Chimerism tackled in ‘Wish I May’
(The Freeman) - January 17, 2016 - 9:00am

CEBU, Philippines - GMA Network begins 2016 with the launch of the newest Afternoon Prime series, “Wish I May,” premiering today after “Eat Bulaga.”

 “Wish I May” tells the story of how two teens find solace and eventually, fall in love with each other amid tumultuous circumstances surrounding their families brought about by the disease called chimerism, a medical condition wherein an individual has two sets of DNA.

 This fascinating soap opera stars the youngest loveteam of the Kapuso Network: Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali. Miguel and Bianca are all set to tackle mature roles in the series as they portray the characters of Tristan, the childhood best friend of Carina who grew up with a dysfunctional family that’s why he is so independent; and Carina, a charming, kind and sweet lady who works hard to gain the attention and affection of her parents.

 The cast also includes: Camille Prats as Olivia, the mother of Carina who has chimerism; Mark Anthony Fernandez as Clark, the husband of Audrey who is greatly in love with Olivia; Mark Herras as Andrew, the loving foster father of Carina, who is secretly in love with Olivia; Alessandra de Rossi as Loretta, the wife of Andrew who is the total opposite of Olivia; Glydel Mercado as Barbara, the loving mother and confidant of Olivia; Rochelle Pangilinan as Audrey, the possessive and alcoholic ex-girlfriend of Clark; Neil Ryan Sese as Gabriel, a greedy and violent person who will eventually be with Loretta; Juan Rodrigo as Edward, the strict father of Olivia; Marni Lapuz as Doris, the nanny of Andrew; Ash Ortega as Eunice, the arrogant best friend of Carina and the dominating girlfriend of Tristan; Sancho delas Alas as Tope, Tristan’s best friend; Prince Villanueva as Dave, one of Carina’s admirers.

 “Wish I May” tells the story of Olivia (Camille) who lost her daughter, Carina (Bianca), because her father was against her relationship with Clark (Mark Anthony).

 After many years, she will search for her child but her sickness (chimerism) will prevent her from confirming and claiming maternal rights to her daughter. While Olivia is in the middle of fighting for her rights as Carina’s mother, she will bump into her true love, Clark.

 Can this help bring Olivia and Carina together? Can Clark and Olivia find their way back to each other’s arms? Or Tristan and Carina will be the ones to continue the interrupted love story of their parents? Will Olivia and Carina ever know the truth about their mother-daughter relationship?

 “Wish I May” will spark the curiosity of viewers about tales of great love finding evidence. It also dramatically narrates Olivia’s (Camille) pursuit of her maternal rights over her long-lost daughter, compounded by the rare condition of chimerism. (PR)
