Elmo Magalona and Janine Gutierrez stars in ‘Villa Quintana’ starts on Monday!

This November, GMA Network presents Villa Quintana, a heartwarming love story that became a phenomenal hit series in the mid-90s. Mothers today are definitely sentimental when they reminisce the love between Isagani and Lynette, originally portrayed by Keempee de Leon and Donna Cruz.

Elmo-Janine

Kapuso teen heartthrob Elmo Magalona and promising Kapuso actress Janine Gutierrez reprise the roles, driving strong anticipation among fans of the original series, reaffirming that their first team-up on-screen is one of this year’s most exciting casting coups.

As they breathe life into the characters of Isagani Samonte and Lynette Quintana, they retell a great love story in a way that best represents how sweet young love can be. Women, young and old, would definitely fall in love once again with Villa Quintana’s triumphant celebration of love amidst challenges.

Isagani (Elmo) is the lovechild of Robert and Lumeng but will grow up knowing his father is Felix. He lives a simple life in the farm together with his parents. He eventually falls and fights for his love for Lynette. Meanwhile, Lynette (Janine) will be mistaken by Don Manolo as the child of Robert and Lumeng. Thus she grows up living a very comfortable and affluent life. She requites Isagani’s affection. And their love for each other will once again become television’s finest romantic tale.

Villa Quintana is not only an acting piece for the new team up of Elmo and Janine but also the show’s love triangle of bankable stars: Raymart Santiago, Sunshine Dizon and Paolo Contis.

Raymart plays the role of Felix Samonte. He stood as the father of Isagani when Robert abandoned Lumeng and because he always loved Lumeng, he married her to save her from disgrace. He is a kind, understanding and patient person but he also fights for what he believes in. Paolo portrays the role of Robert Quintana, the only son of Don Manolo and the real father of Isagani. He falls in love with Lumeng but Don Manolo is against it because Lumeng is not from a prominent and landed family.

Lumeng Samonte, the mother of Isagani is portrayed by Sunshine. Robert was her first love but she eventually married Felix. She is smart, fearless and has a strong and positive outlook in life. She focuses on possibilities rather than life’s challenges and will stand up and fight for her family and for what they rightfully deserve.

Villa Quintana is inspiring as it fulfills every woman’s aspiration for a good family life, characterized by unwavering love for each and every member. The show also upholds every viewer’s pursuit of love and self-significance that affluence nor poverty could ever scorn.

The series is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, their family’s tension against the brewing romance that’s driven by past hurts and offenses. Lumeng is not in favor of the relationship because of how the Quintanas treated her when she was younger. But Isagani will continue to fight for his love for Lynette, despite his mother’s objections and while the Quintanas betroth Lynette to a young man who also comes from a wealthy and influential clan. Being educated abroad, Lynette affirms her independence and upholds her right to choose the man she loves, which results to a bitter struggle with her family, particularly her grandfather Don Manolo who is against any type of modernization.

Nothing can separate Isagani and Lynette, not even the manipulative pressures from the Quintanas.

Everything changes when Lumeng discovers a secret of the Quintanas that overturns odds, a detail from the past that affects the fate of the young couple’s love for each other.

Will the revelation affect the love between Isagani and Lynette? Or will their love for each other prevail? How will their families accept the truth?

Under the direction of Ms. Gina Alajar, the remake of the 90’s hit series Villa Quintana will not only tackle love but also family values, relationships and principles worth fighting for.

The show also stars Roy Alvarez as Don Manolo Quintana, Maricar De Mesa as Stella, Tanya Garcia as Amparing, Kyla as Ruby, Marky Lopez as Chito, Juancho Trivino as Jason and Rita de Guzman as Patrice.

The creative team is composed of Creative Director Jun Lana; Afternoon Prime Head Roy Iglesias; Creative Consultant Des Garbes Severino; Concept Creator and Headwriter RJ Nuevas; Writers Leilani Chavez and Marlon Miguel; and Brainstormers Gilda Olvidado, Ma. Christina Velasco, Borgy Danao and Jake Somera.

Villa Quintana, created by the GMA Drama Group, is supervised by the Executive In-charge of Production Lilybeth G. Rasonable; VP for Drama Redgie Acuña Magno, AVP for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy, and Program Manager Camille D. Hermoso.

Villa Quintana premieres November 4 on GMA Afternoon Prime.

‘Just One Summer’ movie preview and cast and characters revealed!

From the same production company and director of hit romantic movies ‘Let The Love Begin’ and ‘One True Love’ comes another love story, starring one of the country’s biggest loveteams - Elmo Magalona and Julie Anne San Jose (otherwise known as JuliElmo) – in the movie that will make you fall in love all over again titled “Just One Summer.”

Synopsis:

The movie is all about a rich, rebellious boy spends the summer with his father who he has considered long dead and his mistress while waiting for the annulment of his father and his mother’s marriage. During his stay with his father during the summer, he meets a poor girl who is his childhood friend and is a scholar of whom her family is depending on however, she is holding in a secret with regards to the true state of her scholarship. The two meet and comfort each other amidst their problems and they fall for each other as time goes on and as they get to
know each other.

Daniel Cuaresma, Jr is a rich boy fresh from highschool. Dahil only son ng isang doktorang may-ari ng isang ospital sa Maynila, pangarap din niyang maging doktor. And he is close to reaching this dream, dahil natanggap siya sa isang med school abroad for college. Handa na ang lahat – his passport, visa, pati tutuluyan sa states. Isa na lang ang problema – ang parental consent. Wala pa kasing pirma ang daddy niya.

His dad has only one condition for Daniel before he signs – he wants his son to spend summer with him. Simple lang kung tutuusin. But not for Daniel. He hates his dad. He has hated him eversince he left their family and went back to the province to take care of his farm. Kaya naman spending time with his dad, during his last summer in the country, is the last thing on his mind. Pero wala siyang magawa. Kailangan niya ang pirma ng ama.

Si Beto naman, ang probinsyanang kababata ni Nyel, ay magka-college na rin. Unlike Nyel, her family doesn’t have all the finances dahil hindi naman sila mayaman. Kaya naman tuwang-tuwa ang tatay niyang si Berting nang malamang magiging scholar ito sa college, dahil makakabawas ng malaki sa gastusin. Ang problema – hindi talaga natanggap sa scholarship si Beto. At hindi niya alam kung paano sasabihin sa ama, kaya naman maghahanap siya ng paraan para makapag-ipon ng pang-tuition on her own. Dahil dito, lalapit siya kay Sir Dan, Sr, para bigyan siya ng trabaho sa farm. Kahit anong trabaho, willing siya, dahil laki naman siya sa farm.

Pero magugulat na lang si Beto dahil ang ibibigay sa kanyang trabaho ni Sir Dan ay ang bantayan ang anak nitong si Nyel, Jr. habang nasa probinsya. At first, matutuwa pa siya dahil long-time crush niya talaga ang kababatang ngayon lang ulit umuwi. Pero habang tumatagal, mahihirapan si Beto dahil masama ang ugali ni Nyel—not because he is really bad, but because he’s acting up, dahil nga galit siya sa ama. Mas ikakabwisit din ng lalaki na pinapabantayan pa siya kay Beto.

Dahil sa constant clash nilang dalawa, pareho silang malalayo sa mga goals nila. Halos ayaw na ni Beto makasama si Nyel. Pero kailangan niya ang trabaho para magkaron ng pang-tuition. Si Nyel naman, dahil sa mga nagagawa kay Beto, ay mapapagalitan pa ni Sir Dan, kaya lalong mapapatagal ang pagpirma sa consent.

But somewhere along the way, magbabago ang lahat. Magkakasundo sina Beto at Nyel…Pero kung kelan naman sila magiging okay, lalabas ang ibang problema. Malalaman ni Berting ang tungkol sa pagsisinungaling ni Beto. Si Nyel naman, magkakaroon ng confrontation with his father, and he soon discovers marami pa siyang hindi alam tungkol sa paghihiwalay ng mga magulang niya.

With everything that’s going on, will this summer still have a happy ending? This is the story of a wounded, teenage boy forced to spend time with the father he so hates…

A father who wants to reconnect with a son who has shut him out of his life…

And a clueless, provincial lass who will make it all a bit easier simply by being inlove and by being loved by the boy…

Their lives changed in…Just One Summer.

Character Description:

Daniel Cuaresma Jr. or Dani/Nyel (Elmo Magalona) – Rich and rebellious. Unhappy, but covers it up by keeping up a cool front. Galing probinsya pero sa Manila na nagbinata. Only child, kaya may pagka-spoiled. Minor but he smokes behind parent’s back, drinks with friends, and had been with a lot of girls. Mad at both parents dahil naghiwalay ang mga ito. Less friction lang with his mom dahil bukod sa dito siya lumaki, less strict din ito kesa sa dad niya. Tanggap na sa isang college abroad, making this summer his last one in the country. Has to endure this summer with his dad, dahil ito ang requirement para pumirma ito sa parental consent na kelangan ng school niya. Called Dan by his manila friends, called Nyel by the province people

Beto (Julie Anne San Jose) – A simple, provincial lass who recently graduated from high school. – matalino, mabait, ,matulungin… basically a good and obedient daughter. – only daughter, raised by her strict but loving dad and her cool lola. May pagka-idealistic when it comes to love. Ultimate wish niya mahanap ang isang tao na willing maghintay sa kanya hanggang ready na siya. Her summers are usually spent helping her father at the farm, and spending time teaching/playing for children at the church choir. Her usual summer is changed when her long-time crush, Nyel, comes home again ater a long time. Achiever naman, pero minsan, pakiramdam niya she is pressured to measure up to her dead mom.

Daniel Cuaresma Jr. (Joel Torre) – Dad of Daniel, Jr (Nyel) and owner of the DC farms – a fair and generous boss; loved, respected and highly regarded by the farm people because he loves and cares for them sincerely as well. Gustong-gusto niyang makasama ang anak bago ito umalis dahil gusto niyang ibalik ang dating closeness nila. Pakiramdam din niya, once na mag-states na si Nyel, lalo lang itong malalayo sa kanya. Hindi niya inakala na ganun pala kalaki ang galit sa kanya ng anak, kaya mahihirapan din siya sa pagsasama nila ni Nyel.

Irene Luna-Cuaresma (Alice Dixon) – Doktora na nanay ni Daniel, Jr. Career-oriented at successful sa field na pinili niya; hinahangaan ng mga kasamahan sa profession. Busy ang schedule dahil sa tawag ng trabaho, kaya halos hindi rin siya ang nagpalaki kay Nyel kundi ang yaya sa bahay. Ganunpaman, she loves her son so much even if she’s not touchy or ver vocal about it. Dahil goal oriented, papayag siya sa kagustuhan ni Dan, Sr na mag-summer si Nyel sa probinsya. In her mind, kung yun ang kailangan para makuha ang pirma para sa consent ni Nyel at sa annulment, then so be it. Gagawin ang dapat gawin para makuha ang resultang gustong makuha. Hindi rin niya alam that this summer would change the way she had always looked at her separation with Daniel.

Juliet (Cherry Pie Picache) – Ang kinakasama ngayon ni Daniel, Sr. Simple lang at laking probinsya din, very loving at understanding kay Sir Dan. Kakilala niya si Irene from years back, dahil sa probinsya rin nag-highschool si Irene bago ito naging successful sa Maynila. Ang totoo, hinahangaan niya si Irene kahit dati pa dahil nga maganda ito, matalino, popular. Para na rin siyang fan ng legal na asawa ni Daniel, Sr. Ninang din siya ni Beto. Hangga’t maari at hangga’t kaya niya, tutulungan niya sina Nyel at Dan na magkaayos, but she can only do so much dahil hindi naman siya totoong parte ng pamilya.

Berting (Buboy Garovillo) – Single dad to Beto. Magsasaka sa farm ni Daniel, Sr. Maaga niyang nabuntis ang asawa kaya pareho silang hindi nakapag-college. Namatay sa panganganak ang kanyang asawa, kaya sila na lang ni Beto ang naiwan. At si Lola Meding, ang nanay ng kanyang asawa. Achiever ang asawa niya noon, at malayo sana ang mararating kung hindi lang namatay kaagad. Ito ang dahilan kung bakit todo bantay siya sa anak na si Beto dahil ayaw niyang maulit kay Beto ang nangyari sa asawa niya. Gusto niyang matupad ni Beto ang mga pangarap niya. Close kay Beto at very vocal sa pagmamahal niya dito. Kaya naman magiging masakit sa kanya ang pagsisinungaling ni Beto tungkol sa scholarship.

Lola Meding (Gloria Romero) – Lola ni Beto; katuwang ni Berting sa pagpapalaki kay Beto. Siya ang tumatayong mother figure sa bahay nina Berting. Sa kanya nakukwento ni Beto ang mga bagay na hindi masabi sa ama, lalo na pag tungkol sa pag-ibig. Hindi siya kunsintidor, pero naiintindihan niya si Beto. Lalo pa at pinagdaanan na niya ito noon nung ma-inlove ang anak niya kay Berting. Kaya naman todo alalay din siya sa apo.

Produced by GMA Films and under the direction of Mac Alejandre, “Just One Summer,” which also starsBenedict Campos, Ken Chan, Lexi Fernandez, Steven Silva, Amazing Betong, Mae Bautista, Sef Cadayona and Sheena Halili, opens in theaters nationwide on August 15, 2012.

Julie Ann San Jose is GMA-7′s Rising Star!

The star of 18-year old singer-actress Julie Ann San Jose brightens more as her career keeps breaking through some unconquered territories.

This July 25, as her movie with Elmo Magalona Just One Summer” opens to theaters that should signal another highlight for the success of their love team that has captured the fascination of their fans. The film, directed by Mac Alejandre, takes their tandem a notch higher than what it has already achieved. Their TV series “Together Forever” which airs on Sundays after Party Pilipinas, has gotten reviews from both critics and fans.

Julie Ann, one of GMAAC’s biggest draws, appears as Bertina/Beto in the much awaited big screen project which has for supporting acts the likes of veteran actress Gloria Romero and Sheena Halili. By now her role as Toyang Escueta is already a click figure for her fans and admirers.

This year is by far a harvest time for Julie Ann, a former member of young vocal group Sugarpop who has gone successfully solo, as she has gotten a number of awards and citations from leading award-giving bodies which laud the young achievers. Tatt Awards gave her the People’s Choice Award and the Trending Personality title.

She shares with Elmo the Most Stylish Loveteam honor given at the first Candy Style Awards as their pair was also nominated at the recent Yahoo OMG Awards.

Arguably the most active of teleserye theme singers today, this pop star from Novaliches, Q.C. has given voice to the main themes for Broken Vow and Lie To Me, both instant hits among televiewers. Last year he sang the songs for Sisid and Dwarfina.

Having showcased herself well in the Tween Academy movie and when she appeared in My Kontrabida Girl via a cameo role, moviegoers have noticed her as a genuine acting talent with angelic face and voice to boot. She is finishing an upcoming film called Elias.

Julie Anne San Jose and Elmo Magalona Record a Francis M Composition!

Together Forever lead stars Julie Anne San Jose and Elmo Magalona recorded earlier today their duet version of “Girl Be Mine,” which is a Francis Magalona composition.

The song will be used as one of the soundtracks of their movie “Just One Summer,” which will hit nationwide theaters beginning August 15.

During the recording session, Elmo and Julie Anne collaborated on how they could give a new “flavor” to the song. Julie Anne helped Elmo out on some tricky second voices, while Elmo guided Julie Anne on some of the melodies since he’s more familiar with his dad’s song.

After months of waiting, the hugely followed love team of Julie Anne and Elmo — endearingly called by their fans as JuliElmo — will finally hit the big screen next month. The two are excited to see the final outcome of their film which took almost six months to complete. They still have several scenes to shoot in the following days, though, including a very “costly” helicopter scene which will be shot in Subic.

“Just One Summer” is directed by Amaya director Mac Alejandre and is produced and distributed by GMA Films.

Elmo Magalona comes out from his fathers shadow!

Elmo Magalona is not just Francis Magalona’s son.

Having released his first single, Three Stars and a Sun late last year, the 18-year-old is starting to make a name for himself in the music industry, where his late, great father used to hold court.

But this early in his career, he knows that he wants to be a total entertainer.

A commercial model and a regular on GMA 7’s variety show Party Pilipinas, Elmo also has an upcoming film, Just One Summer, with fellow teen star Julie Anne San Jose.

“I really can’t decide which one I want to be known for because acting, hosting, dancing and modeling are all packaged under entertainment. And an entertainer is what I want to be,” Elmo says.

There’s no denying, however, that rap music is in his blood. “Of course, there is pressure (being the son of the Philippines’ master rapper), but that only makes me want to work harder and do better with my work,” he says.

With all the things going on in his career, Elmo recently added yet another feather to his cap — that of being the brand ambassador for a company with a strong Filipino heritage, Magnolia Ice Cream.

“It was very much unexpected,” he says about getting the deal to endorse the ice cream brand.

“Being part of a family that loves sweets, I really enjoyed Magnolia Ice Cream growing up. My parents would always buy a tub everytime there was a birthday or any type of celebration in the house,” he relates.

Elmo will endorse two new products under the Magnolia Ice Cream Frozen Delights line: Fizz Rootbeer Float, the first-ever rootbeer-flavored popsicle with vanilla ice cream filling, and Cookie Monster, which has four layers of chocolate.

“We saw early on that Elmo’s image fit our new products,” says Magnolia Ice Cream Group product manager Jen Chang. “Like Elmo, the new flavors are unique, young, fresh and very exciting.”

Exciting aptly describes Elmo’s future prospects, especially if one considers his role in Just One Summer, his first lead role. In the movie, he plays Neil, a misunderstood teen who goes through an emotional rollercoaster ride.

While he admits it was very challenging, he is now pining for more out-of-the-box roles.

“I would love to play the role of a young father,” he concludes. “I believe this will improve my acting skills.”
