Last August 27 during the pocket press conference for the 2019 Pista Ng Pelikulang Pilipino (PPP) entry Watch Me Kill, lead star Jean Garcia was asked by the press if she was still willing to do sexy roles at her age of 50, with the dawn of May-December love affair movies like Just A Stranger in theaters.
As one who lives challenges, the veteran actress just took on an action role where she will play a prolific killer-for-hire named Luciana. However, is she willing to be daring once more? Jean explained that she is still willing if the film’s story and script are good. She revealed that at the height of her career now, she must do something she has not tried before in her many years in the acting industry.
“Lagi naman. Dini-discuss lagi naman ni direk Manny [Valera] (Jean’s manager) bago kami gumawa ng mga pelikula, kahit independent film.” Jean explained. “As much as possible, gagawa ako ng hindi ko pa nagagawa, katulad ng Sayaw Ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa, ballet dancer-ballet teacher siya, na hindi ko pa rin nagawa.”
“So, kung gagawa rin naman ako ng pelikula like ’eto nga, ang konsepto ay May-December, kung maganda po ang script at ’yong artista rin na makakasama ko, ’di ba? Kung kakilala ko rin naman siya, at, siyempre, direktor din, ’yong producer din.” she added.
She explains that every part of the film should be okay for her to accept a specific film, not just only a specific part but all parts. Going back to the question if she is willing to do sexy roles and May-December love affairs again, Jean had this to say:
“Yes. Kung given the chance, bakit hindi?”
Watch Me Kill will premiere in theaters nationwide on September 13, along with other entries of the PPP.
