‘Luna Blanca’ Will Charm Televiewers Beginning May 21

GMA Network presents an enchanting addition to its primetime block with the premiere of its newest family-oriented drama on primetime TV, "Luna Blanca." It will replace Biritera beginning May 21 on GMA Telebabad.

The series, which is the network’s first multigenerational drama, tells the story of twin sisters Luna and Blanca and their journey towards discovering their ancestry and, at the same time, fulfilling their personal destinies.

Chosen to play the coveted lead roles in the first generation are Kapuso Network’s adorable child superstars Jillian Ward as Luna and Mona Louise Rey as Blanca. The sisters are born with completely different features — Luna has a dark complexion while Blanca is fair-skinned. Making Luna even more unusual is her mystical twin shadow.

Portraying the teen characters in the second generation are two of the most popular Tween stars of GMA-7, Barbie Forteza as Blanca and Bea Binene as Luna.

For the third generation, the adult characters will be played by two equally beautiful and multi-talented TV personalities – Kapuso A-lister and multi-awarded actress Ms Heart Evangelista as Blanca; versatile and sought-after dramatic star Bianca King as Luna.

Adding more star power to this pioneering program are seasoned actors and actresses Raymart Santiago as Luis, Rowena’s well-off lover and heir to their family’s business; Camille Pratts as Rowena, mother of Luna and Blanca who will fall in love with Luis; Chynna Ortaleza as Divine, Luis’ childhood friend who is in love with him.

Completing the star-studded cast of Luna Blanca are Dante Rivero as Lolo Igme, Rowena’s protective grandfather; Marissa Delgado as Doña Consuelo, Luis’ arrogant mother; Karen delos Reyes as Tetchie, Divine’s bestfriend; Mercedes Cabral as Marieta, Rowena’s confidant; Buboy Villar as Jojo, Blanca’s close friend; Arkin Magalona as Toti, childhood friend of Luna and Blanca.

The story of Luna Blanca begins with Rowena (Camille) who is believed to be the last descendant of Luna, the woman with a mystical twin shadow named Celestina.

Rowena grows up under the protective wing of her grandfather, Lolo Igme. She is clueless of her mythical roots and Lolo Igme would always warn her to be mindful of her surroundings.

Then, Rowena meets Luis (Raymart), the rich and kind-hearted unico hijo of Doña Consuelo (Marissa). Despite the extreme difference in their lifestyles, they fall madly in love with each other and their relationship grows even stronger with Rowena’s pregnancy.
When Lolo Igme learns of Rowena’s situation, he once again cautions her to be extra careful of the supernatural beings that inhabit their land. He tells that engkantos are believed to be most fond of pregnant women.

One day, Rowena gets lost while roaming in the forest. Engulfed in tension and fear, Rowena feels that a shadow is following her. Suddenly, she sees an unknown creature – a dark and terrifying engkanto! Panic-stricken, Rowena immediately faints upon seeing the dreadful creature.

When she wakes up, Rowena learns from the villagers that it has been a week since her disappearance. She slowly regains her memory and Rowena reveals that an engkanto raped her. No one would believe her story including Luis who vows to exact revenge. He sets off to the forest and comes face to face with the engkanto. He fights against the terrible monster and because of its powers, Luis will be banished to their realm.

Doña Consuelo’s anger aggravates towards Rowena and blames her for Luis’ unexplainable disappearance. Left with no choice but to leave their mansion, Rowena heads out to Manila to start anew. Meanwhile, she feels uneasy with her pregnancy and fears that it has something to do with her horrible experience with the engkanto. On the day of her delivery, Rowena gives birth to twin girls, but much to her bewilderment, the babies have different features — one is a fair-skinned mestiza (Blanca) while the other one has a very dark complexion (Luna).

Rowena believes that Luna is her offspring from the engkanto. Because of this, she resents and neglects Luna but showers Blanca with her love and affection. Despite this, Luna doesn’t harbor any grudge against her mother. The twins are likewise very close and inseparable. Luna is carefree and even becomes the protector of the weakling Blanca. Luna’s shadow also turns out to be their friend and defender whenever someone bullies them.

However, the twins’ life is about to change with Rowena barely making enough money to make ends meet. Because of her dire situation, Rowena decides to give up Blanca for adoption to Doña Corazon, a rich spinster who likes Blanca very much and treats her like her own daughter. Luna, feeling very sad about their separation, instructs her twin shadow to join Blanca and keep her safe.

How will the separate lives of Luna and Blanca affect their relationship? When the time comes and their paths cross again, will the sisters be able to discover their true identities and reconnect with each other? Will Rowena find it in her heart to accept Luna and acknowledge her as her own daughter? What will be Rowena’s reaction if Luis comes back after being away for many years? Will Luis succeed in having a second chance at life and love?

Under the direction of Dominic Zapata, the spellbinding saga of Luna Blanca begins May 21 on GMA Telebabad and May 23 worldwide on GMA Pinoy TV.
