EXCLUSIVE: Why Bianca Umali agreed to join the movie project 'Family History'
April 18 2019
Kapuso teen star Bianca Umali is going full throttle in her showbiz career this year by doing multiple projects.
Ito na ang simula. Matutunghayan na natin ang kwento ng pangarap, kultura, pag-ibig, edukasyon, pamilya, paniniwala, pananampalataya o sa madaling salita, ang kwento ng buhay. Siya ay sumasalamin sa katatagan at determinasyon ng mga kababaihan. Ang kwento ng babaeng pinagpala, ang magbibigay liwanag at pag-asa sa lahi ng mga Badjaw. Mga Kapuso, malugod kong ipinakikilala sainyo, ang aking minamahal, ang itinakda na si #Sahaya ????????????? Gabi gabi, 8:45pm, pagkatapos ng #KaraMia sa GMA Telebabad.
Aside from her exciting primetime soap Sahaya, Bianca is also part of two movie projects—the family drama Family History and the horror flick Banal.
Bianca tells GMANetwork.com that it can be stressful doing numerous projects, but she feels thankful because not everyone is given this kind of opportunity.
The Kapuso actress explained, “Yes, I’m actually very busy, but at the same time sobrang nag-e-enjoy ako sa ginagawa ko because I have Family History, I have Sahaya, and I have the movie Banal as well.
“I am very thankful na hindi naman lahat ng mga katulad ko na ngangarap ay nabibigyan ng pagkakataon na makarating kung saan man ako ngayon at magawa ‘yung nagagawa ko.
“I’m very blessed dahil nararamdaman ko ‘yung tiwala sa akin ng mga tao, ‘yung pagmamahal, at ‘yung suporta.”
She also grabbed the chance to work with Kapuso comedy genius Michael V. in Family History, where he is multitasking as script writer, producer, director, and actor.
In an interview with GMANetwork.com, Bianca Umali pointed out that seeing Michael V doing all of these things made her say ‘yes’ to this movie.
She narrates, “Of course, na-excite ako because it is one of the first films of GMA Pictures again and I’m very grateful to be part of it and also it is the debut film of Kuya Bitoy, which he wrote, he produced, he is directing and also he is one of the actors as well.
“Knowing Kuya Bitoy and knowing how he works and how he thinks, I was excited to see and be part of this adventure.”
Family History is a joint movie project of GMA Pictures and Mic Test Entertainment founded by the showbiz couple Michael V and his wife Carol Bunagan.
The movie is set to premiere in cinemas this coming June 2019.
