- ‘Kara Mia’ not a Harry Potter Sequel
- Some netizens believe that ‘Kara Mia’ draw their inspiration from ‘Harry Potter’s’ Lord Voldemort
- ‘Kara Mia’ is expected to replace ‘Cain at Abel’ on its timeslot
GMA Network‘s new television series “Kara-Mia,” led by Barbie Forteza and Mika Dela Cruz, has been the talk of the town after releasing its teaser. TV audiences were shocked, amazed, and humored by the unrealistic body structure that the characters portrayed.

This is why some netizens cannot shake off the fact that Kara-Mia has somewhat copied Voldemort, the main villain in the Harry Potter series. This prompted GMA Network to release a statement to the press saying that the television series is based on a true story from India about a case of disprosopus or craniofacial duplication, that is an extremely rare congenital disorder whereby parts or all of the face are duplicated on the head. There was also a similar report of the said condition in Great Britain.
Therefore, it was really just a coincidence on the Voldemort impression and a fun-fact at the same time.
Lakas maka-Harry Potter nung background music ng KaraMia teaser. Akala ko Quirrelmort lang ginaya ng GMA dun. Ampf!

For Barbie and Mika, what do they have to say on the traction that they have been getting before the series?
“Para po sa akin, this is something new,” Barbie said. “Kahit ako nagulat nang i-offer sa akin ito, after ng dalawang romantic-comedy series na ginawa ko, ang Meant To Be at Inday Will Always Love You. Pero naroon din iyong kaba na baka hindi magustuhan ng televiewers, pero mas optimistic naman ako na ang mga tao ay naghahanap lagi ng bagong mapapanood kaya baka maging interesado rin sila kapag ipinalabas na ang serye naming ito.”
“Ako naman po, ang una kong naisip parang creepy naman ang kuwento,” Mika answered. “Pero nang makabasa na ako ng mga reactions ng mga netizens sa social media, naisip ko rin na nakaka-intriga talaga ang concept ng show at alam kong magugustuhan nila ito. Hindi ko rin po alam kung paano ang gagawin sa special effects na magkabaligtad ang mukha namin ni Barbie until nagsimula na kaming mag-taping.”
This only shows that the more people talk about a series, the happier the members of the cast would be.
