Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap will team up for the first time in ABS-CBN’s upcoming Prime-Tanghali drama series titled Be Careful With My Heart. Richard is best known as Papa Chen in the now defunct teleserye My Binondo Girl.
Both Jodi and Richard are both excited with show as it marks a milestone in their respective showbiz careers.
“Be Careful is so special to me as it is my first-ever lead role in a teleserye. This is also the first time that I get to work with Richard," said Jodi, who will portray the role of Maya, a provincial lass who dreams to become a flight stewardess for her to help her family out of poverty.
Jodi added: “They will surely be inspired with Maya’s character. She is so optimistic with life. For her, everything can be done and nothing is impossible!"
Be Careful With My Heart is equally memorable for Richard as it is his first drama, where he is the leading man.
Richard will give life to the character of Mr. Lim. "In the story, I’m a widower who works hard for his three children. But because of being busy with his business, he will need help," explained Richard. "It's more of an unexpected love story. Viewers can expect a lot of kilig moments and I'm sure they can relate with it."
Aside from Jodi and Richard, also part of Be Careful With My Heart are Jerome Perez, Janella Salvador, and Mutya Orquia. It is under the direction of Jeffrey Jeturian and Mervyn Brondial.
Be Careful With My Heart will start airing this Monday (July 9) after It’s Showtime in ABS-CBN’s Prime-Tanghali.
