Dantes showcases acting chops in GMA’s ‘I Can See You: AlterNate’

·1 min read

2020 Seoul International Drama Awards Asian Star Prize and Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes is back on GMA Telebabad as he portrays for the very first time a dual role in the latest installment of the hit GMA drama anthology, “I Can See You: AlterNate.”

The new miniseries narrates the story of a refined man whose marriage will be tested when his wife unknowingly cheats with someone who looks completely like him and is apparently his long-lost twin brother.

“It’s one of the hardest things I’ve done. Not just in terms of acting but life in general. There were also things I experienced the first time like lock-in taping and being away from my family for 30 days,” said Dantes, who plays identical twins Nate and Michael.

Joining the stellar cast of “I Can See You: AlterNate” are Beauty Gonzalez as Sheila, Nate’s wife; Jackie Lou Blanco as Carmencita, Nate’s foster mother; Joyce Ching as Angie, Michael’s younger sister; and Ricky Davao as Lyndon, Nate’s foster father.

Director Dominic Zapata, who helms the compelling miniseries, praised both Dingdong and Beauty for their acting dynamics.

“This is the first time Dingdong and Beauty met and worked with each other. They’re so dedicated to their craft they can throw lines over Zoom. Then when they get together in person, they allow their acting to organically form while the scene is happening. It gets even better as the day progresses,” said the director. “If there’s a lot of joy and love, it shows in the work. Definitely, this is one of those projects where it’s evident.”

Watch “I Can See You: AlterNate” Monday to Friday, 8:50 p.m. on GMA Telebabad. (PR)
