MANILA - Enrique Gil appears as Julia Barretto's leading man in the latest trailer released for the upcoming primetime series "Mirabella," wherein the young actress will play the title role.

In a 45-second clip released on Monday, the two lead stars are seen meeting in a forest, where Mira's skin changes into wood.

"'Mirabella' is actually a love story," Barretto said in a previous interview. "It's about a girl na cursed siya, and she falls in love with this guy, pero 'yun pala, ayaw sa kanya ng lalaki."

"So makikita natin kung paano maapektuhan 'yung buhay ni Mira because nalaman niya na hindi niya pala mapagkakatiwalan 'yung lalaking 'yon."

Barretto did not reveal if the male character she was referring to will be portrayed by either Gil or Sam Concepcion, who is also among the cast.

Directed by Erick Salud ("Aryana," "May Isang Pangarap") and Jerome Pobocan ("Mara Clara," "May Bukas Pa"), "Mirabella" will join ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida this month.
