Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal reunited in Machete

AS ‘KOREANA’ ends, Kris Bernal got the welcome news that she’ll be added to the cast of “Machete” to reunite her with ka-love team Aljur Abrenica. She will be playing the role of a rich heiress who’s being forced marry someone she doesn’t love so she runs away and finds Machete lying unconscious on the beach after he had a fight with the warrior Karum (Ryan Eigenmann) who was also resurrected from the past. “Masaya kong makasama uli si Kris and I’m sure matutuwa ang fans ng love team naming na mapanood kami uli ng magkasama sa ‘Machete,’” says Aljur.

Kris’ inclusion in the show happens at the time that Aljur as Machete has realized that Rosella (Bela Padilla) and his past love, Aginaya, are one. But the “Machete” taping last Monday was packed up when Ryza Cenon, who plays Marla, had food poisoning after she ate something while vacationing in Thailand that didn’t agree with her tummy. She was told to rest for a week. Meantime, Karen de los Reyes, who plays a villain role in the show, made a scene in the taping last week. She asked permission to leave the set but the staff requested her to return as she has to finish her remaining sequences. She did come back but made a scene and kept on swearing, so it was decided that the role she plays just be killed to get rid of her. “Pasaway siya,” says one staffer.
