With the heartwarming support that Kambal Sirena is receiving, Louise, Mike, and Aljur share their appreciation and happiness. “I’m very thankful. Simula noong nag-umpisa kami ganoon pa rin sila, mainit pa rin ang pagtanggap nila sa Kambal Sirena. Lahat ng pagod at puyat namin talagang wort it lahat. Everyone shouldn’t really miss the upcoming episodes because aside from the original concept, Direk Dondon along with the production staff is really working hard on every detail of the soap, from the script up to the characters,” Louise said.

Also something to watch out for is the character of Mike as Jun. According to Mike, “Si Jun ay isang mangingisda at makakahuli kay Alona. Siya ang magsasabi kay Alona na may mga mababait ding mga tao tulad ni Jun na nakakaintindi sa kanya.” When asked about his experience on the set, Mike shares, “Well, it’s my first time to work with Louise at nakakagulat siyang katrabaho. Walang siyang ere at very professional. Enjoy sa set, ‘yung lokohan namin at walang pressure tapos kahapon nag-aral din ako ng basic diving.”

Meanwhile, Aljur just celebrated his 24th birthday last March 24. “Last March 1,6 I had a birthday mall show then I also had the chance to celebrate with the kids of World Vision last March 20. On the 24th, my family visited on the set of Kambal Sirena,” Aljur said. The Kapuso actor is also very vocal on talking about his character and the challenges they’re facing on taping Kambal Sirena, “Hindi po siya madali pero hindi kami tumitigil dahil exciting talaga, laging may bago. On my character as Kevin, abangan nila ang realizations ko with Macy [Wynwyn] at ang pagkakamabutihan nina Pearl at Kevin. Plus excited na din akong makatrabaho si Mike dahil siguradong may mga bagong matututunan ako sa kanya.”

GMA Network is set to make a splash on international screens as Kambal Sirena takes Kapuso viewers on the breathtaking journey of twins, Alona and Perlas.

 

The fresh and original story of Kambal Sirena is certainly something to watch out for—from its state-of-the-art production design to its spectacular visual effects. Kambal Sirena, a fantasy drama series,  is not only a captivating love story but also values how differences can bring people closer to each other.

 

Leading the colorful characterizations of the sirenaserye is Kapuso Prime leading lady Louise Delos Reyes. From the success of her previous series Alakdana, One True Love, and Mundo Mo’y Akin, viewers will surely be captivated by Louise’ most challenging role to date. The Kapuso actress capitalizes on the duality of the challenge, to assume roles as twins Alona and Perlas.

 

In the series, Alona and Perlas are born with unusual features—one is born with gills behind her ears and the other with a mermaid’s tail. Worried that neighbors might be surprised by their strange features, their mother decides to move them to an isolated island. Due to unfortunate circumstances, Alona and Perlas end up living separately. Perlas lives with her mother and works in an ocean park while Alona lives as a princess within the confines of the waters—the kingdom of Sirenadia.

 

Another thing to look forward to is the first  ever team-up  of Louise with Kapuso Prime leading man Aljur Abrenica. Aljur plays the role of Kevin, the rich and handsome son of Susanna (Lotlot De Leon), whom the twins fall in love with. Kevin manages the family company where he meets Perlas.  As they start to develop feelings for each other, Susana learns that Perlas is the daughter of Marissa (Mickey Ferriols), who they consider as the cause of her brother Enrique’s (Ryan Eigenmann) death. Meanwhile, Alona also falls in love with Kevin as she saves him from being drowned.

 

Two individuals with different personalities and circumstances fighting for one man. Who will win the heart of Kevin? Will the uniqueness in Alona and Perlas be a hindrance for them to be loved?

 

Completing the star-studded cast are Mike TanTessie TomasMickey Ferriols, Nova Villa, Lotlot De LeonPancho MagnoWynwyn MarquezChanda RomeroRyan EigenmannYul ServoHershey GarciaAngelika Dela Cruz, Rich AsuncionPolo Ravales, and Gladys Reyes.

 

The sirenaserye is helmed by New York-trained director Dondon Santos with Dode Cruz as Head writer. The creative team is composed of Creative Director, Jun Lana; Creative Head, RJ Nuevas; Creative Consultant, Suzette Doctolero; Writers, Christine Novicio, and Luningning Ribay; and Brainstormers, Gilda Olvidado, Jonathan Cruz and Liberty Trinidad.

 

Kambal Sirena begins airing on GMA Network’s international flagship channel, GMA Pinoy TV on March 11.
