KathNiel celebrates 6th anniversary as loveteam


It’s been six years since they first shared the screen, but we remember it like it was just yesterday. She just wrapped up a wildly successful telerserye (#MaraClara) and he was just taking his first steps in showbiz.

Their chemistry hit us like magic, instant and very much effective. Little did we know it was the beginning of a phenomenon or better yet... the rise of a kingdom. It’s been six years, and the kilig’s still fresh.

To Kathryn and Daniel, thank you. And to the fans, cheers to y’all! Happy ANIMversary, #KathNiel! #ReelxReal

Carmina Villaroel returns to GMA7

Homegrown kapamilya-turned-kapuso-turned-kapamilya star Carmina Villarroel is now a returning kapuso talent after five years.

Villaroel who was last seen as Lucille in afternoon drama series Doble Kara will be working again in GMA7. She will be part of the upcoming fantasy-drama series Super Ma'am which will star Marian Rivera-Dantes.

"Excited ako sa role ko. Excited ako to work with Marian. It's my first time, first time ko siya makakatrabaho!", Carmina exclaimed in excitement upon getting the chance  to work with GMA7's primetime queen.

The actress plays Ceres, a mysterious lady who plays a big part in Marian's character Minerva and her transformation to becoming a superhero.

"Dahil hindi siya magiging super, slight super lang, kung hindi dahil sa character ko", she shared about her role.

Super Ma'am will start airing on television this month.

Earlier this year, her good friend Janice De Belen made her GMA comeback through an AlDub-led series "Destined To Be Yours". Will Gelli De Belen follow suit? Just asking...
