GMA-7's "La Lola" is turning out to be an all-star cast

(From left) Paolo Contis, Angelika dela Cruz, and Marvin Agustin are the new addition in the cast of GMA-7's upcoming primetime series La Lola.



Naging maingay angbalita na for Rhian Ramos's birthday gift from GMA-7 ay bibigyan siya ngkanyang first soap kung saan siya ang bida, at ito nga ang Argentine soap LaLola.

Ang La Lola ay kuwentoni Ramiro "Lalo" Padilla, ang chick-boy editor ng isang magazine na nakulam ngisang babaeng gumaganti sa kanya at naging isang babae rin kung kaya't nagingsi Dolores "Lola" Padilla siya. The Philippines is the fourth country to buythe rights for a local version of La Lola after Spain, U.S. (through the FoxChannel), and Belgium.

Tanging si Rhian langang ipinakita sa teaser AVP nito na lumabas kasabayan ng Codename: Asero niRichard Gutierrez, Gagambino ni Dennis Trillo, at Survivor Philippines ni PaoloBediones. As months passed since the first news outbreak, lumalaki ang cast,nagkakagulo, napapalitan, at nadagdagan that in the end, hindi na ito mukhang soapni Rhian.

Ang unang nabanggit naaddition ay si JC de Vera, na siyang napabalitang partner ni Rhian. Dahil walapang nakakaalam at that point kung ano ang tunay na story of La Lola, it waspresumed na siya ang magiging Lalo and that it would be a love story of Laloand Lola, until a top matinee idol of GMA-7 entered the picture.

Ang pangatlong pangalang na-involve sa La Lola ay si Lovi Poe. Originally to star in the TV5Lipgloss as Meg—na naibigay sa new star Saab Magalona—hindi nagkaayos angschedule so she has to beg off. A new show was offered to Lovi that would bethe first TV5 soap. But this time, hindi na siya napayagan ng GMA-7 at inilagayna lang siya sa La Lola together with former screen partner Marky Cielo.

With four young starsin the cast, nagulat kami na nadagdag na rin pala sina Marvin Agustin at Angelika dela Cruz in the main cast. So for sure, just like in their previous soapBabangon Ako't Dudurugin Kita, the two senior stars will get top billing overRhian, JC, Lovi, and Marky.

As if the cast were notbig enough, here comes a new twist—si Paolo Contis na ang gaganap ng title rolena si Lalo in a special participation. Paolo was recently signed by GMA-7 asone of its new exclusive artists just after he accepted the TV5 show MidnightDJ. Sa ngayon, dalawa rin ang shows ni Paolo to get busy enough, Codename:Asero and World Records na part ng "Bilib Ka Ba Nights" under GMA's KiliTVbanner.
