Veteran actress Boots Anson Roa looked back on the mark that renowned actor Ronaldo Valdez left in the film industry, having worked with him countless times, with one project being the most recent and one of the last that the actor worked on before his tragic death.

During the press conference for “Good Game (GG): The Movie,” Anson-Roa commemorated the memory of the veteran actor and stressed that the people should celebrate his significant contribution to the industry instead of just grieving for him.


“Kung wala po itong jigsaw puzzle part na ‘to, hindi po ito mako-kumpleto, itong pelikula. We are referring to the late Ronaldo Valdez. This is not the time to mourn his death, but the time, I think, for us to enjoy, all of you, to celebrate the illustrious and meaningful life that he led as an actor,” she said. 


“And as a member of the industry, remember him with fondest thoughts and a lot of respect for his filmography and his great contribution to the industry by way of his work,” added Anson-Roa.

The award-winning actress mentioned the nature of Valdez’s goofing around on set and with his co-actors, joking that he might be there looking after them.

“So, our loss is Heaven’s gain, pero if I know Ronaldo, mahilig pong mang-kengkoy ‘yun sa pelikula eh. Lahat tayo na-experience ‘yan eh. Baka nandidito lang ‘yan sa palipaligid, baka mamaya gulatin niya tayo,” she said. 

Anson-Roa noted how loving the late actor was on-screen, mentioning that they were the “KathNiel” (loveteam of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla) or the “LizQuen” (loveteam of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil) of their time.

“Lover sa maraming pelikula. 1974 pa po gumagawa na kami ng pelikula ni Ronaldo. Kami yung mga Kathniel nung araw, mga LizQuen. Pero iba yung mga love teams nung araw kesa ngayon,” shared the actress. 

“Good Game (GG): The Movie” is one of the last projects that Valdez worked on before his passing. In the film, Anson-Roa plays the estranged wife of the actor. Despite not sharing many scenes in the project, the actress shared that they have been together during the pre-production and noted that the team dedicates the movie to him.
