MUST SEE: 6 actresses we'd love to see as Alden Richards' leading lady in My Love From The Star!

MUST SEE: 6 actresses we'd love to see as Alden Richards' leading lady in My Love From The Star!




Film and TV director Joyce Bernal has already confirmed Alden Richards will play the lead role in GMA-7's remake of the hit Koreanovela titled My Love From The Star.

We previously listed down several reasons why Alden is perfect as Matteo Do in the upcoming Kapuso remake:

However, the Kapuso network has yet to formally announce Alden's leading lady in the Philippine adaptation of the show.

In the original series, South Korean actress Jun Ji-hyun played the lead as Steffie Cheon, a Hallyu superstar who fell in love with her stoic, cold neighbor named Matteo (originally played by Kim Soo-hyun) who happens to be an alien trapped on Earth.
Steffie acted like a diva with an attitude problem and was sometimes put down by her showbiz colleagues. However, viewers will eventually discover her quirky, enthusiastic attitude to those dear to her as the show progressed.
We have listed down potential actreses we'd love to see as Steffie in the Kapuso remake (in no particular order):
1. Jennylyn Mercado. The Kapuso network's Romantic Comedy Queen is one of the top picks of some netizens on actresses to play Steffie in the Kapuso remake.

Jennylyn fits the character brief of the original Korean drama series very well, from her age to career status. With this in mind, we're pretty sure she can easily portray the character in the upcoming remake. The 28-year-old actress has also proved her skill set for doing romantic-comedy projects. Jennylyn has starred is several box-office rom-com hits in the past few years including English Only, Please (2014) and The Pre-nup (2015). Rumors has it that Jennylyn has already bagged the role!

2. Marian Rivera. Marian and Alden's tandem proved to be successful when they were paired in the Kapuso primetime show Carmela (2013).

Just like Jennylyn, Marian also fits the character background of the female lead in the series. Acting-wise, Marian already proved her versatility through numerous TV and movie projects so portraying the role of Steffie in the Kapuso remake will definitely be natural for her.

Marian is mostly commended for her serious drama roles for TV but the Kapuso network's Primetime Queen has also received positive feedback for her performance on TV and movie projects of lighter genres. Remember her quirky character Courtney in Desperadas (2008)? How about Marian's portrayal of the fierce lady executive named Evelyn in My Lady Boss (2013)?

3. Maine Mendoza. Maine is fairly new to the biz but the director of MLFTS Kapuso remake, Joyce Bernal, already expressed her desire to work with Eat Bulaga's phenomenal star and cast her as the main lead. 

Maine may be a little too young for the role but she can easily portray the blunt and enthusiastic character of Steffie. After all, Steffie's character is not that complex. The 21-year-old actress-TV host did fairly well on her first first few acting projects including My Bebe Love (2015) and Eat Bulaga's Holy Week Special. Her phenomenal tandem with Alden would also be beneficial for the series.

4. Sandara Park. If we want a legit Korean star to play the part, 2NE1's Sandara Park is the perfect actress for the part. Sandara, or Dara to most of her fans, is just as fun and enthusiastic as Steffie Cheon.

In 2005, the Star Circle Quest alumna was rumored to transfer to the Kapuso network in 2006 when she returned to the Philippines after a 6-month hiatus to train as an idol under YG Entertainment in South Korea. She appeared as a guest celebrity on GMA-7's comedy show Nuts Entertainment. Dara was also a cast member of the MMFF 2006 entry Super Noypi with Jennylyn Mercado and Katrina Halili. Her comeback didn't do well in the country which led her to focus on her activities in South Korea on August 2007.

In an interview, the K-pop idol has already mentioned that she's open to working for a TV or movie project in the Philippines. Dara said, 'Lagi kong gustong bumalik sa Pilipinas and then gumawa ng movie or kahit ano man. Pero yun nga, I was busy, so hindi ako makabalik. So, pag may chance, I would love to.'

Puwede mangarap, right?

5. Rhian Ramos. Rhian is no stranger when it comes to portraying characters in romantic-comedy projects. 

The 25-year-old actress has already done several projects in this genre including GMA Films' I.T.A.L.Y. (2008) and My Valentine Girls (2011). Her role as Isabel Reyes in My Kontrabida Girl (2012) is actually reminiscent of Steffie's character in My Love From The Star. Rhian also proved her acting abilities in Kapuso remakes including LaLola (2008) and Stairway to Heaven (2009).

6. Carla Abellana. Carla has already found her niche through romantic comedy projects. The Kapuso actress is comfortable doing rom-com as seen in the movies So It's You (2014), Somebody To Love (2014), and No Boyfriend Since Birth (2015). 

Carla's portrayal as Andrea Marquez in the romatic-comedy series Because Of You proves her capability to portray Steffie's character in My Love From The Star. 

Like Jennylyn and Marian, Carla also fits the character's background. In an interview with GMA Network, the 29-year-old actress said she doesn't mind doing another project with the same theme. “Siyempre, ang gaan gawin compared to drama [dahil] mas enjoy [at] mas relaxed. At least, hindi lang sa drama, may exposure din sa rom-com.”

Bago magcomment, dapat napanuod nyo ung My Love from another Star para alam niyo kung anong klaseng role ung gaganapan doon. I like Maine, pero I think acting skills ni Jennylyn Mercado babagay dun. Let's face it, madami pa pong kailangan pag aralan si Maine, kahit siya naman aminado. Minsan talaga, mga fans sobranf OA at Demanding.

The age of the female lead role is not the issue her. Maine has already proven that she can do justice to a role given to her. She showed superb acting skills in EB's Lenten presentation "God Gave Me You". Ms. Joyce Bernal is all praises for Maine's portrayal of her role. It is direk Bernal herself who said she wants Maine to play Stefi. Direc Bernal has seen something in Maine and that "something" is enough for the good director to trust her instincts. The director has made her choice. This is not being OA or demanding. The director has spoken. Its not the length of experience as an actress that is the concern here. A lot of actors/actresses spent so many workshops but still no development in their acting prowess. Tumanda na sa industriya, hindi talaga marunong umarte. As in waley talaga. I go for Maine Mendoza all the way.

I like Maine Mendoza as the main lead. First of all, it was the Aldubnation who made the request to have a remake of these drama series because we all think that Aldub can do very well for these roles. We imagined that they will make us more kilig if they are the one portraying the role. We wanted to see more interactions from Aldub, sweet moments and kilig scenes and this drama seems the perfect one to make that happen. I thought they will give us teleserye and movie. Hindi ba pwedeng ito na yun? I think it would be a very bad idea kung hindi si Maine ang makukuha at paghihiwalayin silang dalawa ngayon pa lng. Bakit? Mainit pa yung aldub ngayon so why not make the best use of it di’ba? I’m sure kaya naman ni Maine yung role and I know that they are very much aware kung anong mangyayari if any case na hindi talaga si Maine. Uulan ng disappointment all over the world because of Aldub fans…I just hope na sana magkatulad ang ABS and GMA sa pagmamanage when it comes to their love team. Sayang naman kasi eh. Well nasa kanila yun. It’s just my opinion anyway 

TRUE! Only MAINE MENDOZA can do the role as Steffi. There's so many reasons why the need to give to her the role.

Bago pa man yan magkaron ng pilipino version..Isa po yan sa pinagpilian ng mga aldub fans sa mga korean novela na gusto nila for ALDEN and MAINE. Nag uumpisa pa lang ALDUB naisip na agad nila yan. Sa pagkakatanda ko 4-5 na korean novela ang pinagpipilian at ISA AKO SA BUMOTO sa MY LOVE FROM THE STAR. Ofcourse si MAINE MENDOZA..wala ng iba. Kaya nga nila pinili yan dhil for ALDUB. Ganon lang kasimple.
Dito sa link na to makikita nyo.

U are obsolutely correct..im sure flopped na nmn tong tele ni alden if maine is not his ladinglady at katakotakot na bashers na nmn ang maencounter nla. The most important for this romantic comedy tele is chemistry between two couples.
