Martha Cecilia's Dominic becomes the basis of ABS-CBN's upcoming afternoon series titled Precious Hearts Romances presents Alyna.
This pocketbook-turned-TV show revolves around a woman who falls in love with two brothers. Shaina Magdayao will bring life to Alyna Natividad, a faculty assistant who is faced with the dilemma of choosing between two men portrayed by Sid Lucero and Jason Abalos. Kaye Abad will also be part of this new Kapamilya show.
In the September 14 press conference of the gay-themed independent film Muli, Sid told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) about his role in his latest TV series.
"Love interest ko si Shaina, we fall in love with each other pero meron pala akong past na tinatago. While she's recuperating from the emotional distress, na-meet niya si Jason [who portrays Sid's brother in the TV series] and magkaka-develop sila.
"By the time I come back after fixing all my problems, dun magsisimula ang conflict: how will I win Alyna back?"
Sid describes his leading lady Shaina as "super cute and super cool." This marks the first time that he will work with Jason in a project. "Excited ako kasi napanood ko ang Endo and we shared an Urian award. That's something special. Ever since that day, naging close na kami."
In 2008, Sid and Jason tied for the Best Actor trophy during the awards night of the 31st Gawad Urian. Sid was honored for his performance in Selda while Jason won for the Cinemalaya entry Endo.
In Alyna, Sid and Jason portray brothers named Rex and Dominic del Carmen, respectively. "My character Rex takes over the identity of his brother but not intentionally," explains Sid. "Ang problema lang, I keep on digging my grave deeper and deeper until Alyna [Shaina] finds out the truth."
This will be the second TV series of Shaina this year after starring in the popular primetime series Rubi. Shaina is also part of the family drama Sa'Yo Lamang, the Star Cinema film that is still being screened in select cinemas in Metro Manila.
Directed by FM Reyes, Precious Hearts Romances presents Alyna will air soon on ABS-CBN's Hapontastic.
SYNOPSIS. Alyna (Shaina Magdayao) is a woman who grew up feeling unloved until she meets Rex (Sid Lucero). He was fun, charismatic and immediately swept Alyna off her feet. When she thought she finally found love in the arms of Rex, he suddenly disappears. The faculty assistant is then left alone, heartbroken and carrying his child.
In the search for Rex, Alyna crosses paths with Dominic (Jason Abalos)—a sad, serious and cold man. But as the days progress, the fire in Alyna's heart blazes anew as she got to know the endearing qualities of Dominic. He could be the man Alyna was looking for all along.
But Rex returns, promising to continue the love story he started weaving
with Alyna. Who will Alyna choose: the man she loved first or the man who promises to love her forever?
