JM De Guzman, Lauren Young & Enrique Gil Lead New Cast of ‘Mula sa Puso’

ABS-CBN has announced that JM De Guzman, Lauren Young, and Enrique Gil as the stars who will reprise the unforgettable roles of Gabriel, Via, and Michael in the much-awaited remake of the 90's teleserye hit “Mula sa Puso.”

The three will portray the roles first played by the late Rico Yan, Claudine Barretto, and Diether Ocampo in the original version of the soap aired in 1997.

”Happy, nervous, excited and blessed. I will play the role of Rico Yan, which everyone knows is a very heavy role to portray,” said theater/indie film actor JM who will take the lead on TV for the first time.

”At first, I was just happy to know I have work again but I didn’t know then what shoes I have to fill. After I found out the impact made by the show, that’s the time I felt nervous,” shared Enrique who will also take his first ever lead role.

Lauren also felt a rollercoaster of emotions especially since this is her launching as a leading lady. When asked during the pictorial and promo shoot of “Mula sa Puso” if she got impatient waiting for her big break in showbiz, Lauren lightheartedly answered no.

“I didn’t get impatient. If they give me something, then good. If they don’t give me something, then they might not want me lang. But at least they are giving me something now. Whatever comes into my life, I’ll accept it,” explained Lauren.

This early on, intrigues are already starting to pop out on the three main leads. One of which is their comparison with the original cast members Rico, Claudine, and Diether.

“We cant avoid that. People will always compare us to the original one, which adds up the pressure. But then again, if there is no pressure, it’s not worth it. You always need that pressure to give you that needed push,” said Lauren.

In the original series, lead stars Rico and Claudine eventually developed a romantic relationship while doing the soap. When asked about the possibility of it happening again, JM said, “Why not? Lauren is a nice, pretty, and talented woman. I don’t see any reason for me not to like her.”

JM was first seen in the Precious Hearts Romances series “Midnight Phantom” which was immediately followed by his supporting roles in PHR’s “Alyna” and “Kristine.”

Enrique, on the other hand, played supporting roles in “Pieta,” and “George and Cecil,” and was seen regularly in “Shoutout” and “ASAP XV” as one of the members of the Gigger Boys.

Meanwhile, Lauren, being a homegrown talent of Star Magic, has appeared in numerous Kapamilya shows such as “Lobo,” “Your Song presents Underage,” “Dahil May Isang Ikaw,” and just recently, “Juanita Banana.” She was also seen in various episodes of drama anthology “MMK” and even on the big screen via movie like Star Cinema’s “Sayo Lamang.”

Also included in the cast are Dawn Zulueta as Magda, Eula Valdez as Selina, Ariel Rivera as Don Fernando, DJ Durano as Ysmael, Tyrone Perez as Gilbert, Paul Salas as Warren and Sue Anna Ramirez as Nicole.

Watch out for the highly anticipated return of “Mula sa Puso,” still directed by Wenn Deramas, coming very soon on ABS-CBN.

    esperanza naman tsaka pangako sayo… the best…

  3. Lahat ng mga drama sa ABS-CBN Kapamilya Gold, puro remake. Mula sa Puso is from ABS-CBN din; Maria la del Barrio is from Televisa, Mexico starring Thalia; and Nasaan ka, Elisa? if I’m not mistaken is from a TV Network in Chile. Mahusay mag-remake ang Kapamilya, hindi boring at mas pulido pa nga kaysa sa original. Hindi pa nakakabagot. Pinag-iisipan nang husto ang mga eksena. Hindi na mahalaga kung sino ang gaganap, mas mahalaga kung paano sila gaganap. In short, it can be remakes, but still the best! Advance congratulations to ABS-CBN.

  19. Goldenseryes-ABS // March 3, 2011 at 12:35 pm //

    ABS-CBN will remake one of its numerous teleseryes that touched the hearts of every filipinos..even kapuso.

    Mula Sa Puso is set to conquer the whole Philippines by storm..

    with this, abs-cbn labels this shows as The Goldenseryes- classic teleseryes:

    1. Mara Clara-Ina ng Pinoy Soap Opera
    2. Mula Sa Puso-Highest Rating Teleserye in the History of Philippines, reaching 70%+ ratings.

    and watch out for the other Goldenseryes of ABS-CBN
    3. Esperanza-Soap Opera that marked Judy Ann Santos’ acting.
    4. Saan Ka Man Naroroon-Historical teleserye at that time, Claudine barreto to portray 3 characters.
    5. Pangako Sa Iyo-The “FIRST” soap opera to use the term “TELESERYE”-bringing “cinema in tv”
    6. Sana’y wala ng wakas- the first teleserye with two endings, and it will be decided by the viewers.
    7. Bituin-Nora Aunor’s best teleserye. First teleserye to give “music” as the theme.
    8. Marina-The First EVER Fantaserye in the history of Philippine Television.
    9. Krystala-The first ever Superserye in the History of Philippine TV.
    10. Lobo-The teleserye that made its mark on Philippine TV and internationally. First teleserye that released “the actress” on Angel Locsin and gave her the nomination to Emmy Awards.

    And many more…AND MANY MORE!

    galing talaga magbuildup ng abs.kaya naman ang daming pwedeng magbida sa kanilang roster of stars.not like that other network.same people.worthless projects.same starlets and so-called ‘stars’ na d naman marunong umarte.nice decision of switching to abs ariel r.!

  23. sana magclick to kasi for me ayoko ng casting hehe. expected ko kasi ka age bracket nila kathryn at julia, either eliza pineda or miles ocampo… so sad 🙁 sana magkaproject ulit si eliza…

  24. ian of butuan // March 3, 2011 at 9:32 am //

    Why lauren young?wala na bang iba?Lauren is a gud actress but in my opinion, i don’t think she fits the lead role as via. Enrique isn’t that gud as well. Sam Concepcion is a better actor than him. Sam C has not yet been given a big role in a primetime series. Ariel Rivera?What?Oh come on!Gabby Concepcion must play the role of Don Fernando. Gabby’s last project was Dahil May Isang Ikaw!GIVE HIM PROJECTS NAMAN!

  25. kahit remake ang ginagawa ng ABS ngayon, puro class naman; ang sa GMA, dala lng ng pagkasikat ng nauna; kitam, marimar sa rpn 8, di sa kanila

  26. sorry i meant bobo! and btw do gma go outside the country? only usa have gma i think! hir in france it’s only abs! so mataas tlga ratings if u put it worldwide!

  27. don’t say na bobp ang writers ng abs at they don’t do just remakes! what do you think of imortal? not a remake but it clicks! duh and we aren’t dumb! go madlang peepz!! ingit lng ang gma!

  28. Go Kapamilya // March 3, 2011 at 4:17 am //
