Ella Cruz is excited about her upcoming movie, “Gluta”, seeing that she has a lot of similarities with the character she plays in the movie.
As reported on Push, the 25 year-old actress, who spoke to the media at the virtual press conference held by Viva Films, stated that she plays Angel, an indigenous girl who dreams of becoming a beauty queen.
“I could relate because I really wanted to be a beauty queen then. I told that to director Darryl [Yap], I said, ‘You know, Direk Darryl when I was a kid my dream was to be a beauty queen.’ I participate in all of those contests at school.” “But here I am destined to be an actress because my height is not that of a beauty queen. But we know, there are no height requirements now,” she said.
Ella also stated that just like her character in the movie, she has also learned to accept who she is as a person.
“I used to not accept all my flaws but I’ve recently learned to love them, to embrace them and to be better identified, ‘Oh, here, this is Ella. If I wasn’t small I wouldn’t be Ella,” she added.
“Gluta” will be airing on 2 July through streaming platforms of iWantFC, ktx.ph, and VivaMax.
