As for her other co-stars, Rayver and Mike, Claire revealed how the two would often crack jokes on set.
“Si Kuya Mike naman po would give me tips din and would often times crack jokes and lagi po [siyang] inggit sa food ko. Si Kuya Rayver naman po lagi nagjo-joke kaya masaya kasama sa scene. I had good experiences with all of them and I am honored to have met them.”
