Kris Aquino lands Hollywood movie role
Staff Report Published: April 17, 2017
Actress and talk show host Kris Aquino revealed in an Instagram post on Easter Sunday that she has landed a role in a Hollywood movie.
“Tonight I fly to Los Angeles to meet Chris Lee, my agent to sign my contract. I passed 5 levels of intense scrutiny and was offered a role,” she said in a lengthy caption of a photo showing Biblical text.
“It is surreal to be reading the script from a major Hollywood studio watermarked on every page with my name,” she added.
Due to a contractual obligation, Aquino said she would not yet disclose details of the film and her role in it.
Aquino shared her brokenness in spirit after having two of her shows cancelled within a year, but found hope and joy in the upcoming project she is about to embark on.
Aquino said it was Tony & Grammy award winning Broadway producer Jhett Tolentino who reached out to her through her contacts last March.
“He was helping a Filipino-Chinese-American agent friend of his reach me to ask if I’d want to audition for a big Hollywood studio movie about to start filming. The pressure was I had to submit my reel in 72 hrs,” she narrated.
“I felt I had nothing to lose, so we went for it. 48 hrs after Jhett’s call, on March 25 we mounted an audition shoot in Manila Peninsula,” Aquino said.
Aquino hopes her Hollywood break gives her fans “encouragement and hope.”
“I am proof that in life doors will shut, and there will be heartbreaking setbacks but faith in God’s plan will open new, unexpected doors,” she said.
