After a log hiatus, actress Lovi Poe is back in harness.
This as as she is now doing a new movie and a new primetime soap.
The daughter of the late Movie King Fernando Poe Jr. had her last TV series, “Beautiful Strangers,” a year ago while her last movie, “Shake Rattle & Roll 15” was shown in 2014 yet, reported Mario Bautista in his column.
With her new shows, Lovi must be glad that her days of being idle are finally over.
Her new movie is Regal Entertainment’s “The Escort,” where she figures in a love triangle with Christopher de Leon and Derek Ramsay, directed by Enzo Williams of “Bonifacio: Unang Pangulo.”
According to the columnist, Lovi and the troop are shooting the film in Kandaya Resort in Cebu.
It was learned that Lovi figures in hot love scenes with Derek, with whom she is paired for the very first time.
Her new drama program is “Someone To Watch Over Me,” to be directed by Maryo de los Reyes, according to the columnist.
The tv soap will start airing in August to replace “Once Again.” Lovi is paired also for the first time with actor Tom Rodriguez.
According to the story, Lovi’s husband Tom contracts early onset Alzheimer’s disease and no longer remembers her, his wife, but his first girlfriend, played by Max Collins.
“I’m really so thankful that ang gaganda ng projects na napunta sa akin, both on the big and small screen,” Lovi is quoted by Mario Bautista as saying.
“Just the thought that they’re trusting me with very challenging roles and material is already satisfying and I promise to give my best to make these projects really worth viewing,” she said.
