MANILA -- Now it can be told: Actress Maricar Reyes got hurt while taping a fight scene with Daniel Padilla for ABS-CBN's hit primetime series "La Luna Sangre."

According to the actress' husband, Richard Poon, Reyes sprained her right foot while shooting a scene as Samantha, a vampire who views her immortality as a curse.
 
“I feel happy kasi siyempre noong lumabas siya, grabe nag-trending siya. Pati sa akin nag-me-message 'yung mga tao na ang ganda ni Maricar na nakaputi siya. Siyempre search naman ako. Hindi ako real time, pero siyempre kinukuwento niya. Pero hindi ko alam kung ano ang scene na lalabas. By the time na nag-trend siya, hindi naman ako real time na nanunuod, siyempre hinanap ko na until nakita ko 'yung scene na may baril siya,” he said.

"It's nice to watch her, although disturbing for me siguro for ilang weeks, four or five weeks, kasi she got injured. Hindi naman alam ng madlang people so we kept it. Alangan namang sabihin ko na napilay ang wife ko nung ginawa niya 'yung stunt scene. Pero ang hirap sa bahay kasi iika-ika siya. Kapag lumabas kami ang hirap, hindi ba? So 'yun lang medyo I had to take care of her.

"Tapos nag-bruise din siya sa likod, so 'yun ang iniingatan, kailangang i-make up 'yon. 'Yun ang iniisip ko sa asawa ko when I'm thinking of 'La Luna.' Pero very fortunate may kaibigan ako sa production, so sila ang nagsasabi sa akin na 'yung asawa mo okay naman.' There are people taking care of her," Poon narrated.
 
Because of the injury Reyes had to wear flats taping for her next scenes for the series.

"Kung mapapansin ng viewers, there was a time na puro naka-flats si Samantha kasi hindi ko talaga kaya," Reyes shared.

Samantha eventually was killed by Sandrino (Richard Gutierrez), her half-brother.
