Bianca Umali And Miguel Tanfelix Rejoicing That Their Hit Primetime Show, 'Kambal, Karibal', Gets Extended Again, This Time Up To August

BIANCA UMALI and Miguel Tanfelix are understandably elated since their hit primetime show, “Kambal, Karibal” gets another extension. Earlier, it was announced that it will be airing until June but now, it’s extended again and it will run until August. The series started airing in November last year so that means they will have a record run of nine months instead of the usual 13 weeks or three months.

“Siempre, masayang-masaya po kaming lahat sa show dahil tuloy-tuloy lang ang taping namin,” says Bianca. “Nagpapasalamat kaming lahat sa loyal viewers ng ‘Kambal, Karibal’ sa patuloy na pagsuporta nila sa aming programa at sana, patuloy silang tumutok kasi mas lalo pang gaganda at magiging more intriguing ang next few episodes namin.”

“Kambal, Karibal” revolves on sisters Crisanta (Bianca Umali) and her dead twin Criselda (Pauline Mendoza) whose spirit makes life difficult and complicated for Crisanta when her “kaluluwa” possesses the body of Cheska (Kyline Alcantara) to steal Miguel Tanfelix away from her. Since the show is about siblings, we ask the stars how their relationship is with their own siblings.

“I learn different insights from every single one of them,” says Bianca. “It’s amazing how different we are from one another, yet we understand, love and embrace our differences and similarities. We have varied stories to tell and diverse experiences to share, which make our family more colorful than it already is.”

“I’m an only child, but even if I have no siblings, I’m lucky to have caring cousins and friends who treat me as their own sibling and vice versa,” says Pauline. “They teach me how to care for others. They make me feel that I’m always at my best when they’re around, cheering for me.”

“I learned from my siblings that happiness is a choice and that I should always do what makes me happy,” says Kyline. “Also, living with my two brothers gave me a strong personality because you learn a lot from their kalokohans.”

“Since I’m the one who’s older, I realize that I need to be a good role model for my brother Yuan,” says Miguel. “I need to be strong for him and always do what’s right to set a good example.”

Is it easier to confide your problems and secrets to your siblings than your close friends? “Yes,” says Bianca. “It’s easier to confide in my siblings because they know who I am. I trust and love them, and we were all taught to help each other, in good and bad times.”

“I’m the only girl in our family, so there are times when I feel more comfortable confiding in my best friend because she’s also a girl, and there’s girl stuff that my two brothers will not understand,” says Kyline. “But if I have any problem, or if I need something, I know that I can always count on my kuyas, who will surely not hesitate to move mountains for me.”

“Yes, it’s easier to confide in Yuan, because I know he won’t judge me,” says Miguel. “He talks to me every time he needs good advice on what clothes to wear, or how to hurdle challenges and move to the next level in a video game.”

Meantime, loyal viewers of “Kambal, Karibal” are sad because Kyline no longer has a ka-love team now, after Jeric Gonzales as Macoy was killed by the villain, Marvin Agustin. This is because Jeric will be transferring to the new TV drama, “Ika-5 Utos” with Inah de Belen. This is also the reason why Jean Garcia is killed in “Kambal, Karibal” as she’s also joining the cast of “Ika-5 Utos”. The fans are now asking if Kyline will be given a new love interest since the show has just been extended up to August.
