MANILA, Philippines – From the phenomenal success of their top-rating series “Forevermore,” Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil – one of the country’s hottest love teams – return to primetime to give viewers a taste of love’s sweetness in ABS-CBN’s newest romantic drama “Dolce Amore.”
After making the whole country fall in love and believe in forever, Liza and Enrique take on “Dolce Amore,” a story of two young wandering souls, both in search of who they really are, who will be brought together by destiny and feel an infallible connection with each other.
“It’s a project I think almost everyone will be able to relate to. It’s about finding your identity and finding love, and the story is just so fun and uplifting,” said Liza.
She plays Serena, a young girl raised in Italy by her adoptive parents. Though she lives a good life, she cannot shake off the feeling that an important part of her identity seems to be missing – the truth about where she came from.
Bearing the same struggles is the character of Enrique, Tenten, who grew up in an orphanage suffering from the pain of his real parents’ rejection. A hardworking “raketero,” Tenten takes on different jobs to help his adoptive family.
“It’s a ‘peasant meets a princess’ kind of feel. It’s a very light teleserye, like what we all love – kind of ‘Forevermore’ feels,” shared Enrique.
Aside from “Forevermore,” the success of LizQuen also translated in the big screen, with “Just the Way You Are” and “Everyday I Love You” being certified box-office hits.
Moreover, Liza said that fans should expect her team-up with Enrique to level up in terms of ‘kilig,’ and that they will be more open to experimenting with their characters in “Dolce Amore.”
Serena’s and Tenten’s worlds will collide when Serena, in search of herself, wanders off and travels to the Philippines, a country she is strangely drawn to and heard about from her Filipina nanny.
From their unexpected meetup, the two will discover a sense of belonging with each other and will find themselves exploring the greatest adventure of all – falling in love.
Kapamilya singer-actor Matteo Guidicelli, meanwhile, will take on the role of Giancarlo, Serena’s best friend who is secretly in love with her.
Playing as Liza’s adoptive parents in the series are Cherie Gil (Luciana) and Ruben Maria Soriquez (Roberto), while Edgar Mortiz (Dodoy), Rio Locsin (Paps), and Kean Cipriano (Binggoy) will depict Enrique’s simple but loving adoptive family.
Also included in the “Dolce Amore” cast are Sunshine Cruz, Andrew E, and Frenchie Dy.
