Marian Rivera is all set to deliver a powerful and compelling portrayal of the complex character of Carmela, a very beautiful woman who had gone through a lot in life. With her beauty, she is judged not only by other people but also by people close to her. When Carmela falls in love with a man who despises her mother, she is forced to make heart-wrenching decision.
The Primetime Queen shares the screen for the very first time with rising Kapuso actor Alden Richards, dubbed as the next Dingdong Dantes of GMA-7. Alden plays the role of Yago, the handsome and smart grandson of Fernando (Roi Vinzon) and Fides (Ms. Laurice Guillen) whose wish is to find someone who will love and accept him for who he is despite his flaws and insecurities in life. His perspective in life will completely change when he meets Carmela who will show him a different view about life and love.
Director Dominic Zapata says viewers will see something fresh and interesting in the new tandem of Marian and Alden since they will be playing characters that are so different to the various roles they’ve done in the past.
“I like it that they are being paired together for the first time because as artists they are forced to bring something new to the table. And being the consummate professionals that they are, I am sure they welcome both the opportunity to showcase their acting dexterity in the challenge to help create new characters na mamahalin ng viewers.”
Watching the AVP and teasers for Carmela, you will notice that the camera loves Marian and Alden together. They ignite a beautiful chemistry so mesmerizing to the eyes you will find yourself hooked in following the engaging storyline of the soap opera every night.
“Carmela: Ang Pinakamagandang Babae sa Mundong Ibabaw” premieres Monday, January 27, on GMA Telebabad.
