Diether Ocampo returns with "Bagani"

12 Feb – Actor Diether Ocampo is making his comeback to ABS-CBN through the upcoming new fantasy drama, "Bagani".

As reported on PEP, the actor, who hadn't starred in any Kapamilya drama in the last couple of years, was recently seen in the full trailer of the LizQuen series playing an immortal god.

The actor's last television drama was the short-lived TV5 drama, "Bakit Manipis Ang Ulap" alongside Claudine Barretto, while his last Kapamilya drama was the 2013 "Apoy sa Dagat", which he starred alongside Angelica Panganiban and Piolo Pascual.

Ocampo was supposed to make his Kapamilya drama comeback in 2015, playing Judy Ann Santos' leading man in "Someone to Watch Over Me". However, the project was shelved due to Santos' pregnancy.

"Bagani", the latest offering of the popular onscreen team Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano, is set in the country's war-torn past, and was described as Gil as a reimagining of how the Philippines was born.

Other stars involved in the project include Matteo Guidicelli, Sofia Andres, and Makisig Morales.
