Despite her traumatic past, Jackie is a positive thinker. She is a resourceful and determined news reporter with a special interest in paranormal and extraterrestrial activities. She is obsessed with retracing the events of the past—looking for any leads of alien movements, hoping to find possible indications of her parents’ whereabouts. And that vital lead may be Kokey. The role was originally given to Angel Locsin.[3] Locsin was replaced by Gonzaga due to Locsin's commitment to Imortal.[4]

  • Wendy Valdez as Lois Magsanoc - Jackie's rival to the heart of Bruce and she pretended to be Princess Reyes (which Annie planned) because of her ambition to be an actress.
