ABS-CBN continues its celebration of the 60 years of Pinoy Soap Opera with a new Primetime Bida offering, Imortal. The action-fantaserye marks the first team up of two of the hottest and most acclaimed stars of this generation, John Lloyd Cruz and Angel Locsin. Imortal follows the story of the centuries-old war between vampires and werewolves. The battle will see its culmination in the bloody clash of the anointed descendants from each tribe. But what if the vampire and the werewolf fall in love with one another? Will they defy destiny to follow the call of their hearts?
Angel plays Lia, the half human-half werewolf who is out to redeem the disparaged honor of her parents. Angel has done numerous action-fantaserye in the past, the last one being Lobo wherein her performance earned her a Best Actress nomination from the International Emmy Awards. The actress admitted feeling the pressure of making Imortal as successful as Lobo. “Sa kahit anong project na ginagawa natin may pressure. Pero hindi na dapat iniisip masyado ‘yun. Dapat ang nasa isip mo lang is kung paano mapapaganda ‘yung trabaho mo. Hindi na dapat nagiisip ng bad vibes. Dapat puro positive things na lang para positive vibes din ‘yung dala mo pagdating sa set. Kapag may pressure kasi mas lalo mong hindi nagagawa nang maayos ‘yung trabaho mo. Dapat hindi ka na lang nagpapaapekto sa pressure.”
On the other hand, John Lloyd makes his first venture in the action-fantaserye genre. The premiere actor-leading man is more known for his remarkable drama and romantic projects. Playing Mateo, John Lloyd said Imortal has everything that makes him feel excited as an actor. “Ngayon lang ako sasabak sa genre na may halong fantasy. In the past years ang mga ginagawa ko puro lang base sa real life. Drama, romantic comedy. Dito sa Imortal medyo nangangapa pa ako. Excited ako na bago siyang genre. Para akong inilagay sa ibang realidad. Kung dati ang tingin ko sa isang script o journey e ito lang, ngayon mas malawak na kasi may halo ng fantasy. Plus bagong leading lady pa so nakaka-excite talaga itong project na ‘to.”
Imortal also stars Maricar Reyes, Rico Blanco, Jomari Yllana, Jake Roxas, Vivian Velez, Johnny Revilla, and Jaime Fabregas. The pilot week was directed by Chito Roño, the genius behind box-office horror films Feng Shui and Sukob. Also at the helm of Imortal are directors Trina Dayrit (Tayong Dalawa) and Jerry Lopez Sineneng (Kahit Isang Saglit).
Catch the pilot episode of Imortal tonight, October 4, on Primetime Bida right after Noah.
