‘Madaling araw pa, pumila na kami ng pinsan ko sa isang mall para magpa-register – Bianca Umali’
BIANCA Umali is gaining great feedback for her portrayal of Farrah, Dennis Trillo’s youngest bride in the hit GMA drama series, “Legal Wives.” Ever since her character appeared on the show, the ratings got higher. And now that Alice Dixon as Amirah, the first wife, has also returned in the story, the show got even more intriguing.
The second wife is played by Andrea Torres as Diane and now that the three wives are all present, expect that they are always bickering about the roles they play in Dennis’ heart, thus making his life as Ismael even more complicated.
“We are all very thankful to the viewers for supporting our show,” said Bianca. “Talaga namang gabi-gabi ay sinusubaybayan nila ang takbo ng kuwento ng tatlong misis na magkakasama sa isang bubong at hindi magkasundo. Huwag po kayong bibitaw dahil mas marami pang nakatutuwang eksenang mangyayari sa ‘Legal Wives’ at mas magiging komplikado pa ang mga sitwasyon.”
Aside from her accomplishments as an actress, Bianca is also making a name for herself as a singer.
Now, she has come up with a new single about unrequited love, “Itigil Mo Na.” She really pours her heart out with so much emotion in a moving song about letting go titled “Itigil Mo Na” released recently by GMA Music.
Bianca also did her civic duty by officially becoming a registered voter. “Madaling araw pa, pumila na kami ng pinsan ko sa isang mall para magpa-register,” she said. “Umabot halos ng 13 hours ang pagpila namin at buong proceso, but it’s worth it. Now, I’m really looking forward to vote in the next election. Gusto ko lang i-remind ang lahat to exercise our right to vote for only the right public officials. So, let us show that we love our country, let’s all vote wisely!”
Claire Castro is one of the most promising new stars today on GMA. Her effective performance in “Nagbabagang Luha” (which ends next week) as Cielo, the scheming and villainous sister of Glaiza de Castro, is getting great feedback and she’s very happy about this.
“Maraming galit na galit sa akin, pero okay lang,” she said. “I just tell myself na hindi naman sila sa akin galit kundi doon sa mga pinaggagagawa ng character ko.”
Claire auditioned for the role and it has really turned out to be a big break out role for her to get noticed. “The character is really very emotionally draining to play,” she added. “Kasi she has so many lines and most of them are angry outburst kaya nakakapagod din.”
How are her parents, former actors Diego Castro and Raven Villanueva, react to her portrayal of Cielo? “They both congratulated me after watching episodes of the show.”
She thanks their director, Ricky Davao, for guiding her in doing her role. “He made me sure that I really understand my character and where she’s coming from kasi maraming layers ‘yun para maunawaan mo kung saan ang pinanggagalingan niya. I also want to thank my co-stars, Ate Glaiza de Castro, Rayver Cruz, Tita Gina Alajar and Royce Cabrera for all their help. Without them, hindi ko magagampanan ng tama ang character ni Cielo.”
She’s now being romantically linked to Royce but she said they’re just good friends.
