KYLINE Alcantara says her decision to move from ABS-CBN to GMA-7 was one of the wisest decisions she ever made in her life. Her first teleserye with them, “Kambal Karibal”, really hit it big and she proved herself in the acting department playing one of the villains.
It no doubt boosted her stock as she gained a lot of fans and was tagged as “la nueva contravida”. Now, for her next project, she’s no longer just the contravida because she plays the lead role no less. This is in a musical drama entitled “Inagaw na Bituin”.
“It’s about the child of a famous showbiz couple na kinidnap noong baby pa siya,” she says. “She is raised by someone else and just like her parents, she’s also very talented kaya may musical component rin ang show. Aspiring singer ako rito kaya kakanta ako this time.”
Supporting her is award-winning teen star Therese Malvar who plays the villain role this time. The more senior stars with them are Sunshine Dizon, Gabby Eigenmann, Angelika de la Cruz, Marvin Agustin and Angelu de Leon. Also in the cast are teen actors Renz Valerio and Starstruck 6 male winner Migo Adecer.
“I really feel so blessed na may kasunod agad ang ‘Kambal Karibal’,” adds Kyline. “Pinag-pray ko noon na maging busy ako and the Lord granted it, nangyayari na nga 'yun ngayon. Ibang-iba ang role ko rito from ‘Kambal Karibal’ and I want the viewers to see 'yung kaibahan ng role ko kasi mabait ako rito. Maganda ang values conveyed by the show about family love and how important it is for you to work hard to fulfill your dreams. Abangan nyo ang ‘Inagaw na Bituin’ at malapit na po siyang ipalabas.”
What can she say about the scuttlebutt that she’s at odds with her “Kambal Karibal” co-star, Bianca Umali? It’s said Bianca felt so insecure when they were doing the show when she’s supposed to be the contravida and yet she’s getting better feedback than her, so much so that they really physically hurt each other in their catfight scenes?
“Hindi naman po totoo 'yun. We don’t feel any anger or hate for each other kasi we’re both just doing our job and what’s expected from us. We have a very good professional relationship. Nagkasama nga kami ulit sa ‘Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko’ at okay naman kami, so sana po, tigilan na ang mga intrigang pinag-aaway kami.”
