Beauty queen-actress Maria Isabel Lopez reveals a seldom-seen side of the late filmmaker Celso Ad. Castillo.

“Few people know that he was also a painter and a sculptor,” Lopez says. “He made a sculpture called ‘Dalawang Isabel,’ which depicts two women from his films: Isabel of ‘Isla’ and Isabel in ‘Ang Pinakamagandang Hayop sa Balat ng Lupa’ (played by Gloria Diaz).”

He was a gentleman and very romantic, Lopez says. “On the set of ‘Isla,’ he sent haranistas to serenade me on my birthday.”

She visited Castillo’s wake in Siniloan, Laguna, on Wednesday, with Liz Alindogan, who starred in Castillo’s unreleased ’80s film “The Diary of Vietnam Rose.” Funeral is on December 5, says his son Christopher Ad. Castillo.—Bayani San Diego Jr.
