ABS-CBN premieres a gripping story about love and greed in “Kadenang Ginto,” with Kapamilya teen stars Andrea Brillantes and Francine Diaz bringing heart and intensity to their roles as rivals.

Andrea was only 10 years old when she headlined her own teleserye, “Annaliza,” which showcased her potential as a drama actress. Because of the role, she was dubbed the teleserye princess and won the Best Child Performer Award at the PMPC Star Awards for Television in 2013.

She also appeared in “E-boy,” “Hawak Kamay,” “Ina, Kapatid, Anak,” “Pangako Sa ‘Yo,” “A Love to Last,” “Goin’ Bulilit,” and some episodes of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” and “Wansapanataym.”

Francine, meanwhile, is relatively new in the industry but already showed potential as the young Erich Gonzales in “Be My Lady” and young Kim Chiu in “Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin.”

The child actress has also appeared in “Maalaala Mo Kaya,” “Ipaglaban Mo” and “The Blood Sisters.”

In “Kadenang Ginto,” Andrea and Francine will play two girls with strikingly different personalities tangled in a complicated rivalry.

Andrea will portray Margaret, the spoiled and rebellious daughter of Daniela (Dimples Romana) who is used to getting everything she wants. Francine, meanwhile, will play Cassandra, raised by her mother Romina (Beauty Gonzalez) to be kind, compassionate, and respectful.

The competition between the two girls will reach fever pitch when they live under one roof, as Margaret gets increasingly jealous of Cassandra and does everything to win the love and attention of Robert (Albert Martinez), Daniela’s father and Romina’s husband.

Watch out for Andrea and Francine in “Kadenang Ginto” on Kapamilya Gold in ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN HD (SkyCable ch 167). For updates, follow @abscbnpr on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or visit
