MANILA, Philippines – “The Bourne Legacy” lead actress Rachel Weisz may have already left the country but the kids of San Andres, Manila will never forget the kindness shown to them by the Hollywood star.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, the movie's Hollywood producer Pat Crowley shared that before Weisz left the Philippines, she gave the kids of San Andres a new playground for them to enjoy.

“When she was making the movie, her trailer was parked right over there. Everyday she saw the playground. That had a lot to do with motivating her. She always makes a contribution after every movie she works on,” Crowley said.

Crowley said Weisz contributed a new merry go-round ride and a new seesaw for the kids to enjoy.

“Her biggest concern was the safety of the kids.... There were holes sharp edges and she said we can do better for the kids,” he said.

Aside from this, the “Bourne” production and local actors including Lou Veloso and John Arcilla also gave out school supplies and bags to almost 600 children.

They also reminded the kids to always work hard in school as education is their best weapon for their future.

Meanwhile, Crowley revealed that “Bourne Legacy” will have a special screening in the Philippines this year.

“I dont know if there will be a world premiere but definitely a special screening here for the people who were involved and people in Manila,” he said.

Before leaving for America, Crowley is set to visit Bohol for some whale-watching. – from a report by Ginger Conejero, ABS-CBN News
