After watching the preview of Legally Blind, I can't wait to watch the following episodes! Janine Gutierrez, without a doubt is a versatile actress. She can can very well do comedy, romance, horror and drama projects and for this teleserye, she definitely stands out once again. She can be paired off with any actor and still manage to have that kiig factor in it especially now that she will be paired of with Mikael Daez. As for Marc Abaya, he is without a doubt an actor that will kake you feel you need to see him in person and make him punish for his evil deeds.
