PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7:
"Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal reunite and reignite their tandem on Philippine primetime as the Koreana star makes a special appearance on GMA-7’s Machete beginning this week.
"Kris is set to play Jessa, a damsel in distress who rescues a severely injured Dakila/Machete (Aljur Abrenica) after engaging in an epic battle with Karum (Ryan Eigenmann). As Jessa nurses Machete’s wounds, the ancient warrior will protect Jessa from her overbearing father who wanted to marry her off to man she doesn’t love.
"Sparks will certainly fly anew as the former love team shares the small screen almost a year after their last project together, the fanstaserye The Last Prince. Before which, they also starred in Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin and All My Life, where the two made headlines with their crowd-pleasing portrayals and strong onscreen chemistry.
"Kris began taping last Monday in Daranak, Rizal, and is set to appear in the upcoming episodes of the program.
"With Jessa’s arrival, will the audacious warrior remain completely in love with Rosella/Aginaya (Bela Padilla)? Or will he have a change of heart?
"Catch Kris Bernal in Machete right after Dwarfina on GMA Telebabad."
