Memorable Teleserye Stars of 2007

2007 was another year full of controversies. Angel Locsin, GMA 7's Queen of prime time, flew to rival station ABS-CBN and this move eventually led to a major controversy in the showbiz industry. GMA lost a star but a new one, in the person of Marian Rivera rose. Then, after closing the first book of Maging Sino Ka Man, another book had open adding Angelica Panganiban to the roster of stars that include John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo, Sam Milby and Anne Curtis. Without further ado, look back and relive the Memorable Teleserye Stars of 2007 based on PEP's Top List. (I think this is ranked from least to most)

  • Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson (Sana Maulit Muli)

The love team that people followed right after their debut in the hit show, Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition, Kim and Gerald were finally given a mini-series of their own. And both did not disappoint their fans when Sana Maulit Muli premiered at the start of 2007.

  • Jennylyn Mercado & Nadine Samonte (Super Twins)

"Kapangyarihan ng Araw! Taglay ay liwanag. Kambal na lakas. Kami ang Super Twins!" was the tagline of the hit fantaserye.

The telefantasya from GMA-7 was followed by kids all hoping to transform like child stars Nicole Dulalia and Ella Cruz, the lead stars of Super Twins. With their powerful rings, Sha-Sha (Nicole) and Tin-Tin (Ella) transform into teenage superheroes Super S (Jennylyn Mercado) and Super T (Nadine Samonte), respectively.

  • Eliza Pineda (Maria Flordeluna)

A re
make of the drama series, Flordeluna that made Janice de Belen popular in the 80's also made a star out of Eliza Pineda. Eliza's acting capabilities were already being praised when she became part of another ABS-CBN teleserye Mga Anghel na Walang Langit. She was given a chance to shine in Maria Flordeluna and pit acting talents with drama luminaries Albert Martinez, Liza Lorena, and Eula Valdez.

  • Kokey (Kokey)

When the lovable alien hit the boob tube in August, no one expected that Kokey would become a big star. The television series was a remake of the 1997 movie by Romy Suzara, which starred Carlo Aquino, Ricky Davao, and Cherry Pie Picache.

  • Yasmien Kurdi and JC de Vera (Pati Ba Pinting ng Puso/ Pasan Ko ang Dai gdig)

After her successful stint with the primetime series Bakekang, Yasmien was given her first solo soap in the afternoon slot of GMA-7. Pati Ba Pintig ng Puso? was a remake of the 1985 Viva movie that starred Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion.

  • Krystal Reyes and Eunice Lagusad (Princess Charming)

Both Eunice and Krystal came into our boob tube via the drama series Bakekang in 2006. Because of their popularity during the series, they were given a new show in the afternoon drama program Princess Charming. Again they charmed the viewers with their acting talent.

  • Sunshine Dizon (Bakekang)

Bakekang was first introduced to us by Carlo J. Caparas in his serialized comics in the early ‘70s. It was made into a movie in 1978 by Nora Aunor. And this was introduced to us in September 2006.

  • John Lloyd Cruz & Bea Alonzo, Sam Milby & Anne Curtis (Maging Sino Ka Man)

The series that ended May 2007 prompted a return to boob tube last December.

The saga which centers around the four characters of John Lloyd, Bea, Sam and Anne was closely followed when the drama series began on October 2006. It's dramatic one-liners were something to watch out for in the first season of the show.

  • Derek Ramsay (Ysabella)

Derek was a relatively unknown actor before this breakthrough role was given to him by ABS-CBN. As Mito Valenzuela, the sexy chef captured the heart of Ysabella (Judy Ann Santos), forming a love triangle with Ryan Agoncillo.

  • Marian Rivera (Marimar)

Undoubtedly, the biggest star of 2007, Marian Rivera captivated everyone for her role in Marimar. Marimar continues to earn high points in the ratings and has had a loyal following every night. Many await with bated breath the ending of the show this March. But they also anticipate the next show of Marian Rivera, whether she will fly as Darna or swim as Dyesebel.
