Production and development
On August 3, 2012, the network announced that they had decided to remake Sana ay Ikaw na Nga. The same date, the production team introduced the actors that would portray the two main characters, Mikael Daez and Andrea Torres.
While there are many similarities to the original version, many changes were made. Headwriter, RJ Nuevas, whose concept gave birth to the original series, further stated that compare to the original series, the new version's storyline is more matured and daring. "We had to make the story more contemporary. This is a great challenge for all of us. After a decade, one of the most-loved teledramas in Philippine television will be given a different touch that is appropriate for today's times. We're speeding it up a little bit [because the series is good only for one season] and putting some more interesting twists and turns", he added.
Andrea Torres and Mikael Daez were chosen to play Cecilia and Carlos Miguel, respectively. The two are very happy and beyond grateful that their mother studio is trusting them with their own drama series.
Torres underwent several acting workshops as her preparation for her role.
Prior to this project, Torres once got so depressed at work that she even thought of quitting show business. She stated: "There was a point when I asked myself if I really had a future here. I gave myself until age 24 or 25. If nothing happened, I'd start looking in another direction". Until her big break had finally come. "I waited for this for so long! It's a good thing I didn't lose hope or just decided to quit. I'm glad I still believed this would happen to me. And now I'm feeling the pressure. I'm working twice as hard to prove that I deserve it", she added.
