The refreshing casting coup in Gabby Concepcion, Carla Abellana and Rafael Rossel for GMA Network’s new primetime series Because of You will finally be put to the test on Monday, November 30.
Tasked to bring viewers an inspiring light drama centered on love, family and parenting—with the joys and challenges that come with all aspects—the three lead stars were very optimistic they will deliver at the show’s final presser on Wednesday night.
With Carla and Rafael as stalwarts of GMA’s primetime offerings, most eyes were on ‘80s matinee idol and dramatic actor Gabby Concepcion who expressed excitement over his first project with the network.
“My life has changed,” he opened up. “Nararamdaman ko dito sa puso… Sa buhay kasi, hindi mo alam kung paggising mo ano ang puwedeng mangyayari sa iyo so this is a renewal of life. It’s a fresh start.”
Gabby plays Jamie in the series—a newly annulled husband and father—who falls in love with a fresh graduate named Andrea, portrayed by Carla Abellana. As Andrea starts to have feelings for her much older boss, she finds herself in the thick of making very difficult life decisions.
As Rafael, who complete the triangle in this love story put it, “It’s a fork on the road kung pipiliin mo ba ang mahal mo sa buhay, o pipiliin mong mahalin muna ang sarili mo para mas mamahalin mo ang mahal mo sa buhay.”
Also included the cast are Kuh Ledesma, Iya Villania, Valerie Concepcion, Joyce Ching, Bettina Carlos, Enzo Pineda, Vaness del Moral, Michael Flores, Rey “PJ” Abellana as Conrado, and Celia Rodriguez, among others.
Because of You will air nightly after Little Nanay, on GMA Telebabad.
