Who is Jessy Mendiola anxious to work With?
Jessy Mendiola has proven that she has what it takes to be a star after top billing ‘Maria Mercedes.’ She has mentioned that the role helped boost her confidence, but the 21-year-old actress is still tense when it comes to working with acclaimed actor John Lloyd Cruz.
Jessy is starring in a still unnamed film with the 30-year-old dramatic actor under Star Cinema. The film’s production started yesterday and Jessy said she was ‘nervous’ for the first shooting day.
‘First day of shooting. It feels like first day of school,’ tweeted Jessy.
Jessy had mentioned in past interviews that she feels tense about the prospect of working with John Lloyd. The Maria Mercedes actress added that she feels really pressured to be working with a ‘very good actor’ such as John Lloyd, whom she looks up to and idolises.
But Jessy seemed to have successfully calmed her nerves as she later on tweeted: ‘Woooooh!! Survived first day shooting!!! YES!!’
Her inclusion in the film came as a surprise to the part-British actress. She shared that she found out she bagged the role after seeing it on the evening news.
Jessy will be playing a mature role in the film, which she described as ‘very out of the box’ and ‘a tragic family love story.’
Joining her and John Lloyd are veteran actors Vivian Velez, John Estrada and Gretchen Barretto.
