Legendary actress Anita Linda has passed away. She was 95.
Director Adolfo Alix Jr. confirmed the news in a Facebook post today, June 10. In the caption he wrote, “This is a very sad day for me. I am trembling as I am gathering my thoughts.”
“The great Anita Linda has passed away this morning at 6:15 AM. Prayers for her soul,” he added.
Direk Adolfo is grieving with the actress’ bereaved family members, including her children Francesca Legaspi and Fred Osburn.
Anita was regarded as Philippine cinema’s oldest working actress. In June last year, she was honored by the the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) with an achievement award for her contributions to cinema as an actress and a mentor.
She appeared in a number of Star Cinema films in the past including “Bride For Rent,” “The Mistress,” and “Pare Ko.”
May your soul rest in peace, Ms. Anita.
