Posted on July 27, 2013 | 2:50 PM

Award-winning actress Gretchen Barretto was a personal choice of Pinoy Soap Opera Queen Judy Ann Santos to play the new character in ABS-CBN’s top-rating primetime drama series “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala.”

Gretchen Barretto is Judy Ann Santos' personal choice to play Atty. Eva Custodio

“It really felt so good that I was personally handpicked by Judy Ann,” said Gretchen, who accepted the role of Attorney Eva Custodio despite the fact that she will soon start taping for her own upcoming teleserye. “It’s really a dream to work with Juday that’s why I did not let the chance pass by. We all know that in her generation, she’s really one of the best, if not the best.”

Gretchen added that through her special participation in “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,” she was able to realize how blessed she is right now. “Sometimes, I forget to be grateful, but I am truly thankful that I have a good career and I get to work with very talented people,” said Gretchen. “It’s flattering to still be very much in the business after so many years and to be a Kapamilya is such a blessing.”

When asked about her insight about the teleserye’s women empowerment advocacy, La Greta said that she totally supports the cause. “I encourage all women to go out, work, and empower themselves because with that, nobody can abuse them. You only get abused because you allow people to do it,” she expressed.

Meanwhile, “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala” recently revealed the fiercer Anessa (Judy Ann) after having been rescued by Dr. Maria Balaguer (Amalia Fuentes). How will the new Anessa change the lives of Eros (Sam Milby), Alexis (KC Concepcion) and the whole Diomedes family? What will Atty. Custodio do to help Anessa in her new ‘mission’ in life?

'Princess and I' Cast Returns to Bhutan for Finale

Posted on September 19, 2012 | 10:51 AM

The cast of hit ABS-CBN royal teleserye Princess and I will return to Bhutan to shoot for the series finale. According to Enrique Gil, the cast were all excited to shoot the final scenes of Princess and I in Bhutan.

"Lahat kami excited makita 'yung ending ng show, 'yung finale, a big finale, so pag punta namin doon, we're going to shoot it," said Enrique who plays Dasho Jao, a royalty in the fictional Kingdom of Yangdon.

Kathryn Bernardo as Princess Ariya of Yangdon in Princess and I

The Princess and I finale will not happen sooner though, even with the revelation of Mikay's (Kathryn Bernardo) real identity as the long-lost crown princess of Yangdon, the climax of the show. On Monday's episode, King Anand had already learned that his daughter was Mikay.

According to lead actress Kathryn Bernardo, there's still a "long journey" ahead for her character since the big revelation is only a climax of the story and there are still challenges ahead in her quest to adjust and learn the ABC's of being a princess.

"Malalaman na rin sa campus na ako 'yung princess. 'Yung mga scenes ngayon namin, ito na 'yung climax, 'yung hinihintay nilang lahat, 'yung revelation, 'yung adjustment ni Mikay sa pagiging princess," Kathryn told ABS-CBN News on the sidelines of the filming of an upcoming episode of Princess and I.

"Mahaba pa 'yung journey ni Mikay," she said, when asked if the soap opera is nearing its end. "Of course hindi lang naman 'yung naging princess siya eh; 'yung buhay niya 'pag princess na siya, and then magsu-shoot kami ulit sa Bhutan," she added.

With Princess and I extended for quite a bit, we can expect more twists and turns happening on the life of our teen princess. Also starring Daniel Padilla, Khalil Ramos, Albert Martinez and Gretchen Barretto, Princess and I airs weeknights on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.

Mikay's Big Reveal as Yangdon Princess Draws Near

Posted on July 31, 2012 | 7:35 PM

ABS-CBN’s primetime princess Kathryn Bernardo has confessed that she was initially intimidated by the regal presence of award-winning actress Gretchen Barretto in their ‘royal teleserye,’ “Princess and I.”

Kathryn admitted that she was so starstrucked when she had her first scenes with Gretchen, now popularly known as ‘Ashi Behati,’ the despicable mother of Dasho Jao (Enrique Gil).

Ashi Behati and Princess Mikay of Yangdon

“I was nervous while doing our sole scene in Bhutan and even until our initial takes here in the Philippines. I was really tensed to work with Ms. Gretchen. Everyone in the set is mesmerized by her beauty,” said Kathryn, who later on realized how fun-loving La Greta is behind the cameras. “She is so cool in the set. She always wants all of us to be happy while working.”

As Kathryn and Gretchen get along well off-screen, the conflict between their characters in the drama series builds up. “Now that the revelation about Mikay’s ‘royal identity’ draws near, I’ll have more scenes with Ashi Behati that the viewers should watch out for,” shared Kathryn.

Can Ashi Behati still prevent everyone from knowing that Mikay is the long lost princess of the Kingdom of Yangdon? What will King Anand (Albert Martinez) do when he finds out that Behati was the mastermind of the accident that killed her queen and endangered her beloved princess?

Ashi Behati's Visit in Manila Stirred Reactions from Fans

Posted on June 22, 2012 | 11:41 PM

Amid the huge following of the hit love quadrangle happening among the teen cast of ABS-CBN’s top-rating primetime series “Princess and I,” TV viewers cannot help but notice the regal presence of the show’s villainess, Ashi Behati, portrayed by award-winning actress Gretchen Barreto.

Gretchen Barreto as Ashi Behati now in Manila, Princess Mikay might be in anger


La Greta recently claimed the spotlight as she stirred up strong emotions among the loyal followers of “Princess and I” since her character arrived in the Philippines to check on her son Dasho Jao, played by young actor Enrique Gil.

Behati’s surprise visit to Manila was such a hit among viewers that it generated various reactions via Twitter –
“‏@DJKathXstrology: Go Ashi Behati! Ilayo mo si Jao kay Mikay;” “‏@fontanillakat: I smell something fishy with the alliance of Ashi Behati and Gino’s Mom;” “@ellalaaaaaaa: I’m excited to see Gretchen dressing-up, abandoning her Yangdon costume! She is surely stunning;” and “‏@MaxineFernandez: Welcome to the Philippines Ashi Behati! I love you so much. Salamat naman at dumating ka na!” 
Being showbiz’ queen of high fashion and reminiscent of her “Magkaribal” days, fans of the “Princess and I” are already anticipating for the trends that Gretchen will come up with as Ashi Behati dons her ‘Manila royalty look’ in the next weeks to come.

What will be Ashi Behati’s role in Jao and Mikay’s (Kathryn Bernardo) love story—will she prevent her son from falling in love for a Filipino commoner or will Mikay’s good influence on Jao earn Behati’s approval? But how will Behati react once she finds out that Mikay, the girl who her son loves so much, is the long lost princess of Yangdon whom she once attempted to get rid off?

Like its story that gets more compelling night after night, the national TV ratings of “Princess And I” continues to leave the competition behind. Based on the combined average of nationwide urban and rural ratings of Kantar Media last June 20, it garnered 39.1% national TV ratings compared to its rival program in GMA, “Luna Blanca” which only got 15.7%, registering a 23.4 difference. The show remains the top 2 most watched TV program in the Philippines, next to “Walang Hanggan.”

Nag-Iisang Bituin by Christian Bautista Lyrics

Sa lamig ng gabi
May pupuno ng puwang sa 'yong tabi
Pagmamahal ang tanging hatid
Patitingkarin ang 'yong kislap sa dilim
Malayo man, maihahatid din ng hangin
Ang mga hangarin ng puno ng pag-ibig

Ang pangarap ko'y para sa 'yo, nag-iisang bituin
Laman ng puso at damdamin ko, nag-iisang bituin
Kahit san ka man dalhin ng tadhana'y dama pa rin
Dahil tayo'y nakatitik, sa iisang bituin.

Tanging hiling ng puso ko'y
Tibayan and loob sa 'yong mga pagsubok
Malayo man, maihahatid din ng hangin
Ang mga hangarin ng puno ng pag-ibig

Ang pangarap ko'y para sa 'yo, nag-iisang bituin
Laman ng puso at damdamin ko, nag-iisang bituin
Kahit san ka man dalhin ng tadhana'y dama pa rin
Dahil tayo'y nakatitik, sa iisang bituin.

Tulad ng mga tala sa langit
Ika'y magniningning

Ang pangarap ko'y para sa 'yo, nag-iisang bituin
Laman ng puso at damdamin ko, nag-iisang bituin
Kahit san ka man dalhin ng tadhana'y dama pa rin
Dahil tayo'y nakatitik, sa iisang bituin.

Kathryn Bernardo Thankful for the Success of Princess and I

Posted on May 14, 2012 | 5:52 PM

Kathryn Bernardo is thankful for the unrelenting warm support of TV viewers for ABS-CBN’s ‘royal drama,’ “Princess and I.”
“I am grateful that we have consistent high TV ratings and now it’s even getting higher. So I really hope that the viewers continue to follow the adventures of Mikay every night because we are all doing our best to make it much better,” shared Kathryn.

Based on the latest data of Kantar Media, the trending and top-rating drama series topbilled by the ‘primetime princess’ Kathryn together with its powerhouse cast Albert Martinez, Gretchen Barretto, Precious Lara Quigaman, Dominic Ochoa, Enrique Gil, Daniel Padilla, and Khalil Ramos gained a national TV rating of 31.7%, or almost 15 points higher than the 16.8% national TV rating garnered by its rival program in GMA, “Biritera.”

Kathryn dedicated the success of their show to its first-of-its-kind story and the commitment of their team. She said, “Aside from the fact that our story is very light with a touch of drama which Pinoys love; one of ‘Princess and I’s big success factors is the great working relationship of the team especially with our directors, Dado Lumibao and Francis Pasion, because they closely monitor our characters, ensuring we execute it right.”

With Kathryn’s show shining in the Primetime Bida block of ABS-CBN, viewers cannot help but compare her with ‘Mara Clara’ co-lead star Julia Montes, who is currently one of the lead stars of another Kapamilya top-rating primetime teleserye, “Walang Hanggan.”

“Julia is really like a sister to me, so there was never a time that competition became an issue to us,” said Kathryn. “I’m super proud of her because I know very well that their show is doing great too in the ratings. Actually, I’m a fan of ‘Walang Hanggan.”

Meanwhile, along with her hardships to get her father (Dominic)out of prison, Mikay’s (Kathryn) heart will be put to test too with the coming of three ‘princes’ in her life. Who will win Mikay’s love–his bestfriend Kiko (Khalil) who just confessed his love for her; Jao (Enrique) who visits the Philippines to look for himself and for the girl who took his heart; or ‘bad boy’ Gino (Daniel) who irritates Mikay at every encounter?

Don’t miss “Princess and I” weeknights after “TV Patrol” on Primetime Bida. For more updates, log on to www.abs-cbn.com or follow @abscbndotcom on Twitter.
