MANILA, Philippines – Actress Kim Chiu revealed that she has already finished shooting her upcoming Star Cinema film “The Healing.”
Chiu, who will play a doppelganger in the movie, said it was indeed a wonderful experience to be working alongside Star For All Seasons Vilma Santos.
“It’s a wonderful experience. Ang dami kong natutunan sa kanya as an actress and as a person. And kay Direk Chito (Roño) din, sobra akong nag-enjoy,” she said.
While there were times when she felt intimidated by Santos, Chiu said the acclaimed actress always encouraged her to just focus on her role.
“Sabi niya gawin mo dapat mong gawin sa isang eksena. Huwag mong sasayangin. Paulit-ulit niyang sinasabi na sayang 'yung eksena,” she said.
Chiu said working with Santos helped her grow as an actress. “Parang nag-grow yung acting ko. Madami akong natutunan in terms of work sa set,” she said.
After shooting “The Healing,” Chiu will be working on her next television series “Ina, Kapatid, Anak” which is also headlined by Maja Salvador, Xian Lim and Enchong Dee.
Actress Cherry Pie Picache will play Chiu's mother in the upcoming teleserye.
“It’s different dynamic. First time namin magkatrabaho ni Ms. Pie na mag-ina kami. Madaming beses na kaming nagkasama sa teleserye pero hindi siya 'yung kakampi ko. 'Yun ang isa sa mga dapat abangan ng viewers dito,” she said.
