Tonight, Another GMA Network first will grace primetime television as 'Ilustrado' set the record as the first 'BayaniSerye'. Top-billed by Kapuso Prime Leading Man Alden Richards, 'Ilustrado' will highlight the younger years of our National Hero Jose Rizal. Alden will play the young hero and as he mentioned before, this is a very exciting and challenging role for him.
'Ilustrado' will take us in a journey where Jose Rizal was just a young Pepe and how that period will mold him and make him the National Hero known today. We will also see how our Rizal will fall in love. Solenn Heusaff and Kylie Padilla will play as Alden's love interests.
This 'BayaniSerye' is truly an exciting one and I am looking forward in how Alden Richards will play the role of Jose Rizal, an award-winning character previously played by Joel Torre and Cesar Montano on the big screen. Tune in as 'Ilustrado' make history with it's premiere episode tonight, only on GMA Telebabad.
Check out behind-the-scenes photos of Alden as he transforms into Jose Rizal.
