- GMA Network has just confirmed that Alden Richards will be the new Mulawin in Encantadia
- He will be defending the “diwatas” against their enemies
- Richards has been preparing for the role with a good workout and diet, and has not given any indication whether Maine Richards would also be in Encantadia 2016
Pambansang Bae Alden Richards will be with fans more often as he will be joining one fantaserye soon! GMA-7 has announced that Richards will be a Mulawin in the telefantasya Encantadia.
A Mulawin is a half-human and half-bird creature, gifted with strength, speed and agility. Richards will be Lakan, one who will defend the “diwatas” or fairies.
Lakan is described as “makikipaglaban para sa mga diwata (will fight for the fairies).”
The announcement came in 24 Oras where the actor was being interviewed by Nelson Canlas.
The 24-year-old actor said that he is happy to be a part of the fantaserye considering that he grew up with Encantadia.
This Encantadia 2016 is a requel (retelling-sequel) of the 2005 series which carried the same name. Having aired 11 years ago, Richards was about 13 years old when the series was shown. No wonder he said he grew up with it.

The actor already had his “costume-fitting” and part of his preparation was to have a good diet. According to Richards, Encantadia would have him do action scenes, which is why he has to be fit and ready for it.
“Diet, kasi siyempre yung costume. Buti na lang may konting background tayo sa pagwo-workout,” said the actor.
(Of course, diet, because of the costume. It’s a good thing I have a little background on working out.)
Whether his AlDub partner Maine Mendoza will be with him in Encantadia is not yet confirmed. GMA Network would still be giving the details regarding the fantaserye. – SD, Kami Media
