Actor Geoff Eigenmann returns to ABS CBN via the hit daily morning teleserye “Be My Lady.”
Eigenmann, 31, will play the role of Dr. Joselito Mariano who will work with Pinang, a nurse, portrayed by Erich Gonzales. The serye also stars Daniel Matsunaga.
It was in April when Eigenmann hinted at going back to the Kapamilya network when he posted a photo of his call slip for the drama anthology “Ipaglaban Mo.”
The actor started his movie career on ABS CBN with the youth-oriented TV show “Ang TV” in 1992.
He also appeared in other Kapamilya shows, including “Hiram,” and “IkawAngLahatSa Akin.” He also became a VJ for MYX on Studio 23, an affiliate of ABS-CBN.
For the past seven years, GMA was the actor’s home studio appearing in programs namely “Rosalinda,” The Last Prince,” “Show Me Da Money,” “Glazilada,” “Dangwa,” “Adarna,” etc.
He also starred in the films “Batang X,” “Bcuz of U,” “For the First Time,” “Villa Estrella,” and “AngPanday.”
Eigenmann, cousin of actress AndiEigenmann, left ABS CBN in 2009.
These days, Eigenmann is said to be dating Angeli Mae Flores, former “Star For A Night” finalist, and member of all-girl singing group Blush.
Two years ago, Eigenmann became controversial when he allegedly engaged in a feud with former sweetheart Carla Abellana via cryptic messages on Instagram despite having broken up.
But Abellana has denied that the cryptic messages were meant for her former boyfriend, according to an interview on GMA 7.
“I don’t follow him anywhere so I wouldn’t know kung ano man ’yung mga pino-post nya. Ang mga post hindi naman yan necessarily para sa isang tao. Bato-bato sa langit, kung sino man maapektuhan, okay,” the actress said.
Abellana said that she does not want to comment about Eigenmann because people might misinterpret it.
‘Baka sabihin na naman na she’s using (him) to promote whatever project so I really don’t want to talk about him anymore,” she added.
