Actress-writer Bela Padilla, alongside veteran actor Aga Muhlach and child actress Xia Vigor, is set to star in the Filipino adaptation of the Korean family melodrama film Miracle in Cell No.7, which is Viva Film’s official entry in the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival 2019.
During the two-day Viva Convention held last August 3 and 4, we were able to interview Bela about her abovementioned upcoming project with Aga. And she said she’s beyond excited for what’s in store for them.
“I’m excited and feeling ko naman lahat ng babae sa showbiz ’yon ’yong pangarap so salamat…salamat po,” said Bela as she fangirled over Aga for a moment.
The 28-year-old actress also mentioned that she had already met the actor during the film’s look test.
Bela also said she doesn’t mind at all that she’s only the second choice. And she’s confident that Nadine Lustre feels satisfied about her taking on the role.
“I haven’t seen Nadine [Lustre] yet pero napanood ko ’yong interview niya saTWBA (Tonight With Boy Abunda),” said Bela. “And I’m happy that she’s happy na I’m taking the role. Obviously, I want to work with her din someday pero right now I’m happy to take it off her hands.”
