Meanwhile, Poe expressed gratitude to GMA for giving her “a heart full of memories,” as she showed a photo of herself on her Instagram page today.

“Hindi po biro ang 15 years (15 years is not a joke). I would like to thank GMA for taking a chance on this unknown dreamer; for believing in me and supporting me all these years,” she addressed the network.
