Thursday, October 21, 2021

Spearheading the newest Kapuso drama series “Las Hermanas” are Yasmien Kurdi, Thea Tolentino, Faith da Silva, Jason Abalos, and veteran actor Albert Martinez which will premiere this October 25. 

Meet Dorothy, Minnie and Scarlett

Las Hermanas tells the story of the Manansala sisters as they try to help each other survive the trials of life. From a picture-perfect family, the sudden demise of their father will ripple unfortunate events and scandals that will ravage the family.

The stellar cast promised that the first week of Las Hermanas will be intense and full of drama.

Sa unang linggo ng Las Hermanas, matutunghayan nila ang istorya at pinagmulan ng conflict ng Las Hermanas hanggang sa dulo,” teased Yasmien who will play Dorothy Manansala, the eldest sister who sets herself aside to guide her younger siblings. 

Playing the role of Minnie, the middle child, Thea said that viewers will discover the uniqueness of their characters. She shared “Makikilala ninyo nang husto ang magkakapatid kung ano ang ugali nila at kung paano ang relationship ng magkakapatid at ng iba pang characters.”

Faith added “’Yung first week ng Las Hermanas, napakabigat. Napakadaming mangyayari na dapat abangan ng mga manonood.” She will play the youngest sister named Scarlet, the most ambitious who doesn’t care how her siblings will feel as long as she reaches her dreams. Her character will have a romantic affair with Lorenzo, played by Albert Martinez.

Jason, who acts opposite to Yasmien, said that he learned a lot from Albert whom he considered as his senior and inspiration. “Kahit nasa malayo ako, pinapanood ko siya. Kasi sila ‘yung isa sa mga artista na gusto kong makuha ang career path kasi gusto kong tumagal sa showbiz. Sobrang professional.”

Still at his prime, Albert impressed the Kapuso audience with his dapper look and shared a piece of advice to young actors who want to flourish their showbiz careers. He said “You have to continue reinventing yourself based on the requirement and needs of that particular stage of the industry. Kasi kung magpaiwan ka, [you] will not get anymore projects. So it’s very important that you need to study what’s lacking in the industry.”

Bloggers were also given the chance to interview the lead stars of Las Hermanas featuring Yasmien Kurdi, Thea Tolentino, Faith Da Silva and Jennica Garcia in a Zoom Conference.

The four beautiful women shared how it was indeed very challenging to shoot a teleserye this pandemic because they are required to be in a locked-in taping however, everything went well and they were able to bond as well so that onscreen they would really feel and look as if they were sisters in real life. 

This is the first time that Jennica will play a kontrabida role and although she felt pressured and overwhelmed, she manages to perform well because according to her, if you're surrounded with great actors, you'll be even more motivated to showcase what you can do. 

This is the launching project of Faith Da Silva and she admitted that it was indeed a very challenging role, her character is very driven and adventurous and above all, she is paired with an older man and no less than Albert Martinez but she said, she is very grateful and thankful to GMA Network for giving her an opportunity like this so that she can excell and be good at her chosen craft. She added that the veteran actor guided her well. 

This is a much different role for Thea since most of her roles are Bida-Kontrabida ones and she always nails it however, in this teleserye, she will be the artistic one but determined as well. She is paired with Lucho Ayala. 

Yasmien Kurdi has done several notable roles in the past that each character has played a vital part in her life. She said that in every project that she does, she always makes it a point that she delivers well and that she will give her 100% so that the viewers will continue watching their show.

Las Hermanas is a product of the visionary minds of GMA's award-winning and highly talented creative team Creative Director Aloy Adlawan; Creative Head RJ Nuevas; Creative Consultant Kit Villanueva-Zapata; head writer Geng Delgado; writer Brylle Tabora and Nehemiarey Dallego with brainstormers Tina Velasco, Cynthia Paz and Rhoda Marino.
