I guess people are already waiting for a new Wattpad Series episode this week because they played replay episodes last week together with the Sea Games. As usual, TV5 is offering a new play and flavor to make the fans of this show a little more faithful in finding love in unexpected circumstances. You wouldn't believe this one because aside from the "love story", they're bringing in some magic.
It's been a while since we've seen Alex Castro on TV. Right now, he's doing Pasion De Amor in ABSCBN. His political career hasn't ended yet and he's planning to go for a higher post next election season. This time, he's in TV5 doing a Wattpad episode as a Genie. Yeap! You might see a little skin, that's given... I mean who wears those arabian looking outfits once they pop out of the lamp right? Oh... and that's another thing, they're not actually using a lamp for this episode. The title of the week's book is "Jenny and the Magic Arinola". So just imagine how funny it'll be when he comes out of that thing... they told us it's not just going to be the normal smoke on some instances LOL!
Isabelle De Leon on the other hand has been appearing in Wattpad Presents for a couple of times now. She's also starred in several shows in the Kapatid Network of which one is noted, remember Trenderas? Isabelle is a spirited singer, and she can do ballads, pop to rock without any hitch. Among her many accomplishments, she's considered to be one of the TV5's prized singers and actresses and I think she's even a triple threat. She's putting her singing prowess aside and wore poor girl's clothing on this episode as Jenny. She's about to beat those who have hurt those in the past with the genie's help, but what if she ended up in love with him too?
Isabelle says "Thanks for telling everyone that I like Daniel Matsunaga, anyway Alex and I already worked in the past and this episode was really easy to do because we didn't have any hesitations. It's just timing that I match the characters well, a little crazy, but I want to experience off beat roles and perhaps grow more as an actress. I hope I get to work with Daniel, James Reid or Paulo Avelino if there's a chance. I'll just go to buffets for now and eat my depression because we need to move on with our crushes. I see Jenny as a very persistent and passionate person, I think that's what makes us a little similar. I don't think I'm a princess of Wattpad, I think it's just the character. I'm thankful for TV5 for giving me opportunities like these where I could do different roles. I wish I could find my one true love too. I don't think I would have any problems portraying Jenny because he's so kind, he's well built but really we're friends. Any lady would fall in love with him easily I'm sure. I think the challenge is working with effects, I had to shoot several scenes with myself and it's super hard but we've been able to work with the best behind the scenes. Direk Soxy Topacio has been also very patient, as well as the production so I hope people would be able to appreciate Jenny and the Magic Arinola's story. Thank you to everyone for supporting us, this week is going to be really nice if you would get to watch out episode!"
Alex Castro says "When I worked with her in Maria Mercedes, she was still a kid and I've seen improvement in her acting. She's really got that Jenny vibe and I think she's going a lot of places, I even sing with her in our dressing room because we were having a good time. Before I went topless in the past, it was kind awkward because I came from public office, so I'm used to wearing formal stuff. I just had to do it here since I'm a genie. It's summer and it was the perfect time too. When I get to wish something for myself, I wish for good health for me and my family, a flourishing and happy love life, and perhaps for everybody else's wish to come true if that's possible. I'm doing a movie with Matt Evans and Ritz Azul soon. I'm not into politics right now but I'm helping the Mayor with his projects. They also ask for my suggestions so I'm doing that until now. I read the book first before doing this role, the character is easy to portray because that's what I thought of before doing the show. We're not that far off as far as age goes, so it's okay. This is the second time I've done a superhero/fantasy role and I think it's easy and comfortable because everybody helped me during the shoot. I hope people watch it for the story, for the magic, for the fun and not just for my body. I hope you tell your friends too!"
Wattpad Presents: Jenny and the Magic Arinola is going to be shown weekdays at 9PM on TV5!
