Following her star-studded 90th birthday celebration last December, Gloria Romero was again greeted by a gathering of industry personalities who paid tribute to the Philippine film and television icon.

On Wednesday, Feb. 28, co-celebrities of the veteran actress gathered at the Manila Hotel to give tribute to Romero. The gathering was initiated by her good friend and fellow actress Daisy Romualdez. 


In a report by TV Patrol, the movie queen was seen so moved by the presence of her industry friends, with some of them serenading her and others offering throwback stories about her. 


In her exclusive interview by MJ Felipe, the veteran actress expressed how overjoyed she was for having been celebrated by her fellow actors, friends and family members. She stressed that she missed all of them.

“Salamat nang maraming marami. I miss all of them. Imagine how old I am now. Do you know how much?” she asked.

“Maraming mga family na nagmamahal sa akin. They take care of me, lalo na yung anak ko’ng si Marites,” the movie icon added. 

The event, hosted by Butch Francisco, was enlivened by touching performances from Vina Morales, Christian Bautista, Mark Bautista, Marisa Sanchez, Jeffrey Hidalgo, Carol Banawa, Dulce and Romero’s grandson Chris.

Amy Perez and Boy Abunda also came on stage to share their stories about the award-winning actress. Others in attendance included industry luminaries Divina Valencia, Marissa Delgado, Pepito Rodriguez, Liza Lorena, Nova Villa, Boots Anson Roa-Rodrigo, Tessie Villarama, Imelda Ilanan and Tina Loy. 

As attested by the tribute, Romero’s contribution to the entertainment industry is indeed imprinted not just on the people who are close to her but also on her admirers who had the opportunity to witness the movie icon’s remarkable presence on screen.
