For the sequel of the novel, El Filibusterismo, Ibarra’s character left San Diego and when he returned, he introduced himself as Simoun, a jeweler. For this transformation, based on the article in GMA Entertainment, the Kapuso drama king prepared well, especially in staying true to Simoun’s physical appearance in the novel.

Mas gusto namin maging faithful doon sa libro kaya kung mapapansin niyo ganito ‘yung kulay ng buhok ni Simoun kasi ito ‘yung naka-depict doon sa libro,” Dennis Trillo shared.

Aside from the physical transformation, from Ibarra to Simoun, there was also a change when it comes to the character’s personality. The actor shared that even his dialogues in Spanish must change also.

Medyo eccentric kasi ‘yung character ni Simoun kahit doon sa mga Spanish niya na mga dialogue. Kung dati sinasabi ng aming coach na gawing monotonous [ang pananalita], ngayong naman mas gawing singsong para magkaroon ng konting variation at accent,” he shared.

Dennis Trillo also shared that he is excited to show to their viewers his character transformation. For the Maria Clara at Ibarra plot that extends to El Filibusterismo, the actor said that viewers will see Simoun’s revenge and his effort to correct the mistakes he did in the past.

There are new characters that will be introduced and some were gone already while some would come back. When it comes to Klay, the character played by Barbie Forteza, Dennis said, “Alam niyo naman si Klay medyo pakialamera sa mga pangyayari, gusto niyang baguhin yung kwento para maging maayos at walang masaktan na ibang tao.”
