Barbie Forteza downplays being the lead actress in the soon-to-be concluded series Meant To Be.
The 19-year-old actress believes that the success of the show was a team effort, especially with the help of her four leading men—Ken Chan, Jak Roberto, Addy Raj, and Ivan Dorschner.
“Ito namang show na ito ay hindi lang naman talaga sa akin,” said Barbie in an interview after the thanksgiving press conference of the show on June 14.
“Ito ay dahil sa mga napakahuhusay na poste ng show.
“Kaya sobrang honored and thankful ako na pinagkalooban ako ng GMA ng napakagandang proyekto.
“Talagang walang tapon sa buong cast, lahat pinag-isipan.”
Who would Barbie pick as her love team partner in future projects?
“Sa ngayon kasi, wala pa rin pong inilalatag na next project for me.
“Pero kung sakali mang makatrabaho ko ang isa sa kanila, wala na pong kaso sa akin yun.
“Lahat po sila ay nakatrabaho ko na and wala naman pong naging problema.”
She pointed out, however, that if she's given a chance, “Gusto ko rin naman mag-grow as an actress and work with other actors.”
Speaking of growing as an actress, the award-winning Mariquina actress hopes that she has satisfied the viewers of Meant To Be with her performance.
She added, “Sana hindi ako matandaan ng tao bilang malanding tao na may apat na manliligaw.
“Sana maalala ako bilang versatile actress na kayang magdala ng apat na love teams.”
Barbie said she has yet to choose who should be Billie's ultimate “ka-Meant To Be” from her four leading men.
She said, “Mahirap magsalita kasi parang masyado nilang ginalingan ang paghahati-hati ng personalities ng apat, na parang mahirapan talaga na mamili kahit as Barbie.
“Sa ngayon, wala akong nakikitang dapat piliin ni Billie kasi lahat sila ay pantay-pantay.”
An online poll is ongoing for viewers to help Billie choose her “ka-Meant To Be”
The combined results of this poll and the final discussion of the show's producers will determine the ultimate “ka-Meant To Be” of Billie, which will be announced on the series finale this Friday, June 23.
