Senate resolution congratulates Kylie Versoza for best actress award in prestigious Dubai fest
Senator Manuel “Lito” Lapid on Tueday filed a Senate resolution congratulating actress Kylie Verzosa for winning the best actress award at the prestigious 2022 Distinctive International Arab Festivals Awards (DIAFA) in Dubai for her performance in the movie “The Housemaid.”
The beauty queen-turned-actress was hailed for her exemplary portrayal of the character “Daisy” in the Filipino adaptation of the 2010 South Korean thriller of the same title, which tells the story of a maid who was hired by a rich family to take care of their daughter.
Under Lapid’s P.S. Res. No. 314, the senator recognized the outstanding performance of Verzosa and noted that it “deserves high praise and commendation for bringing honor and pride to our country by showing the world that the Filipino prowess in the art of acting can compete on a global level.”
“Dapat lang na bigyang parangal ang mga aktor gaya ni Kylie Verzosa sa kanilang mga pambihirang pagganap na nagpapakita sa buong mundo ng husay at galing ng mga Pilipino sa sining ng pag-arte. Ang ipinapakitang de-kalidad at namumukod-tanging pagganap ng ating mga aktor at aktres ay karapat dapat na kilalanin dahil sa kanilang mga naiuwing karangalan sa bansa sa pamamagitan ng pagkakamit ng mga prestihiyosong awards,” said Lapid, who himself used to be an actor.

Verzosa accepted her best actress trophy during an awarding ceremony last November 5.
In her Instagram post, the actress said the award was a dream come true moment for her, adding that it was an honor to have represented the country once again.
