ABS-CBN confirms that Erich Gonzales will no longer be a cast member of the upcoming teleserye Love Thy Woman.
As early as July 25, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) reported that Erich had backed out of the Kapamilya teleserye.
Erich was supposed to top-bill Love Thy Woman along with Kim Chiu and Xian Lim.
Her character was the fiancée of Xian’s character and the half-sister of Kim's character.
In a statement released on August 15, Dreamscape Entertainment confirmed that Erich resigned from the project that depicts the world of Filipino-Chinese families.
The statement goes: "Due to creative differences, Erich Gonzales has resigned from 'Love Thy Woman,' a Dreamscape Production from ABS-CBN."
The statement indicated that Yam Concepcion took over the role of Erich in the TV show.
It goes: "Yam Concepcion will be taking the role of Dana Wong in the series."
A PEP.ph source explained that Erich resigned from Love Thy Woman because her character is being turned into a kontrabida, which was not in the discussion when the role was first pitched to her.
Christopher de Leon, Eula Valdes, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Sunshine Cruz will also be part of this series.
