Every night viewers are thrilled to the scenes of the most anticipated primetime teleserye "La Luna Sangre." The lead stars of the teleserye Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla shared the must-watch of the viewers to the upcoming episodes of the program.
"Aabangan kung kailan lalabas ang full transformation ni Malia, finally, and kung kailan magiging bampira si Tristan (watch out if when will be the full transformation of Malia and finally when will be Tristan becomes a vampire) said Kathryn Bernardo, who portrayed the role of Malia in the teleserye. She added "At aabangan din kung kailan kami magkakaharap-harap nina Sandrino, ginagampanan ni Richard Gutierrez and Jacintha Magsaysay ginagampanan ni Angel Locsin (And watch out if when will be the face off of Sandrino, portrayed by Richard Gutierrez and Jacintha Magsaysay portrayed by Angel Locsin).
The pilot episode of the teleserye captures the heart of the viewers and never fails the viewers for the nightly trilled the show brings. The storyline of the show revolves around the prophecy called "la luna Sangre or in other words the blood moon", which says that the child of the most powerful vampire and the chosen wolf will end the evil reign of the vampire marked with the cursed tattoo. This was the series of the primetime show Imortal, where Mateo portrayed by John Lloyd Cruz and Lia portrayed by Angel Locsin are living their lives as mortals in San Isidro. Bost lost their powers when they revived their stillborn infant daughter, Malia portrayed by Kathryn Bernardo and relinquished their leadership of La Liga Unida, the group of vampires and wolves. Sandrino played by Richard Gutierrez, the son of Magnus, the king of vampires and also known as Supremo, ordered his forces to hunt and kill Malia to prevent the prophecy's fulfillment and ensure his ascendancy into power. Malia is a fifth-generation werewolf on her mother's side: her mother Lia and grandmother Lyka were Chosen Ones, members of the powerful Blancaflor family, leaders of the powerful Wayas, and served as Head guardians of their clans.She is third generation vampire on her father's side, her father was a Chosen One, and strongest of all the vampires. Because of Malia's bloodline, she was a threat to Supremo even if she was merely a mortal child and her powers were not expected to manifest until she reached 21.
Later in Manila, Malia met Tristan portrayed by Daniel Padilla, a young man on a mission to avenge his father's death by vampires. Tristan joined a youth vigilante group called Moonchasers, who tracked and killed vampires and protected Supremo's targeted victims.
Accordingly, the fates of Malia and Tristan are linked, this was already prophesized. The electric charge the young couple felt when they held hands signified a conflicted relationship, much similar to Mateo's and Lia's in Imortal. The young couple developed a close relationship, nonetheless, but Tristan uncovers secrets about his friend. He was stunned when he learned of her alliance with werewolves and vampires; disturbed by her deception as Miyo and Toni, was actually Malia, the "New Chosen One", and not mortal. As the story unfolds the budding romance between Malia and Tristan will be put to test. They encounter the same dilemma like the parents of Malia was originally destined to be mortal enemies, but they changed their fate with the strength of their love. Will Tristan and Malia be able to do the same? This one of the big revelations that the viewers are looking forward every night.
The show already aired 120 episodes and hoping for more episodes to be aired. The show was the third installment of Lobo that premiered January of 2008 and followed by Imortal in 2010. Both shows are successful and both top-billed in the primetime. In the three series, there are always three main cast, two protagonists, and one antagonist. In this series let us know the three main cast. First is Malia Rodriguez the character portrayed by Kathryn Bernardo when became an adult and Erika Clemente portrayed the characters childhood days, she is the main female protagonist of the series. She is known as the New Chosen One, who will triumph over the evil vampire born with a mark of the cursed tattoo on the night of "la luna Sangre". She is the hybrid offspring of Mateo and Lia, a vampire, and a werewolf.
Next is the character of Tristan Toralba portrayed by Daniel Padilla when became an adult and Justin James Quilantang portrayed the character in the childhood days, he is the main male protagonist of the series. He grew up as Tonio and Rica Toralba's son. When Tristan was seven years old, vampires killed his father Tonio Toralba. His keen interest in vampires and desire to avenge his father's death led him to join the group called Moonchasers. He has an aggressive and stubborn personality. He was believed to play a major role with Malia in the prophecy. Jethro had seen Tristan as a child linked hands with Malia under the giant full moon. This vision manifested 21 years ago when Jethro laid his hand on Rica's pregnant belly. Madame Star, on the other hand, is afraid of Tristan. She had seen him in her dreams before she actually met him, walking down a dark alley very similar to where they lived, with glowing red eyes like a vampire.
Lastly is the character of Sandrino Villalobo / Gilbert Imperial / Supremo all portrayed by Richard Gutierrez and Zyren Leigh Luansing portrayed the young Sandrino Villalobo, he is the main antagonist of the series portraying three personas. He was born Sandrino Villalobo to Maria Villalobo and Magnus Imperial, who raped Maria to sire the chosen one. Sandrino had a lonely and violent childhood, despised by his mother as a reminder of her rape. Maria physically abused and imprisoned him. She frequently starved him, then called him a monster for feeding and drinking animal blood which he consumed for his sustenance; his nanny was the only person who showed him kindness. He killed his mother in a fit of rage one day. He escaped into the forest with his nanny, until Barang arrived and took him away and raised him as her own son. Sandrino grew up into a handsome and kind young man. At some point, he fell in love with Rica Sison, a Luna officer; she got pregnant and they lived together in Barang's hut. They were attacked by Luna comrades led by Antonio Toralba who found the trio in the forest. Rica resisted them, called for Sandrino's help, but Tonio killed Sandrino as Sandrino fought to save Rica. Barang, who believed that Sandrino was their savior, sacrificed her own powers and chanted the incantation from the Ancient Book of Cursed Spells ("Aklat ng Gaway"), and cast upon Sandrino the power of invincibility; a protection from all weapons used against vampires by mortals and werewolves - signified by the cursed tattoo on his left hand; she bit him and transformed him into an extremely powerful vampire.
On the other hand, even if Daniel Padilla can be viewed in the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival for 2017 for the movie "The Revengers" the love team KathNiel are more focused on their primetime teleserye before accepting other projects. "So far, wala pa naman kasi focus muna sa 'La Luna' lang talaga hanggang next year. So 'yun pa lang muna, (So far, not yet because we focused first really in "La Luna" until next year) according to Kathryn.
Kathryn and Daniel give an update as ambassadors for Cybersmile Foundation. According to them, they are still active in supporting the advocacy of the group against cyberbullying. "Tuloy-tuloy pa rin. Hindi naman natin makikita 'yan nang bigla-bigla. Ang okay doon, sinimulan namin and sana mas marami pang sumama sa advocacy namin, (It is still continuous, we cannot see it abruptly. What is good about it is we already started it and hope many wills joined our advocacy)" according to Kathryn. While Daniel added "Lalagyan lang namin ng konting pangil, kasi kapag masyado lang tayo puro salita, hindi naman nakikinig ang lahat. Kailangan may konting aksyon na mangyayari para lang may lesson sa kahit kanino na nang-aapi nang anonymous sa mga tao. Kailangan talaga may leksyon 'yun, (We will put a little fang because if we are more on words not all will listen. There is a need for action to give a lesson to whoever oppress anonymously to the people. There is a need for a punishment for it)".
