Actor Benjamin Alves, lead star of GMA Pinoy TV’s newest series Artikulo 247, talked about his role as Noah during a meet-and-greet virtual session. The suspense crime thriller, which also stars Rhian Ramos, Kris Bernal, and Mark Herras debuted on afternoon Tv on March 7.
“It’s very different because it’s not the usual series that tackles infidelity. Not even 20 percent of the show is about that. A lot of it tackles familial issues, a lot of it is about drug and alcohol dependency, a lot of it is coning – manipulation in a very intelligent manner, they’re manipulating the law and whose side you’re taking, and I think the viewers will be torn,” said Alves in a social media post.
The actor, who is also a regular pageant host, plays a principled man who is also recovering from a lost love in the gripping legal drama.
“The audience will see my different side through my character, different attack. The character is a bit gray. The title alone, Artikulo 247, is enough to get you engaged and to love our show,” he added.
