Malaysian actress Carmen Soo is starting to make her mark on Philippine showbiz. After portraying the leading lady of Jericho Rosales in Kahit Isang Saglit, she was recently tapped to be the newest celebrity endorser of Petit Monde. (Click HERE to read related article.)
She is also being considered to take part in a romantic drama starring Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa. Carmen herself said this during the thanksgiving press conference Kahit Isang Saglit held last December 3 at 9501 restaurant at ABS-CBN.
When asked if she has long-term plans here in the Philippines, Carmen replied, "Miss Malou [Santos, Star Cinema managing director] said that there might be a movie next year with Echo."
Echo had a slip of the tongue and revealed that Carmen is also studying the script for her role in the John Lloyd Cruz-Maricel Soriano movie.
The Malaysian actress is slated to have a cameo role in T2, which will be directed by Chito Roño. Short for Tenement 2, the movie T2 is about a woman named Claire (Maricel Soriano) who works in a travel agency. She meets a young girl (portrayed by Mica dela Cruz) who lost her parents. John Lloyd Cruz is also cast in this horror flick.
This movie marks the Diamond Star's fifth movie with Direk Chito. They previously worked on the films Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin (1993), Separada (1994), Dahas (1995), and Nasaan ang Puso (1997).
The press then asked Echo and Carmen to give their message for each other now that their TV show is coming to an end. The Malaysian actress said, "After we wrapped, we had a little chat and I told him it's been an honor and a pleasure to work with him. I thanked him for the friendship and for teaching me."
Echo also shared his thoughts about his Malaysian leading lady. "Ako definitely I would like to work with Carmen again. If Star Cinema says we have another project together, that would be good. Masaya na naman yun kasi it would be a different experience to work with her on film naman."
