GMA-7 actress Inah de Belen joins the cast of Encantadia.
In the fantasy series, she plays the grown-up Deshna, the daughter of Hagorn (John Arcilla) and Lilasari (Diana Zubiri).
She first appeared in the telefantasya last night, February 10.
However, she now uses the name Luna, and is under the care of the Nymfas.
Winwyn Marquez portrays her guardian Helgad, who pretends to be her mother.
It is interesting to note that the 22-year-old Inah and 24-year-old Winwyn used to be co-hosts in the teen-oriented magazine show Candies. It aired on the defunct channel QTV in 2005.
At that time, Inah was 10 and Winwyn was 12. They were introduced as the new generation teens from showbiz families along with Ynna Asistio.
Inah is the daughter of Janice de Belen and John Estrada, Winwyn’s parents are Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno, and Ynna is the daughter of Nadia Montenegro and Boy Asistio.
However, Winwyn left the show and was replaced by Andi Manzano.
Aside from Inah, Jake Vargas also joins Encantadia as Gilas.
Inah and Jake are known as one of the newest Kapuso love teams after they were paired in the afternoon series Oh My Mama in 2016.
Inah posted a photo of her and Jake in character on her Instagram account.
