Fanatics of My Girl are in for a big surprise with the introduction of a new character played by Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus Third Teen Placer Nicole Uysiuseng. Nicole is set to debut in the top-rating primetime teleserye as Hannah, the missing cousin whom Julian has been searching for.
Kim Chiu, the lead star of the Koreanovela adaptation, is pretty happy about having a new girl in the cast.
“Masaya kasi magdadagdagan yung barkada namin sa My Girl. Since pareho kami ni Nicole na galing sa PBB, alam ko yung pinagdadaanan niya na first time pa lang siyang sasabak sa acting,” Kim revealed to ABS-CBN.com during an interview on the set of the My Girl cast pictorial.
Kim also knows that Nicole will most likely face the same kind of intrigues that she did when she first started out, particularly ones that will compare her with her fellow PBB alum.
“Dati naman nai-compare din ako kay Sandara (Park). Magkaibigan na po kami (Nicole) ngayon, bale wala lang ang intriga.” she said.
The 18-year-old teen idol said that she had met Nicole during the ABS-CBN Trade Launch on July 1, where the newcomer still felt shy about approaching the rest of the cast and crew.
But since they’re both from Cebu, Kim found her own way of bonding with her new co-star. Kim was even surprised to learn that Nicole’s family lives near their own house in the province.
There are a lot more surprises in store for My Girl fans, including a much-awaited kiss between Julian and Jasmine. Be sure to catch the new twists and surprises on My Girl, weeknights on Primetime Bida.
