It's official! Gil Cuerva will be Jennylen Mercado's new leading man on GMA's forthcoming TV series "My Love From the Star", an adaptation of the popular Korean series.
Gil Cuerva is a 21-year-old Filipino-Spanish model, who entered the acting industry fairly recently and was chosen to replace Aldren Richards, the original choice for the lead role. He will be playing the role of Matteo Do, an alien who has been stranded on Earth for 400 years and unexpectedly fell in love with Steff Cheon, a human being played by Jennlyn Mercado.
"It was also surprising because it was something unexpected. Nasa Hong Kong po ako nun when I received the e-mail from my management to audition for this role. Nagkataon, I was really going to come back kasi I was gonna fix some papers for my school saka for my visa. Pupunta rin dapat akong Thailand but sabi ko, 'I might as well audition, malay mo makuha ako.' And lo and behold, nakuha ko." Cuerva said during an interview.
Jennylyn also shared her thoughts regarding the remake, saying:
"Bagong team-up, siyempre fresh 'to dahil bagong-bago si Gil."
"Personal touch, kasi ako sa bawat proyektong ginagawa ko, laging may personal touch. Laging nagbibigay ako ng a little of myself. Yung binibigay ko yung konting attitude ko, yung buhay ko. Para di ba, may personal touch talaga, para maging mas effective. Hindi porke't remake, gagayahin namin talaga yung eksaktong galaw nila or yung arte nila. Siyempre meron ding kaming kanya-kanyang thing. Si Direk [Joyce Bernal] siyempre, yung mga writers natin, at yung mga bawat artista." She added.
"Ipapakita ko kung paano ako magmahal ng isang babae. I want to show my romantic side and I want to portray kung paano magmahal ang isang Pinoy through the character of Matteo. Kung nagustuhan niyo yung original version, kikiligin din kayo dito, lalo na nandito si Jennylyn. And we have Direk Joyce who is synonymous to a sure guarantee na makikilig kayo rito."
