More exciting roles for Vilma Santos sought
Jennifer Cabrera, government employee: “I’m a big fan of Vilma Santos, but I feel that she can still do a lot more as an actress. I like her when she portrays roles that are far from her real-life persona, or when she’s deglamorized—like her character in Jeffrey Jeturian’s ‘Ekstra.’ My role suggestions: an aging rock star, a Metro aide or a tough lesbian!”
Bernie Dagarag, businessman: “I am rooting for Nyoy Volante on ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar.’ He has undergone the most complex transformations—and passed with flying colors!”
Carmencita Fernandez: “Movies and TV soaps have a responsibility to elevate viewers’ moral and social awareness. I’ve heard about plans to remake ‘Dyesebel’ and ‘Marimar,’ a Mexican soap reeking with colonial upper-class mentality. These are already passé.”
“Why can’t they produce contemporary productions with relevant messages, instead? We have innovative scriptwriters who can come up with original ideas—no more adaptations and remakes, please!”
Meanne Mijares, events planner: “Bullying is unacceptable, and seeing Vice Ganda stand up against it is truly impressive. He’s using his popularity in a good way, by telling people to accept their flaws, be comfortable with themselves and be the best they can be!”
Phil Gatmaitan, student: “Ginger Conejero was a visual and aural delight as one of the hosts of the Miss Philippines Earth pageant. She speaks clearly and doesn’t call attention.”
