ABS-CBN's Biggest Teleserye this 2011 'Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin' Premieres March 7, 2011 Worldwide! 

A rare kind of drama, romance and action will be shown on TV beginning March 7 when "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin" premieres on ABS-CBN's prime time block.

The new teleserye features a formidable cast: Coco Martin, Andi Eigenmann, Maja Salvador, Tonton Gutierrez, John Estrada, Ronaldo Valdez, Boots Anson-Roa, Amy Austria and Lorna Tolentino.

Coco Martin will tackle his biggest break to date in this series.

“Sundalo ako dito at tulisan. Dalawang magkaibang karakter po,” Martin shared, and added that this is his most challenging character ever.

“Sinusubukan po talaga ng mga karakter na gagampanan ko 'yung kakayahan ko. Magkaiba po kasi talaga 'yung personalidad nung dalawang characters,” he said.

Martin will have two beautiful leading ladies, Eigenmann and Salvador.

“Grabe 'yung role ko dito. Lahat ng training na pinagdaanan ng mga sundalong lalaki, ginawa ko rin. This is the toughest role I have ever portrayed,” Eigenmann said.

Salvador, meanwhile, revealed she enjoys her unique character in the series.

“NPA ako dito eh. Sa masukal na kagubatan kami nakatira. Ang saya. Kasi 'yung mga bagay na 'di ko pa nararanasan sa totoong buhay, at least may pagkakataon akong ma-experience sa pamamagitan ng seryeng ito,” she said.

Lorna Tolentino, on the other hand, said this could probably the hardest role she would ever portray.

"Hindi harder ang role ko. This is the hardest na ginawa ko sa career ko," she said.

The veteran actress will play the role of a mentally imbalanced wife of a military official.

In the series, Tolentino will face off with award-winning actress Amy Austria, who was persuaded by Tolentino to act again.

Austria has stopped acting for a while, considering herself "retired".

Tolentino and Austria have been close friends since they worked together in the film “Dulce Amor Ina” in the 1970s.

Other Kapamilya artists are also slated to appear in the series: Kim Chiu, Erich Gonzales, Xian Lim, Agot Isidro, Albert Martinez and Angel Aquino.

“Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin”, directed by Ruel Bayani, tackles two worlds, that of soldiers and that of bandits, and shows how these differences will link two opposite poles. The story delves on love, family and conviction to one's principles.
