FiLay uncovers Valentine’s present for fans


Actors David Licauco (Fidel) and Barbie Forteza (Klay), recently revealed their special gift for FiLay fans this Valentine’s Day.

On Monday, through the showbiz segment of GMA’s 24 Oras, the two announced the postponement of the finale for Maria Clara At Ibarra. The historical hit show is based on the novels of Jose Rizal, starring Julie Anne San Jose and Dennis Trillo.

While the series is supposed to conclude this week, Licauco and Forteza have officially confirmed its extension. According to the creators, the decision is in response to popular public demand, particularly among fans of the FiLay love team.

During an interview with 24 Oras, FiLay detailed what their admirers can anticipate following the extension of the project.

Forteza said, “Thirteen years na hindi nakita ni Fidel si Klay. Parang ang sasandaling panahon lang nilang magkakasama. Parang ang unfair naman nun for Fidel.” She further acknowledged the need to give their characters more time to spend together.

On the other hand, Licauco added, “Mai-inlove ‘yung mga fans, ‘yung mga supporters of FiLay. Kasi syempre ‘yung mga scenes na ginawa namin was really sweet. Maraming roller coaster of emotions, biglang sasaya, ta’s biglang  mai-inlove, ta’s biglang malulungkot, iiyak. So ‘yun, kailangan nilang maabangan ‘yun.”
