In the latest incarnation, Barbie Forteza, Joyce Ching and Krystal Reyes will breathe life into the roles that catapulted the careers of Antoinette Taus, Sunshine Dizon and Kim delos Santos.

Barbie showed her acting prowess when she reprised the role of the young Jodi in Stairway to Heaven. She topbilled such Kapuso programs as First Love, Tween Hearts,  Pilyang Kerubin, Nita Negrita, Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin, Luna Blanca Book 2 and Paroa: Ang Kwento ni Mariposa.

Joyce marked her break in showbiz when she portrayed the role of the young Shirley in Endless Love. Recently, she earned praises as she gave a notable drama performance in the Pakawalang Anghel: The Michelle Reyes Story episode of GMA 7’s Magpakailanman.

Krystal, a formidable young actress, gained the respect of public when she made her remarkable stint in Bakekang as Kristal. She continued her way to the drama genre as she stepped on her first starring role in Princess Charming and played the lead role in the TV remake of Mga Mata ni Anghelita. Her recent project was the afternoon series Hindi Ka Na Mag-iisa where she acted opposite Jennylyn Mercado.

Adding romantic and love angles in the series are Derrick Monasterio, Julian Trono and Hiro Peralta.

Derrick started his career on GMA’s Tween Hearts, and has been active in showbiz as he joined several Kapuso shows. In 2010, he received the Best Male New TV Personality award from the PMPC Star Awards for Television.

Julian, on the other hand, grew up hosting Tropang Potchi and he proved that he has a flair for dancing when he joined the now-defunct Party Pilipinas. While Hiro made his stint in Tween Hearts and also appeared in several GMA shows like Iglot, Biritera and Cielo de Angelina.

In the story of Anna Karenina, Donya Carmela will post a P10-M reward for whoever finds her granddaughter, Anna Karenina Monteclaro. Hundreds of 15-year-old girls will claim the identity of Anna Karenina but most of them are fake; except for the three girls who showed authentic birth certificates and other proofs — all three girls bear the same name yet they have different motives.

Up to what extent are Anna, Karen and Nina willing to prove who the real Anna Karenina is? Could money, change and love bring them immeasurable happiness?

Also in the cast are Sandy Andolong, Yul Servo, Neil Ryan Sese, Juan Rodrigo, Valerie Concepcion, Allan Paule, Ana Roces, Maybelyn dela Cruz, Maureen Larrazabal, Alicia Mayer, Kathleen Hermosa, Joanna Marie Tan and with the special participation of Yasmien Kurdi as Maggie Monteclaro, mother of Anna Karenina.
