Cristine Reyes's "Seven Sundays" character Cha is one intriguing lady.
During the film's Press Conference last October 8, the actress talked about what exactly makes Cha, the only girl of the Bonifacio family, tick and why it makes her so relatable to women in the same situation.
She said, "Si Cha po ay isang napakatiyagang bata at babae. Medyo hindi naga-agree kasi sa akin 'yung mga kuyas ko sa aking napangasawa (played by Kean Cipriano)."
"So, yung challenge dito ni Cha is 'yung kaya niya. Kaya niya sa mata ng kanyang mga kapatid."
Cristine pressed that her character's situation is one that a lot of women whose families didn't necessarily fall in love with their choice of groom could identify with.
She said, "Alam naman natin na marami ding dumadaan sa ganoon na hindi agree 'yung mga pamilya nila [sa pinakasalan nila]. Maraming makaka-relate...lahat siguro ng nag-asawa na hindi sinuportahan ng pamilya, 'yun ang makaka-relate sa akin."
“Seven Sundays” tells the story of the four Bonifacio siblings (Dingdong Dantes, Cristine Reyes, Enrique Gil, and Aga Muhlach), who are forced to return to their childhood home when their Tatay Manuel (Ronaldo Valdez) is diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer.
The film asks: As the Bonifacios confront their history, will they be able to reconnect and find redemption in each other?
"Seven Sundays" is now on its second week in cinemas!
