“LITTLE Princess” is a new GMA Afternoon Prime teleserye, directed by L.A. Madridejos and Don Michael Perez. It stars Jo Berry in the title role and starts airing this Monday, replacing “The End of Us” of Carmina Villarroel and Zoren Legaspi that ends this Friday.
Jo Berry plays Princess M. Montivano, a little person who’s the daughter of Angelika de la Cruz as Elise and Jestoni Alarcon as Marcus Montivano. Angelika raised Jo by herself while Jestoni is a rich businessman who is married to the imperious Geneva Cruz as Odessa. Jestoni doesn’t know that Jo is his daughter.
Jo is determined to succeed in life to give her mom a better life. She gains fame as a champion Mobile Legend gamer, along with her good friends Rodjun Cruz as Jaxon and Therese Malvar as Masoy in their team.
Also in the cast are Juancho Trivino as Damien, Jo’s rival gamer whose dad, Lander Vera Perez, is a competitor of Jestoni’s company; Jenine Desiderio as Rodjun’s meddlesome mother, Tess Antonio as Angelika’s good friend and introducing Gabrielle Hahn as Adrianna, the adopted daughter of Jestoni and Geneva who will be a contravida to Jo.
Jo had a very tragic experience during this pandemic as her dad, grandfather and brother all succumbed to the virus.
“When they offered this to me, sabi ko, baka hindi ko magawa. Kasi masyadong mabigat ang pinagdaraanan ko. Wasak ang puso ko, e sanay akong binibigay ko ang buong puso ko sa trabaho. But when i read the script, ‘yung character ko, si Princess, I felt makaka-inspire siya sa ibang tao para lumaban sa buhay. The show actually helped me to move on with my life and tackle the challenges na dumarating sa buhay ko. Lahat naman tayo, kailangan nating kayanin ang mga pagsubok dahil nandito pa tayo sa mundong ito. I’m happy and thankful sa GMA sa projects na ibinibigay nila sa akin, lalo ngayon, maraming walang trabaho dahil sa pandemic but heto, I have a new drama series which shows na hindi masama ang mangarap basta magsikap ka, do your best, and call on God to help you.”
