Barbie Forteza recalled experiencing typhoons and earthquakes during the lock-in taping for the historical portal fantasy series Maria Clara at Ibarra.
On October 2, Forteza shared the calamities they experienced during the lock-in taping for their series.
“Nagsisimula na ang bagyo nang nasa Ilocos kami nito. Medyo na signal number three kami doon,” Forteza said.
In a separate interview, Dennis Trillo, also shared his experiences during the taping.
“Marami kaming na-experience dito na kalamidad–bagyo, lindol. Inabutan kami ng lindol sa Ilocos habang nagsu-shoot kami.
Madaling araw, nandoon kami sa gitna ng Calle Crisologo, mayroon kaming kukunan na mahabang eksena kaso lang biglang lumindol,” he stated.
Forteza revealed that her experiences on the set made her more cautious.
“Sa set, maghanap agad ng open area because you know the sakuna is always there. Nakakaloka! Kailangan maging alerto ka, maging listo ka sa lahat ng puwedeng mangyari.
“Pangalagaan mo talaga ‘yung kalusugan mo. Don’t take anything for granted. Kunwari ‘yung umaambon, huwag mong i-take for granted. Mag- payong ka talaga kasi ang hirap magkasakit, sa totoo lang.”
Forteza shared that she is thankful for the production team of Maria Clara at Ibarra for being caring and thoughtful.
One day, Klay will find herself in the world of Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere. She gets to meet Maria Clara, Ibarra, and other characters in the novel.
