Kylie Padilla's 'The Good Daughter' Premieres Monday on GMA Afternoon Prime

Moving beyond the shadow of her famous actor-dad, Kylie Padilla has started to carve a name in the industry all on her own.


Her first solo project, Blusang Itim, was such a success that GMA-7 is once again banking on the pretty and talented young star as she topbills the new afternoon drama, The Good Daughter. The program will premiere on February 13 after Kokak on GMA Afternoon Prime.
 
In her new project, Kylie plays Bea, a sweet yet assertive teenager who meets a turning point in her life when her mother dies and her father marries someone she disapproves of. As she learns of her stepmother’s true intentions, Bea is forced to reveal a tougher side to her personality and fight for the sake of her family.
 
Kylie prepared long and hard for her new show clocking in long hours in workshops and internalizing her role as Bea. But despite the pressure, Kylie, who just turned 19 last January 25, is thankful for this opportunity and embraces the challenges and pressure that comes with being a full-fledged drama actress.
 
She is joined by a pool of reputable actors led by Raymond Bagatsing who plays the role of Rico, Bea’s father and owner of a successful coffee shop business; Alicia Mayer as Sharon, Rico’s first love and Bea’s step-mother; and Glydel Mercado as Tina, Bea’s mother, who will suffer a painful death in the story.
 
Playing equally challenging roles are Rocco Nacino as Darwin, Sharon’s son from her first husband and Bea’s love interest; LJ Reyes as Frances, Darwin’s sister and another villain in the story; Angelie Nicole Sanoy as Julia, Sharon’s daughter with Rico, who holds the key to the real reason behind Tina’s death; and introducing the newest Kapuso actress, Max Collins, who will play an important role as Ziri, Bea’s best friend and the third person in the love triangle with Bea and Darwin.    
 
Completing the cast are Dion Ignacio as Paul, Frances’ submissive boyfriend; Ervic Vijandre as Mario, an aspiring model and a barista at Rico’s cafe; and Ms. Luz Valdez as Lola Lourdes, Bea’s doting grandmother.
 
In The Good Daughter, Bea (Kylie Padilla) seems to have the perfect life--having a family who adores and provides her every need--until a woman named Sharon (Alicia Mayer) and her 10-year-old daughter Julia (Angelie Nicole Sanoy) appear at her 18th birthday party and introduce themselves as her father’s (Raymond Bagatsing) second family.
Distraught, Bea’s mother Tina (Glydel Mercado) leaves the venue of the party in tears and unfortunately meets an accident when an explosion takes place in the building, which also puts at risk Sharon and Julia.
 
While Tina agonizes in pain, Sharon sees this as an opportunity to replace the former in Rico’s life leading her to kill Tina. As Bea weeps for her mother’s demise, she puts the blame on her father, who is then being pressured by Sharon to marry her or else she and her daughter will leave the country for good. Rico, torn between Bea’s disapproval and the possibility of building a new family with Sharon, eventually gives in to Sharon’s demands.
 
As Sharon assumes the role of Rico’s new wife, her true colors further surface as she mistreats Bea behind Rico’s back. Feeling helpless and alone more than ever, Bea runs away from home and travels to her grandmother’s province.
 
However, as Bea begins to find comfort in the arms of her Lola Lourdes (Luz Valdez), she discovers that her father is gravely ill and that Sharon has started to take over the company. More than that, she uncovers more of her stepmother’s evil deeds, including the real reason why her mother died, prompting her to return home and reunite with her father.
 
As she comes to face with the woman who has done her family wrong, how will Bea protect her father and the business that is also rightfully hers? Can peace still be restored in a home that was once shattered by dishonesty and spite?
 
The Good Daughter is another premium creation by the GMA Drama Group headed by GMA VP for drama Lilybeth G. Rasonable, AVP for Drama Redgie Acuña Magno and Program Manager Helen Rose S. Sese. It is conceptualized by GMA’s creative team which consists of Afternoon Prime head Roy Iglesias, creative consultant Des Garbes-Severino, who also came up with the concept for the show, head writer Aloy Adlawan, writers Anna Aleta-Nadela, Glaiza Ramirez, and Gilbeys Sardea, brainstormers Paul Sta Ana, Delfin Ilao, and Jason Lim, and is made for television by executive producer Carol Galve under the direction of Mike Tuviera.

Indeed, Kylie Padilla deserves more than just being called as “the daughter of”. She will prove this once more in The Good Daughter premiering this February 13 after Kokak on GMA Afternoon Prime.
