The main cast members of the TV remake of Sinasamba Kita are heavily promoting the first offering of the TV serialization project of GMA-7.
Wendell Ramos, Sheryl Cruz, Carlo Aquino, and Valerie Concepcion appeared on the pilot episode of Showbiz Central yesterday, April 29, in order to promote their drama series Sinasamba Kita.
PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Carlo to describe his role in this TV remake, which is based on the 1982 film directed by Eddie Garcia.
"I'm in love with Valerie but she's in love with Wendell. Gagawin ko lahat para makuha ko siya," Carlo says his character Oscar.
He continues: "It's a very good feeling [working with the cast members]. And kasi first project ko with GMA at ang mga makakasama ko sina Kuya Wendell. Nandun siyempre yung pressure pero I'm doing my best para makaperform ng maayos."
The four cast members were in a hurry since they still had to go to SM Fairview that night to hold a mall show for their fans.

unforgettable characters of timeless Filipino movies that will further capture
the viewers' interest. For the first salvo of its TV serialization project, The
Kapuso network premieres its movie-turned-television series entitled Sinasamba
This drama series, directed by Joel Lamangan, is a compelling story of two half-sisters whose entwined loves and lives change when true love and destiny intervene.
Sheryl will give life to the character of rich and self-centered Divina who was then played by Vilma Santos in the original film. Valerie plays a challenging role as the poor, half-sister of Divina named Nora, portrayed in the movie by Lorna Tolentino.

Divina takes her half-sister, Nora from her mom Corazon to live with her in the mansion. However, Divina's mom, Sylvia (Jackie Lou) and her aunt Isabellita (Bing) will connive to make Nora's life miserable.
After several years, Nora is now a nursing student. Her childhood friend Oscar (Carlo) secretly adores the young lady. Meanwhile, Divina who runs the family business, is in love and even worships one of her trusted personnel, Jerry (Wendell).
But destiny leads Jerry and Nora to meet when the two get stranded in a remote place and later fall in love. Things get complicated when Jerry visits the mansion and finds out that Nora, the woman he loves, is the half-sister of his boss, Divina.
Will Jerry be able to bring back Nora in his arms now that he has a relationship with Divina? What are the drastic schemes that Divina will use against her sister just to make the man she worships love her? Will Oscar find a space in Nora's heart? And when will Nora start loving herself and stop worshipping Divina whose real identity remains hidden in the dark?
