Bianca Umali Happy & Proud That Their Primetime Hit, 'Kambal, Karibal', Is Extended Until June, Giving It An 8-Month Run On The Air

BIANCA UMALI feels happy and proud that their primetime show, “Kambal, Karibal”, is extended once again. “It’s our 4th time be extended at hanggang sa June na raw ang airing namin,” she says. “When we started our telecast in November of last year, many people doubted kung tatagal kami, but I’m glad that we proved them wrong at aabutin kami ng eight months sa ere.”

Some folks were not optimistic then because the show they replaced, “Alyas Robin Hood”, didn’t last very long against its rival then, “Luna Sangre”, which trounced it in the ratings. But “Kambal, Karibal” has outlived “Luna Sangre” and is now giving tough competition to its current rival, “Bagani”, which is no doubt much more expensive to produce because of its costume epic aspirations.

Netizens who follow “Kambal, Karibal” are excited because the show’s last episodes have become more intriguing to watch. Bianca’s body as Crisanta has been inhabited by her evil twin, Pauline Mendoza as Crisel, while Crisanta’s soul is now in the body of Kyline Alcantara as Cheska. Followers of the show want to know if Cheska would still survive and live if Crisanta would leave her body.

“Mahirap ang acting namin dito ni Kyline, kasi nga ibang mga katauhan ang nakasapi sa amin,” says Bianca. “It’s no joke na gayahin mo ang mannerisms ng ibang tao for you to be credible in your role as someone possessed by another soul. But with the help of Direk Don Michael Perez, we’re confident nagagawa namin nang maayos ang acting that’s required from us.”

Viewers also want to know as to until when will Miguel Tanfelix as Diego will be fooled by Crisel that it’s not the real Crisan who is with him. Netizens have even begun sending messages to Miguel: “Hindi si Crisan yang kasama mo. Katawan lang yan ni Crisan pero si Crisel talaga yan kaya i-break mo na yan.” As for Kyline who’s paired with Jeric Gonzales as Mackoy, looks like she’ll have another leading man in Jake Vargas.
