Richard, Dawn to star in new soap
MANILA -- It's confirmed: Actor Richard Gomez will reunite with former girlfriend Dawn Zulueta in the upcoming series "You're My Home."
In an interview on Thursday, Gomez and Zulueta said they are happy to work again together for their fans after the success of their love team's reunion in last year's phenomenal hit series "Walang Hanggan."
"Right after 'Walang Hanggan' maraming may gusto na gagawa kami ng soap pero it took a while. So ngayon pagpasok ng 2014 mayroon silang mapapanood na Richard and Dawn," Gomez said.
"Siyempre gusto na naming i-announce sa mga fans na matagal nang naghihintay, to give them an idea kung anong klase na magkakaroon kami," Zulueta said.
The two said the upcoming series is a family drama.
"This time we start off as a married couple and what a married couple goes through -- conflicts (and) differences," Zulueta said.
"Then along the way kung ano 'yung mga romantic, 'yung mga sweet moments doon na lang papasok. Ang importante ay makita nila 'yung value nung soap. It's really about family, how they cope up with struggles," Gomez added.
According to Gomez and Zulueta, they both have the support of their respective partners.
"In fact, matagal na niyang gustong masimulan dahil madami nang naghihintay na mga fans na magkaroon ng follow up 'yung Richard and Dawn," said Gomez, who is married to 4th District of Leyte Rep. Lucy Torres.
"Matagal na niyang alam na mayroon kaming project (ni Richard)," said Zulueta, who is married to Davao Del Norte Rep. Anton Lagdameo.
Joining Gomez and Zulueta in the new series are Iza Calzado, Ella Cruz, Francis Magundayao, Shaina Magdayao, Enchong Dee and Cherry Pie Picache.
Apart from the series, Gomez and Zulueta are also set to do a movie.
