Las Hermanas: a story of love and rivalry between siblings


Las Hermanas is another GMA drama that wants viewers to reflect on the dynamics of sibling relationships and rivalry. Yasmien Kurdi, Thea Tolentino and Faith Da Silva are the Manansala sisters, whose family history begins today on GMA Afternoon Prime after Eat, Bulaga.

“After reading the script and the storycon, I created a Viber group,” Yasmien said of how she, Thea and Faith made a necessary connection for their roles at a recent virtual press conference. . “(It’s a platform) where we could call or talk to each other.” Yasmien is Dorothy’s oldest child, while Thea and Faith are the middle child Minnie and the youngest Scarlet, respectively.

Their virtual bond continued when the stars quarantined themselves at the hotel before the lockdown recording. Yasmien, Thea and Faith talked about mundane things like food. That’s why, when they finally met on set, Yasmien said, “We felt we had been together for a long time.”

Thea, for her part, described the work environment as friendly and “parang walang hiyaan agad”. The stars just clicked right away.

As a newbie, Faith took advantage and easily bonded with Yasmien and Thea. “We would make a video call. On our day off, we tried to do Zumba and workout, ”she recalls. “We made sure to communicate with each other. “

This connection became their source of inspiration to deliver the solo and ensemble scenes in which their characters found themselves.

“A mix of everything,” Yasmien said of acting director Monti Puno Parungao asking them to do it. “There were parts that required subtle play, parang K-drama yung dating like for me and (Jason Abalos who played a romantic interest) Gabriel, ganun yung love story namin. As for the other scenes, we had to do campy, kailangan soap pa rin, para nanduon pa rin yung Dramarama sa Hapon. The scenes dictated their playing, which also challenged them to give a realistic portrayal in most parts.

“I’m used to being a kontrabida,” Thea said. “It was a real change for me because my previous roles required great acting and movements, sumisigaw lagging behind. This time I really had to tone it down (my acting). Direk Monti would call me back if my approach tilted towards Kontrabida. Perhaps scenes dapat ako yung victim, pero ang nangyayari ako yung mataray. With everyone’s advice, Thea was able to pull through.

“Direk Monti was there to explain every scene to us,” Faith shared of her experience, “where the story came from, why it was happening and where it was leading. He was very clear in every scene we were doing. was able to follow Yasmien and Thea because the stars carried her through.

What’s intriguing about Las Hermanas’s account, said direk Monti, is how the main female characters become kontrabida with each other. This contradicts the common perception that family members stay and work together. “They have become the reason the family is going to fall apart,” he added, who believed the story had no small roles as each one is vital and relatable.

Creative Director RJ Nuevas said the narrative was more realistic than the larger-than-life premise of The Half Sisters, Prima Donnas and Kambal Karibal. Viewers won’t see a set of twins where one is a ghost. They will not find an adoptive sister either. What they can expect are sisters who go through real life situations and fight for things, added RJ. Each character represents the different faces and facets of a woman.

According to Yasmien, Dorothy is self-sufficient, strong and independent, but she needs the support of her sisters. “Siya yung mag-ba-balanse her dalawang sisters niya para mabuo sila. Hindi siya papayag na magkawatak-watak yung Las Hermanas (She is the anchor of her sisters and will do anything to keep the family intact) “, added the actress.

Given her birth rank, Minnie struggles to find her voice in the family, Thea said. “Hindi masyadong napapakinggan ang boses, and all alone, naghahanap siya ng way para mailabas yung emotion niya.” Her character will turn to writing poems as a form of expression and will learn the importance of being vulnerable and expressing oneself through Ronald, played by Lucho Ayala.

As for her character, Faith stated that Scarlet was strong and courageous. “When she decides something, she does it. She will do (even) questionable things, ”she added, whose character will remind viewers to be careful with every decision they make.
