Angelika De La Cruz Plays New Villain In 'Ika-6 Na Utos' Who Wants To Snatch Mike Tan Away From Sunshine Dizon

ANGELIKA DE LA CRUZ has been added to the cast of GMA-7’s hit afternoon soap, “Ika-6 na Utos” as an added antagonist to Sunshine Dizon’s lead character, Emma. Some folks say the show is now “nakakaumay” and they are tired of watching it because the story is just being stretched and stretched to kingdom come.

But if the majority of viewers share the same view, how come the ratings of the show continue to soar to high heavens, eclipsing the noontime shows that compete with it? As Sunshine Dizon herself proclaims: “The ratings will speak for itself. Kahit may pintas, talagang pinag-uusapan pa rin ang show. And ‘Ika-6 na Utos’ remains to be the number one daytime drama and the only one shown six days a week from Monday to Saturday. We started airing in December and now, after six months, mataas pa rin ang ratings namin.”

Obviously, Angelika is introduced to add spice to the story. She plays Geneva, a new contravida. “I plan sana to go back to acting next year pa kasi mataba pa ako after delivering my second child,” she says. “Also, marami rin akong trabaho as a barangay captain in Malabon. But Sunshine herself called me to offer me the role at parang reunion namin since ‘Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin’ days namin. So I’m back to work na. Kontrabida rito si Geneva at pahihirapan ko si Sunshine as Emma kaya I’m sure the viewers will hate me. It’s quite challenging and I’m glad I accepted to do it.”

It is said that if regular viewers of “Ika-6 na Utos” look at Ryza Cenon as Georgia as a monster, then they will be all the more annoyed and incensed by Angelika as Geneva. “Magmamaldita talaga ako rito at sobrang epal kasi pagnanasaan ko pa si Mike Tan as Angelo kaya guguluhin ko ang relasyon nila ni Sunshine,” she adds. “Marami akong pasabog na eksena, pero nagpapayat talaga ako through being a vegetarian and through exercise kasi nakakahiya naman kung may confrontation scenes kami ni Sunshine dahil pumayat na siya, e. So kailangang mag-level up din ako.”

With Angelika as the new contravida, there’s a rumor that Ryza Cenon’s character as the former sole villainess, Georgia, will eventually be eased out since she has left GMA Artist Center and is now managed by Viva. We’re not sure about this but with Angelika’s Geneva character in the show, it can now have added twists and turns in the plotting and we won’t be surprised if the show gets extended again for the nth time and it will last until December.
