Second (or nth) choice for a teleserye role
« on: February 21, 2014, 12:04:31 PM »
Naisip ko lang, may mga teleserye roles na originally nakatoka or considered given to a certain actor but for one reason or another napunta to someone else. And as the cliche goes, the rest is history.

Eto mga naalala ko:

Mickey Ferriols - Sa kanya dapat yung role ni G Tongi sa Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako, pero di siya sumunod sa contract. (http://www.newsflash.org/1999/02/sb/sb000707.htm) Noong time na yun, she was in Eat Bulaga and eto yung time na she was linked to Vic Sotto. Years later, she appeared in Hiram as Heart Evangelista's deceased mother. And nagsunud-sunod ang appearances niya sa ABS teleseryes, yun nga lang di na plum ang roles.

Vina Morales - Read somewhere na siya dapat ang mag-portray ng Claudia Buenavista sa Pangako sa 'Yo, na we all know was competently portrayed by Jean Garcia. After PSY, Vina and Eula Valdez (her supposed nemesis sa PSY) played important roles in Darating ang Umaga and Maria Flordeluna.

Maricel Soriano - Siya dapat ang mother ni Gerald Anderson sa Bukas na Lang Kita Mamahalin. We know what happened early last year and napunta kay Dawn Zulueta yung role. Too bad, Maricel is now with GMA and will soon appear alongside Dingdong Dantes and Lovi Poe in Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real.

Lovi Poe - Speaking of, how true na she was being considered to portray Maja Salvador's role sa The Legal Wife? This was prior to her renewing her contract sa GMA and headlining Akin pa Rin ang Bukas. Original choice IIRC was Andi Eigenmann kaso she was already committed to portray lead role sa Galema. Nabasa ko 'to sa PEx.

ETA: May article nga about this. (http://www.philstar.com/psn-showbiz/2013/07/03/961070/lovi-muntik-nang-maging-kapamilya)

Kim Chiu and Jessy Mendiola - It was confirmed in a news write-up na silang dalawa ang first 2 choices to portray Dyesebel. Kim though was too skinny, while Jessy doesn't seem to have charisma based on her portrayal of Maria Mercedes. And now we know that Anne Curtis will soon grace Primetime Bida with this iconic role.

Andi Eigenmann and Jessy Mendiola - Sila dapat ang gaganap sa roles nina Kim at Maja sa Ina Kapatid Anak.

Iza Calzado - replaced by Maricar Reyes in Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon

Kiko Estrada and Diego Loyzaga - sa kanila dapat ang roles nina Enrique Gil and Sam C sa Mira Bella (and I think mas may chemistry sina Kiko and Julia pero mgt decision daw)

Paulo Avelino - replaced by Jericho Rosales in The Legal Wife

Angel Locsin - sa kanya talaga ang MariMar kung hindi lang lumipat sa ABS-CBN

^ Thanks! =D

Onga, wonder kung ano ang naging reception sa IKA kung naging sina Andi at Jessy yung mga bida, tapos Martin del Rosario and was it Joseph Marco yung mga leading men. Malamang pang-hapon 'to, agree?

Speaking of Maricar, siya raw dapat yung bida sa Reputasyon kaso too close to reality (i.e. the Hayden-gate). (http://www.abante-tonite.com/issue/july1611/showbiz_others03.htm)

About Angel, I know this is off-topic. Anyway, sinasabi na kundi lumapit si Angel sa ABS, wala malamang si Marian. I can't help but wonder though what would be of Angel kung di tinurn-down dati ni Maxene Magalona yung role ni Alwina sa Mulawin.

Mundo Man Ay Magunaw

Allan Paule portrayed Emilio Garcia's role in early promo plugs, including MMAM's full trailer. Then the former appeared playing a different character.

How true na kay Kristine Hermosa daw dapat ang role na Monica sa The Legal Wife?

Sa kabila naman, second choice Lang si Jolina sa role that Agot Isidro turned down sa Mundo Mo'y Akin.

Most notable case: Pilar Pilapil replaced Amalia Fuentes in Muling Buksan ang Puso.

http://www.hatawtabloid.com/2013/11/09/angel-2nd-choice-lang-sa-legal-wife-si-kristine-raw-ang-unang-inalok/

For Angel daw talaga yung material according to the producers themselves. But then again, inevitable naman yung mga ganitong hush hush.

For teleserye 'tong forum na 'to I know, pero dagdag ko na rin tutal SC films naman. (And para di na rin mag-open ng thread sa SC forum hehehe.)

- Jericho Rosales was the first choice for Piolo Pascual's award-winning role sa Dekada '70. Kaso pinalitan siya and Echo was given Pangako sa 'Yo instead. (http://entertainment.tempo.com.ph/2013/12/when-second-choice-is-the-best-choice/#.UwcxNPmSzA0)

- Third choice lang si John Lloyd Cruz sa The Mistress. Originally si Sam Milby dapat ang kapartner ni Bea kaso he decided to pursue Hollywood. Derek Ramsey was the next choice kaso lumipat siya sa TV5. (http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/entertainment/12/01/11/derek-doesnt-mind-being-second-choice-after-sam)
Napaaga tuloy yung reunion nina Bea-JLC, which was supposed to take place pa sa A Beautiful Affair.

- Toni Gonzaga was the supposed leading lady of Vic Sotto sa Pak Pak My Dr. Kwak. (http://www.pep.ph/news/28441/bea-alonzo-doesn39t-mind-being-the-second-choice-as-vic-sotto39s-leading-lady-in-new-comedy-film)

Now back to teleseryes:

- Jodi Sta. Maria wasn't the first choice to portray Maya in BCWMH. (Ini-insinuate ni Alfie Lorenzo sa tabloid write-ups niya na kay Judy Ann Santos daw dapat yung role. Alfie as we know is Juday's manager.)

Also, Richard Yap wasn't the first choice to portray Ser Chief's role. This was according to Che Che Lazaro's documentary on teleseryes last year.

- Derek Ramsey was the first choice para maging leading man ni Cristine Reyes sa Reputasyon. (http://www.loveradio.com.ph/index.php?page=news&ncat=3&nid=266&type=pep) Above, I posted na kay Maricar Reyes daw dapat yung lead role dito.

- Magkaribal was supposed to be Claudine and Gretchen Barretto's teleserye.

- Not really a second choice story, but I found this interesting:
Judy Ann Santos auditioned for the titular role in Anna Luna, which Margarita Fuentes got. Juday instead was given the lead role in Ula Ang Batang Gubat. Years later, she landed her first lead role in an ABS soap sa Mara Clara. (http://neonnerenn.blogspot.com/2010/01/making-of-drama-princess.html)

Primetime siguro ang Reputasyon should Maricar and Derek have headlined.

Ito pa...

- Si Christopher de Leon daw dapat si "Ser Chief" sa BCWMH. Tapos si Juday sa role ni "Anya" na pinalitan ng "Maya" dahil na rin sa pagpapalit sa kanya ni Jodi. Both Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria 'raw' ay second choices.

- Sina Joseph Marco and Martin Del Rosario ang original leading men sa IKA sames as Andi and Jessy sa lead roles na Margaux and Celine. Atsaka mukhang K-Gold yata dapat ang IKA, title pa lang. Pero nalipat sa primetime with 'bigatin' stars. Napunta yata sa Primetime Bida dahil sa MMAM na "awayang-sisters" din.

Supposedly for TLW's case:

Kristine Hermosa -> Angel Locsin
Paulo Avelino -> Jericho Rosales
Lovi Poe -> Andi Eigenmann -> Maja Salvador
Jake Cuenca -> JC De Vera

Sa tingin ko Angel will still be Darna after all and siguro nga destined na rin naman si Marian sa stardom kasi kinailangan ng GMA ng bagong queen and she responded.
