With his captivating handsomeness, unmistakable charm, and admirable personality, we really can’t blame Magda (Erich Gonzales) if she fell for Miguel, portrayed by bankable hunk actor Kit Thompson, in the well-loved series.
Unfortunately, all of the kindness and affection he showed her was all for the show. It is because he is an ally of the Narcisos, the affluent and wicked family who relentlessly makes the life of Magda and of the people dear to her a living hell.
Since Magda firmly refuses to sell the secret formula of her soap to them, the Narcisos have been doing everything to forcefully take it from her, as well as to completely get rid of her as they see her as a threat to their company’s beauty line.
It can be recalled that their paths initially crossed when he saved Magda from trouble, which immediately convinced her that he’s indeed her hero and friend. Unbeknown to her, getting to know her, visiting her often, and helping her with her daily tasks were actually part of his plan to manipulate and persuade her to accept the Narcisos’ business proposal.
He may not have succeeded in taking the secret formula from her nor convincing her to take the Narcisos’ offer, but he was able to triumphantly win and play with her heart. As she grew up being ridiculed for her physical appearance, Magda craves to feel beautiful, loved, and accepted – which Miguel was able to give her.
Since this is something that is truly new to her, she was overpowered by her emotions and willingly put her guard down. She drunk alcohol then got intimate with him, which resulted to her getting pregnant.
As she tried to confront him, they’re able to finally find out the truth about him that further sparked her wrath against the Narcisos.
While Magda wasn’t able to escape from the spell he cast on her, for sure, the audiences, especially the ladies and the girls at heart, wasn’t able to resist not only his stupefying good looks, but his drooling finely-chiseled body too, which he displays in some of his on-screen stints and on his Instagram account!
And what could be the secret behind his “bodylicious glory”? Well, aside from the good genes that run in their family, the 22-year-old Filipino-Kiwi hottie revealed in an exclusive interview with StarStudio.ph last year that he’s able to achieve his current physical appearance and continuously improve it by working out, eating good food, and having adequate sleep.
Furthermore, he disclosed in a separate video feature of the online magazine that he’s been wanting to develop his chest by doing more chest workouts and that he’s inclined with surfing as well!
As we wait for the upcoming developments of his character and its story arc in La Vida Lena, you might want to take a peek of his scorching body shots through the photos we got straight from his IG!
