GMA Network will definitely make a splash as Kambal Sirena takes Kapuso viewers to a breathtaking journey of the 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 spectacular visual effects. Kambal Sirena is a fantasy drama series that offers not just a captivating love story but the value of how differences can bring people closer to each other.
Leading the colorful characterizations of the sirena serye 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’s 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 along with them to an isolated island. Due to unfortunate circumstances, Alona and Perlas have to live separately. Living with her mother, Perlas 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 the Kapuso Prime leading man Aljur Abrenica. Aljur plays the role of Kevin, a handsome and rich 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 finds love with Kevin specifically when she was able to save him from drowning.
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?
Making the story and plot even more enthralling are portrayals by Mike Tan as Jun, the man who protects the true identity of Alona; Tessie Tomas as Lola Rita, the uptight grandmother of the twins and mother of Marissa; Mickey Ferriols as Marissa, the kind and caring mother of the twins; and Nova Villa as Tiya Ligaya, the sister of Rita who has a fascination with mermaids.
Lotlot de Leon as Susanna, the mother of Kevin who is against the closeness of his son and Perlas; Pancho Magno as Homer, the closest and trusted cousin of Kevin who eventually betrays him because of envy; Winwyn Marquez as Macy, the rich and fashionable girlfriend of Kevin who is the mortal enemy of Perlas; Chanda Romero as Victorina, the arrogant grandmother of Kevin; Ryan Eigenmann as Enrique, the man Marissa’s parents want to marry her of to; Yul Servo as Damos, a merman and father of the twins; Hershey Garcia, the young Perlas and Alona; Angelika Dela Cruz as Reyna Arowana, the queen of Sirenadia with timeless beauty who takes care of Alona; Rich Asuncion, the mermaid friend of Damos; Polo Ravales as Ataba, the scheming right-hand person of Reyna Arowana, who is tasked to be the protector of Alona; and Gladys Reyes as Barracuda, the evil seawitch who claims to be the rightful queen of Sirenadia.
