Nadine Samonte playing lead role on My Lover, My Wife

AFTER PLAYING villain to Marian Rivera in “Endless Love”, Nadine Samonte is back doing a lead role in GMA-7’s new afternoon soon, “My Lover, My Wife”, that’s replacing “Koreana” starting Monday at 4 PM. “Dapat sana, sa ‘Magic Palayok’ ako kasama as the sister of Cherie Gil, pero heto, mas maganda ang role na binigay sa’kin in ‘My Lover, My Wife’ as April, ka-love triangle nina Maxene Magalona and Luis Alandy. Husband ko rito si Marco Alcaraz na si Maxene ang first girlfriend but nagkahiwalay sila at sa’kin napakasal si Marco na in love pa rin kay Maxene. Nagkaroon ng complications in the story at ang mukha ni Luis, napunta kay Marco.”

She’s turning 23 on March 2 and admits she had reconciled with businessman BF Emerson Chua. “Niligawan niya uli ako, e.”

Since the show is about characters exchanging faces, we ask each member of the cast whose face they’d want to possess if they’re given the chance. Here are their answers. Nadine – Katie Holmes. Maxene – Kate Beckinsdale. Luis – Johnny Depp. Marco – Brad Pitt. Princess Snell (who plays Nadine’s best friend) – Angelina Jolie. Rox Montealegre (Maxene’s best friend) – “Ang lola ko na siyang pinakamagandang babae for me.” Ernie Garcia (Maxene’s dad) – Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. Jace Flores (Luis’ friend) – Brad Pitt.
