MANILA, Philippines - Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria shared their excitement over their newest series on ABS-CBN titled "Please Be Careful With My Heart," which will premiere next week.

"Be Careful' is so special to me as it is my first-ever lead role in a teleserye. This is also the first time that I get to work with Richard," said Sta. Maria, who will portray the role of Maya, a provincial lass who dreams of becoming a flight stewardess to help her family out of poverty.

"They will surely be inspired with Maya's character. She is so optimistic with life. For her, everything can be done and nothing is impossible," she added.

Just like Sta. Maria, Yap is also happy to have his first lead role.

"In the story, I'm a widower who works hard for his three children. But because of being busy with his business, he will need help," he said.

"It's more of an unexpected love story. Viewers can expect a lot of kilig moments and I'm sure they can relate with it," Yap added.

Also part of "Be Careful With My Heart" are Jerome Perez, Janella Salvador, and Mutya Orquia.

The series, directed by Jeffrey Jeturian and Mervyn Brondial, will air its pilot episode on July 9 (Monday) after "It's Showtime."
