These photos are from Forevermore, the 2014-2015 ABS-CBN soap opera that propelled LizQuen to primetime success. In this hugely successful teleserye directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, Liza is Maria Agnes Calay, the humble daughter of strawberry farmers in La Presa, Benguet, while Enrique is Alexander “Xander” Grande III, the rebellious son of a hotel tycoon.
In a separate interview with YES!, Liza’s paternal aunt, Tita Joni Lyn Castillo, reveals that when Forevermore started taping, Liza was not comfortable working with Enrique: “No’ng Forevermore, sabi ko nga, ‘O, ayoko ng ligaw-ligaw, ha.’ Medyo na-off pa nga si Liza no’n kay Quen, pero sabi ko, ‘Paano kaya magwo-work nang maayos kung di kayo comfortable sa isa’t isa?’
So do’n sila nag-start mag-build ng friendship.”
Liza and Quen reunited with Direk Cathy some three years later to work on the 2017 romantic movie My Ex and Whys.
