Christopher Roxas posts a throwback photo of the cast of the ABS-CBN '90s series Mara Clara that was top-billed by Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes.

Christopher Roxas took a trip down memory lane by posting an old black-and-white photo with the cast of ABS-CBN's defunct drama series Mara Clara.

He captioned his October 20 Instagram post, "The good old days..#maraclaradays #whereitallstarted"

Christopher's post was a publicity photo for the movie version of Mara Clara in 1996.

Seen in the photo are lead stars Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes, and fellow cast members Juan Rodrigo, Beverly Vergel, Eagle Riggs, Leni Santos, Dan Fernandez, Susan Africa, Minnie Aguilar, William Martinez, and Wowie De Guzman.

The 1996 movie version was dedicated to the late actor Eruel Tongco, who died in a car accident in 1995, in the middle of Mara Clara the series. William was tapped to play his character in the film.

Through this TV series, Christopher and Gladys first fell in love and eventually got married.

The couple recently worked with each other in GMA-7's recently-concluded rom-com series Inday Will Always Love You.

Mara Clara is considered as ABS-CBN's longest-running drama series, which had a successful five-year run from 1992 to 1997.

Judy Ann Santos portrayed the kind-hearted Mara, while Gladys played the evil Clara.

In 2010, the Kapamilya Network tagged the original series as "Ina ng Pinoy Soap Opera." That same year, the remake was aired starring Kathryn Bernardo as Mara and Julia Montes as Clara.

In 2016, the original cast of Mara Clara had a reunion that was hosted by Judy Ann and Gladys.
