Maricar explained exit from ‘La Luna Sangre’

Singer Karylle, one of the mainstays in “It’s Showtime,” said she wants nothing but good things for co-host Anne Curtis, who tied the knot with Erwan Heusaff Saturday, November 11. 

“You know Anne is one of the sweetest, most hardworking, most fun-loving people you’ll ever meet and I’m just so happy that I’ve gotten to know her this much,” she said.

Karylle said Anne has always been helpful to her from the start of their friendship. 

“One of my first memories of her, nasa Cebu kami, naka-laptop ‘yan, wala pang Twitter back then, it was Pinoy Exchange I remember and ganun lang, I would just see her from afar and now parang even though she’s younger than me may mga guidance ako (from her) online, may mga ‘You have to be on Instagram,’ mga ganyan,” she said. 

Karylle also shared she’s very much a fan of the yuletide season. 

“Pagdating talaga ng Pasko, very close to my heart bilang isang Tatlonghari (Karylle’s surname). Hindi ko linayo ‘yung sarili ko sa pangalan ko na meron tayong mga maliligayang araw at ganito talaga ang Pasko,” she said.

Apart from celebrating the holidays, Karylle has an annual gift-giving event at ChildHaus in Manila. 

“Please come to Child Haus. Hindi naman sa panata (ko ito). May time ako na nag-struggle ako nung ‘yung paborito ko namatay. Her name was Blessie and for a while nahirapan ako, ‘yung parang I didn’t put my whole heart in it but dahil pedia cancer patients ‘yung karamihan sa kanila they can tell when you’re being fake or hindi mo binigay ang buong puso mo. So once ibigay mo talaga they will open their arms to you. They’re having the time of their life and kami rin namang mga ate at kuya,” she explained.


A good many were caught off guard when Maricar Reyes’ character, Samantha, a vampire who views her immortality as a curse, met her end in Tuesday’s episode of “La Luna Sangre.” 

Maricar as the sultry, blood-sucking warrior seeking to protect the chosen one, Malia (Kathryn Bernardo), was killed by the show’s main baddie, Sandrino (Richard Gutierrez), Samantha’s half-brother who is considered as the most powerful of their kind. 

“Nagampanan niya iyong role niya,” Reyes said of her character’s sudden death in an interview with ABS-CBN News’ MJ Felipe. “She’s really just there to serve, protect iyong bagong itinakda.” 

Her devotion to her role as protector to Malia, and the other leads, Tristan (Daniel Padilla) and Jacintha (Angel Locsin), quickly made her a fan favorite just two months after joining the cast. 

Samantha was first thought to have been killed during “Imortal,” the second entry to the franchise that began with 2008’s “Lobo.” 

Her exit from “La Luna Sangre” prompted fan outcry, with many clinging to hope she would turn out to be alive, similar to how she was revealed to have survived her supposed death in “Imortal.” 

Asked about whether her character was truly dead this time, Reyes teased: “Manalig kayo sa Creatives.” 

She also denied being pregnant, which was rumored to be the reason for her sudden departure from the show. 

“No. I’m sorry. Hindi pa. We’re still waiting and we’re still trying. Abangan and keep praying for us.” 

Reyes added that she continues to be grateful for the massive support she has been getting, saying that Samantha is one of her favorite roles to play. 

“Ang saya niya kasi she’s good and bad. Hindi siya squeaky clean, hindi rin siya super bad so puwedeng may laro doon. It’s a nice break from the drama,” she explained.


Iñigo admitted he and Maris Racal are “exclusive,” but have no plan to rush things.

In an interview   after the Krem-Top press conference, Pascual opened up about his closeness with Racal.

“We are exclusively talking to each other. I’m not talking to anybody else. I asked her, and she’s not talking to anybody else. We are not an official thing, but we definitely find each other very special …,” Pascual said.

The twenty-year -olds know they have no need to hurry their relationship.

“Mahirap i-rush ang things. I mean, in this generation, ‘yun din ang napansin ko, stages ang relationship – mayroon ng talking, seeing each other, mayroon na talking pero may kausap naman palang iba,” he shared.
