ABS-CBN’s Chief Content Officer and Maalala Mo Kaya host Charo Santos-Concio admitted that she shot a movie with award winning director Lav Diaz.
Lav recently directed the film Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis, that won the Silver Bear award during this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.
When asked to confirm the project during the press conference for Maalala Mo Kaya’s 25th anniversary kick-off, Charo said, “Yes, it’s true” without hesitation, sharing that she just finished doing the movie which is entitled, Ang Babaeng Humayo.
How does it feel to be back in acting?
Sharing that the movie is part of the Cinema One Film Festival, Charo answered that she had so much fun.
“When he came back from Berlin, he asked me if I would reconsider going back to acting and I said, ‘yeah, why not? If there’s a good offer, no? If it’s an interesting character’ and parang two days after the talk, he sent me a script and ‘nung binasa ko, nagustuhan ko siya,” Charo, who also revealed they shot the movie for 10 days.
While the rest of the details like the other actors will be disclosed in a separate press conference in July, Star Creatives’ Chief Operating Officer Malou Santos assured everyone, “Definitely, you’ll see a new Charo at magugulat kayo sa role na ginampanan niya.”
Meanwhile, when asked if there will be a chance for Charo to return to acting fulltime, the President of ABS-CBN University and executive adviser to ABS-CBN’s Chairman replied, “I just go with the flow, I don’t really plan. I don’t plan anything parang whatever the universe offers me now, if my heart and my gut think it’s the right thing to do and I will have fun and I will have a great adventure then I’m open to it. It’s not a conscious decision… I really just go with the flow.”
