Gumaganap ng mahalagang papel si Alexis Navarro sa pelikulang The Maid In London na tinatampukan nina Matt Evans at Andi Eigenmann. Ang pelikulang isinulat at pinamahalaan ni Direk Danni Ugali ay palabas na sa July 4.
Nasa Europe si Alexis para pasayahin ang mga kababayan sa fiesta style na pagdiriwang doon. Siya ay about eight years na sa showbiz, pero on and off. Sa pamamagitan ng Facebook ay na-interview namin siya.
Saad ni Alexis, “I was doing commercials when I was younger, then kapit bahay ko po is always hiring artistas for event… big boss na rin siya sa number 1 station kaya big help po siya talaga sa career ko, ng buhay namin actually. Lugi na kasi kami sa negosyo noon eh, natapos ko po ang college ko dahil sa pag-aartista.”
Nabanggit din ng aktres ang role niya sa The Maid In London. “I’m playing the role of Faye po… best friends kami ni Margo (Andi),” wika niya.
Ano ang masasabi mo kina Andi at direk Danni? “Si Andi ay magaling pong umarte, magaling siya talaga, pati rin po si Direk Danni. Plus mabait sila,” aniya.
Saad pa ni Alexis, “Some people are asking about the difference between Andi’s The Maid in London and Jennifer Lopez’s Maid in Manhattan. Here it is- Maid in Manhattan is a romantic comedy. The story of Marisa Ventura (Jennifer), a single mother born and bred in the boroughs of New York City, who works as a maid in a first-class Manhattan hotel. Fate steps in and throws the pair together for a magical night of romance. When Marisa’s true identity is revealed, the two find that they are worlds apart.
“Whilst The Maid in London is a drama. It is inspired by true events. The story of two best friends, Margo (Andi) and Faye (Alexis) working illegally in the United Kingdom, struggling to obtain permanent residency visa, hence every day they fear of getting caught by immigration police.
“The story has many twists and turns which make it more interesting to watch and inspirations to all overseas workers around the world and an eye-opener to their families back home. Showing the sacrifices they make just to provide them with the quality of life for their loved ones no matter how hard life is being illegal overseas workers. Now, what makes it similar? They are both gorgeous, excellent in their performance as the maids’ roles.”
Mula sa Cinemanila.UK at Viva Films, ang The Maid in London ay sa screenplay ni Direk Danni at base sa librong Tago ng Tago ni BL Panganiban. Tampok din dito sina Polo Ravales, Janice Jurado, Joshua de Guzman, at iba pa.
