Itinuturing ni Alfred Vargas na malaking karangalan ang sinabi noon ni Cherie Gil na itinuturing siya ng veteran actress bilang isa sa mga paborito nitong kapareha.

Tandang-tanda pa ni Alfred na December 16, 2019 nang i-post ni Cherie sa Instagram ang litrato nila.

Ang nilagay na caption ni Cherie: “Happy to reunite with one of my favorite leading men and friend.”

Nagkatrabaho sila sa Kaputol, ang award-winning movie na pinagbidahan nina Cherie at Alfred. Si Alfred din ang producer ng pelikula.

“Hindi ko in-expect ang Instagram post niya noon. Naturally, isa talaga siyang kaibigan na masarap kasama at kakuwentuhan.

“World premiere yun ng Kaputol when she posted it. It made me very happy to be called one of her favorite leading men,” ang pahayag ni Alfred sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) nang balikan niya ang kuwento ng pagsisimula ng pagiging magkaibigan nila ni Cherie.

“Magkasama kami ni Cherie sa internationally award-winning film na Kaputol, directed by Mac Alejandre in 2019 at dito kami naging close.

“Kaming dalawa ang main cast ng movie na written by National Artist Ricky Lee.

“As an actor, bilib na bilib ako kay Cherie, lalo na on how she approached the craft. Grabe ang focus niya sa character and she really is one of the best actresses in Philippine cinema history.”

BEHIND-THE-SCENE CONVERSATIONS WITH CHERIE

Lubos ang pagdadalamhati ni Alfred sa pagpanaw ng 59-year-old actress sa New York City noong August 5, 2022.

Hindi raw alam ni Alfred na may karamdaman si Cherie.

Huli silang nagkatrabaho sa Kapuso prime-time series na Legal Wives, na umere mula July-November 2021.

Gumanap si Alfred bilang panganay na anak ni Cherie at kapatid ni Dennis Trillo sa serye.

Pero hindi natapos ni Cherie ang kanyang role nang umalis siya sa serye sa gitna ng shooting nito noong summer of 2021.

Kuwento ni Afred sa PEP.ph: “I’m proud to have worked with her several times. Pati sa Legal Wives ng GMA-7, nagkasama kami.

“But the times that I really appreciated Cherie were the times behind the scenes. In between takes, the long tengga hours of waiting on the set.

“She was such a lady who knew how to converse. She imparted wisdom naturally and eloquently.

“The last conversation we had was on the set of Legal Wives. While waiting for our scene, alongside Lake Caliraya, we talked about sustainable development and how this new Pinoy company is making innovations in terms of house ecology-friendly house designs.”

“Hindi ko alam, yun na pala ang huling beses kong makakasama ang aking kaibigan na si Cherie Gil.
