YES! (Philippines) - - Cover Story -

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.
