After playing the role of Samantha, a powerful vampire, on La Luna Sangre, Maricar Reyes Poon admitted she misses working on the hit primetimes series. With the clamor for her character to return, Maricar refused to divulge whether that is still a possibility with the current storyline. “Ang saya saya ng set. Sobrang saya nung set as in. Pagdating sa role ko, pakitanong na lang po si Star Creatives. They’re having a very difficult time kasi ang daming nag-kri-criticize sa kanila, bakit ganito, bakit ganyan nangyari. Pero naka-plan yan eh so just trust them and support them kasi hindi sila natutulog, nakakaawa sila. Kaya hindi talaga sila natutulog para ma-maintain yung quality,” she said.
After La Luna Sangre, Maricar said she is already busy preparing for another big fantasy soap. “May project na I don’t know if I can talk about it. There’s Bagani but I’m more of a supporting character there. I play a mythical creature which is fun. Natutuwa ako sa mga ganyan eh, yung mga pa-cartoons. It’s a Lizquen na soap for next year. We’re taping that pero not so often now. Ngayon I think natapos na nila yung Ilocos part so ngayon mas dito na kami sa Manila,” she shared.
Maricar said she is currently enjoying working with Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil in the upcoming fantaserye slated for release next year. “Yes nagka-eksena na kami ni Liza. Lahat naman sila I think now walang attitude. I think kasi they know na there are a lot of them. Ang dami ng artista ngayon eh so hindi ka na puwedeng mag-super diva or demanding. Yun nga ang nakakatuwa sa kanila, kahit hindi mo sila alagaan, parang they know how to take care of themselves, they know how to work with each other kahit ang dami nilang artista. Sobrang ganda ng attitude,” she said.
Having worked with two of the country’s most popular love teams, Maricar confidently shared that her experiences with both have only been positive ones. “Ang Lizquen kasi hindi ko pa masyado nakakasama as much as Kathniel kasi naka-ilang taping na rin ako sa La Luna and actually more of side ako ni Richard Gutierrez and Angel Locsin. But I like the work attitude nila kasi sobrang hindi sila maarte, they really do their job, they come on time. Na-appreciate ko talaga that about them,” she added.
