We are all mesmerized with the sight of the sultry Ina Raymundo in anyway possible. But her appearances in teleseryes have been even more captivating with roles that have been etched in our minds through the years.
After the beer commercial that kicked off her career, Ina made her first appearance in a teleserye—a guest role, playing Eidelweiss Guttenberg—in the iconic teleserye Pangako Sa ‘Yo. She then hit the modeling circuit and headlined several films.
It took several years before appearing again in a teleserye. This was in the 2007 romantic science fiction drama, Rounin, portraying Reema/Deinara, the mother of Mythos (Rayver Cruz), who is on the quest to unlock his past and find out his real identity.
Ina came back in 2010 on Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Midnight Phantom, playing Anya dela Merced, a loving stepmother to Nadja (Denise Laurel), with whom she had a cordial relationship. But this went to a screeching halt after Anya learned that Nadya was in a relationship with the Midnight Phantom, Brandon (Rafael Rosell) who is her ex-lover.
In 2012, Ina continued to be part of the romantic drama series based on the best-selling pocketbooks. She played the role of Consuelo Cordero in Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin. Ina was the long-lost mother of Janine Del Castillo (Maja Salvador).
Also, in 2012, Ina guested in one of the longest running teleseryes, Be Careful with My Heart. She appeared as Celeste Madrigal, the former Chief Operating Officer of Ser Chief’s (Richard Yap) Lim Aviation Services.
Ina then made a special participation in the 2015 romantic fantasy drama series All of Me, wherein she portrayed Dianna Figueras, Dr. Manuel Figueras’ (Albert Martinez) wife, whose death became the cause of his depression. She also portrayed Dolores in Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita.
Last year, Ina played a key role in the action fantasy drama La Luna Sangre as Veruska Arguelles, who betrayed the peaceful group of werewolves, vampires and mortals and tipped the evil vampire Supremo Sandrino (Richard Gutierrez) of their whereabouts that led to their annihilation.
In her latest teleserye role that is set to capture hearts starting August 20, Ina plays Adessa Mapendo in Ngayon at Kailanman, the first teleserye pairing of Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto.
