Alden Richards, Maine Men­doza top bill 'Des­tined To Be Yours'

Sun.Star Pampanga - - SHOW! -

TUn­der the di­rec­tion of Irene Vil­lamor, the up­com­ing prime­time se­ries tells the story of Ben­jie Ros­ales (Richards) and Si­nag Obispo (Men­doza) set in a pic­turesque town "where any­thing seems possi bl e."

Richards plays an ar­chi­tec­ture grad­u­ate who is de­ter­mined to make a name for him­self by head­ing a big con­struc­tion project in the moun­tains of Pe­langi.

Fate would even­tu­ally work its magic when he crosses paths and falls in love with the prov­ince ra­dio jock, played by Men­doza.

Richards said he’s happy to be back in do­ing tele­seryes af­ter a two-year break.

He said it's very dif­fer­ent from what they do in the Ka­lye­serye seg­ment of "Eat Bul aga."

"Medyo malak­ing ad­just­ment nito kasi gal­ing ako sa live tele­serye. Pero so­brang saya ko kasi na miss ko gu­mawa ng tele­serye kasi doon ta­laga ako nag-start. Paki­ram­dam ko na so­brang dami kong pwe­deng ibi­gay sa soap na ito," he said.

Men­doza, for her part, said she's ex­cited to fi­nally ap­pear in her first full tele­serye.

The break­through star said she doesn't feel any pres­sure even with the high ex­pec­ta­tions of their fans.

"Ex­cite­ment ang nararam­daman ko, lalo na't first time namin makita ang trailer and 'yong mu­sic video. So, parang nae-ex­cite kami ta­laga ni Alden na makita kung ano ba yung ki­nal­abasan ng gi­nawa nami n."

Men­doza said the show is chal­leng­ing for her be­cause they had to tape scenes in the moun­tains and they work long hours. But she's happy to learn some­thing new in the in­dus­try, she added.

She's also ready for the re­ac­tion of the fans and made sure to take act­ing work­shops to be at par with her co-stars.

"Yun po sig­uro 'yong big­gest ad­just­ment po na kailan­gan kong gawin kasi ta­la­gang walang tu­log, walang pahinga. Pero la­ban nang la­ban kahit walang kal­a­ban sabi nga ni Nathan," she sai d.

As for their direc­tor, Richards said he's happy to fi­nally work with Vil­lamor, who also di­rected "Camp Sawi".

"Ma­ganda po kay Direk Irene, binibi­gyan niya kami ng chance to go be­yond the script. Min­san af­ter the scene, tin­u­tu­loy po namin 'yon, hindi po nagka-cut si Direk para maipakita kung ano pa ang pwe­deng gawin."

Also part of the new se­ries are Ron­nie Henares, Ina Feleo, Sheena Halili, Do­minic Roco, RJ Padilla, Juan­cho Triv­ino, Koreen Me­d­ina, Tommy Abuel, Gardo Ver­soza, Lot­lot de Leon, Jan­ice de Be­len and Boots An­son Roa.
