Katrina Halili moves to lead-role status via "Magdusa Ka"

Young sexy actress Katrina Halili was GMA-7's choice to play the lead role in the TV remake of Magdusa Ka. She will reprise the role originally portrayed by Dina Bonnevie.



Hindi lang sina Marian Rivera at Dingdong Dantes ang nagtamasa ng tagumpay dahil sa Marimar na nagtapos last Friday, March 14. Tulad nina Marian at Dingdong na nagkaroon ng sunud-sunod na endorsements, sumabay din sa kanila si Katrina Halili who played Angelika, the lead villain to Marimar and Sergio.

At ngayon, ang Philippines' Sexiest Woman for FHM two years in a row ay susugulan na rin ng GMA-7 with a lead role for her next Kapuso soap.

Si Katrina ang napipisil na gumanap sa original character created by Dina Bonnevie sa Magdusa Ka, the 1986 movie of Viva Films directed by Eddie Garcia. Next in line itong proyekto sa mga Sine Novela na gagawin for the Dramarama Sa Hapon block.

If ever, this will be Katrina's first TV lead role although nakapagbida na siya sa pelikula, particularly sa Gigil, kung saan siya na-introduce, and Super Noypi.

Makaka-partner ni Katrina sa Magdusa Ka si Dennis Trillo. Si Maryo J. de los Reyes ang kinakausap na magdirek nitong afternoon soap.

Wala pang napipili na gumanap sa role na ina ni Dina, first portrayed by the late movie queen Nida Blanca, although Ms. D has verbally expressed her interest. Nida won several Best Supporting Actress awards for her role in Magdusa Ka.

Balita ring palalakihin ang role ng other woman noon, played by Pinky Amador, na balita namang inalok kay Cristine Reyes. But with Cristine's desire to move to ABS-CBN, mukhang hindi na sa kanya mapupunta ang role.

Dennis will do the original Christopher de Leon role in the Eddie Garcia-directed film.

Ang Magdusa Ka ang ika-walong Sine Novela ng GMA-7 at siyang papalit sa Maging Akin Ka Lamang, na currently ay nasa week nine na.
