Louise De Los Reyes Added To The Cast Of 'Ang Probinsyano'. Will This Give Her Sluggish Career The Boost It Badly Needs?

LOUISE DE LOS REYES left GMA-7 last month and moved to Viva Artist Agency for management. Now, Viva has succeeded in quickly casting her in ABS-CBN’s number one show, “Ang Probinsyano” which stars Coco Martin in the title role, just like another Viva-managed talent, Yassi Pressman, who also started with the Kapuso network.

Louise’s last show on GMA-7 was “Magkaibang Mundo” with Juancho Trivino playing the role of a duwende or dwarf. In “Probinsyano”, she will play the role of a policewoman who gets to work with Coco, named PO3 Katrina Velasco, and she’s happy to be doing some action scenes in the hit TV action-drama.

Louise has reason to be ecstatic with her first show on ABS-CBN but will the exposure in “Probinsyano” help boost her career and make her fly high the way it did Yassi Pressman’s career? That remains to be seen. She’ll be appearing in “Probinsiyano” with Ejay Falcon and Dominic Roque, Kapamilya actors whose careers also won’t fully take off. It’s initially a guest role but if she’d click with audiences, then she can hope that her appearance in the show might be extended.

Louise can’t claim that GMA-7 neglected her because, in fairness to the Kapuso network, she was given several solo projects, starting with “Alakdana”, where she was paired with newcomers Alden Richards and Paulo Avelino. We all know now that Alden and Paulo have since become big leading men in their own right.

Louise was also given other primetime shows where she played the lead, like “One True Love”, “Mundo Mo’y Akin”, “Kambal Sirena”, but still true stardom seems elusive for her and the masa audience won’t just embrace her wholeheartedly. Let’s now see if the combination of Viva and ABS-CBN would provide the much needed magic for her career and make her the bigger star she aspires to be.
