Barbie Forteza Reacts To Allegations That She “Carries” Loveteam w/ David Licauco

Barbie Forteza and David Licauco’s loveteam receives overwhelming support

Kapuso actress Barbie Forteza reacted to allegations that she is the one carrying her loveteam with actor David Licauco.

Barbie and David‘s tandem was first known as FiLay which was based on their characters Fidel and Klay in the Kapuso series Maria Clara at Ibarra. Their unexpected pairing gained the viewers’ attention. Now, their loveteam is called BarDa.

Because of that success, they were given more projects together. They did the series Maging Sino Ka Man and the movie That Kind of Love. Barbie and David will also star in the upcoming series Pulang Araw.

In a recent interview, based on the article in PEP, Barbie Forteza commended David Licauco. She said that her onscreen partner has expressive eyes and he can navigate this in playing his character.

“And sa lahat ng proyekto namin, kada project na ginagawa namin, nakikita ko yung confidence and comfortability niya na umarte. Di ba?” she said. She also said that even though David has a shy personality, on set, he shows a different side of him.

Barbie also said that she saw David’s growth and she can say that he is now more comfortable in acting. “Sa mga projects na kinukuha niya, very mindful din siya. Kasi, alam na niya yung image na pinanghahawakan niya, e,” she added.

The actress also addressed the issue that she is the one who is “bumubuhat” of their loveteam. Barbie said that hearing this kind of allegation makes her sad because the purpose of being called a “loveteam” is being ignored.

She pointed out that a loveteam will not work out if one person is the only one working for it. “Siguro mas napapansin lang ng mga tao, kasi mas ako yung nagsasalita, di ba? Obviously!” Barbie Forteza quipped, adding that they are both promoting their movie and they are making the same effort for their project because they both benefit from this.
