‘Hanggang Makita Kang Muli’s’ touching finale

GMA’s Afternoon Prime series Hanggang Makita Kang Muli comes to its touching finale today. 

Kapuso viewers followed the intriguing drama about a feral child who was isolated from human contact from a very young age, and has little or no experience of human care, behavior, or, crucially, of human language.

Bea Binene reveals playing the role of Ana is the most memorable for her. She is thankful for the viewers’ and netizens’ support and positive feedback for her performance considering this is her most challenging role so far.

Derrick Monasterio and Bea Binene recall memorable experience in “Hanggang Makita Kang Muli” shoot
 “Lahat masasabi ko po na memorable mula sa pagiging aso hanggang sa naging malinis at maayos ako. Hindi ko makakalimutan yung feeling na hindi ko na kailangan pang mag-make up para maging feral child. Marami rin akong natutunan sa show especially yung hirap na pinagdadaanan ng isang feral child, hindi lang physically, psychologically, emotionally, etc. Kaya kailangan mas maging grateful tayo sa blessings na nasa atin kasi we’re very lucky. Kahit may problema tayo sa buhay ay meron pa rin pa lang mas worse pa yung pinagdadaanan kaysa sa atin.”

She is likewise grateful to GMA Network for entrusting her the role of Ana and to director Laurice Guillen for her guidance all throughout the show.

Derrick Monasterio, on the other hand, says it’s an honor to play the role of Calvin. He has learned many things while doing the soap and he hopes that through his role he was able to impart the values of sympathy and compassion to others. 

Yung pagiging kind ni Calvin, especially sa creatures. Feeling ko naapektuhan ko ‘yung tao kung paano maging kind-hearted sa mga creatures na wala sa tamang pag-iisip. Feeling ko ‘yun ‘yung pinaramdam ko sa mga tao. At sana ‘yun ‘yung na-feel nila.

As the series comes to an end, will Ana finally be reunited with her real parents Evelyn (Angelika dela Cruz) and Larry (Raymart Santiago)? Will Odessa (Ina Feleo) remain evil till the very end?

Catch the finale of Hanggang Makita Kang Muli this Friday after Magkaibang Mundo on GMA Afternoon Prime today.
