A ‘royal’ loveteam
City Times

Without a doubt — and following the spectacular box-office success of their movie I’ve Fallen For You — Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson are showbiz’s hottest young loveteam. In fact, showbiz insiders have taken to calling them the ‘royal loveteam’...

because like the mythological Greek king Midas, everything Kim and Gerald touch turns to gold. The latest proof is Love Spell Presents: Cindy-rella, which stars the two and Be Bench: The Model Search finalist John James Uy in a Cinderella-type story that also borrows elements from the popular Hollywood film Kate and Leopold starring Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman.

In the film, Meg plays a woman who falls in love with a dashing Prince Charming figure from the past; in Cindy-rella, the story begins in the fairytale world, where Prince William (John James) is celebrating his birthday with a grand ball. Among those invited was the pretty and kind-hearted Cindy-rella (Kim). But on the night of the ball, her evil stepsisters and stepmother tear her clothes and lock her in the basement. Thankfully, her fairy godmother comes to the rescue and helps her make it to the ball with a fancy dress and carriage and a warning to come home by midnight, or else.

At the ball, Prince William chooses Cindy-rella as his dancing partner. Her family grows envious and throws her into a magical well, which links the fairytale world and the real world. The poor lass comes into the real world unconscious; fortunately, she is saved by a modern-day Prince Charming, Albert (Gerald). He falls in love with her and helps her survive the real world. But the dilemma is this: can they be together when they belong to different worlds? Will Cindy choose Albert, a normal human being, over a dashing prince in the fairytale world? Will there be a happy ending?

As of this writing, no one knows how the story will turn out. But there is definitely a happy ending in the offing for Kim and Gerald, who are clearly enjoying tremendous support from ABS-CBN management. This is already their fourth time to star in a Love Spell episode; they starred in the first episode, a gender-bending comedy titled My Boy, My Girl in which they ‘switched’ identities.

Kim and Gerald Revive A Classic Fairytale on LoveSpell

Fresh from the success of their movie I've Fallen For You, Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson are returning to the small screen with the magic of a fairytale in Lovespell presents Cindy-Rella. Adding a funny twist to the much loved story, the Kimerald tandem will surely bring more 'kilig' to the show than "My Boy, My Girl" their first series on Lovespell. Cindy-Rella will also begin a new chapter of the show as the romantic mini-series extends from the regular four episodes to a full season of 13 episodes.

On their fourth Lovespell installment, Kim will play the role Cindy, a kind-hearted young girl who lives in the medieval times. Like in the fairytale, Cindy has evil stepsisters and a stepmother who treat her like a slave. They also forbade her to attend the birthday party of Prince William, the kingdom's most sought bachelor. But thanks to a fairy godmother, Cindy makes it to the party in an elegant dress, aboard a beautiful carriage. However, Cindy must come home before midnight, or she will instantly return to her filthy appearance. At the party, Prince William is enticed by Cindy's beauty and asks her for a dance. But when her stepmother and stepsisters discover this, they throw Cindy into a well, not to be seen again by the prince.

But through a sudden magical intervention, the well serves as a portal to the modern world, and Cindy instantly wakes up to an environment unknown to her. Enter Albert, played by Gerald, as the modern-day city boy who will help Cindy survive in the real world. Albert eventually falls in love with Cindy, but can they be happy together when they belong to different worlds? Will Cindy choose Albert, the normal guy in her real world, or William, the dashing prince of her fairytale realm?

With Kim and Gerald in this LoveSpell chapter is Sheryl Cruz, playing Cindy's evil stepmother. Sheryl immediately dispells all the rumors surrounding her crossover as a Kapamilya. She says that she is only exercising her right as a freelance actress and that there is no bad blood between her and the other network. Sheryl is also happy to be working with the hottest young loveteam of today given that Sheryl had her share of being in a popular loveteam during her That's Entertainment days.

Also in the cast is Asia's Queen of Songs Pilita Corales who will play Albert's grandmother. Pilita's real-life daughter, veteran actress Jacky Lou Blanco, will be playing the role of Albert's mother. Rap icon Andrew E. will play Albert's father, while Star In A Million finalist Sheryn Regis will play Cindy's fairy godmother. In his first TV role, Be Bench hunk John James Uy will play Prince William, the man who will stand between Cindy and Albert.

Fall in love with Kim and Gerald as they fuse fantasy and reality in one enchanting mini-series. Watch LoveSpell presents Cindy-Rella beginning October 14th, Sunday, before "The Buzz" only here on ABS-CBN.

"Love Spell: Cindy-rella," a classic fairy tale with a twist
Nerisa Almo
Love Spell Pictures

ABS-CBN has once again trusted the love team of Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson for an upcoming mini-series that will add color to viewers' Sunday afternoons starting October 14.

Love Spell will now be shown for a longer period (instead of four weeks, the mini-series will run for 13 weeks) and will be back on its previous timeslot (from 11:15 am slot to an afternoon slot of 3:15 pm before The Buzz).

Kim and Gerald starred in the pilot mini-series of Love Spell. Their tandem was such a hit among televiewers that they also played in two other Love Spell mini-series. Now, these two young actors return to captivate their fans as they bring to life the famous fairy tale, Cinderella, but with a twist of reality in Love Spell: Cindy-rella.

Kim said she was excited when she knew about this project. “Sobrang natutuwa po ako kasi pinapanood ko lang yung Cinderella noong bata ako. Tapos po sa Love Spell, ako yung gaganap na Cindy-rella.

“At saka nakakatuwa din kasi kami ni Gerald yung nag-pilot nung unang Love Spell na for four weeks. Tapos ngayon, kami po ang pinagkatiwalaan na mag-pilot ng 13 weeks ng Love Spell.”

CINDERELLA WITH A TWIST. Ruben Bayani, one of the directors of “Cindy-rella” said that their adaptation of the the classic fairy tale Cinderella would be different from its other versions.

He explained, “Well, ang Cinderella ay isang napaka-classic na soap opera plotline kaya ang dalas niyang puwedeng i-revisit at i-interpret. Kasi nga mayaman yung concept na yan so nagagawa siyang comedy, nagagawa siyang suspense, nagagawa siyang heavy drama.

“For Love Spell, dahil ito’y nagke-cater sa Sunday afternoon viewers, light talaga na may pagka-cartoons na animated. Hindi siya na-design para maging depressing or maging dark kasi masaya siyang panoorin. In line with sa look ng successful na show ng Love Spell na may comedy, may fantasy, may music, ganun din ang Love Spell na ito. Maraming nakakatawang sitwasyon, may effects, may magic, may music.”

THE PLOT. Love Spell: “Cindy-rella” begins in the fairy tale world, where Prince William (John James Uy) is celebrating his 21st birthday. His uncle invites all the ladies in the kingdom to a ball, hoping to find a wife for his nephew. Among those invited is the pretty, kindhearted Cindy-rella (Kim), but on the night of the ball, her evil stepsisters and stepmother tear her clothes and lock her in the basement.

Cindy-ella's fairy godmother comes to the rescue and enables her to go to the ball in a fancy dress and carriage. But she warns that Cindy-ella should be home by midnight or she'll be caught back in her usual filthy clothes.

The story goes on until after the prince chooses Cindy as his dancing partner. Her wicked family grows envious and throws her into a well, which links the fairytale world and the real world. The poor lass comes into the real world unconscious; fortunately, she is saved by a modern-day prince charming, Albert (Gerald).

He falls in love with her, so he helps Cindy-rella survive in the real world. But can they be together when they belong to different worlds? Will Cindy choose Albert, a normal human being, over a dashing prince in the fairytale realm? Will there be a happy ending for Cindy-ella?

THE CHARACTERS. The press noticed that Sheryl Cruz was included as one of the cast members. Sheryl is associated with GMA-7 as an effective kontrabida in Mga Mata ni Anghelita and Bakekang.

The media asked, “Did you really have to import an actress from another network to play the role of the evil step mother? How did you base your casting of characters?”

Bayani answered, “Well, kapag nagka-casting talaga, ang totoo hindi naman kinu-consider kung taga-saan siya, ang iniisip yung bagay sa character. Kina-casting talaga ang mga characters based sa kung nakukuha nila yung spirit, yung essence ng character.

“Kapag kina-cast sila, bine-base sa kung kaya ba nilang bigyan ng tamang interpretations para sa project. Sheryl is just as wonderful as a step mom kasi nga mahirap kung ibang actress, magiging parang serious, na heavy drama, na maldita siya. Ang hirap i-capture ng nuances ng comedy, nung pagiging animated, na parang cartoons. So yun, kina-casting sila kung gaano sila kabagay dun sa roles na meron yung story.”

Meanwhile, the other actors that will fulfill the magical story of Cindy-rella are Ms. Pilita Corrales, Jackie Lou Blanco, Andrew E, Sheryn Regis, Mara Lopez, Kiray Celis, Hyubs Azarcon, and Jeffrey Tam. This show will also introduce Be Bench finalist John James Uy.

Fall in love with Kim and Gerald in the comedy-fantasy series of Love Spell titled “Cindy-rella,” starting Sunday, October 14, before The Buzz on ABS-CBN.

Kim defends screen partner Gerald against Snooky's criticism
Rose Garcia

Maituturing na napakasuwerte ng loveteam nina Kim Chiu at Gerald Anderson dahil sa malaking tiwala sa kanila ng kanilang home network, ang ABS-CBN. Pagkatapos ng kanilang launching movie na I've Fallen For You, balik-telebisyon sina Kim at Gerald via Love Spell Presents Cindy-rella na magsisimula nang mapanood ngayong Linggo, October 14.

"Sobrang natutuwa po akong talaga," simulang pahayag ni Kim sa presscon ng kanilang show sa 14th Floor ng ELJ Building, kagabi, October 8. "Dati po kasi, napapanood ko lang ang Cinderella, pero ngayon gagampanan ko na po. At saka nakakatuwa po dahil kami rin po ni Gerald noon ang nag-pilot ng Love Spell na four weeks. Ngayon po, kami rin ni Gerald ang magpa-pilot naman ng kauna-unahang Love Spell na thirteen weeks naman po."

Siyempre pa, muling itinanong kay Kim ang katayuan ng relasyon nila ng ni Gerald. Sa presscon noon ng kanilang pelikula, sinabi ni Kim na between "8" or "9" ang pagkagusto niya kay Gerald. May nabago na ba sa "like"-level niya para sa binata at tataas pa kaya ang rating from "9" to "10"?

"Naku, huwag na lang po ‘yon!" natatawang sabi ng batang aktres. "'Tsaka kailan lang naman yung last presscon natin. Ang masasabi ko lang po, basta sobrang special ni Gerald. Nagpapasalamat po akong talaga na siya ang ka-loveteam ko.

"Hindi kami, pero we care for each other. Walang commitment," pahabol niya.

Pero hindi raw talaga maiwasan ni Kim na hindi maapektuhan sa intrigang kesyo nagli-live-in na sila ni Gerald.

"Grabe naman ang isyung ‘yon! Ang bata-bata ko pa! At saka magagalit ang Daddy ko, e, lagi lang ngang nasa bahay ‘yon. At saka, paano ba ‘yon, e, hindi na nga ako umuuwi, di ba? Araw-araw kaming nagtatrabaho. Siguro kasi, hindi na siya [Gerald] umuuwi dahil nagwo-work kami," tawa ulit ni Kim.

Sa kabila nito, tanggap ni Kim na hindi talaga mawawala ang mga ganitong klaseng intriga sa showbiz.

"Nahilamusan na po ako ng maraming ganoon," sabi niya. "Sa isang taon ko rito sa ABS-CBN, sa industriyang ito, hindi naman imposibleng walang darating na intrigang ganoon.

"Siyempre po, dati 'natutulog' ako sa condo ni Gerald. Na ako raw ang humahawak ng pera niya. Yung sabi na idine-deny ko raw kahit kami. Kaya sabi ko sa handler ko, parang hindi ko kaya ‘yon. Ano ang gagawin ko para masabi ko sa press na hindi talaga kami? So ‘yon, parang nasanay na lang ang puso ko, hindi na ako nasasaktan."

KIM'S INSECURITIES. Kim plays the role of a princess in Cindy-rella. Sa bakuran ba ng ABS-CBN, nararamdaman niya na isa siya sa maituturing na prinsesa ng network?

"Siguro po, kasi marami rin naman pong projects na ipinagkakatiwala sa akin ang ABS-CBN," prangkang sagot ng Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition winner. "Natutuwa rin naman po ako na kahit ganito lang ako, marami silang ibinibigay sa amin ni Gerald dahil natutuwa sila sa kakayahan namin. Kaya iniisip na lang po namin na mas pagbubutihan pa po talaga namin."

Nararamdaman ba niya na marami ang lihim na naiinggit sa kanya?

"Kahit ako rin naman, nai-insecure rin naman ako sa ibang artistang nakikita ko," pag-amin ni Kim.

Kanino naman siya nai-insecure?

"Ay, hindi na lang po ako magpapangalan," pag-iwas niya. "Pero dahil sa insecurities na ‘yon, mas nag-improve ang self-confidence ko na gagalingan ko pa. Siyempre, hindi naman po maiiwasan na dahil sa acting nila, sa status nila, nandoon yung ma-insecure rin po ako. Pero ganoon naman po talaga, pana-panahon naman pong talaga."

Dahil sa sinabi niya, naitanong ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Kim na hindi kaya magkaroon ng impression sa kanya na after all the projects that was given to her, hindi pa rin pala siya happy?

"Hindi, sobrang happy ako!" paglilinaw niya. "Sobrang hindi ko ine-expect na maraming ibibigay na projects ang ABS-CBN sa amin ni Gerald. Pero siyempre, tao rin naman ako at may insecurities din. Pero hindi siya inggit dahil yung insecurities na ‘yon, gusto kong isipin na positive naman."

Hindi rin ikinaila ni Kim na kahit paano ay naapektuhan at nalungkot siya nang may magsabi sa kanya na hindi naman siya kagandahan, pero sa kanya napupunta ang mga magagandnag projects ng ABS-CBN. It happened pa raw kasi sa mismong bayan niya sa Cebu City nang magkaroon sila ng presscon doon for the premiere of her movie with Gerald na I've Fallen For You.

"Sinabi nila sa akin na yun nga, hindi naman daw ako kagandahan at mas marami naman daw magaganda, pero konti lang ang projects nila. Sabi ko na lang, hindi naman po naidadaan ‘yan sa pagandahan. Nasa talento lang po at abilidad ng isang tao. Maganda ka nga, pero wala ka naman masyadong maibubuga or mailalabas. Kaya sabi ko, confident lang ako sa sarili ko," lahad ng chinitang actress.

Puwede bang sabihin na imbes na maging masaya para sa kanya ang mga kababayan niya, hindi pala lahat ay happy with her achievements now?

"Hindi naman," tanggi niya. "Siyempre ‘yon ang reaction nila sa ‘yo. Napapanood ka nila sa TV at hindi siya masyado nagagandahan sa ‘yo. Kaya ‘yon ang tinatanong nila na bakit sa dami ng mga chinita rito sa ABS-CBN, bakit ako raw ang may solo movie, bakit ako raw ang may soap opera.

"Siyempre, medyo nalungkot ako noong time na ‘yon. Bubbly-bubbly ako noong simula, biglang... Pero siyempre, opinion nila ‘yon, wala akong magagawa. Masaya naman kami with what happened sa premiere night kasi sobrang dami talaga ng tao. To think na Monday ‘yon, pero parang naging weekend po talaga sa dami ng dumating."

SNOOKY SERNA. Halatang nagulat si Kim nang marinig na may hindi magandang opinyon ang aktres na si Snooky Serna sa kanyang ka-loveteam na si Gerald. Hindi ito makapaniwala na sinabihan ni Snooky si Gerald ay "ham actor" at "plastik" sa radio program ni Mo Twister.

"Sinabi ni Snooky, talaga?" nanlaki ang mata nitong balik-tanong sa PEP. "Talaga? Kasi parang ang bait-bait ng mukha ni Snooky, tapos nagsasalita siya ng ganoon?"

Ano ang masasabi ni Kim sa opinyon ni Snooky sa kanyang ka-loveteam?

"Sabi ko nga kanina, may sariling opinion ang mga tao. Hindi mo sila mapipigilan kung ano ang iniisip nila, kung ano ang gusto nilang sabihin. Pero ang alam ko, bakit mo bibigyan ng mga projects si Gerald kung hindi siya magaling? Kung hindi siya magaling, yung isang project, yun na lang ‘yon, tapos na. Hindi na siya bibigyan ng iba pa. Bakit marami siyang tagahanga kung hindi siya magaling? At saka bakit nakayanan niya ang isang soap na nadadala ang mga tao at naiiyak pa, di ba?" depensa ni Kim kay Gerald.

Sinabi rin ni Kim na hindi plastik si Gerald.

"Ang bait-bait nga niya kahit sa hindi niya kakilala. Kahit nasa set kami, yung mga art department, tinutulungan niyang magbuhat. Pero siguro naiinggit lang sila kay Gerald," palagay ng dalaga.

Sa huli, sinabi ni Kim na kilala niya si Snooky bilang isang artista. Nakapanood na rin daw siya ng pelikula nito, tulad ng Blusang Itim, pero hindi pa niya ito nakikilala sa personal.
