“Dati kahit dialogue ng kapwa ko artista alam ko, ngayon may part sa utak ko na nakakalimot. Kasi ‘yon ang inoff kong part ng brain ko (while I was portraying a character afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease).'”
This was according to actress Sylvia Sanchez, who admitted that she has yet to recover from playing Gloria in the defunct soap series “Greatest Love.”
“Meron akong konting part ng utak ko na na-shut off ko para lumabas na believable ang storya. Akala ko easy lang sa akin bumalik yung in-off ko, kailangan ko pa siguro magpahinga,” she told reporters during the recent launch of the 2019 Sinag Maynila Film Festival.
Sylvia plays lead once again in the Ronaldo Carballo drama “Jesusa,” an official entry to the full-length category of Sinag Maynila, which runs until April 17.
The film is set in a rundown community where Jesusa lives a normal life until unfortunate circumstances lead her to succumb to depression and to take drugs. “Hindi ko gagawin ‘yon. Kahit pagod lumalaban ako. Lumalaban nga ako para sa kapatid ko at nanay ko, what more sa mga anak ko na galing mismo sa tiyan ko?” Sylvia declared when asked if she was anything like her new character.
Sylvia’s commendable performance eventually won her the best actress award in last night’s ceremony held at the Conrad Hotel in Manila She shared the honor with Angela Cortez, lead actress of Jino To Mari. Meanwhile, the film got the best production design honor and Special Jury Award.
