Beautiful Strangers' Topbilled By Heart Evangelista & Lovi Poe Replaces 'Let The Love Begin' On August 10

GMA-7'S NEW soap, "Beautiful Strangers", will be replacing "Let the Love Begin" starting August 10. This has a powerhouse cast led by Christopher de Leon as Ronaldo, a rich realtor who's a womanizer, and Dina Bonnevie as Alejandra, Ronaldo's wife who's a powerful woman who cleans up the dirt her husband leaves behind.

Heart Evangelista plays Kristine, a beautiful plastic surgeon who is Ronaldo's daughter from a previous relationship with Ayen Laurel. Lovi Poe is Joyce, a simple woman whose life is ruined when Ronaldo rapes her while she's already pregnant with the child of her boyfriend, Rocco Nacino as Noel, a mechanic who is crushed when he learns that Joyce has died. He then gravitates towards Kristine. But Joyce is not really dead but gets resurrected as Lea, who'll take revenge on the people who wronged her.

Also in the cast are Benjamin Alves as Lawrence, the son of Ronaldo and Alejandra who falls for the new Lovi; Emilio Garcia as Rocco's dad, Lovely Rivero and Pen Medina as Lovi's parents; Divina Valencia as the mother of Alejandra; Kier Legaspi as Rigor, Ronaldo's henchman; Gab de Leon as Rex, the friend of Rocco; Djanin Cruz as Hannah, the girlfriend of Benjamin who he later ignores; Renz Valerio as Jason, Lovi's brother; Diane Medina as Monica, best friend of Heart; and Mariel Pamintuan as Heart's supportive cousin. This is directed by Albert Langitan.
