The long wait is over: 

Barbie and David are back for the action-packed series “Maging Sino Ka Man” 



“To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.”


Witness the versatility of Kapuso Primetime Princess Barbie Forteza and Pambansang Ginoo David Licauco, as they explore action adventures and romantic moments in GMA Network’s remake of the hit movie, “Maging Sino Ka Man.”


The phenomenal love team of Barbie and David steps out of their comfort zones and portrays unique and iconic roles in the highly-anticipated TV adaptation.


Beginning September 11, follow the story of Monique and Carding who came from two different worlds—one is an heiress of a business empire whose life is in danger, while the other is a petty thief who looks after orphans. 


The two are fated to meet and discover a common past that could either build or tear them apart. How will Monique and Carding turn each other’s world upside down? 


The breakthrough pairing will surely bring swoon-worthy nights to viewers once again. But this time, fans will be seeing more of their irresistible sense of humor and heart-pounding action stunts.


Barbie even shared her preparations for the series where she will play dual roles as Monique, a passionate artist and as Dino, her boyish disguise. “I watched one of my favorite actresses, Hilary Swank, to get a reference for the role of Dino. Then I thought of making Monique more sophisticated and liberated to emphasize the difference between the two characters. I always like to challenge myself into making my characters more complex yet relatable and full of depth,” said Barbie.


David also highlighted how challenging it is to portray Carding, “Hindi naman ako nahirapan sa action scenes because I always work out and I’m an athlete. Pero ‘yung memorization of action scenes, it’s not that easy. Also, sanay ako na palaging mayaman ang roles ko, but with Carding, talagang 180 degrees turn around siya. Kaya ‘yun ang naging challenge sakin.”


Meanwhile, Barbie admitted to feeling nervous yet excited about this big project. According to her, “I am honored and grateful to have been entrusted with a remake of such an iconic film. It’s a good kind of pressure because my characters are tweaked to fit me, so I’m looking forward to seeing the outcome of our show.” 


David, on the other hand, tries to take it day by day and just does his best all the time. “I feel grateful to GMA for this opportunity. This all happened because of ‘Maria Clara At Ibarra,’ so I just want to thank Direk Zig Dulay and everyone who believed in me. And now it’s ‘Maging Sino Ka Man’ with Barbie. It’s always such a treat to work with her. Gusto ko ring pasalamatan ‘yung fans. Because of them, nakuha ko ang role na ito.”
