Dingdong faces new foes, gets new partners in ‘Alyas Robin Hood 2’

Dingdong Dantes returns as Pepe de Jesus, a former vigilante known as Robin Hood, in the second season of GMA’s primetime series “Alyas Robin Hood.” 

The action is more exciting, and the stunts are more breathtaking, says the actor. The whole “Alyas Robin Hood” team are doubling all their efforts to create a good show. 

“Kapag sinabi mong part two, whatever you saw last season kailangan mag double up in terms of the drama, the action, sa comedy, total look, production value, double up lahat,” Dantes says, “Biyaya sa amin na nabigyan kami ng second season kaya dodoblehin namin ‘yung saya na maaaring i-expect nila at gagawin talaga namin ‘yan.” 

He says that more than the unexpected kidnapping of his mother, his character, who is now a lawyer, must face new battles. A powerful evil force threatens the city, secrets from his past will be revealed, relationships will be torn apart, and shocking revelations will be made. Now more than ever, Pepe must dig up his past and revive his alter ego.

“Alyas Robin Hood” also stars Andrea Torres as Venus, the love of Pepe’s life and his faithful ally; Ruru Madrid as Andres Silang, the geeky adopted son of Emilio (Edu Manzano) who has a secret persona as “The Marbleman”; and as one of the leading ladies of Dingdong Dantes, Solenn Heussaff as the rich and pampered Iris Lizeralde who will also fall in love with Robin Hood.

 Returning for the second season is much-awarded actress Jaclyn Jose as Judy, Pepe and Caloy’s mother. 

Playing a very special role in the series is seasoned actor Edu Manzano as Emilio Albano, a famous and charismatic real estate agent, but underneath that exterior, is a manipulative man with an insatiable desire for power.

Bringing more action and excitement to Pepe’s life are original and new cast members: Gary Estrada as Caloy, Pepe’s older brother and father of Lizzy; Paolo Contis as Daniel Acosta, a principled police officer; Jay Manalo as Pablo, the leader of the Kadugo Brotherhood and Emilio’s top assassin; Rey “PJ” Abellana as Leandro, Venus’ father; Gio Alvarez as Jekjek, Pepe’s confidante and best friend; KC Montero as Rigor, a cocky and mean police officer who is also Emilio’s ally; Lindsay De Vera as Lizzy De Jesus, Pepe’s niece and a supporter of Marbleman; Dave Bornea as Julian Balbuena, a crucial supporter of Marbleman; Rob Moya as Alex Cruz, Daniel’s assistant police officer; Antonette Garcia as Frida, Venus’ snooty yaya; Luri Nalus as Junjun, the odd but endearing man in Venus’ household.

“Alyas Robin Hood” is under the helm once again of Dominic Zapata, with the creative team composed of creative director Roy Iglesias.
