Bong Revilla 1

From the same writer who brought to life the magical worlds of Encantadia and Amaya, SUZETTE DOCTOLERO brings to the public viewers another great primetime teleserye on GMA starring Ramon ‘Bong’ Revilla Jr. – INDIO.

Directed by DonDon Santos, INDIO is set to become another great hit on Philippine TV by combining real historical facts and mythological characters to tell the story of a pinoy demi-god called INDIO (also known by other names in the story as MALAYA and SIMEON) played by veteran action star and Philippine Senator Ramon ‘Bong’ Revilla Jr.

I was invited last January 9 to a special preview and screening of the first episodes of INDIO at the SM Megamall.  It was a star-filled event which includes all the major casts of the show.

Also playing as INDIO are two promising young actors that will surely take your breath away with their acting talents – VINCENT MAGBANUA playing the child Indio (MALAYA) and ALDEN RICHARDS as the teenage Indio (SIMEON).
