GMA Network brings to light a one-of-a-kind and extraordinary masterpiece that will touch the lives and tug at viewers’ heartstrings with the Afternoon Prime soap Inagaw na Bituin.
Beginning February 11, a compelling musical-drama series unfolds featuring the country’s most respected and highly-talented artists.
Two of the Network’s sought-after actresses Kyline Alcantara and Therese Malvar play the important roles of Anna Sevilla/Elsa Dela Cruz and Ariela Lopez, respectively.
Anna is the only daughter of a popular showbiz couple. She grows up to be a kind and respectful girl but fiercely protects the people she loves. An unfortunate incident changed her life when she was taken away from her parents. Due to the effects of trauma, Anna forgets her memories and lives a new identity as Elsa with the people she calls family. Ariela, on the other hand, is used to getting her way just like her mother whom she aspires to be like.
Playing equally significant roles is the powerhouse ensemble composed of seasoned actors and actresses: Sunshine Dizon as Belinda Sevilla, the biological mother of Anna/Elsa and a famous singer and actress; Angelika Dela Cruz as Lucy Lopez, Ariela’s mother who was a one-hit wonder; Gabby Eigenmann as George Del Mundo, a record and concert producer with a mysterious past; Angelu De Leon as Aurora Dela Cruz, Anna/Elsa’s adoptive mother; and Marvin Agustin as Eduard Sevilla, a composer and a loving father to Anna/Elsa.
Completing the cast are Renz Valerio as Henry Bautista, Prince’s cousin who is an aspiring musician; Manolo Pedrosa as Prince Antonio, Ariela’s childhood friend who will fall in love with Elsa; Patricia Tumulak as Queenie Belardo, Lucy’s friend and manager; Alyanna Asistio as Tiana Pablo, Belinda’s friend and personal assistant; Melbeline Caluag as Melody dela Cruz, Aurora’s daughter who is also a singer; and Ms. Jackie Lou Blanco as Regine Lopez, doting mother of Belinda and Lucy.
Inagaw na Bituin is a riveting tale that started when Anna, the daughter of showbiz power couple Belinda and Eduard, was kidnapped. The kidnappers were caught dead but Anna was never found. Devastated with the loss of their child, the two decided to end their marriage. Belinda suffers a nervous breakdown and with her sister unstable, Lucy takes control of Belinda’s assets which she used to rebuild her singing career. Little did they know that Anna is still alive, living with her kidnapper’s family and changed her name to Elsa.
Years later, Anna/Elsa and Ariela’s worlds collide in the pursuance of their music careers. Their rise to fame led to the unravelling of Anna’s true identity and the despicable secrets of her family. Apart from sharing the same dream, the two also vie for the heart of the man they both love.

The show’s creative team is composed of creative director Aloy Adlawan; creative head RJ Nuevas; creative consultant Des Severino; headwriter Obet Villela; writers Jaime Katanyag, Tina Velasco; and brainstormers Jason Lim, Dantes Usman, Evie Macapugay.
