In an article written by James Patrick Anarcon of the Philippine Entertainment Portal, it was disclosed that the Pambansang Bae, Alden Richards, will soon grace the telefantasya as a Mulawin; or a half human, half birth creature. Richards has expressed his joy over being a part of the television series.
“Lumaki ako ng may Encantadia, e [I grew up with Encantadia],” he said.
Richards will portray the role of a Mulawin named Lakan; who is described as someone who will fight for the diwatas.
The 24-year-old actor-TV host said he is already preparing for the role, which entails him to do action scenes. In fact, he just did his costume-fitting on Wednesday, August 17; the same date when Tanfelix appeared in the show as Pagaspas.

“Diet, kasi siyempre ‘yung costume. Buti na lang may konting background tayo sa pagwo-workout [I need to on a diet, so the costume will fit me perfectly. Good thing I have a background in workouting],” he said.
