Young actress Rhian Ramos continues to stake her claim to the bigtime as she stars in the remake of a Koreanovela well-loved and remembered by the Filipino TV audience. رجيم الماء السريع The original Koreanovela Stairway to Heaven hit the airwaves not 3 years ago and was an instant hit with the afternoon TV-viewing public. Rhian now teams up with Dingdong Dantes, one of today’s most sought-after leading men, as they bring the story of Cholo and Jodi back to life.
Rhian Ramos topbills new Koreanovela remake
The plotline for the series is in itself Cinderella-esque, a story filled with elements of childhood love, cruel stepmothers and stepsisters, mistaken identities, and love triangles — sure to strike a note with us Pinoys. And with the beautiful Rhian Ramos playing one of the lead roles, what more could you ask for?
Rhian Ramos, or Rhian Denise Ramos Howell, has become a screen favorite and is starting to make her mark as one of the most beautiful faces her network can put in front of the camera. In fact, many would argue that she may have one of the prettiest faces in all of Philippine showbiz. Already a top endorser for numerous products, hers is a face that takes very easily to billboards and front covers of magazines. She came into the industry at age 15 and now she has worked her way into the hearts of many Filipinos.
A very grounded individual Rhian RamosIt is refreshing to see, from her numerous interviews and guestings, that there is a very grounded individual behind the pretty face. She is quick to deny any rift and tension between her and Marian Rivera, herself a top leading lady in the industry and girlfriend of Dantes. Many have been trying make an issue of the possibility that Dantes may fall for her as they work together. She has quickly put the issue to rest, and with her most disarming of smiles, allowed us to concentrate on this new project — which many are saying could make or break her career as a top actress.
(As an aside, I don’t really know why men like Dingdong Dantes are given license to “fall for” just about anyone. But hey, that’s just me.)
The story and the role could be very taxing for this young actress, as the plotline is filled with heavily emotional scenes and wet-your-hankie sessions. Ramos seems to agree with the effect this project might have on her career, but is enthusiastic about the challenge. After all, she probably wants to prove once and for all, to herself and to her critics, that she is a serious actress and that she has the talent to back up that claim.
Whatever the outcome, this “trial-by-fire” of sorts is not going to faze Rhian Ramos, that’s for sure. Judging from what is shown, jury may still be out on whether she’s leading lady material. But from all initial evidence — her TV castings to date — and all the issues linked with her, like that sex scandal thing, which she came through just fine — she probably will turn out just fine indeed. If she goes through this and handles herself well, her network will start counting themselves very lucky to have her on board.
Stariway to Heaven is set to premiere on September 14, 2009, primetime on GMA Network.
