Bianca & Bea at summit
Mulawin vs Ravena leading ladies Bianca Umali and Bea Binene dropped by the Summit Media offices last June 27 for some light conversation with YES! Magazine and our online affiliate, PEP.ph.
The two pretty young stars talked about their roles in the primetime fantasy series aired on their mother network, GMA-7. Bianca plays a mulawin (or an avian being) named Lawiswis, while Bea is a tabon (or half- tao and halfmulawin) who goes by the name Anya. Both characters help fight against the mulawins’ rivals, the ravenas, and for their respective love interests: for Bianca, a fellow mulawin, Pagaspas (Miguel Tanfelix); and for Bea, another tabon, Almiro (Derrick Monasterio).
Nineteen-year-old Bea also talked about a previous teleserye that she and Derrick had starred in— Makita Kang Muli, which is currently being aired in Latin American countries, including Peru. She happily reported that she’s getting good feedback from some Peruvian viewers.
For her part, Bianca expressed excitement over her turning 18 years old next year, on March 2. “Mag-expect kayo na magkakaroon ng party,” she said, grinning. “Secret pa lahat ng details. You’ll see next year.”
