After getting her start working as a production assistant at the Kapamilya network during pre-martial law days, Charo Santos-Concio has come a long way after more than four decades in the industry. From actress and producer to eventually becoming ABS-CBN president in 2008, Charo has learned a lot on her journey with the company which she shared in her Instagram post last March 4.
“I’ve been working since I was 20. To be honest, at first, it was just fulfilling my mom’s dream for me. I never thought I will have the most fulfilling job. Let me share with you some of my most valuable learnings:
- Always look for opportunities to learn in everything that you do.
- Always respect your co-workers or your teammates.
- Make sure to share your knowledge too. It’s the most fulfilling thing in the world.
- It may start as an obligation... but eventually, find that passion and reason that will make you want to work more.
- Love what you do. And enjoy the fruit of your hard work.”
Early last year, Charo shared that she had finished working on a movie project with Daniel Padilla called Whether the Weather is Fine which focuses on the experience of a mother and her son after the devastating aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda back in 2013.
The film, which is a joint project of Dreamscape, iWant, Quantum Films, Black Sheep, and Globe Studios along with international partners with studios from France, Singapore, Indonesia, and Germany, was originally scheduled for release last year and is directed by Carlo Francisco Manatad.
Now 65-years old, Charo first established herself as an actress after her performances in the 1977 Itim directed by Mike de Leon and in the 1990 film Gumapang Ka sa Lusak by Lino Brocka. Her last horror flick Eerie came out in 2018.
