Rafael Rosell and Paw Diaz have accepted mature roles for Substitute Bride, the latest offering of Precious Hearts Romances’ Quikilig: Mga Maikling Kwento ng Pag-ibig.
For the very first time, the versatile actor and reality contest finalist are the lead stars of PHR. Rafael has already appeared as one of the Bud Brothers and has also been part of Your Song, I Love Betty la Fea, Maligno and Rounin while this is the biggest break for Paw who has also appeared in Natutulog ba ang Diyos, Qpids and Magkano ang Iyong Dangal.
When asked about their daring scenes, Paw shared, "Kinakabahan ako ng bongga. Although medyo madali kasi friends naman kami ni Rafael pero sana huwag naman masyadong daring," sabay tawa ng dalaga. Dagdag niya pa, "Si direk Connie, lagi niya akong kinakausap tungkol sa role. Nanonood kami ng different movies para makakita ng iba’t ibang atake sa mga characters."
Rafael had a different view on his role of being sexy, "Ako sa PHR, accept lang ako ng accept kasi I love working with the team and I like the roles they’re giving me. Napansin ko rin na ung mga characters na binibigay sa akin ay may angst side and I like portraying characters na hindi perfect. For me, work is work. If you’re married, things do happen that are very passionate. I’m just portraying the truth."
In the story, Brent (Rafael), a handsome CEO of a big engineering company, is about to be wed to his model fiancée Candra (Carla Humphries). But because the bride-to-be had suddenly gone missing in action, Brent will look for a substitute bride in the form of his secretary, Wilda (Paw) who already has a crush on him.
Will Wilda accept this unique proposal? Will Brent find the love he has been looking for?
Also starring Carla Humphries and under the direction of Connie Macatuno and Nico Hernandez, don’t miss the afternoon series Precious Hearts Romances Presents Substitute Bride, after Pinoy Big Brother Double Up Uber on ABS-CBN.
