After airing of 16 weeks with a total of 80 episodes, My Destiny finale is on. My Destiny is a Filipino drama starring Carla Abellana, Tom Rodriguez in their lead roles, together with Sid Luceroand Rhian Ramos. It premiered last June 30, 2014 on GMA (Telebabad) Primetime Block.The series ended last October 17, 2014 with trending #MyDestinyFinale.
Last Thursday, we had our chance to visit Tom, Carla, Lorna and Al during their shooting at Dela Rosa's residence, Quezon city. We asked them on how they feel and what are the things they're gonna miss working with each others.
According to Carla, Malungkot syempre kasi it's another project na tatapusin namin, kailangang matapos. Kumbaga 'yung mga nakasanayan mong makasama, di mo na sila makikita uli or nang ganun kadalas.. di ka sure kung kelan mo sila ulit makakatrabaho. Mami-miss namin silang lahat. Mamimiss namin ang isa't-isa.
Tom shared that they will missed their kulitan moments on the set.
According to Al Tantay, he will miss most about the food on the set, especially "Yobob" (pa-lechon) and he'll also miss Ms. Lorna (dahil maingay sya).
According to Lorna, they also have "adlibs" during their taping which make their working relationship and ambiance more exciting.
We also asked them if they believe on Destiny;
According to Tom, he believes in Destiny. Before, everything that has happened in my life, actually I don't believe, parang I was the farthest away. 'Yung mga coincidence and synchronicity, it never happened. and then you wake up one day, and you realized what's happening in your life, lahat ng magaganda, lahat ng pangit na nangyari, masasakit, it's all being instrumental to lead you up to that point na kung nasan ka man ngayon, na sobrang saya mo, everything is in place, everything's click, kung may isang bagay na hindi nangyari dati, na wala kang natutunang lesson dun, or hindi mo napagdaanan, hindi ka mapupunta dun ngayon o bakit nasa ibang lugar ka. So lahat yun, it's all meant to lead you to one place kung saan ka dapat eh. so I believe, yeah. It's even more prevalent in my life. I think I'm in the middle of my destiny."
For Carla, "Ako naniniwala kasi may mga bagay sa buhay na hindi natin ma-explain, na magugulat na lang tayo kung papano nangyari 'yun, 'yung mga ganun, so may mga "meant to be." Yun yung mga bagay na di mo ma-explain na kahit labanan mo s'ya, dun at dun ka pa rin dadalhin. So there are some things na hindi natin ma-explain sa buhay, pero naniniwala ako sa destiny kasi kung ano 'yung dapat mangyari, mangyayari talaga. good man 'yan or bad, dadating ka doon."
And for the lessons that will learned from the show. "Kailangan kasi magsabi ka ng totoo eh. Kapag ang information na binibigay mo sa kapwa mo ay hindi totoo, ang babalik sa 'yo na reaction hindi rin totoo, so lalala nang lalala. Ganun 'yung nangyari eh," Al said, who plays Arnold, Grace and Joy's father.
Lorna also added, "Kahit gaano kasakit, sabihin na ang totoo. The earlier, the better."
According to Tom (Matthew), "The more you keep secrets, the more complicated things get. Parang naghukay ka ng sarili mong grave. It's a very nice lesson actually for the viewers to pick up kasi nakita nila kung ano ang posibleng mangyari if they keep up with that line of thinking. Kahit maganda ang intention mo, pero kung isisikreto mo pa rin, kasi minsan sinasabi natin na white lies will be okay, iba ang isusukling reaction kapag hindi niya alam ang totoo."
"Kasi may mga families na ganun in real life na they keep secrets from each other kasi natatakot sila baka masaktan. Mas tumatagal nang tumatagal, hinihintay pa nila kung kailan too late na para sabihin ang totoo. Sana umpisa pa lang, ginawa na nila." Carla answered.
My Destiny is really a big hits with all the lessons that viewers will get and to the casts that perfectly showed how Filipino family was. Congratulations to all the casts and staff of My Destiny.... Hoping for My Destiny part 2.
