More than Words on GMA Telebabad

After the success of Villa Quintana, Janine Gutierrez and Elmo Magalona will once again captivate the hearts of GMA Telebabad's audience. More than words is set to premiere on Nov. 17, Monday right after 24 Oras.

More than words is about the story of Ikay, a girl taunted as weirdo at school because of her unique looks and constant day dreaming and spacing out more of the time. She finds solace in writing fiction online, creating the character of Katy Perez in her work titled "Diary of a Queen Bee".

Unlike Ikay, Katy is a cool, popular girl adored at Southville Academy. In her story, she creates her dream boy, Hiro.

Check out Ikay's blog on http://diaryofaqueenbee.ph/

More than words is their third time to work together and they're very comfortable working with each other now. Here's our video chat with them during our More than Words set visit at Antipolo.

Mikoy Morales and Enzo Pineda are also part of More than words. Mikoy plays Chester, the son of Victor and stepbrother of Hiro. Enzo plays Nate, campus heartthrob and star player of the varsity soccer team. 

According to Enzo, he's very excited with the show. " May ipinaglalaban ung character ko", Enzo said. One of his favorite scene so far is the fighting scene (suntukan) with Elmo. One of Enzo' s favorite actors is his kuya Dong (Dingdong Dantes), "Nanalo sya ng awards and unpredictable ung acting nya and as a person tumutulong sya sa mga nangangailangan", Enzo said. 

Funny side of Mikoy " Ano sabi ng ulan na nanay sa kanyang anak? Ano? " Ambon ka lang".

"Ano sabi ng donut na nanay sa kanyang anak? Ano? Bavarian!

And for the serious notea, " I am confident na magugustuhan nila, more than presentable ang show",'Mikoy said.


Stephanie Sol, Coleen Perez and Mayton Eugenio are also part of the More than Words.  

Mayton Eugenio as Chelsea, classy conspirator of Belle against Ikay. She is the funny gurl of the Mean girls.

Stephanie Sol as Belle, the queen bee of Southville Academy, girlfriends of Nate and Ikay's biggest bully. According to her, she wants the viewer to love and understand her character.

Collen Perez as Molly, also one of the classy conspirator of Belle against Ikay.

More than words is more exciting with the ensemble cast led by Ms. Jacklyn Jose as Yaya Precy, Gardo Versoza as Victor, Yayo Aguila as  Marissa, Rey PJ Abellana as Emil and Leni Santos as Rose.

Under the helm of Andoy Ranay, More than words premieres on Monday, Nov. 17 on GMA Telebabad after 24 Oras.
