Reprising the role that has launched Snooky Serna as an actress in the 1981 Regal classic ‘Bata Pa Si Sabel,’ Jessy finally takes a big leap in her career after four years of waiting. “The wait was worth it. Ngayon po ABS-CBN has entrusted me with a role na masasabi kong hindi ko pa talaga nagagawa sa buong buhay ko,” Jessy expressed.
Jessy’s acting skills was noticed in ‘Your Song presents Boystown’ where she shared the screen with the Gigger Boys. After her first Your Song stint, projects came pouring at Jessy’s feet. She became a part of the hit series ‘Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo’ where she played the vital character of Christina, Coco Martin’s love interest. She was also part of Your Song presents GIMIK 2010.
After being paired with various male teenstars, Jessy is now teamed up with two of the freshest faces in the industry: AJ Perez and Joseph Marco.
AJ Perez, member of the Gigger Boys, shared that after hearing that he will be working with Jessy again, he wanted to start taping right away. “Gusto ko na agad magtaping when I learned that I will be working with Jessy. Naalala ko kasi noon sa Your Song presents Boystown, ang saya ng experience naming lahat. Kahit puro lalaki kami nun, nakakasabay si Jessy. Magaling makisama.”
On the other hand, Joseph, commercial model and a newbie in the grounds of the Kapamilya Network, is happy to be part of ABS-CBN’s newest gateway to primetime, “Masayang-masaya po ako na makasama sa isang Kapamilya project lalo po na primetime teleserye pa. First teleserye project ko po ito sa ABS-CBN.’
A formidable list of stars shapes the powerhouse cast of Sabel: Rita Avila, Raymund Bagatsing, Daria Ramirez, Tommy Abuel, Ron Morales and Glydel Mercado.
Under the direction of Don Cuaresma, ‘Sabel’ depicts the story of a young girl, Sabel, cursed with bad luck. As this young girl mature, she begins to fall into the traps of love. Sabel’s elders believe that she is too young to get into a romantic affair, but Sabel feels otherwise. So she goes ahead and follows her heart – even if it means immersing herself into the complexities of love.
