GMA Network is once again innovating content as it showcases an edgy theme never been tackled on Philippine TV, that of living with someone who has Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).

Beginning January 28, another compelling series will captivate the hearts of the Kapuso viewers as GMA Pinoy TV presents a highly-stimulating and thought-provoking drama through Rhodora X.

Rhodora X challenges us to review how deeply we know our loved ones. It is an invitation so difficult to refuse as it ushers us to discover the nuances of our own personal relationships.

The show stars Jennlyn Mercado, Mark Anthony Fernandez, Mark Herras and Yasmien Kurdi,

Jennylyn takes on a new and challenging role as Rhodora/Roxanne. Rhodora, as a young girl, experienced extremephysical and emotional abuse when she was abducted and taken away from her family. This experience eventually led her to develop another persona inside of her. When she was saved and gets reunited with her family, her Dissociative Identity Disorder (more commonly known as split personality) starts to manifest. Rhodora’s alter ego, Roxanne starts to emerge.

Roxanne is a confident and smart woman but also scheming and manipulative. She hates her sister Angela so much to the point that she will do everything to get what Angela has – the affection of their mother and Angela’s love, Joaquin.

Meanwhile, Yasmien plays the role of Angela. She blames herself for Rhodora’s kidnapping. But when Rhodora finally gets reunited with them, Angela becomes all the more happy and content because her family is once again complete and she is also set to marry Joaquin.

However, everything changes when Angela was framed and put to jail. When she sees an opportunity to escape, she ends up in an ancestral house where she will later find out that it was Rhodora who framed her. She did not know that it was really Rhodora’s alter ego Roxanne who did it. Although she went back to prison, she vows revenge against Rhodora.

Playing the leading men in the series are Mark Herras and Mark Anthony Fernandez.

Mark Herras plays the role of Joaquin, Angela’s fiancé. He is shocked when Angela allegedly kills his secretary out of jealousy. Thus, their wedding is cancelled. It is only Rhodora who is there for him in this trying time and because of her presence, he falls for Rhodora and marries her. Little does Joaquin know, Rhodora has a split personality and that alter ego Roxanne is the one who framed Angela for murder.

On the other hand, Mark Anthony’s character is Nico. He owns the ancestral home Angela ends up in. He feels for Angela since he also has a grudge against Joaquin’s family and eventually he falls in love with her. When Angela is finally free, he is the one who will help get her life back on track and both of them plan revenge against Rhodora and Joaquin.

Will Rhodora overcome her illness or will Roxanne, her alter ego, take over? Will Rhodora still be loved and accepted by her family in spite of her DID? Will she and Angela be able to forgive each other?

Directed by Albert LangitanRhodora X also stars Gardo Versoza as Derick, the doting father of Rhodora and Angela; Glydel Mercado as Lourdes, the loving and affectionate mother of Rhodora and Angela; Irma Adlawan asDr. Vivian, the doctor who diagnosed Rhodora’s illness; Lollie Mara as Donya Cita, the owner of a big shipyard company and grandmother of Joaquin; Frank Magalona as Santi, the cousin and best friend of Joaquin; Vaness del Moral as Pia, the cousin of Angela and Rhodora, she is also Angela’s best friend; and with the special participation of Ms. Boots Anson-Roa as Panchang, the grandmother of Rhodora and Angela and the one who has doubts about Rhodora’s return.

The creative team is composed of Creative Director ­­­­RJ Nuevas; Creative Consultant Denoy Navarro – Punio; Headwriter Des Garbes-Severino; Writers Onay SalesKen de Leon, and Jules Katanyag; and Brainstormers Rey Leoncito, Borj Danao and Dode Cruz.
