MANILA, Philippines – ABS-CBN’s top primetime bida drama “Hawak Kamay” will definitely set its audience into a roller coaster experience as it will bid farewell in its much anticipated finale next week.
“Hawak Kamay” stars Piolo Pascual, Iza Calzado, Zaijan Jaranilla, Xyriel Manabat, Andrea Brillantes and Yesha Camille dubbed as the “First Family of Primetime” shared their unforgettable moments and endless acknowledgements in its recently concluded thanksgiving press conference.
“Its not my first time to be a mother but this maybe the biggest mother role I played since I have four kids here,” said Iza.
Asked about how the show was different to other projects he had before, Piolo said that the show proved that a simple family story could awake the audience interest.
This was supported by Business Unit Head Ruel Bayani. “Actually, it came to a point that we expected that the show will only last eight weeks since the story is simple and there are no much blood-related scenes, but we were surprised that it topped the ratings that’s why it lasted for 18 weeks,” he stated.
One of the highlights of the show was Piolo’s (Gin) love interest between Nikki Gil and Iza (Bianca). Gin’s liver cirrhosis diagnosis also added to the flavor of the show.
Now on its last two weeks, the much-anticipated finale will run on the character of Bernard Palanca’s extreme desire to revive his family on the characters of Iza and Andrea.
Will the first family survive the turmoil brought by Bernard’s character? Will they still achieve happy ending holding each others hands as the show’s title dictates?
