Charlie Dizon shared that one of the things she enjoys most about acting is that she gets to portray characters that are so much unlike her.
In the upcoming iWantTFC Originals series “My Sunset Girl”, the Kapamilya star will be playing Ciara, who has LITERALLY never experienced going out and feeling the sun on her skin.
“Ako si ‘My Sunset Girl’, 18 years old siya na buong buhay niya hindi siya nakalabas ng bahay kasi meron siyang condition na Xeroderma pigmentosum wherein bawal siyang maarawan, dahil puwede niya ikamatay. ‘Pag naarawan siya, maaapektuhan 'yung immune system niya,” Charlie explained in a report by Push.
But everything will change when Ciara goes on social media and meets a boy named Lucas, who’s played by Jameson Blake.
This isn’t the first time Charlie and Jameson are playing opposite each other. In 2020, they appeared in “Four Sisters Before the Wedding” and also in a Valentine’s Day episode for “Maalaala Mo Kaya”.
The 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival Best Actress winner revealed that because of this, she has grown fond of him as a co-actor.
“Dahil sobrang kumportable na namin ni Jameson din, sobrang madali na yung trabaho. Ang nagustuhan ko lang kay Jameson, willing na willing din siya magbigay kapag halimbawa, every night nagsi-script reading kami. Kumbaga pina-practice din namin ‘yung gagawin namin kahit papano kung anong atake gagawin namin. Kaya ‘yun yung reason why grateful ako with my partnership with Jameson,” she shared.
The RISE artist also teased some scenes that she was thrilled to do and that people should watch out for.
“Yung sa lighthouse scene namin ni Jameson kasi first time ko rin nakapunta sa lighthouse. First time ko ma-experience ‘yun. Nakakalula, pero maganda. Tapos yung mga eksena din namin sa beach and of course, yung confrontation namin ni Ms. Mylene (Dizon). Pati pala yung eksena namin ni Joem (Bascon) sobrang unforgettable, kasi medyo mabigat yung eksena tapos first time ko maka-work si Joem. Kilala ko si Joem before pa, pero never ko siya naka-work kaya memorable din ‘yun,” said Charlie.
Director by Andoy Ranay and produced by Dreamscape Entertainment and All Blacks Media, “My Sunset Girl” will premiere this July 14 on iWantTFC.
