Coming off from a career high after winning Best Actress in the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival for role in the entry Fan Girl, Charlie Dizon said she considers her series Viral Scandal as another milestone in her career because of the learning experiences on and off the set.

“Sobrang meaningful and sobrang memorable kasi tulad nung sinabi ko dun sa Fan Girl, ang dami kong ginawa dun na first time kong ginawa and also dito sa Viral Scandal ang dami kong natutunan din pati sa sarili ko. Ang dami kong na-experience na nakaka-challenge and masaya ako na sila yung mga nakasama ko during those times kasi sobrang giving lahat and sobrang passionate ng lahat,” she shared during the Viral Scandal finale mediacon.

As she continues to become known for her talent in acting, Charlie said she can look back on the series and be proud of the work she poured in as the lead character Rica Sicat.

“Ang laki din ng trinansform sa akin ng Viral Scandal. Feeling ko may nagbago sa akin talaga. I became stronger, mas naging open yung mind ko sa mga nangyari sa paligid, sa social issues. Masasabi ko na proud na proud ako na nagawa ko itong Viral Scandal and naging part ako ng show na ‘to at nakasama ko lahat ng kasama ko dito,” she admitted.

Charlie said she is also happy about the warm reception of netizens towards her love triangle with Joshua Garcia and Jameson Blake onscreen.

“Sobrang thankful ako na silang dalawa yung nakasama ko sa show. Si Jameson kasi nakasama ko na rin siya sa ibang shows. For Joshua ngayon ko lang siya naka-partner. Thankful ako na tinanggap talaga ng mga tao yung team up namin. Ang aming team Kyle at team Axle. Nakikita ko yung mga reactions sa Twitter, sa Instagram, Facebook, sa lahat. Grateful ako na nakasama ko sila and mababait talaga sila sa akin,” she revealed. 

As her character Rica and her family faced each challenge with courage in the series, Charlie hopes real-life Viral Scandal victims can also learn from the issues tackled in the show.

“Dahil sa pamilya Sicat, pinakita na grabe yung support system na pinakita nila kay Rica. Kumbaga, kahit anong mangyari, kahit nagkagulo din yung pamilya namin, kami kami pa rin yung magkakasama in the end. With every victim, na-a-apektuhan din yung buong environment ng victim and dun ka din makakakuha ng support system. Yung kahit anong mangyayari sila at sila pa rin yung babalikan mo. For Rica, masuwerte siya na yung pamilya Sicat ay sinuportahan siya at binuhos yung pagmamahal sa kanya lalo na nung mga times na nahihirapan sila,” she explained.

Gusto ko kumbaga laging tumatatak yung bawat project na gagawin ko. Yun yung gusto kong mangyari sana and kung papalarin sana ibigay,” she added.
