Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Gabby sa viewing party ng K-Love nitong January 26, 2023, sa Nokal Manila bar sa Makati City.
Pahayag nito sa pagtatapos ng nasabing series, "I'm still trying to absorb the fact that we did this whole project and then, we're finally here so still, very surreal.
"But I'm very proud of the work that we have done for it.
"And it's nice to kind of culminate this whole thing, all the work that we did and to celebrate together. So [I'm] just in a happy, celebratory mode, you know."

WORKING WITH THE BEST
Maituturing ni Gabby na isa ang K-Love sa malalaking proyektong ginawa nito bilang isang artista.
Kasama ni Gabby sa digital series ang Kapamilya stars na sina Iza Calzado, Isabelle Daza, Sue Ramirez, at Jake Cuenca.
Ito rin ang unang beses na makakatrabaho ni Gabby ang Viu Philippines Head of Originals na si Corinna Vistan na dating Marvel studios executive.
Masaya si Gabby makatrabaho ang ilan sa mga kilalang pangalan sa industriya at masasabi rin nitong isa ito sa mga dahilan kung bakit ito napa-oo sa proyekto.
Aniya, "A lot of the time, when I choose a project, yung nasa isip ko talaga is when I really want to work with a certain person, whether it would be a co-actor or a director.
"And in this case, I have worked with Viu before for Still: The Series, and I really enjoyed my experience with them.
"Of course, Miss Corinna coming with all of what she has under her belt, working with Marvel, and just the kind of work that she has been able to do, and representing the Philippines in that way, I really wanted to work with her.
"I really wanted to work with our writers, and Ate Iza, I've never worked with her before. At least, not directly.
"So ayun, it's a combination of the people that I look up to and, finally, have the opportunity to work with."
Bukod sa experience, ang mga friendships na nabuo ni Gabby sa K-Love ang babaunin nito sa pagtatapos ng digital series.
Sabi nito, "I'm happy to say that even after the whole experience, we remained friends and really closely knit na friend group so that's what I'm most grateful for."
Nang tanungin ng PEP.ph kung kanino ito naging close sa mga cast members, sinabi ni Gabby na mas napalapit siya kina Sue at Iza.
Bahagi nito, "Si Sue, siguro, at saka si Ate Iza kasi isang bahay kami. Si Ate Belle kasi, she had her own home because she brought her kids to the lock-in shoot.
"But because Sue and Ate Iza and I were all in the same house, sobrang naging bonded kami so I would say them."
Nagpapasalamat si Gabby dahil naging instant ate nito si Iza, na isa sa mga tinitingala nitong aktes.
Ayon kay Gabby, marami itong natutunan kay Iza kahit na nag-oobserba lang ito sa sa kanya sa tuwing sila ay magkaeksena.
"Si Ate Iza, she gives good advice but also at the same time, she leads by example. So just watching her, you learn so much.
"She's such a positive and very... she there's such a great energy about her.
"And just watching her be herself, you learn so much and you aspire to be that person one day, to be that actress one day. And I think that's what I learned from her."
Samantala, tuluy-tuloy na rin ang pagtawid ni Gabby sa mainstream media dahil kabilang din ito sa upcoming Viva movie na The Rain in España.
Kasama naman niya dito sina Heaven Peralejo, Marco Gallo, Gab Lagman, Bea Binene, at marami pang iba.
Excited na rin si Gabby na maipalabas ang nasabing pelikula, "I'm very excited to see how it turns out."
Dagdag nito, "The experience so far has been great. I'm just very excited. It's an exciting place to be. Alam mo yung the time before you really something? Ayun! Just really excited."
