This announcement broke the rumors that the love team will break-up this year due to the network’s decision to split them up. To date, there is no word yet on what the plot of the teleserye and the film will be but we’re definitely excited to see Liza rise up from withdrawing from ‘Darna!’
Here are the lists of Lizquen’s projects throughout the years:
Set in La Presa, Benguet, Liza played Agnes, the beautiful and hardworking daughter of a strawberry farmer. She later crossed paths with the rich and handsome Alexander “Xander” Grande III, who crashed into Agnes’ strawberry truck while base jumping. Xander was then forced to do an immersion at Agnes’ town, which became the gateway to a budding romance between them.
Just The Way You Are
Their first movie was based on the Wattpad novel The Bet, where Liza and Enrique played the characters of Sophia and Drake, respectively. For the movie, Liza had to be deglamorized—complete with braces and bangs. With her looks, Sophia became Drake’s subject of ridicule. A bet would then make their hearts beat for each other.
Everyday, I Love You
In this movie, Liza played an aspiring TV host who had to give up her dreams for her boyfriend, played by Gerald Anderson. Gerald later met an accident and fell into a coma, which paved the way for Liza to meet Enrique’s character. Problems arose when Liza started falling for Enrique, along with Gerald suddenly waking up from the coma.
Liza and Enrique welcomed 2016 with the teleserye Dolce Amore. Liza played Serena, a rich, Filipina girl who was adopted by an Italian Father. Finding herself stuck in an arranged marriage with Giancarlo (Matteo Guidicelli), she ran away to the Philippines. There, she met Tenten (Enrique Gil), a hardworking Tondo boy.
My Ex and Whys.
LizQuen love team went back to the movies when they top-billed Star Cinema’s Valentine offering, My Ex and Whys. In May 2018, they were crowned as the box office King and Queen for 2017 during the 49th Box-Office Entertainment Awards given by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation.
In March 2018, Liza and Enrique’s fantasy-themed series Bagani premiered on television. The two were only supposed to do special roles on the show’s pilot week, but ABS-CBN management later decided to make them the lead stars of the show and extend their characters Ganda and Lakas, respectively.
2019 Philippine romantic drama film which follows the love story of Christine (Soberano) and Raf (Gil), who cross paths again eight years after they first met during their college years.
