Gina Pareño, or better known as Lola Gets on social media, has expressed her desire to audition for Disney's casting search for a Filipino Lola.
Yesterday, January 7, the veteran actress shared Disney's post about the casting call as well as a photo of her looking all jolly with her oversized hat.
"Pasado ba ako pag nag audition ako sa Disney?" she tweeted.
In an exclusive interview with When in Manila, Gina revealed that her team is already preparing to shoot her audition video.
“Syempre opportunity yan! Mare-represent ulit ang mga Filipina Lola sa buong mundo! I love it! Sabi ko nga sa anak kong si Raquel, mag send ka rin ng video. Eh kaka-birthday lang niya at 50 na siya. Kaya pasok na pasok!” she enthused.
According to the casting call currently up on Project Casting (HYPERLINK: https://www.projectcasting.com/job/159), they are looking for a Filipino or Filipino-American female aged 50 to 90, to play a role in an upcoming Walt Disney Studios film.
They should also be authorized to work in the U.S., such as being a US citizen, a green card holder, or an O-1 visa holder.
The actress who will be picked from the auditionees will be shooting in mid-February in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States.
