Brilliant actress and homegrown Kapuso artist Bianca Umali is still a certified Kapuso after renewing her management contract with GMA Artist Center last Nov. 18.

After more than a decade of being a Kapuso, Bianca believes she will remain loyal to her home network until the end, “I am so happy, honored, and proud to be a Kapuso. Hindi po ako mapapagod na sabihin iyon. Dito po ako nagsimula sa GMA, at naniniwala rin po ako na dito rin po ako sa GMA magtatapos.”

Throughout her journey as a Kapuso, the beautiful Kapuso star never fails to impress fans with her talent in acting. Most recently, she captured the hearts of viewers with her outstanding performance in the top-rating GMA primetime series, ‘Legal Wives’ as Farrah. Aside from this, other notable shows where she showcased her acting prowess include Wish I May, Once Upon A Kiss, Mulawin vs Ravena, Kambal, Karibal, and Sahaya.

Lahat po ng ginagawa ko ay para sa inyo. Naniniwala po ako na isa sa mga purpose ko sa buhay ang makapagpasaya ng tao and through GMA, through all the opportunities that they give me, nagagawa ko po ‘yung purpose ko at napapasaya ko ‘yung mga tao na nagmamahal at sumusuporta sa akin. Maraming, maraming salamat po,” she said.

Atty. Gozon believes Bianca is set to become one of the most accomplished leading ladies in the industry, “Bianca is a talented actress who impressed us early on in her career.

Rasonable shared there’s still a lot more in store for Bianca as she stays a solid Kapuso, “We are proud of what you have become as an artist.

We look forward to that because we are delighted by how you have performed in all your projects. Keep making us proud because we are very proud to have you as a Kapuso.”

Finally, Ferrer expressed his excitement over Bianca’s international project, “Bianca started in the industry as a child actress, over the years she was able to develop herself to be one of the bankable leading ladies in GMA. Now, from doing drama projects and different projects here in the Philippines, I’m really excited to witness the coming year as Bianca takes on the international stage. We are very proud of you, Bianca.”

Bianca is set to conquer Asia after bagging the lead role in the Season 3 of HBO Asia’s dark fantasy thriller, ‘Halfworlds.’ Her versatility as an artist is truly undeniable as she also released a heartbreak song titled ‘Itigil Mo Na’ under GMA Music last September.
