“It was a big surprise also to me. They told me it was going to happen only few days before taping the scene. Yeah, it was really heartbreaking but as I always tell my fans, when a door closes, I’m confident that another one will open. And it’s not the end of the world, I’m sure a next project will come,” Gabbi said.
Although heartbroken from her character’s death, the actress said that she still wishes for the show’s continuous success. “I’m actually happy that even though I’m out of the show na, we’re still in contact to bond with the cast.”
Furthermore, Gabbi said that her departure from Sherlock Jr. gave her more time for herself and other projects she wants to focus on. “I’m able to do more stuff now, like rehearse and perform for Manila NeXt festival, I get to travel, and do my own personal work outside the teleserye scene. So I’m really happy about that. Kasi I’m not only focused on teleserye lang naman, I try to reach and expand naman outside.”
