.

The two first starred opposite each other in the GMA program Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak.

Exuding undeniable chemistry on-screen, the two play a married couple in the new series, with Dennis as Emman, a doting husband to Melanie, portrayed by Jennylyn, and a devoted father to their children.

The pair’s marriage is tested, however, when Melanie comes across her ex-boyfriend and her feelings get confused.

And while the series has yet to air on GMA Network, fans are already eager to see Dennis and Jennylyn’s reunion project as the two have been posting photos showing them together on their personal Instagram accounts.

Their seemingly sweet posts, along with the hashtag #emmanie (a cross between their characters’ names), have viewers and netizens buzzing about a possible rekindled romance. The two had dated in the past and fans have been clamouring for a real life reunion.

However, the duo remains tight-lipped regarding the issue and prefers to focus on their new show.

Both are thrilled to be working with each other once more on another Kapuso series. “Siyempre excited ako na makatrabaho si Jen. Last time ko siya nakatrabaho five years ago, dramarama sa hapon yung ginawa namin. Ngayon naman sa primetime,” says Dennis.

On her part, Jennylyn is looking forward to how their pair-up will be received. “Excited ako kasi gusto ko rin namang makita kung anong kakalabasan lalo na pag nagsisimula na talaga kami kasi dun natin makikita kung inaabangan ba talaga kami, papanoorin ba kami.”

Catch their exciting portrayals on the drama series My Faithful Husband airing soon on GMA Pinoy TV.

With God’s grace and His perfect timing, this is where we are today. I thank God for all the things that are happening to us right now. To my fiancee, you deserve nothing but goodness and happiness, I love you so much!

Kapuso leading man Rocco Nacino feels lucky that he is given another big project by his home network. GMA7.

He is part of the upcoming primetime series, Beautiful Strangers, which is slated to air next month.

In a recent interview, Rocco said it makes him even more motivated to excel and never stop studying his craft and be a role model for other aspiring actors.

“To know that GMA is taking really, really good care of me by giving me good projects, nakakataba ng puso. It makes me even more humbled and motivated na magtrabaho, kasi naiisip ko na for someone as simple as me can make it, it gives me that responsibility to other people especially the younger ones na nag-aaspire na maging actor din, na kung nagawa ko, kaya rin nila.”

Being a home-grown talent of GMA 7, Rocco is happy with how his career is going right now. In fact, aside from working anew with Kapuso Premier Actress Lovi Poe in Beautiful Strangers, he just ticked off one of the items in his bucket list – finally working with Heart Evangelista in a series.

“Nakakatuwa na gusto ng mga bosses na makatambal ko silang dalawa (Heart and Lovi). So napakaswerte ko. Finally, makakatrabaho ko na si Heart. First time ko to work with her and I’m really, really excited.”

He also considers it a privilege to be working with seasoned Christopher de Leon, Ayen Laurel and Dina Bonnevie that is why he makes sure not to be intimidated by their presence.

“I make it a point not to be intimidated by anyone. It’s my personality. Kahit sino ang kaharap ko, kakausapin ko siya professionally on and off cam. Hindi ako nagpapapressure or nagpapasindak. I always maintain respect pero hindi ko hahayaan na ma-intimidate ako kasi mawawala talaga ako sa game ko.”

Beautiful Strangers premieres this August on GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.
