The production shooting began October 4, 2011 with Dingdong Dantes and Rhian Ramos as the main lead casts. My Beloved is supposed to be the follow up project of the two after the highly-success of their 2009 series Stairway to Heaven, but due of some controversies, Rhian Ramos requests to take a leave from her work because of the trauma she is going through. The actress also asked that she be replaced "as she feels that she cannot give her best to the show given her current state of mind".[1]

The production, leaving no choice but to search for the immediate replacement for Ramos' character. There were plenty of speculations that in actress, Carla Abellana's hands landed the role of Sharina. But in one of her interviews, she told that she haven't heard that yet, but she's willing to portray the role.[2]

On December 16, GMA Network's corporate communications released a statement that "Primetime Queen" Marian Rivera (who had recently completed Amaya) will be Dingdong Dantes's new leading lady, making My Beloved their fifth project together after starring in the past hit television series like MariMar (2007), Dyesebel (2008), Ang Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang (2009) and Endless Love (2010).[3]
