After the success of her lead role in the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival’s Fan Girl, Charlie Dizon took on another acting challenge this year in the new iWantTFC Original series My Sunset Girl. The 25-year-old actress said she is still getting used to being referred to as one of the most talented actresses of her generation.

“Hindi ko naman siya naririnig madalas na sinasabi sa akin and nakakakaba actually, nakaka-pressure din. Pero ako kasi sobrang grateful ko talaga sa lahat ng dumadating sa akin na opportunity. Ang tagal ko din itong inantay and ngayon talaga parang iniisip ko lang lagi na galingan sa lahat ng projects kasi nakakatakot kung kelan ulit mawawala. Yun talaga yung lagi kong iniisip,” she said.

The My Sunset Girl star shared that she values all the feedback she has been getting for her acting even after winning Best Actress at the MMFF and doing projects like Four Sisters Before the Wedding.

“Nakakalakas ng loob pag sinasabihan ako ng ganun. Feeling ko nakakadagdag siya ng confidence talaga and kinakabahan din ako, na-pe-pressure din, tao lang din ako. Pero sobrang grateful ko sa lahat ng opportunities na dumadating talaga,” she admitted.

One year after the ABS-CBN shutdown, Charlie also shared her feelings about her own experience with the Kapamilya network.

“Nakakalungkot talaga yung nangyari sa atin last year. Ako sobrang pangarap ko talaga makapasok sa ABS-CBN noon. Lagi kong sinasabi na tuwing nakikita ko yung building ng ABS-CBN noon kinakabahan ako every time na papasok ako. And nung nakita ko na nag-rally ang ganun yung nangyari, sobrang first time ko nakita na parang ganun ka-weak yung nangyari sa ABS-CBN and sobrang nalungkot ako nun. Pero eventually unti-unti tayong nakabangon, nakakagawa pa rin tayo ng project. Kahit wala tayong office ngayon tuloy-tuloy pa rin. Kumbaga tina-try pa rin maging normal pa rin yung mga trabaho and yun yung sobrang kinaka-proud ko sa ABS-CBN na talagang pinanindigan nila lahat ng trabahador nila, I mean hindi lahat pero lahat ng makakaya nilang gawin para sa lahat ginagawa nila,” she said.
