MANILA, Philippines — Social media users have mixed reactions on the casting of “The Broken Marriage Vow,” the Philippine adaptation of the hit series “Doctor Foster.”
ABS-CBN revealed on Friday that Jodi Sta. Maria, Zanjoe Marudo and Sue Ramirez were tapped to lead the local adaptation of the series.
While several social media users approved the casting, some said that it’s better to give the lead roles to others.
Twitter user Vinci Mendoza hoped that the series should be played by Judy Ann Santos, Ian Veneracion and Julia Barretto.

Another Twitter user said that Judy Ann or Angel Aquino should play the lead role instead of Jodi.
Consistent na gusto ng mga tao either Juday o Angel Aquino pero di kayo nakinig at pinairal nyo pa rin palakasan. Kung anong taas ng excitement sa serye nung una syang kinadismaya ng lahat nung nareveal ang cast. Boo!!! #TheBrokenMarriageVow#DoctorFosterPH#DrFosterPH
