This week, the truth will set everyone free as Love You Stranger concludes the enthralling story about the legend of a shadow creature called Lilom.
Bannered by real-life couple Gabbi Garcia and Khalil Ramos in their first-ever primetime TV series together, the GMA Public Affairs’ miniseries has kept viewers hooked on the plot that merges mystery and romance with folklore and filmmaking.
“It will be more and more exciting. Abangan n’yo na kasi mayroong hindi inaasahang mangyayari sa finale week ng Love You Stranger na kahit ako, personally, nawindang noong nabasa ko yung last week na script. So I’m really excited for the reaction of the viewers,” shared Gabbi, who plays the role of LJ.
Khalil, as Direk Ben, also added that the viewers are bound to get the answers to their questions during the finale week. “Abangan nila kung paano mangyayari ang pagtatapos ng Love You Stranger, ang napakalaking finale. Mayroong mangyayari na malaking magbibigay talaga ng pagbabago sa buhay ng lahat ng characters.”
“That’s what I love about this show – [the plot is] very unexpected,” expressed Gil Cuerva who portrays Tristan. “You can tell that with the reaction ng fans. Pati sila nabibigla. For example, yung pag-twist sa character arc ni Tristan. I feel like this is a show with a lot of depth.”
The series has earned praises for its storyline, cinematography, as well as the acting performances of its cast –including Gil’s portrayal of his character.
