Where do you draw the line to your promise of eternal love to someone who has already passed away? Will you continue to bind yourself to a love that’s gone or will you welcome a new love that’s just waiting to unfold?
This October 5, GMA Network vows to give viewers more reasons to believe in the power of love in the second installment of the unique drama anthology ‘I Can See You: The Promise’ on the Telebabad block.
The original drama introduces the fresh ensemble cast – beautiful and multi-talented actress Andrea Torres, award-winning actress Yasmien Kurdi, hunk actor Benjamin Alves and versatile actor Paolo Contis.
In observance of anti-COVID-19 protocols alongside the Network’s precautionary measures, the cast and crew of the show underwent RT-PCR tests, lock-in tapings and strictly practiced government-mandated safety and health protocols on the set.
Andrea shares that her trust in the network and their team to keep them safe prompted her to enjoy the taping, “Trust your network and production team dahil pinaghahandaan nila ang lahat. Actually, na-enjoy namin ‘yung taping namin. Umuwi kaming masaya hanggang ngayon, looking forward na ako sa next kong work.”
Benjamin also commends the precautionary measures taken by GMA and the production team to safeguard everyone on set, “We were one of the first productions to start taping in GMA, as far as the teledrama. It was good and it was a great stepping stone for everyone else to start going. We really thank the network and production for making sure that we are safe and that we were able to perform without worrying about anything else.”
Meanwhile, Yasmien expresses her admiration to her co-actor Paolo for lightening up the mood on set, “Kapag katrabaho mo si Kuya Paolo, sobrang gaan ng trabaho. Dahil pinapa-lighten up niya ‘yung mood ng lahat ng tao sa set including ‘yung production and staff.”
Paolo, who recalls being tended to by his seniors, believes that it is his duty to look after everyone on set, “Naranasan ko noon, ‘yung mga kuya ko sa set they take it upon themselves to lead the set. Dahil ako ‘yung parang ‘senior’ dito, I bring food and check on everyone. More than anything else, I want the set to be happy.”
The story begins with a rich widowed man named Frank (Paolo) who loses his passion for life and becomes a recluse after losing his wife Clarisse (Yasmien) from an accident. When Jude (Benjamin), his cousin and right-hand man in the company, visits him in the lake house where he stays at, Frank takes an interest in the latter’s girlfriend Ivy (Andrea), an aspiring artist who is willing to do anything to take her family out of poverty. As Ivy starts to exhibit certain characteristics of Clarisse, will Frank be able to see Ivy for who she is or will he continue to hold on to the spirit of his deceased wife?
Also playing an exciting role in this series is Maey Bautista as Rowena Marquez, Frank’s cheerful house helper who is a witness to the latter’s undying love for his deceased wife.
