Kapamilya primetime princess Ella Cruz recently revealed that due to insistent public demand, her former onscreen partner Francis Magundayao will be joining the cast of their top-rating Primetime Bida fantaserye “Aryana.” Francis gained instant popularity when he charmed primetime viewers as the young Piolo Pascual in the drama series “Dahil sa Pag-ibig,” while Ella portrayed the young Cristine Reyes.
“I was very excited when they told me that Francis will be part of the story,” Ella said. “A lot of fans were requesting to include him in ‘Aryana’ because they really missed our love team in ‘Dahil sa Pag-ibig.”
The primetime tween mermaid added that she was very impressed with Francis’ talent in acting when they were working together in the said drama series. “He is really good in acting. He can make TV viewers cry and fall in love at the same time,” Ella shared.
When asked who among Francis, Dom Roque, and Paul Salas is closest to her in real life, Ella said that her three leading men are all her friends. “I am close to the three of them. Dom is the one who always gives me advice, while Francis and Paul are my comic buddies. We are already like a barkada because we always bond during tapings,” said Ella.
Meanwhile, continue to follow “Aryana’s” magical ‘tail’ especially now that a new boy (Francis) is going to enter in her life. Who is he? What will be his role in Aryana’s life? How will he affect Aryana’s friendship with Marlon (Paul) and Hubert (Dom)?
