This marks Ms. Susan Roces’ first-ever project on TV5 where she topbills—together with Alice Dixson and Alex Gonzaga—the very first drama series of the network.
With over 50 years of unparalleled stardom on the local scene, Ms. Susan Roces is highly placed alongside the country’s showbiz stalwarts, including her late husband, the King of Philippine Movies Fernando Poe, Jr., and the King of Comedy Dolphy.
In Babaeng Hampaslupa, Ms. Susan Roces plays a major role as Helena See, a strong-willed Chinese tycoon who conceals a soft spot for those who strive to get more from life. Through their exceptional characters, Ms. Susan Roces, Alice Dixson and Alex Gonzaga represent the continued quest for hope, love and ambition.
Ms. Susan Roces landed her first starring role in the movie “Boksingera Daw” (1956) with Luis Gonzales. Following its success, the Queen has since teamed up with the biggest names during the golden years of showbiz such as Juancho Gutierrez, Jose Mari Gonzales, Romeo Vasquez, and Eddie Gutierrez. She staged a movie comeback in the second instalment of Chinese-themed flick “Mano Po” (2003) from Regal Entertainment.
Helmed by Eric Quizon and Joyce Bernal, Babaeng Hampaslupa leads primetime viewing starting February. The series also assembles an impressive cast with some of the country’s finest actors and actresses like Jay Manalo, Bing Loyzaga, Freddie Webb and Celso Ad Castillo; and younger stars such as Karel Marquez, Alwyn Uytinco, Vandolph, Jenny Quizon, and Martin Escudero.
