Star Circle Quest finalist Roxanne Guinoo continues to prove her mettle as a dramatic actress as she topbills ABS-CBN's newest daytime TV series "Ligaw na Bulaklak," which premieres May 26 after "Wowowee."
Roxanne, last seen in the action series "Palos," essays the challenging role of  Lea Alegro – a woman scorned by her childhood memories and need to fulfill her life's promise to bind her family together. Lea is a "whisperer" to a champion horse.
Will life allow her to be happy? Or, will she continue being just a "Ligaw na Bulaklak?"
Following the success of "Prinsesa ng Banyera," "Ligaw na Bulaklak" also taps Andoy as its director and Ara Mina as main contravida Janet, whose immense love for a guy pushes her to do unimaginable things.
"This will be a groundbreaking series," says direk Andoy. "You will see a different Roxanne here. She will play a horse whisperer. You will also see how talented our cast members are."
This series also marks a milestone in the cast's respective careers – Kjwan vocalist and vj Marc Abaya makes his acting debut as one of Roxanne's leading men Francis, a romantic, well-educated lad. After playing the mentor in the hit "Kung Fu Kids," multi-awarded actor Sid Lucero plays romantic lead Billy, Lea's childhood sweetheart. Manila Vice Mayor Isko Moreno makes a showbiz comeback as Mon, a self-made man whose undying love for a woman continues to inspire him to do good. Coco Martin also makes his kapamilya debut as Ronel, Lea's brother.
"Ligaw na Bulaklak" also features the love triangle of Matteo Guidicelli, Erich Gonzales and Carla Humphries. Also included in the cast are Smokey Manoloto, Arlene Muhlach, Ron Morales, Jaymee Joaquin, Nonie Buencamino, Joem Bascon, and Chokoleit with the special participation of Jodi Sta Maria.
