Do you still remember Clara and Natoy?
Tubig at Langis was a hit afternoon drama for many reasons. From serious confrontations to sinful infidelity, the controversial 2016 series affected its viewers in almost every emotional way. And who could deny that part of the credit for the show’s success goes to the hot chemistry of Zanjoe Marudo who played Natoy and Isabelle Daza who portrayed Clara.
No matter how hard Irene (Cristine Reyes) fought for love, Clara was desperate to steal Natoy. So, it is no surprise that many of series’ highlights include passionate moments between Clara and Natoy as she attempts to win him over. There were forbidden kisses, secret meetings and even a love scene! In the end, however, Natoy still chose his wife Irene.
Since then, Isabelle has taken a break from show business. In September 2016, the actress finally tied the knot with Adrien Semblat. In April 2018, she gave birth to their first child Balthazar Gabriel. By November, she is ready for her comeback and who else is her love interest?
Once again, Isabelle and Marlon find themselves showing off their on-screen chemistry! Luckily, this time around as Leah and Marlon in Playhouse, they do not have to be so secretive about their relationship.
Isabelle’s entrance on the morning series was marked by a paper pinwheel. The toy symbolizes the friendship that they previously shared which started after he defended her from bullies. Her timing was also perfect because she arrived right when Patty (Angelica Panganiban) had met Doc Harold (Carlo Aquino). Marlo needed to move on and she was standing right beside him.
Isabelle and Zanjoe’s tandem works so well together, there is a chance that Playhouse would not be their last project together!
