Seeing stars in San Sebastian
Nothing can stop a determined woman. Filipino actress Mara Lopez vowed to take as many snapshots with Hollywood celebrities as she could at the recently concluded San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain. Between screenings, she bumped into English actor Charlie Heaton, a cast member of the Netflix series “Stranger Things.” “Charlie was super cute!”
On the red carpet, before the closing ceremony on Sept. 30, Mara scored selfies with two respected stars of the American stage and screen: Christian Slater and Glenn Close. “They were all super nice and friendly. I just went up to them and said hi!”
Meanwhile, a regional paper mistakenly identified Mara as a “US actress.” But that’s another story. —BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.
