GMA International, the business unit that operates and distributes GMA Network’s international channels – GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV and GMA News TV International – is poised to delight its Kapuso audience abroad as it brings Kapuso Premier Actress Lovi Poe to the 2014 Pinoy Fiesta and Trade Show sa Toronto this June 28. Sponsored by GMA International and the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation (PCCF), the event is one of many celebrations around the world in commemoration of Philippine Independence Day. The program includes a performance by Lovi as well as a meet and greet with her fans.
The event will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Hall A, North Building from 9:00 AM – 11:00 PM. This month, Lovi returns to international television screens as she breathes life to the character of Shiela Salazar-Real in Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real, currently airing on the GMA’s flagship interna tional channel, GMA Pinoy TV.
Compared to her previous TV roles, Lovi plays a totally different character in the series as she is required to be adventurous and strong-willed. Eventually her vulnerability as a woman who loved a man dearly will also be revealed.
“My character here as Shiela has a strong personality and is a bit boyish. Kasi in ‘Akin Pa Rin ang Bukas’, medyo weak yung character ko, naging strong na lang siya towards the end,” said Lovi.
“But this one, strong siya in the beginning pero nung nalaman niya yun ginawa ng asawa niya… siyempre pag tayo naman mga babae kahit gaano pa tayo ka-strong but once we get our hearts broken, may time na tumitiklop tayo and that’s what’s going to happen.”
With the international premiere of their series, Lovi is also looking forward to reaching out to their fans abroad. “I’m really excited na mai-share yun sa kanila. At least it will make them feel a lot closer to us here pag may pinapakitang shows from the Philippines,” she says.
Playing the leading man in the series is Kapuso primetime king Dingdong Dantes as Anthony Real as the man Shiela fell in love with and married. However, everything will change when she finds out that she is not the only Mrs. Real; that her husband is also married to Millet portrayed by the Diamond Star Ms. Maricel Soriano.
