Kira Balinger has a lot riding on “Familia Blondina”.
The actress opened up about feeling a lot of pressure as her debut film, which also stars Queen Mother Karla Estrada, Jobert Austria, Marco Gallo, and Xia Vigor, nears its playdate. The film is about two half-Filipino families coming together for some comedy fun.
She told PUSH in a recent interview, "Sobrang pressured ako because I don't know if I did a good job kasi you can't watch the movie ahead of time ‘di ba?”
However, “Familia Blondina” seems to be quite a special undertaking for Kira, who says she related to her character being a United Kingdom-bred half-Pinoy living in Manila. She said, “I'm very excited and very blessed to be a part of this movie kasi it really shows the journey of foreigners growing up here in the Philippines, experiencing the culture, and everything.”
She continued, “So I believe a movie that we can learn from. Sobra nga akong naka-relate kasi I grew up in the UK, tapos nag-move kami dito sa Pinas and sobra nga akong na-culture shock kasi sa UK sobrang tahimik. Pero dito sa Pilipinas, siyempre maraming activities, fiesta.”
“Familia Blondina” is directed by the legendary Jerry Lopez Sineneng, and will hit cinemas nationwide this February 27. You can watch the trailer here:
