Luis Alandy Gets to Play His Dream Role in ‘Innamorata’

It took Luis Alandy 13 years in show business to land a lead role in a television series via GMA 7's primetime soap "Beauty Queen". That was in October of 2010 when he shared the lead casting with Iza Calzado, Katrina Halili, Marvin Agustin, Maggie Wilson and TJ Trinidad. It came after 11 support roles in the same number of drama series. For Alandy, it was worth the wait.


Talking to select bloggers in a restaurant in Timog Avenue earlier today with his co-stars Max Collins and Gwen Zamora, Luis was beaming in excitement while being interviewed for his 7th lead role in GMA 7’s newest afternoon soap “Innamorata”. After “My Lover, My Wife” and “Iglot” in 2011, “Broken Vow” and “Yesterday’s Bride” in 2012, and “Binoy Henyo” in 2013, he is just excited to start 2014 with another drama series. For Luis, he’d prefer baby steps in his showbiz career than reach the limelight fast only to see it being taken away too soon. Now, he is happy to see his career finally taking off.

Not only is he celebrating his 7th consecutive lead appearance as entrusted to him by the Kapuso network, Luis is also excited about his most challenging role yet. In “Innamorata”, he will be playing the blind, deaf and mute Edwin Manansala Delos Rosales. A dream role for the 34 year-old hunk, Alandy shared that he took exercises to master his role as a blind man.

“Innamorata” debuted last Monday, February 17, with the premiere reportedly taking the number 1 spot in its timeslot. There are no official ratings yet but the lead actors of the soap are enjoying the warm welcome. “We are just excited that we are meeting expectations from the network and our own. Sana tuloy-tuloy lang,” Max Collins said. This is Max’s next huge project after appearing side by side with Dingdong Dantes and Lorna Tolentino in “Pahiram Ng Sandali.” Like Max, Gwen is also excited to making more soaps after doing “Binoy Henyo.”
