Following its three-week recap, GMA’s TV adaptation of the hit 1984 movie by Regal Films Anak Ni Waray Vs. Anak Ni Biday is set to air its much-awaited fresh episodes beginning tonight on the primetime block.
Prior to the suspension of tapings due to the pandemic, viewers were on the edge of their seats with the riveting and suspenseful revelations in the primetime series.
Upon realizing that Ginalyn (Barbie Forteza) is Cocoy’s (Migo Adecer) new girl, Caitlyn (Kate Valdez) – heartbroken and devastated – confronts the former and things ended on bad terms between the two. With their friendship hanging by a thread, Ginalyn and Caitlyn soon realize their fates are more intertwined than they can imagine as Joaquin (Jay Manalo) tries to patch things up with their mothers – Amy (Snooky Serna) and Sussie (Dina Bonnevie).
With the continuation of the family drama, the cast members expressed what they feel about their highly-anticipated brand-new episodes, experiences during their lock-in taping, and what’s in store for the viewers as the story continues.
Dina reveals feeling delighted yet anxious upon their return, “I’m very happy but anxious at the same time. Sana we still get the same warm reception from viewers.”
Snooky entices viewers that there are more exciting scenes to watch out for, “I am so excited. We are back on primetime and so the excitement and drama continue. Mas marami silang dapat abangan. Mga revelation and more heartwarming scenes that deal on family and friendship.”
Likewise, Barbie drops hints on what to expect in the coming episodes, “Kung tuluyan na bang lalayo ang loob ni Caitlyn kay Ginalyn? Kung ipaglalaban ba ni Cocoy ang pag-ibig niya para kay Ginalyn hanggang sa huli? Kung makikilala ba nina Ginalyn at Caitlyn ang kanilang tunay na ama? At kung sino nga ba ang tunay na anak ni Waray at anak ni Biday.”
Kate, in turn, admits feeling tested going back to work after their hiatus, “Na-challenge po ako dahil ilang months na-stop ang taping then pagbalik po namin, mabibigat na scenes na po ang aming kinunan. Medyo na-pressure ako sa adjustments sa emotions ko for my character as Caitlyn. So far, it’s a great experience dahil memorable ‘yun for me.”
