Grazilda puts an interesting twist incorporated in the well-loved Cinderella fairy tale, which features the crossover between fantasy and reality of the characters of the wicked stepsisters, the stepmother, and the prince. The story focuses on the out-of-the-ordinary heroine, one of the ugly stepsisters herself, Grazilda (portrayed by Glaiza de Castro). The Kapuso actress shows her versatility by taking on the role of the antagonist-turned-protagonist of the new drama series.
More twists will unfold as Grazilda crosses the boundaries of the real world where she meets her long-lost father Fernando (Joel Torre) and stepmother Veronne (Cherie Gil) and stepsisters Cindy (Yasmien Kurdi) and Tonette (Stef Prescott). Her life will crumble after discovering that her mother Matilda (Rio Locsin) and sister Anatalia (Dyanin Cruz) are being maltreated in Fantasia.
How will Grazilda cope with her struggles in the real world now that she is stuck to live with own wicked stepmother and stepsisters? Will Eric (Geoff) become Grazilda's dashing prince charming?
Grazilda airs weeknights after Survivor Philippines Celebrity Showdown on GMA Telebabad.
