The Mexican and Pinoy Fernando Jose

Here's Venezuelan actor Fernando Carillo (Fernando Jose in the Mexican Rosalinda) and Filipino actor Geoff Eigenmann (Fernando Jose in the Pinoy Rosalinda):

Is Geoff most suited to play the role of Fernando Jose in the Filipino adaptation of the 1999 hit Mexican telenovela Rosalinda?

Well, Geoff may be far more mestizo than the original Fernando Jose (who is sexier and more Pinoy-looking than Geoff), but considering his capacity as an actor, he for sure could do justice to the role.

I believe Geoff will re-invent Fernando Jose and have his own mark.

As Fernando Jose on GMA's Rosalinda, it will be by far Geoff's biggest role ever since playing Andrew/Harry on ABS-CBN's Hiram in 2004.

Yes, it took 5 years for Geoff to get another landmark role. Probably, ABS-CBN is now aware of the reason why Geoff moved to GMA.


Carla Abellana, a neophyte actress, will play as Rosalinda, which was first portrayed by Mexican Superstar Thalia while Sheryl Cruz is Valeria, mother of Fernando Jose and controversial Katrina Halili will play Fedra, the older rival sister of Rosalinda.
