'Maria De Jesus' premieres on ABS-CBN's Hapontastic block on Monday
Hot stars Maite Perroni and William Levy pair up in Maria De Jesus, the newest Mexicanovela in ABS-CBN’s Hapontastic block. A well-loved singer from the pop group RBD, Perroni made her acting debut in the telenovela Rebelde in 2004. She was duubbed as the next Thalia. Meanwhile, Levy has been dubbed one of the sexiest leading men in telenovelas. This Brad Pitt-lookalike model won a Best Actor trophy for his performance in Maria De Jesus. Levy is now finishing a film with Jacqueline Bracamontes, the lead star of Las Tontas.
After spending her childhood in the orphanage, Maria De Jesus (Perroni), or Marichuy, runs away and lives on the street by herself. Growing up wandering the dangerous streets, Marichuy is raped by a stranger. The ordeal leaves her traumatized for the rest of her life.
She tries her best to live a normal life with an elderly woman named Candelaria. Marichuy will try different odd jobs to help Candelaria with the expenses, but because of her mischievous ways, Marichuy gets into trouble with the law. She faces the court where the judge, who may be responsible with her unhappy fate as a child, sends her to jail.
But psychoanalyst Juan Miguel San Roman (Levy) comes to her rescue. The court will put Marichuy under the careful watch of Juan Miguel. Living under one roof, he will then begin to see the goodness in Marichuy. However, Juan Miguel is still haunted by the tragic memory of his wife’s death. Juan Miguel falls in love with Marichuy, but before they can enjoy a happy life together, she will discover his deep dark secret.
Be captivated by the romance—with a twist—between Marichuy and Juan Miguel in Maria De Jesus beginning July 6 right after Precious Hearts Romances presents Bud Brothers.
