Richard Gutierrez is the newest addition to the long-running series "FPJ's Ang Probinsyano"!
Last night, July 7, we finally got to meet his character Lito, who is a wealthy businessman, and was actually Alyana's (Yassi Pressman) childhood friend and former lover.
In the episode, Alyana and Cardo (Coco Martin) were trying to find a hide out of Lily's (Lorna Tolentino) armed groups.
The couple then found themselves going back to Alyana's childhood home in the province where they would be safe from Lily. What Alyana didn't know was that Lito had been helping her family while she was away, and the two finally met again.

Prior to his appearance in the show, Richard expressed in an interview how glad he was to be part of the action series.
"Ikinagagalak ko na maging bahagi ng ‘Ang Probinsyano.’ Alam naman natin na ang 'Probinsyano,' sa generation namin, ay isang haligi sa action at sa teleserye. Excited ako bilang actor na maging bahagi ng ganitong klaseng show na ilang taon nang tumatakbo and yet number one pa rin,” he enthused.
