International Emmy-nominated actress Jane Oineza and Kapamilya heartthrob Marlo Mortel will team up for the first time in the upcoming drama episode of ABS-CBN’s “Maalaala Mo Kaya” this Saturday (October 25). They will play the characters of cancer patients Rovil and Paolo.
When Paolo (Marlo) is diagnosed with leukemia, he becomes cynical and loses his will to live, thinking that sooner or later, he will still die. Paolo is at his lowest point when he meets Rovil (Jane), whose leukemia is much worse than his. But, unlike Paolo, Rovil is still optimistic that she will overcome her illness. She teaches Paolo to value every moment they are alive by living life to the fullest and making unforgettable happy memories.
How can a terminal disease give Rovil and Paolo their little infinity? Is love enough to bravely face death?
Joining Jane and Marlo in their first “MMK” project together are Andrea Del Rosario, Justin Cuyugan, Mariel Pamintuan, Cheska Billiones, Deydey Amansec, Patrick Sugui, Bryan Homecillo, Jenny Miller, Suzette Ranillo, and Tess Antonio. It is directed by Raz De la Torre and written by Benson Logronio and Arah Jell Badayos. “MMK” is led by business unit head Malou Santos and creative manager Mel Mendoza-del Rosario.
Capturing the hearts of Filipino viewers all over the world for the past 23 years, “Maalaala Mo Kaya” has legions of fans from different generations who cried, laughed, fell in love, and got inspired through the real-life narratives of the show’s letter-senders.
