MANILA, Philippines -- It's official! Dawn Zulueta will replace Maricel Soriano in ABS-CBN's upcoming teleserye ‘Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin.”

The 47-year-old Soriano allegedly lost her temper while filming with co-star Gerald Anderson.

Zulueta said she was saddened by the news that maricel had been dropped from the soap. She admits feeling nervous about filling in for the Diamond Star but also vowed to give her best to make her 'ate maria' proud.

Zulueta added that she's excited to join Anderson, who has played her son in a movie.

“The only time I’ve worked with Gerald is with ‘Catch Me …I’m in Love’ and that was a very, very light rom-com. Wala naman kaming heavy na eksena na drama. I’m really looking forward to this because nuong napanood ko si Gerald sa ‘Budoy’ talagang napabilib niya ako,” Zulueta said. -- "[email protected]," January 29, 2013
