Actress Rita Avila left ABS-CBN's "Walang Hanggan" because of health reasons, according to her co-star/actress Dawn Zulueta..
She said that Avila had to undergo therapy for her spine problem.
“Ang alam ko, when I asked her about it, she said that she had a problem in her spine and she needed to do more therapy. Because of the hectic schedule of taping, she’s unable to do her therapy regularly," she said.
"From what I understood, she was coming to work in pain. 'Yun lang ang reason kung bakit umalis siya sa show," she added.
In the said teleserye, Avila played the character of Jane Montenegro, the wife of Marco Montenegro (Richard Gomez), who's still in love with Zuleta's character, Emily Guidotti.
Avila's character, however, died unexpectedly in a plane crash.
On the microblogging site Twitter, she thanked all those who continue to support “Walang Hanggan,” promising that the plot will continue to thicken even after the death of her character in the series.
“Abangan niyo pa ‘yung iniwan ni Jane kay Marco. Handa na kayo ng oxygen, pampakalma, chamomile tea,” she told her Twitter followers.
