Regine Velasquez-Alcasid stars in romantic-comedy series Poor Señorita airing after 24 Oras on GMA Telebabad and under director Dominic Zapata.

Regine is back after quite a while not seeing her acting on TV. In an interview, she shared with us her her happiness and excitement to act again, despite feeling a bit nervous.

“I’m very happy to be working with everyone again but I’m also feeling a little nervous since I haven’t done this in a while. But really, I’m very excited because the character is different. I think that is one of the most exciting aspects of the series that we are waiting for,” said Regine.

I Heart You Pare was Regine’s last acting role with Dingdong Dantes in 2011. But Regine’s role was given to Iza Calzado due to the singer’s pregnancy with her first-born.

Poor Señorita is a story about Rita Villon (Regine), an heiress and a successful owner of a perfume company. She is an obsessive-compulsive, perfectionist who is feared by her employees. She has never had a boyfriend and has no interest in men but deep inside, she longs for love and connection.

In a twist of events, Rita loses all her wealth. On her way to gaining back all the things she has lost, Rita has met five street children (Kyla, Charisse, Apol, Rambo and Girlie), who help her get back on her feet. Along their journey, Rita has developed affection for them, teaching her the true value of happiness.
