Gelli de Belen admits feeling nervous about her catfight scenes in the upcoming GMA-7 afternoon series, Ika-5 Utos.



Cameras have already started rolling for GMA-7's upcoming series Ika-5 Utos.

The show's lead actresses—Jean Garcia, Valerie Concepcion, and returning Kapuso Gelli de Belen—already figured in an intense confrontation scene during their first taping day.

The May 29 report of 24 Oras showed an intense fight scene between the characters of Valerie and Gelli as they pulled each other's hair.


Jean's character tried to stop them from fighting in front of their kids.



The first scene, which took place in a children's party inside a big house, also featured actors Tonton Gutierrez, Neil Ryan Sese, Tanya Gomez, Rez Cortez, and Antonio Aquitania.



In order to prioritize this teleserye, Jean had to leave the prime-time series Kambal Karibal. For this reason, her character was killed off in the GMA-7 show.

Jean, who is making her comeback in the Afternoon Prime block, said, "Napakaganda ng script, ito ang isa sa nabasa ko na teleserye na pilot week na sobrang nagustuhan ko."

After being away from GMA-7 for seven years, Gelli admitted that she feels tense about her comeback teleserye.

She explained, "Nakakanerbiyos din, baka mamaya magkasakitan kami talaga o hindi namin ma-fulfill ang dapat ma-fulfill in that sequence but nevertheless, exciting pa rin. Siyempre, something new."

In Ika-5 Utos, Valerie is tapped to play the kontrabida.

Describing her role, she said, "Actually, I've done a lot of kontrabida roles already but this one I think is the baddest of them all. Ganung level."

Aside from the aforementioned actors and actress, Ika-5 Utos will also feature Inah De Belen, Jake Vargas, Klea Pineda, and Migo Adecer.

Jeric Gonzales, who is also part of Kambal Karibal, had to leave the show to join this TV series.

His character was already killed off last Friday, May 25.
