Erich Gonzales Excited and Nervous as Maria la del Barrio

Erich Gonzales shared that she is both excited and nervous about the "Maria la del Barrio" remake, the newest program on ABS-CBN's primetime block.

Here, she plays the character of Maria, a poor young lady who falls in love with the wealthy Luis Fernando, to be played by Enchong Dee.

It will premiere on August 15.

"'Yung nerbiyos, 'yung pressure, 'di nawawala 'yun pero worth it po talaga at masaya kami sa outcome. So sana po ay suportahan nila at panoorin ang 'Maria la del Barrio,' pinaghirapan po namin ito," she said.

Gonzales first announced that she will be doing this project in December last year.

The show got delayed since they had to wait for the approval of Televisa, the producer of the original "Maria la del Barrio," among other reasons.

"Naging matagal kasi maraming inayos at in-adjust sa script tapos maraming dinagdag. Kagaya ng sinabi ni direk Quintos (Rory Quintos) ay hinintay pa ang approval ng Televisa," she said.

ABS-CBN's remake of "Maria la del Barrio" also stars Paw Diaz, Jake Roxas, Katya Santos, Gio Alvarez, Atoy Co, Jane Oineza, Badjie Martiz, K Brosas, Ian Veneracion and Angel Aquino.
