She got her big break as one of the Teen Royalties in GMA-7’s Sunday afternoon show, Reel Love presents Tween Hearts. And now, she marks her first lead role via the afternoon soap of the Network for the first quarter of 2011, the original drama series Alakdana.
Louise has certainly evolved as an artist and will become one of GMA-7’s hot properties this year after bagging the coveted-title role of Adana, a girl born with an extremely rare feature on her body: a scorpion tail. Despite her dark secret, Adana seeks to have a normal life but whenever danger threatens, her tail is ready to strike and stun its enemies.
While juggling between work and school, the fresh-faced 17-year-old Louise has continuously wooed audiences after her stints in various GMA-7 shows including Ang Iibigin Ay Ikaw as the young Stella; Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin as Charina; Pilyang Kerubin as Isabel; and currently, the overachiever Luisa in Tween Hearts and in Party Pilipinas‘ Sayaw Kabataan Crew. Aside from these programs, she has also appeared in numerous TV commercials and was even nominated as Best New Movie Actress in PMPC’s Star Awards for Movies two years ago. At present, Louise is a full-time second year resident academic scholar in Lyceum of the Philippines University.
As Louise takes her first real stab at drama with Alakdana, she will star alongside three talented leading men who will become her love interests in the afternoon show: StarStruck 4 Heartthrob Paulo Avelino as Billy, rapper turned actor Ritchie Paul Gutierrez as Gab and newcomer Alden Richards as Joma.
Completing the A-list roster of cast are Jean Garcia, Matthew Mendoza, Jobelle Salvador, Joana Marie Tan, Perla Bautista, Racquel Montesa, Buboy Villar and Ian de Leon. The afternoon series will be directed by Mac Alejandre.
Watch Louise as she cements her acting stripes this January via Alakdana soon on the Haponalo block of GMA-7.
