Miss Universe 2010 runner-up Venus Raj admitted that her deaf-mute role in the January 17 episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” was her most challenging role yet.
Raj portrays Christine Balaguer, a deaf-mute Binibining Pilipinas 2015 candidate, whom she described in an interview on “Aquino & Abunda Tonight” yesterday, January 14, as a potential top contender in the pageant.
The beauty queen said that she was challenged with the role because she had to learn sign language for two days and show different emotions without saying a single word.
“It’s a bit challenging. ‘Yong mga kaibigan ni Christine ang nag-teach sa akin ng sign language. The entire shoot, nandoon sila kasi nag-iiba ang meaning kapag may kaunting galaw na nabago. You have to be cautious and sensitive,” Raj shared.
She also noted how this episode can help the disabled Filipinos in believing in themselves despite of physical incapability.
Also starring in this MMK episode are Carmi Martin, Matt Evans and Brenna Garcia. It is directed by Ruel Montañez.
