MANILA – Ivana Alawi and Kit Thompson are set to reunite onscreen for the upcoming ABS-CBN series “Ang Lihim ni Ligaya.”

This was announced on Wednesday right after they had a story conference for the new show.

“Dream come true talaga. Actually hindi pa nagsi-sink in. I am so excited na mapanood niyo kasi sobrang ganda ng kuwento,” said Alawi.

The actress said she will be playing the role of an island girl who falls in love with a womanizer, to be played by Thompson.

When asked how they feel to be paired with each other, Thompson said: “I am feeling grateful and excited of course. Siyempre si Ivana 'yung kasama ko.”

Alawi added that are already comfortable with each other since they already worked together in “Mea Culpa: Sino Ang May Sala.”

Meanwhile, Alawi teased that there will be a lot of intimate scenes between her and Thompson in the series.

Despite this, the actress said she doesn’t have any inhibitions about her body.

“I am so proud of myself. I love myself. I love my body. It’s not something na dapat kong ikahiya kasi proud ako sa sarili ko. Feeling ko kung hindi mo mamahalin ang sarili mo, sinong magmamahal sa 'yo?” she said.

The two will start taping in March and the series is slated for release in April.
