Alice Dixson targets "romantic comedy" as next project

Alice Dixson on next project: "Tapos na yung soap namin ngayon. I may do some other lighter things, maybe a bit of...something different naman. Basta hindi soap. Then, makakagawa na naman kami ng drama."

Now that Glamorosa is nearing its end, Alice Dixson will just be "doing various guestings."

Since she’s not tied to an exclusive contract with any television network, she can take her time in choosing which project to accept.

During the thanksgiving event of Glamorosa held recently, she told (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "I’m waiting for the right project. I’m waiting for the right offer. I’m very open..."

After her soap with TV5, a movie with GMA Films is in the works.

"I have an offer..." she began.

Smiling, the former beauty queen added, "I have an offer to do a movie with GMA again. Uhm, pero hindi ko pa alam yun...

"Hindi pa yun confirmed, kumbaga, we’re still [negotiating]...

"Hindi ko po alam ’yong detalye...Hindi ko din naman nababasa pa yung script."

But given the chance, "I want to do a romantic comedy. Something light lang..."


Before she left for Canada more than 10 years ago, the 42-year-old star made her mark as a serious actress.

Among the films she starred in: Pahiram Kahit Sandali, Sambahin Ang Ngalan Mo, Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang, Sinungaling Mong Puso, My Other Woman, and Dyesebel.

She worked with top-notch directors such as Mel Chionglo, Joel Lamangan, and Maryo J. Delos Reyes.

This time, she wants to try "working with new directors."

She elaborated, "Ang alam ko, maraming bagong director na hindi ko pa nakakatrabaho...

"So the new generation after them, hindi ko pa...I have no exposure pa...

"Depende sa role siguro, if the role is parang...if the role sounds great, bakit hindi?"

Her game plan is to strike a balance between the characters she will be portraying on TV and the big screen.

"I’m hoping kasi, mostly sa television, yung exposure ko...if you’re doing drama sa TV, it’s hard to do drama sa pelikula...


"I’m hoping my next project won’t be a soap. Gusto kong gumawa ng iba naman," she explained.

This way, she’ll always have something new for the viewers.

Alice continued, "If I’m gonna do serious drama, I have to do light comedy. Kasi hindi puwedeng both, di ba?

"Kasi siyempre, kung napapanood mo ako sa TV doing drama, why would you pay to watch me [do drama] sa pelikula?"

She took a breather from her role as the antagonist in Glamorosa and accepted the role in Panday.

She enjoyed the latter but found the former "one of the best experiences sa lahat."

Alice said, "It’s the first time sa television na gumanap ako bilang isang kontrabida...

"LT [Lorna Tolentino] is always a pleasure to work with.

"And magaang...Although naiintriga kami, yung show, magaang ang treatment namin. Personally, magaang siya."
