MANILA - Sexy actress Meg Imperial appears topless in a new set of photos for her upcoming afternoon drama series "Moon of Desire," which will also star Ellen Adarna.

Released on Wednesday, the photos by lensman Jojit Lorenzo show the 21-year-old actress appearing almost naked, with only a yellow cloth covering parts of her body.

But despite the suggestive nature of the shoot, Imperial was quick to point out during a press conference on Wednesday that she will sport a "sexy but innocent" look for the upcoming soap.

"Hindi naman po ako magpa-frontal kasi hindi pwede sa TV pero 'yung likod-likod nagawa ko rito, mga side, ganyan. Abangan niyo, maganda kasi," she said.

"'Yung pagiging 'desirable' ko may pagka-innocent, hindi siya 'yung basta-basta na lang maghububad o anuman. Desirable ako in an innocent way," she added.

Directed by FM Reyes, "Moon of Desire" will also star JC de Vera, Dominic Roque and Miko Raval and will center on a young woman (Imperial) who has hypertrichosis, a medical condition where she is covered with hair from head to toe

"Moon of Desire" is set to premiere on March 31 as part of ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Gold line-up.
