That was the initial reaction of Alexa Ilacad, Charlie Dizon, Gillian Vicencio, and Belle Mariano, the lead stars of "Four Sisters Before the Wedding," upon learning that they will portray the legendary Salazar sisters from "Four Sisters and a Wedding."
It will be helmed by director Giselle Andres.
The young actresses expressed how honored they were to be cast in the roles, February 27.
“Nakakakilig po and nakaka-pressure at the same time,” Charlie said. She will portray Teddie.
Belle, who will be taking on the soft-spoken Gabbie, said, “Very honored and at the same time pressured kasi napaka-iconic noong movie.”
Gillian and Alexa, on the other hand, are quite nervous for their roles as Alex and Bobbie.
“Siyempre masaya, kinikilig. Pero habang tumatagal, noong binabasa ko na rin ‘yung script, kinakabahan ako,” Gillian said.
“Ako, ‘yung reaction ko, ‘Yes!’ pero siyempre biglang nag-sink in na ‘Hala, kaya ko ba?’ saka ‘yung ‘Hindi, kakayanin ko!’” Alexa enthused.
The actresses said they relate quite well to their characters—all the more reasons to be excited for their portrayal.
For instance, Gillian is very much like Alex with her boyish personality.
“Kay Alex kasi, well, boyish kasi talaga ako gumalaw [like her],” she said. “Hindi ako ‘yung Bobbie na prim and proper, pero ‘yung pinagdadaanan niya as Bobbie, may ganoon din ako.”
Meanwhile, Charlie sees herself in the four sisters: she has a bit like Teddie’s personality, Bobbie’s hardworking traits, Alex’s love for film, and Gabbie, takes care of their mother.
Belle can also relate to all the Salazar sisters, but more so with Teddie since she is the eldest of the siblings.
“Actually lahat [nakakarelate ako] eh. Kay Teddie, ako ‘yung panganay sa amin tapos lima rin kami,” she shared.
Meanwhile, Alexa is very much like Alex with her passions and like Bobbie in that she will do everything to achieve her dreams.
“Siguro pinakanakaka-relate ako kay Alex, may side din ako na edgy and maangas. Into the arts of course, kasi mahilig din ako sa music. Bobbie din ako kasi pareho kaming madaming pangarap, at gagawin namin ang lahat para makamit ‘yun,” she explained.
It will be produced by SCX, a new sub brand under ABS-CBN Films, Star Cinema dedicated to new artists and upcoming directors.
