Should the daughter suffer for the sins of her mother?
Beginning October 21, two successful women will be caught in the traps of infidelity leading to the immeasurable pain of an innocent daughter on GMA Network’s newest Afternoon Prime drama series, Magkaagaw.
Former on-screen rivals in “Bakekang” and Two of the industry’s sought after-actresses, Sheryl Cruz as Veron and Sunshine Dizon as Laura reunite in the most intriguing drama harped on vengeance that will heat up Kapuso viewers’ afternoon.
“I’m very happy because it’s been a while and maganda ‘yung team up namin ni Sunshine all the time. I also have to thank GMA for this project because it’s a different character – it’s my first time portraying a role of having an affair with a younger man,” Sheryl said.
“It’s a reunion project with Sheryl so that’s very exciting. We are also working with Direk Gil (Tejada Jr.), who is our director in Bakekang. What makes Magkaagaw unique is first time mata-tackle dito ‘yung character ni Laura na hindi sinasadyang maging kabit. She was blind-sided and put in a situation na wala siyang laban kasi hindi niya alam. She did not intentionally ruin a relationship,” Sunshine revealed.
The original drama also introduces the freshest team up of StarStruck 6 Ultimate Female Survivor Klea Pineda as Clarisse and Protégé Season 2 winner Jeric Gonzales as Jio in their most daring roles yet.
Joining the stellar cast of Magkaagaw are: Polo Ravales as Oliver, Laura’s suitor who is actually a con artist; Dion Ignacio as Zander, Clarisse’s officemate who secretly fancies her; Dennis Padilla as Mark, Jio’s comical uncle who acts as his moral booster; Lovely Abella as Suzi, Laura’s kikay but supportive best friend; Isay Alvarez as Fely, Laura’s doting mother; Patricia Tumulak as Gilda, Veron’s cousin who conspires with her against those who have wronged her; and Joanna Marie Tan as Sheila, Clarisse’s confidante who sticks up for her through ups and downs.
Magkaagaw also highlights the special participation of actor-politician Alfred Vargas as Mario, Veron’s unfaithful husband who pursued Laura and unknowingly made her a mistress.
Veron (Sheryl) has always been ambitious and career-driven. So when a big career opportunity abroad presented itself, she decides pursue it – despite her husband Mario’s (Alfred) pleas for her to stay. It wasn’t long before their marriage suffered amid the long distance. Back home, Mario met Laura (Sunshine), a loving and kind real estate sales agent whom he develops feelings for. In the end, Mario leaves Veron and chooses Laura.
Heartbroken and alone, Veron decides to focus on her career, but the pain she has felt from her husband’s betrayal remained. Twenty-five years later, she becomes very influential in the corporate world as the Country Director of McKella Philippines. Here, she meets her new employee Clarisse (Klea), an ambitious, determined, and strong young lady.
Veron then crosses paths with the dashing Jio (Jeric) and romance blossoms between the two, not knowing that he is the husband of her promising mentee Clarisse. Veron soon discovers that the latter is the daughter of Mario and his mistress Laura. She plots her revenge and makes Clarisse pay for the sins of her mother by stealing her husband. The legal wife Veron, in the name of pain and revenge, is now turning into the kind of person she hated the most, a desperate and unwanted mistress.
How far would Veron go to avenge her pain? What would happen to Clarisse when she finds out that she is a daughter of a mistress? And what would happen if Clarisse finds out that her husband has a mistress?
