Evil stepsister alert: Maricar Reyes as Sasha Bayle-Salvador in Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon
She gets to make life miserable for Bea Alonzo in the new telenovela.
The primetime telenovela, Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon, began airing on Monday, June 16. Right now, it’s far too early in the series to make a comprehensive plot analysis. All you have to know is that it will involve plastic surgery and a switch of identities at some point. Heck, the soap opera is being billed as the show where lead star Bea Alonzo plays three roles for the first time. So, you have a general idea about what’s going to happen. No, this is not a spoiler, as the full trailer tells you all this. (Check out a clip of the full trailer below.)
In the story, the lead character Rose (Alonzo) has a stepsister named Sasha (played by Maricar Reyes). Now, Rose surely gets our sympathies and we’ll be rooting for her revenge, but there’s something about her scheming stepsister Sasha-full name Sasha Bayle-Salvador-that fascinates us. She’s a villain who looks and sounds so perfect that we can’t help but love her a little. We feel bad about it...but we can’t get enough of her. (Check out the clip above.)
One of Sasha’s nastiest turns involves her seduction of Rose’s man, a chocolatier named Patrick (played by Paulo Avelino).
A character who goes after another character who’s involved in a food-related profession? We’re hooked!
Bonus: Our English translation of the soap’s title is May Tomorrow Never Come. We figured that anyone who wishes that yesterday would be tomorrow doesn’t really want tomorrow to happen. Of course, there’s a good chance that we’re wrong, so post your own translation of the telenovela title in the comments section.
