What are the sacrifices a wife and a mother can take for the sake of her family? For Sanya Lopez’s new role Mariel in the new afternoon series “Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig,” it’s everything.
Beginning today, viewers will get to witness the gripping story about sacrifices a wife would be willing to endure for the sake of her husband.
Joining Lopez in the show are Benjamin Alves as Eldon, Winwyn Marquez as Portia and Pancho Magno as Gary.
“Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig” follows Eldon (Alves), who works as an OFW in Saudi Arabia but commits a grave crime that eventually lands him in jail. His wife Mariel (Lopez), who is left in the Philippines, is desperate to earn the “blood money” that will bail out her husband.
Meanwhile, Portia (Marquez), the wife of Eldon’s employer, is bent on putting him behind bars. Then there’s Gary (Magno), Mariel’s rich former lover, who offers an indecent proposal that shakes her fidelity to Eldon.
Driven by the fears and sacrifices of every wife who has an OFW for a husband, “Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig” tells the thought-provoking tale of the temptations and difficulties that a married couple confront when separated by distance.
“Sa mga kababaihan na may asawa sa ibang bansa, magbigat para sa kanila ang malayo sa mahal nila,” shared Lopez at the show’s formal launch.
Lopez admitted playing Mariel is a challenge what with almost all scenes laden with heavy confrontation.
“Nakakakaba bawat eksena pero maganda sa amin, sobrang magkakaibigan kaming lahat so wala nang ilangan,” Lopez assured.
Lopez and the rest of her co-stars promise that the audience will be glued to shocking revelations that will turn the once perfect lives of the characters of this soap into a nightmare.
Joining the powerhouse cast are Sandy Andolong as Nanette, Mariel’s naïve mother; Dominic Roco as Roger, Eldon’s trusted friend and housemate in Saudi; Devon Seron as Chin-Chin, Mariel’s comical best friend; Kelley Day as Alison, Gary’s sophisticated girlfriend; Tep Tep Pineda as Justine, Mariel and Eldon’s lovable daughter; and Tetchie Agbayani as Clara, Eldon’s strict mother.
Behind this engrossing drama is the creative team composed of creative director Aloy Adlawan; creative head RJ Nuevas; creative consultant Agnes Uligan; headwriter Christine Novicio; writers Wiro Michael Ladera and Marlon Miguel; and brainstormers Nehem Dallego and Angeli Delgado.
Under the helm of esteemed director Ricky Davao and associate director Lore Reyes, “Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig” premieres today after “Bihag” on GMA Afternoon Prime.
