Don’t let GMA 7’s The One That Got Away just go away without giving you a kilig-filled finale tonight on GMA Telebabad. After 90 nights on air, the sexy romcom series followed the extraordinary and crazy lives of Rhian Ramos as “Zoe”, Max Collins as “Darcy” and Kapuso Premier Actress Lovi Poe as “Alex” who formed an unexpected bond after discovering that in different times in their lives, they were romantically linked with the same guy “Liam” played by Dennis Trillo.
Lovi shares that it’s an honor for her to play the role of Alex and she will miss working with her co-stars, especially Dennis. “He is very tahimik but very giving. Pag kaeksena mo siya, wow nag-shi-shift siya. Ang galing. I’m very happy kasi first time namin ni Dennis na magkaroon ng TV project. Everything is fresh and brand new.”
The Kapuso Premier Actress will definitely treasure this show since they’ve grown as a family on set. “I will also miss everyone’s craziness sa set which is a good thing. Sila Zoe and Darcy especially sila Direk Mark (Sicat Dela Cruz), makukulit lahat talaga.”
Max shares she’s happy she got to work with an amazing cast. “The friendship and the ‘family’ we created on set are really special. We have a great bond and chemistry that’s hard to find in show business.” She also has many memorable moments portraying the role of Darcy including “our fight scenes because they were pretty wild and fun to do. We were all like kids just playing around.”
Rhian enjoyed her character very much. She’s glad that people loved her character, Zoe, as much as she did. “Sobrang enjoy ako. Sinasabi ko nga sa sarili ko, ‘Girl, kelan ka pa makakakuha ng ganito, enjoyin mo na siya!’ Kasi characters like Zoe don’t just drop on your lap all the time.”
She definitely loved doing the soap because it’s very light and she had a great time working with everyone. “I’m really happy and flattered and natutuwa ako na na-eenjoy ng mga tao kasi this is a very different kind of show, medyo experimental siya for us to do. Pero nung tinanggap nila parang, “Ah okay, ready na pala yung audience for this.” Nakakatuwa kasi mas nakaka-inspire na maging creative kasi nga out-of-the-box siya, kung saan-saan mo siya pwedeng dalhin,” she said.
Dennis shares that the love and support of the fans and viewers have been their source of strength and inspiration since their pilot airing. “Masarap ang pakiramdam na marami ang nakapanood at hindi nabalewala ang pagod namin. Masaya kami kasi going strong ang The One That Got Away. Nakakatuwa kasi kahit nasa ibang bansa ako, ‘Liam,’ ang tawag sa akin, “he said.
