The teen screen tandem of Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix—known by their uni‑name BiGuel—are paired once again in Mulawin vs. Ravena ( MVR).
In the fantaserye sequel, the 18‑year‑old Miguel is reprising his role as Pagaspas, a character he portrayed in the original Mulawin series in 2004, when he was only five years old. The 17‑year‑old Bianca, who is playing Lawiswis, will be experiencing the
Mulawin high for the first time. During the MVR presscon last May, the exceptionally good‑looking and well‑dressed pair grabbed the attention of showbiz media, who were one in saying that these two are the Kapuso network’s next bet for superstardom. Some reporters even insisted that Bianca, if taken care of properly, could be GMA’s answer to ABS‑CBN’s Liza Soberano.
As for their new TV roles, Miguel says Pagaspas and Lawiswis are inseparable:
“Kung gaano kami ka‑bonded before, mas bonded pa ngayon. Hindi pa rin kami mapaghiwalay... Kung sakaling mapaghiwalay kami, hahanapin at hahanapin pa rin namin ang isa’t isa.”
BiGuel fans can only hope Miguel will also say the same of their off‑cam, real‑life roles as “special friends.”
