ANGELIKA De la Cruz and Gelli de Belen join the powerhouse cast of the primetime action-drama, “Beautiful Justice”, and the three lead actresses, Yasmien Kurdi, Bea Binene and Gabbi Garcia, welcome them warmly as they usher in new interesting characters that will make the show even more colorful and lively.
Angelika will play the role of Katrina, the lawyer of Yasmien Kurdi as Alice who is facing a serious case in Court after she was framed up. Gelli, in turn, will play one of the prison inmates Yasmien has to contend wih when she is sent to jail.
“First time ko to play the role of a lawyer so excited ako sa pagpasok ko sa ‘Beautiful Justice’,” says Angelika. “I will be helping Yasmien in her fight for justice after her opponents, led by Bing Loyzaga and Valeen Montenegero as drug syndicate leaders, set her up. Gagawin ko ang lahat para mapalaya siya, mapatunayan wala siyang kasalanan sa krimeng ibinibintang sa kanya at nang makalabas na siya ng bilangguan.”
In turn, Gelli as the queen of the inmates in prison will make life difficult for Yasmien. Also added in the cast as prison inmates are Angeli Bayani and former Sexbomb Mia Pangyarihan. “Yes, kami ang mga makakasama ni Yasmien sa loob ng piitan at abangan nyo ang gagawin namin sa kanya habang nakabilanggo siya with us,” says Gelli who says it’s her first time to play a female prisoner in a teleseryes and she’s really enjoying it.
Meantime, Yasmien is very happy for winning the best actress in a single performance award fo the lead role of an ill-fated OFW worker that she played in an episode of “Tadhana”. “Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Star Awards for TV dahil second award ko na ito sa kanila,” she says. “First time ko was when I won best drama actress for ‘Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka’ na HIV patient naman ako. I also want to thank GMA-7 for continuing to give me very challenging roles na malaki ang naitutulong sa akin for me to continue to grow in my craft as an actress.”
