MANILA – Veteran actress Amalia Fuentes will no longer be part of the upcoming ABS-CBN primetime series “Muling Buksan Ang Puso.”

In an official statement released Monday afternoon, ABS-CBN head of Corporate Communications Bong Osorio said it was Fuentes herself who resigned from the show.

"Ms. Amalia Fuentes has resigned as actress for the upcoming teleserye, Muling Buksan ang Puso, due to creative differences with the production team and the challenges and demands of regular taping schedules,” he said.

Osorio added the management accepted Fuentes’ resignation and “her replacement will be announced soon."

“Muling Buksan Ang Puso” was supposed to be the reunion project of Fuentes and Susan Roces, who were known as rival movie queens during the 1960s.

The series will also feature Julia Montes, Enrique Gil, Dante Rivero, Dominic Ochoa, Daniel Fernando, Malou Crisologo and Pooh.
