MANILA -- Actress Dawn Zulueta is joining the cast of the upcoming series "Dyesebel," ABS-CBN announced on Wednesday.

"I am very thrilled. Napakaganda ng pasok ng 2014 para sa akin with this beautiful big project. I am very proud that Dreamscape chose me to be part of 'Dyesebel,'" said Zulueta said at a press conference, where she also announced that she will be playing the mother of the title character.

The actress said she's excited to work with Anne Curtis, who will play the iconic mermaid created by komiks novelist Mars Ravelo.

Zulueta said she is also happy to be working again with actor Gerald Anderson, who played her son in the 2013 series "Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin."

"Aside from that the genre of the show will introduce me again to the young generation, at least maiba naman," she added.

Just like in her previous projects, Zulueta said she has the full support of her family, especially her kids.

"Alam niya (Anton Lagdameo, her husband) na magtatrabaho ako this year. Excited siya para sa akin. Mas na excite ang mga anak ko. Sinabi ko sa kanila, 'Mama will be the mother of a mermaid,'" Zulueta said.
