Kris Aquino to sign movie contract in Hollywood

  • Kris Aquino is set to sign a movie contract with an agent for a Hollywood movie
  • The revelation came from the actress herself as she said she went through an audition
  • She wrote on her Instagram account about her ordeal in being rejected by local producers last year

As the cliche goes: “If a door closes a window opens,” TV host Kris Aquino has found a fresh opportunity in her career as she is set to sign a movie contract with an agent for a Hollywood film she auditioned for.

The announcement came from no-less than the former presidential sister on April 16 when she said she is flying to Los Angeles for the contract signing, an article published by Rappler stated.

On Instagram, the bubbly actress/celebrity endorser said that before getting the offer, she went through various tests to include making an audition reel in less than 72 hours; further noting that the news was a welcome opportunity after experiencing several rejections last year.

Kris wrote on her Instagram account: “For a year, I experienced rejections. A part of my spirit broke. There were two shows I lost because hiring an Aquino for TV was a political risk not worth taking. But something happened March 23, 2017 – a Tony and Grammy Award winning Broadway producer, Jhett Tolentino, contacted me through [congresswoman] Len Alonte and Manang Nene Chan. He was helping a Filipino-Chinese-American agent friend to reach me to ask if I’d want to audition for a big Hollywood studio movie about to start filming.”

Furthermore, she added: “The pressure was I had to submit my reel in 72 hours. I felt I had nothing to lose, so we went for it. Forty-eight hours after Jhett’s call, on March 25 we mounted an audition shoot in Manila Peninsula.”

Expressing elation and excitement over the latest development in her career, she continued: “Tonight I fly to Los Angeles to meet Chris Lee, my agent, to sign my contract. I passed 5 levels of intense scrutiny and was offered a role. It is surreal to be reading the script from a major Hollywood studio watermarked on every page with my name. I signed a non-disclosure agreement so until they reveal my participation I can’t share any details about the movie and my role.”

In stating this, Kris said she hopes to give her followers encouragement to face everything that they are going through. Likewise, she thanked her family and children for being there for her especially during the most difficult times of her life.

For a year, i experienced rejections. A part of my spirit broke.

Thank you ARMADA, Direk Ricky Villabona, Jules Dacanay, DOP Shayne Sarte & her team, Juan Sarte, Nante Alingasa, Kimi Yap, my finance guru Nicko Falcis, Alvin, and the entire Kris Online team, plus Atty Joji’s Quantum Post Production for the unwavering faith. We shot, they immediately edited & color graded, both my audition scenes & video BIO. Sunday we sent the high definition material. And we waited. And PRAYED. Tonight I fly to Los Angeles to meet Chris Lee, my agent to sign my contract. I passed 5 levels of intense scrutiny and was offered a role. It is surreal to be reading the script from a major Hollywood studio watermarked on every page with my name. I signed a non disclosure agreement so until they reveal my participation I can’t share any details about the movie & my role. But today Easter Sunday- I wanted you to know my story… I pray it gives you encouragement & hope. I am proof that in life doors will shut & there will be heartbreaking setbacks but FAITH in God’s plan will open new, unexpected doors. We just need to trust in His Love, Provision, Restoration & Perfect Timing. Grace is unmerited; it’s God’s Gift we humbly receive with a heart overflowing with Gratitude. To my siblings & sons- I share this blessing w/ you. THANK YOU for being my strength. ??
