GMA Network continues to prove its commitment to providing top-notch and thought-provoking entertainment to its viewers with the first installment from the drama mini-series “Stories from the Heart: Loving Miss Bridgette” on GMA Afternoon Prime.

Stories from the Heart is a unique drama mini-series of unusual love stories reflecting how social media affect the relationship of lovers and the people surrounding them.

The drama mini-series begins with ‘Loving Miss Bridgette’ which introduces the much-awaited fresh pairing of fast-rising Kapuso heartthrob Kelvin Miranda as Marcus Villareal, a self-righteous Biology student who is bent on pursuing his counselor; and, in her very first GMA series, character actress and the new Kapuso darling Beauty Gonzalez as Bridgette de Leon, an old-fashioned guidance counselor who is recently annulled and has a chance encounter with her student that will change both of their lives.

Beauty shares her sentiments and experiences taping for her highly-anticipated debut series in the Network, “Feeling ko ang tagal ko nang Kapuso kasi sobrang welcoming at bait nilang lahat sa akin. I feel so privileged that there is a good company that trusts and believes in me like GMA Network, with my capacity as an actress. Nakakaganang ibigay ko lahat ng best ko para sa kanila.”

Playing equally important roles in the series are Mr. Lloyd Samartino as Manolo Villareal, Marcus’ laidback father who is really close to his son; and Ms. Bing Loyzaga as Stella Villareal, Marcus’ domineering career-oriented mother and Manolo’s ex-wife who would do anything just to keep her reputation at bay.

Making this series even special is the stellar roster of cast including Polo Ravales as Tristan Enriquez, Bridgette’s narcissistic ex-husband who cheated on her; Adrian Alandy as Luther Tamayo, Bridgette’s co-teacher and suitor who will first learn about her affair with Marcus; Tart Carlos as Elsa Manalo, Bridgette’s supportive confidante who is also a Liberal Arts professor from the same university; Noel Colet as Dr. Solano, head of the guidance and counseling department; Nikki Co as Waxee Galang, Marcus’ cheerful best friend; Pamela Prinster as Abby Mendoza, Marcus’ cunning ex-girlfriend who goes to great lengths just to get back with him; Shanicka Arganda as Nina Torrente, Abby’s friend and classmate who appears to be her minion.

Loving Miss Bridgette is under the supervision of the GMA Entertainment Group headed by SVP for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, FVP for Drama Redgie A. Magno, SAVP for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy, Senior Program Manager Anthony R. Pastorpide, and Executive Producer James Ryan Manabat.

Stories from the Heart: Loving Miss Bridgette – under the helm of esteemed director Adolf Alix Jr. – airs weekdays, on GMA Afternoon Prime.

Viewers abroad can also catch the program via GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.
