After starring in movies like Fan Girl and Four Sisters Before the Wedding last year, Charlie Dizon starts off the year with another exciting new project with iWanTFC called Horrorscope which pairs her with Fino Herrera whom she first worked with on Parasite Island.

“Willing ako makatrabaho ulit si Fino kasi hindi naman yun yung first time na natgrabaho kami and nag-click talaga kami. Kumabaga yung work ethics din niya and kung paano yung rapport namin kaya okay ako na ka-work si Fino,” she said.

After winning the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) Best Actress award, Charlie admitted she does not know yet what her next career move should be.

“Actually hindi ko talaga alam. Hindi pa namin napag-uusapan. Pero abangan natin. Sana magsunod-sunod na rin yung projects kasi gusto ko na rin ulit magtrabaho. Hindi ko pa naiisip yun (maging sexy star) pero gusto ko lang sabihin na naniniwala ako sa management kung ano yung makakaganda sa akin,” she said.

With almost all TV and movie projects undergoing lock-in tapings, Charlie said she is not one to complain with all the extra safety protocols put into place.

Ang naisip ko agad nun napaka-suwerte ko na may nagbibigay ng trabaho during nung pandemya kasi yun yung time na ang tagal ng lahat nawalan ng trabaho and ang tagal nag-stay sa bahay. So lahat talaga nung time na yun tinatanggap ko and nung nakita ko yung character description pa lang and nung nag-script reading kami nakita ko na maganda talaga yung gagawin namin na episode. Nakita ko rin gaano ka-hands on ni direk Ato (Bautista) kahit dun sa script reading pa lang. So nakita ko na maganda yung vision niya para sa project. So yun din yung nakapag-pa-oo sa akin kahit mahirap yung lock-in taping ng pandemic. Pero sobrang saya kasi kapag nasa lock-in taping kasi nagiging totoo yung chemstry lalo ng actors and mas focused lahat. Hindi lang yung actors, pati yung mga staff parang mas focused ang lahat sa ginagawa nila kahit isang araw lang kami nag-taping nun,” she explained.

Playing a rookie cop in Horroscope, Charlie said she can relate to her character’s strengths and weaknesses. “Kabahin akong tao pero mas nananaig pa rin yung tapang. So mas gusto ko pa rin na malaman agad yung totoo. Kasi from there mas makakaisip ako ng plano kung ano yung dapat gawin or mas makaka-move on ako. Pero kung mabuti naman yung katotohanan, eh di mas okay na tanggapin na lang,” she said.

In real life, Charlie says she is not the type to believe in horoscopes. “Kapag nababasa ko maganda naniniwala ako. Pero pag hindi dine-deadma ko agad (laughs),” she added.
