Natalia Cortes-Smith and Leah Beltran are indeed two characters we will never forget in Playhouse. And as we watch the heartwarming teleserye’s final episodes, here are Maxene Magalona, who plays Natalia, and Isabelle Daza, who portrays Leah, bidding their characters goodbye and telling us some of the life lessons they have learned while doing their roles.
First off, Maxene and Isabelle tell us about their greatest learnings from the show’s narrative. For Maxene, never giving up and not losing hope in life are the most important lessons she learned. She says that she saw how having the right support group and being with the people you love will always enable a person to conquer even the most difficult challenges in life.
On the other hand, Isabelle shares that her greatest learning in the story is about having an unconditional love for one’s family especially to one’s children.
Next, Maxene and Isabelle tell us also about the things they learned from their characters. As Natalia, the main thing that Maxene learned is about self-love. She explains that behind Natalia’s ‘kikay’ personality on the outside, her character longs for love because she cannot accept and love herself enough. With this, Maxene realized that she must love herself more to be able to do the right things in life.
Meanwhile, what Isabelle learned about her character as Leah is to trust her intuitions. She observed that Leah lacks confidence or trust in herself and she always lets doubts dictate her actions. Isabelle expressed that this side of Leah is what she does not want her real life personality to have.
Lastly, these two amazing women give us their final message before the show ends. They hope that we also have learned important life lessons from Playhouse. They also expressed how grateful they are for all the love and support that their show has gained from its premiere to its upcoming finale.
Together, Maxene and Isabelle invite us to watch the final turn of events and see how Natalia and Leah’s respective journeys will end in the most exciting finale of Playhouse this Friday, March 22, before It’s Showtime.
