Andrea Torres and Mike Tan in "The Millionaire's Wife" on GMA Afternoon Prime

Andrea Torres and Mike Tan take the lead roles in #TheMillionairesWife

The story of "The Millionaire's Wife" basically revolves around what's the best and the least you can do for the sake of your loved ones. For us, Filipinos, we have a saying that, " Ang taong nagigipit, sa patalim kumakapit." 

To translate that in English, " People who are in desperate situation will cling on to knives." Meaning, people who are in crucial situations will tend to do anything in order to survive, most especially if it is for the sake of their loved ones. And Andrea, who plays, Louisa Ignacio, a single mom who strives hard for her family most especially for her son, who's suffering from Juvenile Diabetes.

I can relate to Louisa's situation in a way, since I am a single mom and happily dedicating myself to my one and only son. Being in this kind of situation, is not that easy, besides, it is unintended and I firmly opted to be here coming from a not-so-good relationship. It is much better this way, I tell you. 

But in Louisa's case, she sacrificed her own welfare and happiness only to be with a man who's old enough to be her grandfather which will be played by veteran actor Robert Arevalo as Alfredo "Fred" Vergara. She grabbed the rare opportunity, applying the Filipino saying which I've mentioned earlier in this article. 

Love means not only happiness but sometimes it would also mean sacrifice, patience and being selfless. 

The real conflict now will surface upon Mike Tan's comeback. He plays Ivan Meneses, who was so in love with Louisa until he was caught in a mishap due to an illegal activity he got involved with, putting him into jail without knowing he got her pregnant. 

In life, there are really tough decisions we have to undergo, we sometimes fail and sometimes we succeed. With this kind of plot, we will be realizing more of the truth about different kinds of love, pride, prejudice, selflessness and compassion.

 "The Millionaire's Wife" is a story about one woman’s crucial decision to settle in a marriage of convenience with an older man, and its subsequent consequences involving her step-daughter, her step-daughter’s children, her lovechild and her lovechild’s father.

Andrea Torres as Louisa Ignacio

Andrea Torres is The Millionaire’s Wife. She will breathe life to the character of Louisa Ignacio, a hardworking single mother who lives for her son. Louisa will do everything for her son; even marry a rich old man. She vows to take care, to serve and to be a loyal and dutiful wife to him in exchange of all the help he is giving her son who has juvenile diabetes. 

Portraying the character of Louisa is Andrea’s most mature role to date and she is very excited to take on the role. “It’s the most mature role that I’ve done pati ‘yun story, it’s very different. Kaya nga sobrang laking bagay sa akin na nakuha ko ito kasi nung nabasa ko ang script, ang story parang hindi ko pa siya napapanood sa TV tapos ako yung napili para gawin siya, nakaka-excite talaga.”

 Mike Tan as Ivan Meneses

Mike Tan is Ivan Meneses. He is willing to do everything for his loved ones especially Louisa. They both have loved each other until an illegal job caused Ivan to go to jail not knowing he got Louisa pregnant. All the while, Louisa thought that Ivan had abandoned her. Eventually, he finds out that he has a son with Louisa and will do anything to win her and their son back.  

For Mike, playing the role of Ivan is far from the characters he portrayed in the past and this is one of the things viewers should watch out for. “Ang kailangan nilang abangan kung papaano tatatak si Ivan sa mga manunood. Kung papaano niya ipaglalaban ang pagmamahal niya kay Louisa at doon sa anak nila.”

Louisa, a devoted mother that she is, started raising her child alone and worked as a nurse at a hospital until she was hired to be a private nurse of Alfredo ‘Fred’ Vergara played by Robert Arevalo, after he went into a stroke. Fred is a widower and one of the richest businessmen in the country who owns the biggest food manufacturing company, Nourish Food Corp.
