An interracial love story

Real-life sweethearts Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaga topbill the ABS-CBN romantic comedy series Be My Lady

ABS-CBN opened 2016 with a light romantic drama that sheds light on interracial relationships. Be My Lady is the love story of a certified “dalagang Pilipina” and a modern Brazilian-Japanese guy, played by real-life couple Daniel Matsunaga and Erich Gonzales, who find their way into each other’s hearts despite differences in language, beliefs and culture.

A Kapampangan nurse named Pinang (Erich) grew up in a simple family with big dreams. To make ends meet, her mother Marcy (Janice de Belen) works in Singapore and tries her luck there in the hope of earning money to reclaim the piece of land her husband Emil (Al Tantay) used to own and used for farming. But things will not go her way as an unfortunate incident paves the way for her to get deported.

Meanwhile, Phil (Daniel) grows up in a very western and liberated environment. He is independent and lives a very comfortable life with his mother Chelsea (Priscilla Meirelles) in Singapore. A wedding of a dear friend suddenly brings him to the Philippines, which also gives him the long-awaited chance of finding his childhood nanny with whom he wants to make amends.

As he searches for a person very dear to him in his past, Phil also finds the woman who will make his heart skip a beat like no other. How will the aggressive Brazilian-Japanese hunk grab the eyes of the conservative and very reserved Filipina?

Also joining the cast are Yayo Aguila, Almira Muhlach, Yves Flores, Karen Dematera, MJ Cayabyab, RK Bagatsing, Devon Seron, Karen Reyes, Mike Lloren, Ana Abad Santos, Perry Escano, Marife Necesito and comedy trio No Direction.

 Be My Lady is directed by Theodore Boborol and produced by the business unit head led by Ruel Bayani with production manager Mavic Holgado-Oducayen and creative manager Mel Mendoza del Rosario.

Being a couple in real life helped Erich and Daniel land their own TV show.

According to Ruel, DanRich (or as the fans call the sweethearts) was personally chosen by former ABS-CBN president Charo Santos-Concio to play the lead roles.

He explained during the press conference that Erich and Daniel were not the first ones in mind to play the roles they now hold. “Then it was Ma’am Charo who said, ‘Oh, bakit maghahanap pa tayo, eh di si Erich at Daniel. Sila na. Nagmamahalan na sila, bakit pa tayo maghahanap?”

Prior to starring in the teleserye, Erich and Daniel worked together in Two Wives, where their romance first bloomed. However, Be My Lady is their first teleserye as a couple.
