Kapuso star Dennis Trillo clears speculations saying that his upcoming Kapuso series Legal Wives will not be a story of mistresses.
He said that the series is more than what some people perceive as a typical mistress drama series.
Trillo’s virtual media conference for Legal Wives on July 19 explained that the series is about family and will highlight how each artist will portray their character.
“Hindi ito isang kabit-serye. Isa itong family drama at mas importante dito yung hindi kung kanino mapupunta kung sino.
“Ang importante dito, kung papaano na-handle yung karakter, yung ganoong klaseng sitwasyon, at kung papaano niya mapapanatili na buo yung kanyang pamilya at walang nag-aaway-away,” he said.
Aside from Trillo, the series will also star Bianca Umali, Andrea Torres, and Alice Dixson.
The story of the series will revolve around Ismael (Trillo), a Maranao native Muslim who will fall in love and will eventually marry his three wives named Amirah (Dixson), Diane (Torres), and Farrah (Umali).
Trillo said that he prepared for his role by studying the correct way of pronouncing some of the terms in the series.
“May mga consultant na nakagabay sa amin sa set whenever kailangan namin i-consult sa kanila kung papaano bigkasin.
“Hindi siya basta ordinaryong terms, meron siyang tono, meron siyang tamang enunciation at syllabication na kailangang sundin at kailangang magmukhang tama lahat habang binibigkas namin,” he said.
He also said that he would rehearse and memorize his lines even a night before the shoot to ensure that he could give a good delivery.
“Para kaming nag-aaral. Gabi-gabi, mine-memorize namin yung script.
“Ako, ginagawa ko bago matulog, kapag alam kong meron akong mahahabang lecture, mahahabang lines, sa gabi pa lang binabasa ko na [ang script].
“Paggising ko sa umaga, binabasa ko uli para hindi ko siya makakalimutan at ma-absorb ko lahat ng information at ikuwento sa iba,” he said.
The series will premiere its pilot telecast on Monday, July 26.
Previously, Legal Wives postponed its supposed airing date due to various reasons involving the COVID-19 pandemic.
