ABS-CBN’s ‘Betty La Fea’ Cast Now Complete

After months of conceptualizing the perfect cast for the Tagalog version of the popular Colombian telenovela Betty La Fea, ABS-CBN has finally rounded out its cast for the sure-fire hit comedy.

The Philippine cast, which will adapt characters from both the Columbian and US versions of the series, will include a lot of local veteran actors as well as some exciting new faces. Expect a lot of surprises as Betty La Fea promises to be as addicting as its foreign counterparts.
Betty (played by Bea Alonzo) is a smart yet unattractive girl, fresh out of college, who wants to prove her worth in the working world. After a lot of unsuccessful job applications, she lands a job at the Eco Moda fashion office, where she encounters a lot of interesting and difficult characters who aren’t used to seeing anything unfashionable walking in their corridors.

Since most of the scenes will be shot in an office setting, ABS-CBN decided to construct a full-scale office set just for the series. The Eco Moda office set is already under construction at one of the floors of the Eugenio Lopez Building in the ABS-CBN compound. This is just one of the exciting developments expected to unfold as the series gets underway. Story-wise, expect to see a lot of Filipino touches although a lot of the original elements are being retained.

Although there is much speculation as to who will finally play Armando, Betty’s love interest, the producers still refuse to reveal who will be Bea’s new leading man. Will Bea finally be sharing kilig scenes with hot hunk Jon Avila or will she test her on-screen chemistry with Luis Manzano? Or will diehard fans get their wish granted to see their favorite love team reunited once again?
