Rise artist Gigi De Lana admitted that she got starstruck with her "Four Sisters Before the Wedding" co-actors Carmina Villaroel and Dominic Ochoa.
In an exclusive interview, Gigi said that she couldn't be more grateful to have worked with industry veterans for her first movie project.
"Na-starstruck ako siyempre lalo na kay Papa Doms (Dominic) and kay Ms. Carmina kasi grabe, ang gagaling nilang artista and nakasama ko sila sa first movie ko," she enthused.
Gigi also shared her encounter with the two actors while on the set.
"Si Papa Doms naman, meron siyang mga advice sa'kin about sa industry. 'Makisama ka lang, magpasensiya ka lang' ganyan kasi nakakausap ko rin siya, eh. Si Ms. Carmina naman, as usual, ang ganda-ganda niya. Kapag nakikita ko siya natutulala ako," she said.
