Maria Clara at Ibarra leading lady Barbie Forteza has been an actress since she was 12 years old, so it makes sense that a lot of her childhood memories are related to the entertainment industry. For example, Barbie's first flight abroad was actually a work trip to Japan for the drama series The Half Sisters. Similarly, Barbie's first expensive splurge and first makeup product were also must-haves for her beauty kit as an up-and-coming artist. Even one of her closest childhood friends today is a fellow Kapuso she met on the set of her very first television commercial!
