Another remarkable Kapamilya series is surely going to touch our hearts as it will show an inspiring and heartwarming story about family, friendships, and relationships. The newest series entitled Bagong Umaga has already been one of the most anticipated dramas by our Kapamilya viewers after it was officially announced last Sunday, October 4 via ABS-CBN Facebook Live session.
Heaven Peralejo portrays Tisay in the series with the plotline subtly revealed in a teaser tagline: “Magkakaibang pagkatao, magkakakabit ang kwento!” Tisay is the daughter of the characters of Nikki Valdez and Keempee de Leon. Holding grudges against rich people, Tisay will fight for and stand up for the things and people that are important to her.
She already gave huge thanks and appreciation to the people who offered her this opportunity. In an Instagram post, Heaven said, "Super grateful for being entrusted with this project that it outweighs all the pressure! Thank you so much Direk Lauren! Would also like to thank all the people working really hard for this, @rgedramaunit , @vipyamienzo and my network, ABS-CBN.” Excited for all of you to see this really soon!” the actress wrote in the caption.
Heavan began her showbiz career as a Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 housemate in 2016. After she appeared on PBB, Heaven landed different roles in various Kapamilya dramas, such as the hit series Pamilya Ko and Starla.
The great ensemble cast includes talented young stars - Barbie Imperial, Michelle Vito, Tony Labrusca, Kiko Estrada and Yves Flores, and veteran actors including Rio Locsin, Nikki Valdez, Keempee de Leon, Cris Villanueva, Sunshine Cruz, Glydel Mercado, Bernadette Allyson and Moi Bien.
Tony portrays the role of Ely, who has a heart of gold and always stands with justice. He also makes things light through cracking jokes especially when he’s with his friends. But Ely is actually dealing with family problems which he doesn’t tell or show to his friends. His parents here are Irene (Bernadette Allyson) and Matthew (Richard Quan), and his brother is Gab (Ali Abinal).
Tony first made his presence felt as a contestant for Pinoy Boyband Superstar in 2016 before landing his breakthrough role in the iWant Original “Glorious” and subsequently in Sino Ang Maysala: Mea Culpa?
On the other hand, Barbie Imperial plays Cai, the only child of Magui (Sunshine Cruz) and Ian (Cris Villanueva). She works hard and does everything just so she can receive the love she yearns from her parents.
Barbie also began her showbiz journey as Kuya’s housemate on PBB 737 in 2015. She would appear in the teleseryes Langit Lupa and La Luna Sangre before taking her first lead role in the 2018 drama Precious Hearts Romances Presents Araw Gabi, among other appearances in Maalaala Mo Kaya, Ipaglaban Mo, Wansapanataym and FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
Meanwhile, Kiko takes the role of Otep, the loving son of his step mom Diana (Glydel Mercado), to whom he owes a lot for taking responsibility and care of him. Kiko was last seen as a cast member of the riveting teleserye Pamilya Ko last year.
Dodong is the character portrayed by Yves, who is the adoptive brother of Tisay, who is a loving and a caring sister to him, even if they’re not biologically related. His character also has a funny, “boy-next-door” personality. Yves just completed his duty as one of the lead stars of the military drama A Soldier’s Heart, which aired its finale last month.
Meanwhile, Michelle plays the character of Angge who’s abandoned by her parents. But she was found by a woman who served as her grandmother who took care of her. Angge and her grandmother were deprived of a comfortable living that’s why Angge does her best just so they can make ends meet. She is the best friend of Tisay. Michelle has long appeared on supporting roles in major Kapamilya teleseryes, such as her most recent in Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit, La Luna Sangre, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, and The Greatest Love, among others. She is currently seen in Ang Sa Iyo ay Akin.
Aside from its stellar cast, what makes Bagong Umaga a must-watch series is its relatable story most especially about love, and family.
