Young actress Charlie Dizon reminisced about her journey to becoming the lead star of Antoinette Jadaone's latest feature, "Fan Girl."
"FAN GIRL": Antoinette Jadaone's 'Fan Girl' to premiere at the 33rd Tokyo International Film Festival!
"Fan Girl" is set to premiere at the 33rd Tokyo International Film Festival, to be held from October 31 to November 9, 2020.
In the film, Charlie plays Jane, an obsessed fan of Paulo Avelino, who plays himself — a popular celebrity heartthrob.
"Sobrang nagmarka sa akin ang 'Fan Girl' not only because first major film ko, but also because of the experience. Sobrang dami ko pong natutunan while we were doing the film. Ito na ata 'yung pinaka-nahirapan ako dahil hindi lang siya emotionally challenging, physically, and psychologically din. Pero sobrang worth it lahat ng experience," Charlie wrote on Instagram last Tuesday, September 29.
She continued, "I believe that destiny paved the way para makapag-audition ako. Noong una, wala po akong idea na may project na 'Fan Girl' at matagal na silang naghahanap for the role. Sobrang biglaan po 'yung audition and I remember holiday nun kaya muntik na talagang 'di ako makapag-audition. I had no idea about the story but I went because I knew na si Direk Antoinette 'yung director."
The RISE Artist talent then recalled her "awkward" audition for the project.
She shared, "During the audition, pagpasok ko pa lang, sabi agad, pakibura lahat ng makeup. So doon pa lang kinabahan na talaga ako. Siyempre nahiya ako sa no makeup face look dahil first time ko mag-audition nang ganun. And then after I said my lines, tawang-tawa ako sa harap nila sa sobrang awkward at hiya. But thank you Direk Antoinette and to the whole team behind 'Fan Girl' for the trust."
Ultimately, Charlie bagged the role and she's grateful for it. She thanked Direk Antoinette, her acting coach Jose Jay B. Cruz (@husejose), and her "number one idol" Paulo "for being such a gentleman".
Charlie also lifted up her thanks to God for the incredible blessing. She wrote, "And of course to God, thank youuuu! Nakailang bisita din po ako sa Inyo sa Baclaran Church since last year. Worth it lahat ng pagtitirik ng kandila at pagkatok kay Sto. Niño para i-wish na sana makapasok kami sa international film festival at eto na nga ang sagot Mo. Sobrang thank you God! Thank you universe! Sinagot N’yo talaga ako. ❤️"
She ended her post saying, "Noon, isa lang din akong fan na pumupunta ng mall shows. Never kong inakala na makakagawa ako ng ganitong klaseng pelikula. ❤️"
