Binulaga tayo ng Facebook post ng ating kaibigang Cherie Gil ng ganitong post ngayong Mayo 8, Sabado ng 11:54 am kaugnay sa pag-alis niya sa isang teleserye midway.
Ani Cherie, “There comes a time in your life when you have to make a very important decision albeit difficult and even painful. Finding a balance is crucial especially when held back by circumstances that don't foster mental, emotional and spiritual growth.
“I found myself in such a situation. And believe me, it wasn't impulsive as I tend to be in the past. It took a long excruciating process to look at the whole situation through the lenses of critical thought, analysis, neuroses, counsel, reflection, meditation and most of all prayer.
“Finally, the signs were everywhere and it couldn't be any clearer.
“To my deep sadness, I finally had to leave a soap half way through. And to be honest, for a committed actor such as myself, I would have wanted to see my character within the story till its end.
“It is during these most uncertain times that propelled me in fact to revisit and question my WHY in all that I do from here on.
“48 years knowing and doing that one thing I love most which is to ACT, led me to this point.
“Was It all really worth it, I ask myself. The time, the energy, the heart, the tears , the sleepless nights and long hours, the devotion, the dedication, the respect and reverence invested to the work?
“It is disheartening and blatantly frustrating when it isn't seen and met in the same light and given equal energy. I have always believed that any form of creativity blossoms from collaboration and a unified goal.
“The whole process of this work is SACRED to me. Without this process, there is no joy to be found, no minds to learn from and no point!
“As I have always been told, THERE ARE NO SHORT CUTS. In anything. Otherwise, we limit ourselves from our potential and will only lead to chronic mediocrity.
“But the one thing I am sure, is that I HAVE NO REGRETS. Is it now all worth it? Well... It better be. I have to constantly remind myself that it was.
“Just as the layers of the many of characters I have had to shed each time I ended a film, a play or a tv series before, this is that one more layer I am shedding. Perhaps, the most necessary and important one.
“I know I will be paying the price for this as there may be a lot at stake. But I am willing and ready now to settle the deal and move forward. Towards what, I am still figuring out but it is the uncertainty that makes it all the more exciting and l am looking forward.
“I am now leaving those pieces behind that don't serve anymore. I have held on too long for reasons that were good until this moment. Am I going to loose my shirt along the way being single and middle aged ? Perhaps I will.
“I am BECOMING. For better or for worse, I AM .”
Importante ang papel ni Cherie Gil bilang Zaina Macadato sa cultural drama series ng GMA-7 na Legal Wives.
Si Zaina ang mapagmahal na ina ni Ismael Macadato, ang karakter ni Dennis Trillo.
Post ng Facebook page ng Legal Wives noong Marso 26 kaakibat ang litrato nina Dennis at Cherie, “Ang mag inang Ismael at Zaina. Kaisa isang anak ni Zaina at kaniyang pinaka mamahal si Ismael. Tunghayan kung hanggang saan at anung klase ng relasyon ang ipapakita sa kwento ni Ismael at kanyang Ina.
“Abangan ang kakaiba at kamangha manghang character na bibigyang buhay ng award winning actress na si Cherie Gil. Isa kaya siyang mabait na ina or isang maldita na handang gawin ang lahat upang wasakin ang mga legal wives ng kaniyang anak.
“Tunghayan ang kwento ng isang Muslim na ina, abangan ang kakaibang kwento ng aying mga Kapatid na Muslims lalong lalo na ang tribong Maranao na naninirahan sa paligid ng lake lanao.”
Noong Disyembre 8, 2020 ay pinost ni Cherie sa Instagram ang litrato na magkaeksena sila ni Shayne Sava.
Ani Cherie, thrilled siya na maging bahagi ng unang soap ni Shayne matapos itong magwagi sa Starstruck kung saan isa siya sa mga hurado.
“Here I can witness her grow and blossom. She’s truly one talent to watch out for,” post ni Cherie, na ang pakiwari sa sarili ay isang proud mama kay Shayne.
Wala pang sagot sa akin ang ilang taga-Legal Wives na pinagtanungan ko.
Na-delay sila nang isang linggo, at dapat ay magsisimula na silang i-quarantine sa susunod na linggo. Nakakasa na ang lahat.
Kaya ewan ko kung paano nila maayos ang kuwento na hindi na kasali si Cherie.
Pawang tsismis pa lang kasi ang nasasagap namin.
Merong kuwentong ililipat daw siya sa drama series ni Alden Richards na sa susunod na buwan pa magsisimula.
Meron ding dismayado raw si Cherie sa ilang kaeksena niya sa seryeng ito. Pero hindi pa naman sila bumalik ng taping.
Kung meron man siyang isyu sa ilang co-actors niya, dapat ay noong nagti-taping pa sila sa first at second cycle ay umalma na siya.
Mas mabuting tanggapin na lang kung ano ang desisyon ni Cherie dahil mahirap pilitin kung hindi ka na masaya sa ginagawa mo.
Iba na rin kasi ngayon ang temper natin, pati ang mga desisyon dala na rin sa hirap na hinaharap namin.
Dito pa lang sa mga ipinapatupad na safety protocols, nakakaburyong na talaga. Ang dami-daming restrictions na kailangang sundin.
Sayang lang na aalis na siya rito, dahil napakalaking proyekto pa naman itong Legal Wives.
