Beginning today, three generations of women take on a quest to pursue their dreams on GMA Network’s much-awaited TV adaptation of the 1989 award-winning blockbuster movie by Regal Films, Bilangin ang Bituin sa Langit.
The drama series is top-billed by the one and only Superstar Nora Aunor as Mercedes “Cedes” dela Cruz. Playing equally important roles are highly-acclaimed actress Mylene Dizon as Magnolia “Nolie” dela Cruz and Kapuso Breakout Star Kyline Alcantara as Maggie dela Cruz.
Nora shares her excitement to be starring in a remake of her own award-winning film, “Masaya ako na magkakaroon ng remake ‘yung aming pelikula noon. Excited din ako dahil ang gagaling ng mga artista na makakasama ko dito.”
Mylene reveals that she is honored to be working with the legendary actress, “It’s really a dream come true. I think it’s every actress’ dream to be able to work with Ms. Nora Aunor. I feel very privileged and lucky to be working with her for this project.”
On the other hand, Kyline feels ecstatic to be part of such stellar cast, “Until now, hindi talaga nagsi-sink in sa akin na I’m part of this huge teleserye. I can’t believe na makakatrabaho ko sila knowing na nagsisimula pa lang ako sa industriya. I feel really honored and at the same time pressured.”
Completing the star-studded cast are: Zoren Legaspi, Gabby Eigenmann, Ina Feleo, Yasser Marta, Divina Valencia, Candy Pangilinan, and Isabel Rivas.
Bilangin ang Bituin sa Langit features the special participation of Ricky Davao as Damian, calm and charitable husband of Cedes who serves as the leader of small-time grape farmers in their town and Dante Rivero as Ramon, Martina’s successful husband who owns a liquor business.
The Dela Cruz is a humble family of grape farmers. Despite struggling to make ends meet, married couple Cedes (Nora) and Damian (Ricky) are warmly respected by their grape farm community. They supply grapes to notorious liquor magnates Martina (Isabel) and Ramon (Dante). Nolie (Mylene), the diligent daughter of Cedes and Damian, is secretly in a relationship with the son of Martina and Ramon, Anselmo (Zoren) who is only pursuing the former for his selfish desires.
When greed consumes Martina, she orders the plantation to be burned down since the farmers who oppose selling their land. This unfortunate incident has led to the death of Damian. Cedes goes berserk and accidentally kills Ramon. Making matters worse, Nolie finds out that she is also carrying Anselmo’s child - Maggie (Kyline). Several years passed, their stars will once again align when Maggie meets Jun (Yasser), the son of Anselmo with Margaux (Ina), and falls in love with him. Meanwhile, Cedes is set to avenge the death of Damian and their stolen land with her newfound identity alongside Nolie who will likewise give Anselmo a taste of his own medicine.
Bilangin ang Bituin sa Langit is directed by Laurice Guillen.
