It's all systems go for the newest Sine Novela of GMA-7, Magdusa Ka.
Alas-kuwatro kahapon, April 17, sa 11th floor ng GMA Network Center, nag-story conference na ang pinakabagong Dramarama sa Hapon entry na ipapalit sa magtatapos na Maging Akin Ka Lamang. Based on the 1986 Viva Films movie starring Dina Bonnevie and the late Nida Blanca under the direction of Eddie Garcia, the TV adaptation of Magdusa Ka reads and feels like primetime dahil sa laki ng cast at direction.
Si Katrina Halili ang napiling gumanap sa papel na Christine, ang character ni Ms. D sa pelikula. Masasabing ito ang launching ni Katrina as bida after portraying several contravida roles in the past.
Si Dennis Trillo ang gaganap na Rod, na dating papel ni Christopher de Leon sa pelikula. Kararating pa lang ni Dennis at ang kanyang manager na si Popoy Caritativo kahapon ng umaga from Europe from the GMA Films shoot of I.T.A.L.Y. sa Europe at dumiretso na sa story conference.
Completing the love triangle is StarStruck 3 First Princess Iwa Moto, who will play the expanded role of Pinky Amador in the original movie, si Millette.
Portraying the character Toyang of the late Nida Blanca will be Rita Avila. Hindi na natuloy ang orihinal na plano na si Dina ang gaganap sa role na ina dahil busy pa rin ang aktres sa primetime soap niya sa GMA-7, ang Babangon Ako't Dudurugin Kita.
Si Gardo Versoza—na nakawala na sa contract ng Anna Liza ng ABS-CBN— ang gaganap sa papel na Bernardo, ang ama ni Christine. It was originally portrayed by the late Dindo Fernando.
Portraying Doña Perla, originally played by Armida Siguion-Reyna, is Liza Lorena who was also in the original movie playing the role of Olivia, ang ina ni Milette. Jackie Lou Blanco takes over that role of Liza Lorena.
Kasama rin sa cast sina Gabby Eigenmann as Roland (originally portrayed by Ricky Davao), half-brother ni Rod; Emilio Garcia as the father (a new character) of Roland and Rod; Ana Capri as Rod's other woman Hedy (originally played by Jaclyn Jose); Anton Bernardo as Victor (originally played by the late Gil de Leon), Rod's stepfather; Prince Stefan as Sonny, Rod's half-brother; and Rich Asuncion as Violy (originally played by Jobelle Salvador); Christine's best friend.Si Maryo J. de los Reyes ang magdidirek ng Magdusa Ka. It will start its run on May 12, coincidentally Dennis Trillo's birthday.
