Viewers of La Luna Sangre were surprised when the character of Maricar Reyes was suddenly killed off in the ABS-CBN prime-time series.
This led to speculations that she is pregnant with her first child with Richard Poon whom she married in June 2013.
When asked if she is pregnant, Maricar told ABS-CBN News, "No. I'm sorry. Hindi pa. We're still waiting and we're still trying. Abangan and keep praying for us."
In the fantaserye, the Kapamilya actress played Samantha, the half-sister of Richard Gutierrez's character Sandrino.
During the November 7 episode, Sandrino killed Samantha after calling her a traitor. Sam was a vampire who wanted to protect the chosen one, Malia (played by Kathryn Bernardo).
"Nagampanan niya iyong role niya," explained Maricar when asked about the sudden death of her character.
"She's really just there to serve, protect iyong bagong itinakda."
Maricar considers her Samantha character as one of her favorites even though she she was with La Luna Sangre for only two months.
"Ang saya niya kasi she's good and bad. Hindi siya squeaky clean, hindi rin siya super bad so puwedeng may laro doon. It's a nice break from the drama."
In her Instagram account, Angel Locsin (who plays Jacintha in the show) expressed her gratitude for Maricar by posting their photo and writing in the caption:
"Late man sa pag post bilang nasa byahe, pero hindi pwedeng hindi kita ma-congratulate sa napahusay mong pag ganap bilang Samantha, @maricareyespoon :) sa puso namin, buhay na buhay si Samantha mamimiss ko ang “tha-tha” tandem promise (This was taken after taping our last scene together in #LaLunaSangre"
