PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"Aiko Melendez will soon be part of the hot and compelling story of ABS-CBN's top-rating primetime drama series Apoy Sa Dagat. She will portray the character of Odessa, the mother of the twins Rebecca and Serena (Angelica Panganiban), initially played by Nikki Gil in the series' well-acclaimed back story.
"After 20 years, Odessa will return to the lives of the Del Sol family. Unlike before, she is now a stronger and more powerful woman who is determined to reclaim what were taken from her as the rightful wife of Alberto del Sol (Patrick Garcia) and the mother of daughter Rebecca.
"How far will Odessa go in correcting her mistakes to her daughters? What will she do once she discovers that Rebecca has suffered in the hands of Adrianna (Angel Aquino), the woman who has been pretending to be Alberto's wife? How will she face the truth that her other daughter Rosanna is alive and carrying the name Serena?
"Don't miss Aiko's portrayal as Odessa in ABS-CBN's hottest drama series Apoy Sa Dagat, weeknights, 9pm, after Ina Kapatid Anak on Primetime Bida."
