Whether in the world of romance, vampires and wolves, or good and bad cops, Richard Gutierrez will bring his A-game.
He made headlines when he officially signed as a Kapamilya and immediately turned bloody, sexy, and creepy in his first assignment as Sandrino in La Luna Sangre in 2017. Playing the supreme vampire opposite the characters of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, not only did he showcase his deadly physique but also proved his flair for extreme action scenes and villain roles.
Let us not forget that romance drama is also his niche. He delighted viewers with his unmistakable chemistry with Elisse Joson in a special episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya titled “Hot Choco” (2019), a cute love story with relatable ordeals like the couple's wide age gap and the cons of a cohabiting relationship.
Richard was back in his bad guy element as Lito Valmoria, the rival of Coco Martin’s iconic Cardo Dalisay in the mega-hit action-drama series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. His entrance marked a new chapter in the series in that his character provided conflict in Cardo and Alyana (Yassi Pressman)’s all-conquering marriage and a stumbling block in Cardo and his team’s mission.
He was everything we didn’t expect in the series, a drug syndicate leader and a mad killer. With his collection of badass moments, we can all agree that the world of Cardo Dalisay has become a good training ground for Richard, ushering him to his first Kapamilya solo-starrer – The Iron Heart.
This Monday, November 14, Richard is back in his element as tough secret agent Apollo in the newest Kapamilya action-drama series The Iron Heart. It’s about Apollo, a debonair agent hot on the trail of a syndicate involved in his father’s killing. With a plot that’s heavy on action and suspense, Richard is expected to flaunt his handsome strikes and punches in hand-to-hand combat, as well as handle guns.
He will be supported by a star-studded cast that includes Maja Salvador, Jake Cuenca, Dimples Romana, Sue Ramirez, Sofia Andres, Meryll Soriano, Pepe Herrera, Baron Geisler, with phenomenal child star Althea Ruedas.
Strong never looked stronger – catch Richard Gutierrez as Apollo in The Iron Heart starting November 14 on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
