“Be Careful With My Heart” extended up to mid-2013!

Actress Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap said their hit series “Be Careful With My Heart” is the best gift they’ve received this year.

“Sa totoo lang, malaking regalo na rin ang pagkakataong naibigay sa amin na maging source of inspiration ng maraming tao. Sa palagay ko, hindi lang ang audience ang nai-inspire ng mga character namin dahil kami mismo, may natututunan sa kanila,” Sta. Maria said.

On Thursday, Yap and Sta. Maria confirmed that the airing of the undisputed No. 1 daytime series will be extended until middle of 2013. The DVD of the first parts of the series will also be out in December.

“Ang success ng ‘Be Careful With My Heart’ ay talagang blessing. We are blessed to have everything feel-good in the show,” Yap said.

“At malaki talaga ang pasasalamat namin sa suporta ng fans kung kaya’t gagawin namin ang lahat ng makakaya namin para pasayahin kayo araw-araw,” he added.

Aside from high ratings, the lead stars are also thankful for having found a new family.

“Yung friendship na nabuo sa aming show, hindi na lang kami basta magkaka-trabaho, naging magkakaibigan na kaming lahat,” Sta. Maria said.

On Thursday afternoon, the cast of “Be Careful With My Heart” had a thanksgiving mass.

“We are really thankful that’s why we are holding this thanksgiving mass kasi tinangkilik pa din kami ng mga tao and they are supporting us,” Yap said.

“Siyempre nagpapasalamat sa nasa itaas kasi kung hindi dahil sa kanya ay wala ang lahat ng ito,” Sta. Maria said.

Meanwhile, when asked about their plans for Christmas, Jodi and Richard said that they will spend it with their respective families.

“Plano kong makasama nang matagal ang wife ko at mga anak ngayong Holiday season para naman makabawi ako sa mga panahon na hindi ko sila nakasama dahil sa taping schedule namin,” Yap explained.

“Magbabakasyon rin kami sa ibang bansa. ‘Yun na ang Christmas (at) New Year treat ko para sa kanila,” said Sta. Maria who will be spending the yuletide season in Thailand.
