One of ABS-CBN’s most successful drama series Be Careful With My Heart is scheduled on end on November 28 after an amazing two-year and four-month run on Philippine television.
At a grand press announcement at an event’s place in Quezon City, the series stars Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap spoke on behalf of show’s entire cast and production team that that “as a family,” they will be forever grateful to TV and online audiences across the globe who joined their well loved characters’ Maya and Ser Chief in their journey towards “happy ever after.”
Looking way back to the series’ premiere in July 2012, Jodi recalled, “Be Careful changed my life. At our age, Richard and I did not expect that we would experience having albums, world tours, endorsements, and most of all, a love team! All these blessings came our way because of our viewers love and God’s grace.” The 31-year-old actress, now popularly known as Maya, endeared the public as she portrayed the optimistic provincial lass who worked hard to achieve her dream of becoming a flight attendant.
“Most of the time, our fans thank us because of the happiness and inspiration that they get through the show. But in reality, they are the true reason why all of our episodes come out beautifully. Because of them, we are always inspired to work,” added Richard, or Ser Chief to his legions of supporters worldwide.
For almost three years, viewers witnessed how Maya and Ser Chief filled daytime TV with their “moments of love and happiness,” initially as employee and boss, then as sweethearts, a married couple, and now fulfilled parents to Luke (Jerome Ponce), Nikki (Janella Salvador), Abby (Mutya Orquia), and to twins Sky and Sunshine (Jeo Angelo Arquines and Elisha Maurice delos Santos).
And just like all well loved fairytales, a happy ever after will end Maya and Ser Chief’s love story in a few weeks.
When asked as to how they want their show to be remembered by the public, Jodi and Richard almost shared the same sentiments.
“I hope they bring to mind all the moments that made them smile and those that gave them joy, hope and inspiration,” said Jodi who confessed that since she became part of the top-rating romantic series, she became more positive about life and thankful to God for all the blessings that come her way.
“Aside from happiness and hope, I wish they will remember Be Careful With My Heart as a teleserye that taught them to do good for others,” shared Richard.
Be Careful With My Heart in its last few weeks airs Monday to Friday, 11:30 a.m., before It’s Showtime on ABS-CBN’s ‘Primetanghali.’
