Erich Gonzales in Maria la del Barrio
Star Magic talent Erich Gonzales dares go sensual as she plays the title role in Maria la del Barrio, an adaptation of a Mexican telenovela that starred the much-admired Mexican actress, Thalia.
Erich wasn’t the popular young actress she is now when the said Mexican telenovela first hit the local tv screen.
But she managed to watch the series from a CD that was lent to her by ABS-CBN.
“Ganundin po ako,” pahayag ni Enchong Dee, who has been assigned to play Erich’s leading man in the teleserye.
“Ang ganda talaga ng series, ang istorya nito at mga performance ng tauhang involved.
“Erich and I hope to be able to approximate the characterization done by the Mexican actors sa mga role assigned to us.
“Kung sabagay, we have a very good director in Rory Quintos. But we also know we have to do our parts well.”
As part of the promo ng Maria la del Barrio while it was, wika nga, making a killing sa Pilipinas, Thalia came to the country to personally thank her fans.
Another popular Mexican-Thalia telenovela that was adapted into a Tagalog series was Marimar, which had Marian Rivera in the lead role.
