Bianca Manalo Happy To Be Dominic Ochoa's Leading Lady In The Action-Fantaserye 'My Super D'

BIANCA MANALO is very happy that right after “On the Wings of Love”, she is given a follow up show right away, “My Super D”, where she plays the wife of title roler Dominic Ochoa. She couldn’t help but shed copious tears when the photo of her with her dad was shown on the big screen during the presscon of “My Super D”.

“My dad passed last year and bale one year na siyang wala this April 29. It was also his birthday noong April 11 kaya napaiyak ako sa lungkot when I remembered him,” she says. “Siya talaga ang nag-push sa’min ng elder sister kong si Katherine to be a beauty queen. This year, kasali naman yung youngest sister naming si Nicole Marie at sayang, wala na si daddy.”

“My Super D” had a preview of its pilot week at Dolphy Theatre last Friday and it’s an action fantasy that the whole family will enjoy. Richard Yap plays a guest role as the original Super D, a flying superhero who comes from another planet and gets his power from a blue diamond. But a crime lord, Ronaldo Valdez, knows his secret and uses Lara Quigaman to topple him down. Richard falls in love with Lara without knowing she is just being used by Ronaldo to kill him, and Ronaldo succeeds in his evil deed.

Super D is the idol of the boy Dodong, the son of Sylvia Sanchez and Ronnie Lazaro. Dodong grows up to be Dominic Ochoa, a well intentioned and good hearted man who’s always willing to help others. He has two childhood friends, Nicole and Tony, who grow up to be Bianca Manalo and Marvin Agustin. Bianca chooses Dominic over Marvin and they have a son (Marco Masa), but Dominic gets involved in an accident in the construction site he works for.

Instead of helping him, Marvin asks his lawyer to pin down Dominic in court and he is sentenced to jail. While he’s in prison, Marvin succeeds to steal Bianca away from him. But later, with the help of Noni Buencamino, a graphic artist who’s the best friend of the original Super D, Dominic succeeds in finding the magical blue diamond and he himself becomes the new Super D!

Dominic Ochoa gives his best to his role as Dodong/Super D, which is his biggest break ever as it’s his first lead role. He will really get your sympathy as the perennial do-gooder who is such a devoted father to his son. Ronaldo Valdez chews the scenery as his nemesis who turns out to be also an alien from another planet. “Super D” starts airing tonight replacing Robin Padilla’s short-lived show, “Game ng Bayan”.
