Erich Gonzales’ going all-fresh in all-white soaked kamison in her first lead role on ABS-CBN’s remake of “Katorse.” This was actually a movie back in 1980’s, which starred Dina Bonnevie together with Gabby Concepcion and was directed by Joey Gosiengfiao. Though, it won’t be as sexy, fleshy and daring as the film, it’ll definitely be at par on how the story will be brought to life once more.
The story evolves around Nene, who faced life’s difficulty and challenge early on in her life. And that it begins when she’s 14 yrs old, innocent and carefree that she has fallen in-love and gave it all. Consequently, she gave birth to a child.
Erich deserves the break after all, she’s been the Grand Questor of Star Circle Quest back 2005. She’s done some teeny-tweetums roles then, but this one’s going to get her to the next level. She will actually be joined in this series with Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus winner Ejay Falcon and model-athlete Xian Lim.
ABS-CBN’s launching this TV series as Your Song Presents: Katorse. Erich may be 19 right now and may have not experienced the same fate with Nene, but she sure has the looks and the artistry to put the role in highlights. 😉
