Bangs Thrilled To Be Part Of TV5's 'Ang Panday', Admits She's Now Officially Engaged To Her British Fiance

BANGS GARCIA is elated to be one of the three leading ladies of Richard Gutierrez in “Ang Panday” on TV5 that starts airing on February 29. “Maganda yung role ko kasi bale dual roles siya,” she says. “Kasama ako sa mundo ni Panday in the past but, through a magic portal, nakakatawid ako sa mula sa nakaraan going to his life in the present or modern world. Nakakatuwa kasi puro ngayon ko lang nakasama ang co-stars ko rito dahil nga I used to work as Kapamilya lang. Now, I’m gaining more friends, pati sa director naming si Mac Alejandre, and enjoy ako.”

But isn’t she also in the cast of “You’re My Home” on ABS-CBN? “Yes, pero matatapos na raw at semi-regular lang naman ang role ko roon. Isa pa, I’m now managed by Viva Artist Agency, na siyang producer ng ‘Panday’.”

Bangs admits she’s now officially engaged to her British fiancee, Lloyd Birchmore, who she met in Boracay. “That’s where we met and later he proposed to me, so doon na rin ang wedding namin in January of next year.”

Her boyfriend is tall, hunky and good looking enough to be an artista himself. Would he try local showbiz? “Hindi siguro. Happy naman siya sa work niya in London, e.”

Isn’t it to difficult to have a long distance love affair with him? “Not really, with the technology we have today, everyday ang aming communication. And I can feel na sobrang bait niya talaga. Kahit malayo kami sa isa’t isa, I know in my heart that he is really faithful to me kaya walang dahilan para magselos ako at all.”
