‘Annaliza’ Starring Andrea Brillantes Premieres Tonight
May 27, 2013 by ABS-CBN
The drama series that swept the nation in the 80s returns to primetime television tonight on ABS-CBN before TV Patrol. The ABS-CBN remake features rising teleserye princess Andrea Brillantes with an ensemble of today’s most respected young actors.
Andrea, who has proven her acting prowess by playing remarkable roles as Princess in E-Boy, young Jessy Mendiola in Sabel and Paraiso, young Kim Chiu in Ina Kapatid Anak, and young Andi Eigenmann in Kahit Puso’y Masugatan, now embarks on the first title role of her career – “Annaliza.”
The soap opera also marks “Bromance” star Zanjoe Marudo’s first ever portrayal as a father in the small screen and serves as the comeback soap for 90s teen stars Patrick Garcia and Carlo Aquino, whose acting skills were again noticed by the public after their cameo appearances in “Apoy sa Dagat” and “Dugong Buhay”, respectively.
Follow the story of Annaliza, a young girl with a very kind heart who will be raised by a foster father Guido (Zanjoe).
When she is still a baby, Annaliza will be stolen from her biological and wealthy parents—the restopreneurs Lazaro (Patrick) and Isabel (Denise Laurel). It is Stella (Kaye Abad), Lazaro’s avenging ex-lover, who has the baby stolen with the help of her suitor Makoy (Carlo).
Afraid of being caught red-handed, Makoy leaves the child to his best friend Guido, a fishport worker. Despite his average and simple life, Guido wholeheartedly accepts Annaliza and raises her as his own daughter.
Annaliza begins to endure challenges and hardships in her young life when Guido eventually marries Stella and leaves for Saudi in hopes of giving them a better life. But fate rewards Annaliza’s innate goodness by bringing her closer to Isabel and Lazaro, not knowing they are her true parents.
How will Annaliza discover her true identity? How will she suffer in the hands of Stella? In the end, who will she choose? Her true parents who want to make up for the lost time or the man who raised her and treated her as his own?
Also included in the cast are Khalil Ramos, Sue Ramirez, Kiko Estrada, Shy Carlos, Kyline Alcantara, Jillian Aguila, and Reign Tolentino.
Annaliza is under the direction of Theodore Boborol and Cathy Camarillo and under the supervision of award-winning director and new ABS-CBN business unit head Ruel S. Bayani.
Don’t miss the premiere of Annaliza tonight (May 27) before TV Patrol on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.
