Arci Munoz feels privileged to be paired with Jericho Rosales in the ABS-CBN drama series Magpahanggang Wakas, a TV adaptation of the 1980 movie Kastilyong Buhangin starring Nora Aunor and Lito Lapid.

Cameras have already started rolling for Arci Munoz's teleserye where she is paired with Jericho Rosales.

Formerly titled Never Ever Say Goodbye, the new ABS-CBN drama series just recently changed its title to Magpahanggang Wakas.

In this Kapamilya series, Arci is cast as Aryann while Jericho will bring life to Waldo.

In an interview with (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other entertainment reporters at the August 23 premiere night of Camp Sawi, Arci described the taping for their new teleserye as "madugo."

She explained, "Madugo since medyo yung storya niya, heavy drama, madugo yung taping namin.

"We shoot three times a week. Pinapaganda kasi namin kaya mabusisi din pagdidirek ni Direk FM [Reyes]."

According to the 27-year-old actress, she feels the pressure of headlining the series, especially since her co-stars John Estrada and Gelli de Belen are both established actors.

"Mahusay naman ang mga kasama ko, lahat, sila Kuya John, si Ate Gelli, kaya nape-pressure ako na paghusayan pa.

"Nakakahiya na magte-take two dahil sa akin. Nagpapasalamat ako kasi napakatiyaga nila sa akin."

But more than anything, Arci is very proud to have Jericho as her leading man, whom she calls 'Echs' or short for Echo, Jericho's nickname.


In fact, the two already have a close bond on the set of their new soap.

She gushed, "Isa sa pinakamagaling na artista na kilala ko, kaya wala akong masasabi. It’s a privilege.

"Sobrang close ko yun, para kong kapatid si Echs, kalaro ko yun!

"Kapag kunyari, magkahiwalay kami ng taping, may mga eksena na wala siya, malungkot.

"Tapos sasabihin ni Direk, 'O, ba't ka malungkot?' Wala akong kalaro kasi nga kalaro ko si Echs. Para kaming mga bata!"


CAST MEMBERS REVEALED. Meanwhile, the other cast members of this upcoming teleserye was revealed through an Instagram post by RSB Drama Unit, the producer of the soap opera.

Led by unit head Ruel Santos Bayani, RSB also produced the shows Tubig at Langis, Ipaglaban Mo, and Pasion De Amor, Arci's first TV series on ABS-CBN.

Aside from Arci, Jericho, Gelli, and John, this teleserye also stars Liza Lorena, Danita Paner, Lito Pimentel, Maika Rivera, and Marco Gumabao.

Rita Avila also returns as a Kapamilya, after her controversial exit in the 2012 drama series Walang Hanggan. Since then, she has been part of GMA-7 and TV5 teleseryes.

The soap also marks the first time that Rita will be working on a teleserye with Direk FM, her real-life spouse.

Indie actor Jomari Angeles, who is part of the 2016 Cannes Film Fest entry Ma' Rosa, also makes his debut in doing a full-length drama series.


Last May, Jericho and Arci went to Caramoan to shoot scenes for this new Kapamilya show.
