Wala pang ibang detalye kung ano ang sanhi ng pagpanaw ng award-winning actress at ang tinagurian ding La Primera Kontrabida ng pelikula at telebisyon.

May 8, 2021 nang gulatin ni Cherie ang publiko sa kanyang pag-alis sa teleseryeng Legal Wives ng GMA-7. 

Kasalukuyang nasa lock-in taping pa ang buong cast nang biglang magpaalam na si Cherie.

Sa kanyang Facebook ay pinost niya ang mahabang mensahe kung bakit siya nag-quit sa gitna ng kanyang trabaho sa teleserye…

“There comes a time in your life when you have to make a very important decision albeit difficult and even painful. Finding a balance is crucial especially when held back by circumstances that don't foster mental, emotional and spiritual growth.

“I found myself in such a situation. And believe me, it wasn't impulsive as I tend to be in the past. It took a long excruciating process to look at the whole situation through the lenses of critical thought, analysis, neuroses, counsel, reflection, meditation and most of all prayer.

“Finally, the signs were everywhere and it couldn't be any clearer.

“To my deep sadness, I finally had to leave a soap half way through. And to be honest, for a committed actor such as myself, I would have wanted to see my character within the story till its end.

“It is during these most uncertain times that propelled me in fact to revisit and question my WHY in all that I do from here on.

“48 years knowing and doing that one thing I love most which is to ACT, led me to this point.

“Was It all really worth it, I ask myself. The time, the energy, the heart, the tears , the sleepless nights and long hours, the devotion, the dedication, the respect and reverence invested to the work?

“It is disheartening and blatantly frustrating when it isn't seen and met in the same light and given equal energy. I have always believed that any form of creativity blossoms from collaboration and a unified goal.

“The whole process of this work is SACRED to me. Without this process, there is no joy to be found, no minds to learn from and no point!

“As I have always been told, THERE ARE NO SHORT CUTS. In anything. Otherwise, we limit ourselves from our potential and will only lead to chronic mediocrity.

“But the one thing I am sure, is that I HAVE NO REGRETS. Is it now all worth it? Well... It better be. I have to constantly remind myself that it was.

“Just as the layers of the many of characters I have had to shed each time I ended a film, a play or a tv series before, this is that one more layer I am shedding. Perhaps, the most necessary and important one.

“I know I will be paying the price for this as there may be a lot at stake. But I am willing and ready now to settle the deal and move forward. Towards what, I am still figuring out but it is the uncertainty that makes it all the more exciting and l am looking forward.

“I am now leaving those pieces behind that don't serve anymore. I have held on too long for reasons that were good until this moment. Am I going to lose my shirt along the way being single and middle aged ? Perhaps I will.

“BUT.... I am BECOMING. For better or for worse, I AM .”

 

There comes a time in your life when you have to make a very important decision albeit difficult and even painful....

February ng taong ito nang lumabas ang interview ni Cherie sa Mega Magazine, kung saan ang cover photo ay nagpakitang kalbo ang aktres.

Sa kanyang interview, sinabi niya na binenta na niya ang lahat ng ari-arian niya sa Pilipinas at lumipat na siya sa New York permanently.

“I just had to make sure that first and foremost, my mental, emotional, spiritual states were getting the priority. I was getting tired of myself. And I was just so angry and unhappy, so I sold everything and packed up.

“Yes. I am human. We all get scared sometimes, if not often. But I have found my own tools to deal with them. By not focusing on the fears but instead on trust and most of all gratitude.

“I’m completely finding myself and coming to terms with who I really am. It’s just great to have this opportunity and to be alive to start over. It’s like a rebirth of sorts.

“I won’t deny that I have gone to therapy and counseling. Years and years of doing that, I learned that it just boils down to doing the hard work on and with yourself by whatever means. 

“What’s hair di ba? It grows back. It’s symbolic to my personal growth. When a woman is in distress, she cuts her hair.”

Born Evangeline Rose Gil Eigenmann on May 12, 1963 to Filipino singer-actors Eddie Mesa and Rosemarie Gil, and sister of fellow actors, Michael de Mesa and the late Mark Gil.

She was married to violinist Rony Rogoff and had two children: Raphael and Bianca. May anak din siya sa aktor na si Leo Martinez na si Jay Gil.

Nagtagal ang career ni Cherie for nearly 50 years. Mula sa pagiging child actress, pinasok din ni Cherie ang pagiging sexy actress sa launching film niya na Bubot Na Bayabas in 1978. Pero ni-relaunch siya ng Regal Films via Problem Child in 1979.

Gumanap si Cherie sa iba’t ibang roles kunsaan napansin ang husay niya bilang aktres tulad sa Ito Ba Ang Inyong Mga Anak?, City After Dark, Salawahan, at Oro, Plata, Mata. 

Sinubukan din ni Cherie ang maging recording artist at naglabas siya ng single na “I Love You Boy”. Pinasok din niya ang comedy sa pagsali sa cast ng late night gag show na Champoy in 1981.

Pero mas nakilala si Cherie bilang isang mahusay na kontrabida sa pelikula.

Pinakasikat na kontrabida role niya ay bilang si Lavinia Arguelles sa 1985 film na Bituing Walang Ningning kunsaan binitawan niya ang immortal line kay Sharon Cuneta na: “You're nothing but a second-rate, trying hard copycat!" 

Naging kontrabida siya kay Sharon sa iba pang pelikula: Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas, Sa Hirap At Ginhawa, Kailan Sasabihing Mahal Kita, Kahit Wala Ka Na, at Ngayon at Kailanman.

Sa TV, lumabas din ang pagiging kontrabida ni Cherie sa mga teleserye na May Bukas Pa, Marina, Bituin, Gulong Ng Palad, Pieta, Grazilda, Magic Palayok, Time of My Life, Legacy, Temptation of Wife, The Half Sisters, Dolce Amore, Muling Buksan Ang Puso, Alyas Robin Hood, Onanay, at Sirkus.

Tumanggap din ng maraming awards si Cherie, kabilang rito ang Metro Manila Film Festival (Best Supporting Actress for God Save Me, Imortal, and Sugatang Puso); Gawad Urian (Citizen Jake); Star Awards (Citizen Jake) at Madrid International Film Festival (Mana)

Naging recipient din si Cherie ng Ani ng Dangal (Harvest of Honor) award by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).

Rest in peace, Ms. Cherie Gil…
