THE “P” TALKS!
BY: Pilar Mateo
“WHEN IT rains, it pours!” It may sound cliché. But for actress Roxanne Barcelo, it just not sounds so true, but it is what us happening in her life for the past months!
“Pasakit to pasabog. Kaya, hindi ko maiwasang umiyak every time na mababalikan ko ang mga nangyari sa akin. Masasakit. Pero binabalikan ng magagandang kapalit. Lalo na when I think of Tatay. Kasi, siya ‘yung ang mga pangarap para sa akin eh, ‘yung alam niya na gusto ko talagang gawin!”
Her Dad passed away when Roxanne was busy shooting “The Panti Sisters”. The peofessional that she is, she would finish her scenes before proceeding to her Dad’s side and quietly mourn of his passing.
“Marami’ng nangyari after he passed away. Imagine? Nakarating at nakatapak ako sa “It’s Showtime”. Kumanta. Nanalo pa. Lumaban sa mga magagaling na. Gusto ni Tatay na ituloy ko ang pagkanta. I didn’t know how pero ayan. Nangyari.
“Sunud-sunod na projects. “The Art of Ligaw”. Natutuwa naman ako sa roles that come my way. Nakilala na ako sa pagko-kontrabida. and then this came. “Love is Love”. Bida? Ako? Sabi ng dinaanan ko sa pagwo-workshop na si direk GB Sampedro eh, bakit naman daw hindi ako. para sa isang malalim na katakter ngayon. Kinaya ko naman siya ng bongga’ng-bongga. salamat sa mga co-stars ko. JC de Vera. Jay Manalo. Raymond Bagatsing. Neil Coleta. amd more.”
She has sacrificed a lot of things in life. Including living and being loved. Her ex will now be a Dad with his partner.
“I am happy for Will (Devaughn) and his partner now. May dadating pa na blessing. Congrats! Two years na rin naman kami na hiwalay. It’s about time to really lead separate lives. Ako naman, I have taken a different path now. with the things that are coming my way, hindi ko hahayaan na mawala the possibilities in all the things that are here for me. So, wa care muna sa lovelife.”
Roxanne portrays the role of Winona in Cel Santiago’s “Love is Love”.
The Sexy Kontra-Bida stars in her first lead role in the romcom/heartwarming movie. It is the first venture of Royal King Bren International Pictures or RKB Productions.
Winona is the unconcentional girlfriend of Wacko (Neil). She crosses path with Wacko’s bestfriend, Anton (JC). Anton realizes that Winona, with all her eccentricities is the woman to end his “auto-pilot” kind of life and insignificsnt affairs.
But the question is, what if Winona is nothing like the woman he imagined or known her to be?
Answers will be revealed on December 4, 2019 in cinemas nationwide.
The cast are one in saying that, “Kung akala niyo, napanood niyo ng lahat ng love stories dito sa ‘Pinas, meron pang isa na dapat niuong abangan. The lovestory of Winona and Anton!”
We live. We love. We LIE!
