Jasmine shares thoughts on Best Actress win

By Marty Hsu

Jasmine Curtis-Smith almost couldn’t put to words how happy she is to be given the Best Actress award at the 12th C1 Originals Festival last Sunday, November 20.

Jasmine won the award for role in the film “Baka Bukas” where she played a lesbian who fell in love with her best friend.

In her acceptance speech, Jasmine dedicated her award to the LGBT community, who sent her their support for portraying the role well.

In her interview with the press published by PUSH today, November 22, Jasmine talked about what the LGBT community did to her.

“They’ve been a big part of this film. Hindi naman namin ginawang conscious effort na ‘yun ‘yung selling point namin, eh. Ang selling point namin was it was a love story between best friends and it just so happened that they are two girls,” she said.

She added, “So, for the community to support us and to really love this film beyond just watching it pero alam mo ‘yun, hanggang social media, hanggang pag-invite ng friends nila, it’s been incredible kung paano nila ma-accept so for me, parang naging validation siya na may ginawa akong tama sa pelikulang ito and I’m just really, really happy.”

Jasmine couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed with the award as she didn’t expect to receive something like that so early in her career.

“I’m just really overwhelmed right now. Hindi ko ma-explain. Sobrang… Kailangan ko pang tulugan ‘to para maniwala na ako talaga ‘yung nanalo,” she said.
