Since former ABS-CBN child star Kyline Alcantara set foot in GMA-7, she seems to be working harder to become successful and so far, everything is paying off.
But it wasn’t always an easy step for the “Kambal Karibal” actress to take that kind of leap especially after spending 7 years of her career with ABS-CBN, and she didn’t find it easy to adapt to her new working environment.
“Siyempre po, sa una, nahirapan po ako kasi siyempre baguhan nga po ako dito sa GMA Network,” Kyline said.
“But pinaramdam nila sa akin yung warm welcome, ang sarap sa pakiramdam na nagkaroon ako ng mga bagong kaibigan, mga bagong katrabaho,” she added.
The 15-year-old actress admits that she’s happy that her new co-stars welcomed her with arms wide open referring to Bianca Umali, Miguel Tan Felix, Pauline Mendoza and Jeric Gonzales.

“Sila po yung unang um-approach sa akin and yun po yung masarap kasi mahiyain po ako,” Kyline shared.
“Sinabayan ko naman po sila ng mga jokes ko para mas maging close kami and habang humahaba po yung show namin, mas nagiging komportable at mas nagiging close kami.”
However, why did the actress decide to leave, why waste a good 7 years with the other network?
It looks like from the start Kyline was clear about what she wanted to still continue her work as an actress.
“Well, natapos naman po talaga yung contract ko sa kanila [ABS-CBN].”
Kyline even shared when her co-manager Manny Vallester asked her to audition for a new soap, and decided to give it a go.
“And then nag-audition kami sa Artist Center para may mag co-manage. So parang sige po, salamat, siyempre bilang artista, ayoko pong mawalan ng trabaho,” she shared.
“GMA and ABS po kasi, I consider them as different countries lang. Sa isang showbiz world, may different countries so parang lumipat lang ako and wala namang conflict talaga.”
Meanwhile, she admits that leaving was her hardest decision, and she also thanked the Kapamilya network for having a part of what she is now as an actress.

“Hard decision siya, of course, kasi yun nga po, doon ako nagstart sa ABS. Pero wala naman pong [bad blood] kasi kung di naman po talaga sa kanila, wala tayo dito. Isa po sila sa naging stepping stone ko para makapunta ako dito ngayon sa kung paano ako umarte and I’m so thankful sa binigay nila, sa pamana nila sa akin.”
