Playing the role of a young woman with a rare condition called xeroderma pigmentosum in the latest iWantTFC Original Series My Sunset Girl, Charlie Dizon’s character Ciara can never be exposed to sunlight.

Pag napanuod niyo yung My Sunset Girl madami ding makaka-relate dun kasi si Ciara in her case matagal siyang hindi nakakalabas ng bahay and lately with what’s happening sa atin sa mundo, ang dami ring hindi nakakalabas ng bahay because of quarantine and this pandemic. And ang daming makaka-relate sa part na yun. Ang dami nilang hindi na-e-experience sa labas and of course yung social media madaming nakilala doon because of this quarantine, mga ganun,” she shared.

Having grown up with overprotective parents as well, Charlie revealed the reason she only joined showbiz after finishing her studies. “Personally kasi yung mommy ko overprotective talaga. Parang ang tagal din bago niya ako pinayagan dito sa showbiz, bago ako pinayagan lumabas labas, ganyan. Kumbaga madami din akong hindi nagagawa dahil sa limitations ko because sobrang overprotective nga din ng mom ko. pero siguro more than that, yun lang yung nakaka-relate din ako,” she admitted.

Charlie said she does not take it against her parents for being strict on her growing up.

“Actually sobrang thankful ko na ganun yung parents ko sa akin. Dati kasi nung time na nag-ta-try ako mag-artista, sobrang pinu-push ng mom ko na magtapos muna ako ng pag-aaral. Sobrang ayaw niya ako pag-artistahin noon. Hanggang sa maka-graduate ako tapos sakto din yung pasok ko sa ABS-CBN. Kaya sabi ko lahat nangyayari dahil may dahilan and I’m thankful na sila yung nag-guide sa akin talaga and lumaki ako ng ganito,” she said.
