BARBIE FORTEZA officially took her oath as one of the ambassadors of GMA Network’s Anti-Piracy campaign “Stream Responsibly. Fight Piracy.”

“I’m proud and honored to be part of such a responsible campaign,” she says. “Being an artist myself, it is important to have a campaign like this. 

"This validates the hard work of the people not only in front but behind the camera, who give their best efforts, day in and day out, to produce quality shows for our viewers.”  

Other Kapuso ambassadors for "Stream Responsibly. Fight Piracy." are “Voltes V: Legacy” stars Miguel Tanfelix, Ysabel Ortega, Matt Lozano, Radson Flores, Raphael Landicho, plus fellow Sparkle star Mikee Quintos.

The campaign aims to encourage viewers, especially the younger generation to give importance and value to the creative works of the people behind the series and films by watching them only from legitimate sources. 

It also aims to educate and raise awareness among the public about the potential harms of clicking pirated websites and apps.

Meantime, Barbie’s hit primetime drama series, “Maria Clara at Ibarra” is on its last week and Klay has succeeded in going back to the past. 

It will be recalled she has returned to modern times but she made an effort to be reunited with David Licauco as Fidel in “Maria Clara at Ibarra”.  

Barbie’s intention is to help rescue her friends so that they would not meet their sad endings which she has already read in “El Filibusterismo”. 

This time, she goes back in time fully prepared in her second journey to Spanish time in this well received GMA-7 historical fantasy-drama, well directed by Zig Dulay.     

She brings with her some items from the present times, like a cellphone, a first aid kid, cans of sardines, toiletries, a flashlight and some undies as she has found out in her “Noli Me Tangere” jaunt that women during the olden did not wear any panties. 

“Yes, the show is very exciting now that Book One is about to end,” adds Barbie. 

“Nakakatuwa nga kasi sobrang concerned ang mga fans kay Klay. Nakakatawa yung ibang comments nila, like nagdala ka nga ng cellphone, pero may dala ka bang charger? 

"That means ganoon sila ka-involved kay Klay at sa iba pang characters sa aming drama-series.” 

Don’t miss the final episode of “Maria Clara at Ibarra” on February 17.
