After much hype for many months now, TVLandia will finally get to meet Carmela—prime time star Marian Rivera’s latest character and drama series—when it premieres tomorrow, January 27 on GMA Network.
Helmed by Dominic Zapata, the same director of the 2013’s phenomenal prime time success My Husband’s Lover, Carmela: Ang Pinakamagandang Babae sa Mundong Ibabaw, is said to be a “heart-wrenching and heavy drama that validates every woman’s aspiration to be understood, through a beautiful story of love that can never be.”
Marian promises a powerful and compelling portrayal of the complex heroine Carmela, who leads a tragic life despite her beauty. Separated from her beloved mother, she eventually falls in love with a man who despises her, and is forced to choose between the two.
The multifaceted actress is very excited over her current project, which she says will be another unforgettable character that will surprise her audience.
“Kakaibang Marian Rivera ang mapapanood ng viewers bilang si Carmela. Very excited ako sa role ko rito dahil masasabi ko na isa ito sa pinakamahirap na dramas na gagawin ko. Siguradong mapapamahal sa viewers si Carmela,” she guaranteed at the grand press launch of the series at GMA Network’s Studio 7.
Marian beamed as she stood at the center of an impressive cast, comprised of leading man Alden Richards, Agot Isidro, Roi Vinzon, Jennica Garcia, Rochelle Pangilinan, Freddie Webb, Eva Darren, Krystal Reyes, Ana Feleo, RJ Padilla, and Laurice Guillen.
Zapata, meanwhile, boosted the new tandem of Marian and Alden, by saying, “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.”
Carmela: Ang Pinakamagandang Bababe sa Mundong Ibabaw airs Monday on GMA Telebabad. Updates are available via www.facebook.com/CarmelaGMAOfficial; twitter account @CarmelaGMA; and www.GMANetwork.com.
