THE ultimate fight for love and family begins as And I Love You So, starring Julia Barretto and Miles Ocampo, premieres on December 7 at ABS-CBN.
The latest offering from the network and Dreamscape Entertainment Television revolves around the lives of Trixie (Julia) and Joanna (Miles), who will find themselves pitted against each other in everything they want. They become bitter rivals in school and even in love when they fall for the same guy, Internet sensation Justin (Iñigo Pascual).
At the show’s press conference this week, Julia talked about her role and said, “I love my role kasi gusto ko ‘yong may pinangagalingan siya. Ang pagiging kontra bida ko dito hindi lang dahil gusto niyang maging masama, mayro’n siyang pinanggagalingan.”
“Si Trixie at si Julia, they’re both misunderstood. Hindi nila maintindihan bakit siya ganon, hindi nila maintindihan bakit ganon si Trixie,” she added.
The characters’ rivalry intensifies and becomes more complicated when they are forced to live under one roof as stepsisters.
Joanna’s mother Michelle (Dimples Romana) and Trixie’s father Alfonso (Tonton Gutierrez)—unexpectedly meet again. After years of being separated from each other, Alfonso takes his chance to ask Michelle—her true love—to marry him amidst the disapproval of Trixie.
But as they start to live their lives anew as one family, Katrina (Angel Aquino), Trixie’s mother and Alfonso’s first wife, returns after having abandoned both of them years ago without explanation.
Now that she’s back, Katrina is determined to win back everything Michelle took away from her: her husband, her daughter, and her wealth.
For her part, Miles is thankful that she has finally been given her first major role in a TV series. She said, “Sobrang thankful ako sa Dreamscape, kay sir Deo Endrinal, sa trust na binigay nila sa malaking proyektong ito.”
Will Trixie and Joanna learn to accept their new family and treat each as sisters, or will their rivalry destroy their only chance at having a complete and loving family?
And I Love You So premieres on ABS-CBN on December 7.
