A family like no other

    44

    GMA opens February with an intriguing drama that discusses love in different forms with the primetime series, “Love of My Life.”

    The soap, premiering today right after “The Gift,” is topbilled by one of the industry’s highly-acclaimed actresses – Coney Reyes as Isabella Gonzales; sought-after and multitalented actress-model Rhian Ramos as Kelly Generoso; and beautiful and award-winning actress Carla Abellana as Adelle Nisperos. Joining them are Mikael Daez as Nikolai Gonzales and Tom Rodriguez as Stefano Gonzales in a very special role.

    The Gonzales family is not like any other. Coney plays Isabella, the matriarch, a rich widow with high standards who would stop at nothing to get what’s best for her family. Nikolai (Mikael), her youngest son, has grown into a rebellious man after causing a traumatic family accident which led to the death of his father. Stefano (Tom), the favorite son, is a family-oriented architect who fathers the child of Kelly (Rhian), his former lover who holds a vengeful heart due to what she has been through in the name of love.

    When Stefano crosses paths with Adelle (Carla), a widow with a child who manages her own handicraft business, things begin to get better. Amidst Isabella’s objection towards their relationship, Stefano and Adelle strive to build a normal family. Their seemingly perfect life crumbles not only when Kelly barges into the picture along with the estranged Nikolai, but also when Stefano gets diagnosed with a terminal illness.

    How can pain bring together such opposing characters for the sake of the love of their lives? How will Adelle, Kelly, Nikolai, and Isabella adapt to their unusual set-up, living inside one house for the sickly Stefano?

    Playing vital roles are Anna Marin as Siony, Adelle’s doting and supportive mother; Vaness del Moral as Joyce, Adelle’s strict but supportive friend who also helps run her handicraft business; Geleen Eugenio as Manang Eden, the Gonzales’ family cook and a warm-hearted spinster; Samantha Lopez as Janice, Isabella’s fashionable and loyal personal assistant; Maey Bautista as Cha-mae, Adelle’s humorous and kikay friend who works in her handicraft business; Ethan Hariot as Gideon, Kelly’s charming son from Stefano whom he abandoned; Raphael Landicho as Andrei, Adelle’s adorable son from her ex-boyfriend; Levi Ignacio as Mang Arsing, the Gonzales’ trusted driver who is also a close friend of Isabella’s sons; Carl Guevarra as Kiel, close confidante and business partner of Stefano, Dino Pastrano as Elmer, Adelle’s loving brother who manages their family farm; and with the special participation of Johnny Revilla.

    “Love of My Life” is under the supervision of the Production team headed by SVP for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, VP for Drama Redgie A. Magno, AVP for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy, Senior Program Manager Cathy Ochoa Perez, and Executive Producer Michele Borja.

    The series is a product of the visionary minds of creative director Aloy Adlawan; creative head Suzette Doctolero; creative consultant Agnes Gagelonia-Uligan; headwriter Ronalean Sales; writers Ana Aleta Nadela , Dang Sulit-Marino and brainstormers Gilda Marcelino and Nehem Dalliego.
