Aljur Abrenica had long been a leading man and top primetime star and his march into the Kapamilya network was nothing but stirring and remarkable.
It was a great year for him as a string of projects greeted him that showcased the other facets of his craft and unraveled how an effective actor he is.
Straddling on a horse and exposing his chiseled physique most of the time, Aljur wowed avid viewers of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano with his portrayal of the notorious and ruthless Miguel Enriquez, whose illegal mining company was being opposed by the rebel group Pulang Araw in which Cardo (Coco Martin) is involved.
He later on taught us to appreciate everything our parents provide us when he took on the character of the irresponsible and prodigal son Anton in the “Tungkod” episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya.
The 27-year-old actor had his first leading role through Wansapanataym Presents Louie’s Biton, opposite former leading lady Louise delos Reyes.
And now, Aljur is set to amaze us again through the newest Kapamilya teleserye Asintado, in which he is going to play the aggressive and cunning Xander Guerrero who will help Julia Montes’ character in her vengeful pursuits.
Asintado will premiere on July 15, replacing Pusong Ligaw on Kapamilya Gold. It also stars Shaina Magdayao, Lorna Tolentino, Agot Isidro, and Cherry Pie Picache.
