Angel Locsin's TV comeback is here and we couldn't be more excited! Due to a spinal injury in 2017, Angel took a break from acting and even withdrew from reprising her role as Darna for the movie remake.
Angel's new action/drama series called The General's Daughter features her as a lieutenant named Rhian Bonifacio. In the story, there are two main generals and two feuding families: the De Leons and Guerreros. Rhian, originally a De Leon, is taken from her family, raised as a Guerrero, instructed to infiltrate the military, and is given one mission: to kill Marcial De Leon, her real father.
It's all sorts of dramatic and intense and it's time to meet the main cast of this series, starting with...
Paulo will be playing the role of Franco Segismundo, Rhian's kababata who's ready to protect her from anything (and who loves her in secret)!
JC De Vera
Here, JC stars as Captain Ethan del Fierro, a soldier who becomes part of Rhian's mission as she uses him to get closer to the De Leon family. There's a catch, though: He falls in love with her for real!
We'll see Ryza in the show as the "replacement daughter," Jessie, who's adopted by the De Leons after their own daughter goes missing. Jessie is Ethan's ex, and that's why Rhian decided to be "friendly" with him. Ryza has been known for her kontrabida roles, so we're expecting some tension between her and Angel!
Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte
Claire Del Fiero (Loisa) is Ethan's little sister, while Ivan Cañega (Ronnie) is Franco's right-hand man. Since they belong to two opposing parties, and their "kuyas" are fighting over Rhian, we can expect a star-crossed love story for these two!
Albert Martinez and Eula Valdez
Rhian's real parents General Marcial and Corazon De Leon lost her as a kid (in true Filipino teleserye fashion), and have been looking for her for decades!
Janice De Belen and Tirso Cruz III
Rhian believes that General Santiago and Amelia Guerrero are her real parents, and she's been trained to follow their every order and whim, but the only thing she really wants is to win their love.
Maricel Soriano and Arjo Atayde
Rhian meets kindhearted mother and son Isabelle and Elai Sarmiento when she gets into an accident and is need of help.
The General's Daughter will premiere on Monday, January 21, 2019! Watch the full trailer below:
