GMA Network’s top-rating and well-loved soap “Meant To Be” never fails to mesmerize and bring kilig to primetime viewers. And as the episodes of the rom-com series get more exciting and addicting, four new heartthrobs join the cast starting this week.
Matthias Rhoads, Vince Vandorpe, Carl Cervantes, and Dave Bornea spice up the adventures and love lives of the main characters – Barbie Forteza, Jak Roberto, Ivan Dorschner, Addy Raj, and Ken Chan.
Matthias Rhoads is a Fil-Am model who stole hearts when he appeared in the viral Valentine ad of a fast food chain.
In the series, he breathes life to Gordon Smith. He grew up in Manila but decided to study in New York and is interested in extreme sports.
Vince Vandorpe is a Fil-Belgian model and “Meant To Be” is his very first TV project. As he joins the cast, he plays the role of Calvin “Avi” Jacobs. He is half-Belgian and he grew up in London. He is Beatriz’s (Sheryl Cruz) son and Ethan’s (Ivan) cousin. He’s the quiet type who loves music.
Carl Cervantes is an alumnus of Starstruck 6. He has appeared in several Kapuso programs like “Dear Uge”, “Juan Happy Love Story” and “A1 Ko Sa’Yo”. Carl makes his mark in the series as he portrays the character of Alexander “Yexel” Smith. He is Gordon’s half-brother. He suffers from inferiority complex while growing up because of comparisons between him and Gordon.
Meanwhile, Dave Bornea is one of the members of the all-male group One Up. He has previously appeared in “Alyas Robin Hood”. In the soap, Dave takes on the role of Andrew Zapata. He is a famous photographer with Spanish blood. Being an only child, he is spoiled and a happy-go-lucky kind of guy.
These four new guys, collectively known as “GAYA”, will become the greatest rivals of the “JEYA” boys composed of Jai (Addy), Ethan (Ivan), Yuan (Ken) and Andoy (Jak). Aside from adding complications to the lives of the JEYA barkada, will they also vie for Billie’s love and affection? How will the arrival of these guys affect the friendship of Addy, Ivan, Ken and Jak?
