The legendary Cathy Garcia-Molina has tagged "Seven Sundays" as career-redefining for actress Cristine Reyes.
During the "Seven Sundays" Press Conference last Sunday, October 8, Direk Cathy revealed that she was surprised when the actress, who plays Cha, the Bonifacios' only girl in the story, showed her humility and versatility as an actress on-set.
"Si Aa, I never worked with her. The very few times na nakita ko siya either mistress siya, asawa, pa-sexy, pa-beauty, pa-labas cleavage, masungit, patolera."
She continued, "Pero dito, tuwang-tuwa ako kay Cristine kasi para siyang hindi si Cristine Reyes. Wala kang bahid na makita ng nakaraan niyang mga roles."
"Sobra siyang naging kapatid lang nila. Sobra siyang naging prinsesa lang ng pamilyang Bonifacio."
According to Direk Cathy, Cristine never demanded more lines or more scenes and was spectacular as Cha in the film.
"It's in the simplicity of her role and her performance that made her lovable in this movie," she said.
"Hindi nananapaw, hindi pinipilit magka-eksena. She's just there, a sister, a family member, and I love her."
“Seven Sundays” tells the story of the four Bonifacio siblings (Dingdong Dantes, Cristine Reyes, Enrique Gil and Aga), who are forced to return to their childhood home when their Tatay Manuel (Ronaldo Valdez) is diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer.
The main question is, as they confront their history, will they be able to reconnect and find redemption in each other?
"Seven Sundays" is now showing in cinemas nationwide!
