We loved her in primetime rom-coms such as “Ako Si Kim Samsoon,” “Totoy Bato,” “I Heart You, Pare!” and “Diva.” Now, Asia’s Songbird will make her primetime comeback after five years on GMA Network’s “Poor Señorita” which is set to premiere this Monday, March 28, 2016, after “24 Oras” on GMA Telebabad.
Poor Señorita is a story about Rita Villon, played by no other than Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid. Rita is an heiress and a successful owner of a perfume company. She is an obsessive-compulsive, perfectionist that is feared by all of her employees. She never had a boyfriend and has no interest in men but deep inside she longs for love and connection.
In a twist of events, Rita loses all her wealth. On her way to gaining back all the things she lost, she stumbles upon five street children (Kyla, Charisse, Apol, Rambo, Girlie) that will help her get back on her feet. Along their journey, Rita develops affection for the children who will teach her the true value of happiness.
On her return to acting, Regine shares that she is happy and excited to be back despite feeling a little anxious. “I’m very happy to be working with everyone again but I’m also feeling a little nervous kasi I haven’t done this in a while. But really, I’m very excited siyempre kasi the character is different. I think yun yung isa sa mga exciting na aabangan natin.”
Bringing more colour to the life of Rita are the merry mix of characters played by versatile actors and actresses: Mikael Daez as Paeng, a janitor in a hotel. In a case of mistaken identity, he goes on a blind date with Rita.
Sheena Halili as Maika, Rita’s loyal secretary. Kevin Santos as Kilmer, a hired assassin. Valeen Montenegro as Piper Villon, Rita’s cousin. Jaya as Edna, Paeng’s ‘kagawad’ aunt.Ervic Vijandre as Jordan, Paeng’s macho dancer bestfriend. Jillian Ward as Charisse, the “heart” of their group who likes giving words of wisdom and quotable quotes. Miggs Cuaderno as Apol,the “comedienne” and optimistic one in their group. Zymic Jaranilla as Rambo, the “siga” of the group. Caprice Cayetano as Girlie, the “baby” of the group. Ralph Noriega as Isko, the neighbour of Kyla. And Snooky Serna as Deborah Villon, Rita’s show-off and schemer aunt.
The series also introduces Starstruck Season 6’s 1st princess and prince, Ayra Mariano as Kyla, the “raketera” of the group, and Elyson De Dios as Edison Villon, the kind and handsome son of Deborah.
