Bianca King signs up for TV5 psycho-drama series

User Rating:  / 2

Rumors have it that some GMA-7 artists are transferring to TV5 because Kapatid Chairman Manny Pangilinan is soon buying the Kapuso Network. The latest GMA-7 talent who had seemingly jumped fences is dramatic actress Bianca King.


While a top TV5 official refuted the rumor, he thanked GMA-7 for having allowed Bianca to do a special project with their network, the psycho-drama series “Obsession.” The weekly show airs on Jan. 23 at 8 p.m., then every Thursday thereafter. 

The official praised GMA-7 for sharing its talents with another TV network. He stressed that such a gesture is a healthy development in the entertainment industry.

Bianca King’s contract with GMA-7 is about to end, and there’s no definite word yet if it will be renewed or allowed to expire.

“My appearance on a TV5 special project is a great opportunity for me to spread my wings,” Bianca said. “It’s a new challenge, it’s a new role for me.”

Bianca, playing the role of Vanessa, undergoes several, serious transformations – from a distressed woman to an obsessed lover who will undertake anything regardless of cost just so she could get back her former boyfriend James (played by Martin Escudero). Such transformations include heavy cosmetic reconstruction of her face and body.

“The project is hard to resist,” Bianca said on why she immediately accepted the project. “It is more challenging than any previous roles I have played in other drama series. The role gives me the opportunity to try several emotions.”

“Any serious actress is always ready to try a heavy role,” Bianca added. “‘Obsession’ is an opportunity for me.”

Bianca studied movie directing and has helmed commercials.

“Obsession” also stars Marvin Agustin, Neri Naig, Maureen Mauricio and Elizabeth Oropesa. Manila Bulletin
