Anne Curtis has no delusions of grandeur about her first Hollywood movie. And she doesn’t want her fans to have any either.
“First of all, it is an indie film,” she starts when asked to describe “Blood Ransom” which she just finished filming on June 24. “I don’t want people to have the wrong idea that it is an A-lister movie. It’s not.”
Anne spent a full month in Los Angeles for the filming of the thriller. Little is known about the plot of the movie and Anne’s role other than that the character is a “missing person”, as the film’s first wave of teaser posters reveal.
The 26-year old actress did not divulge any detail about the movie before she left to shoot it. She remains tight-lipped until now, and it’s because she simply is not permitted to talk about it at length yet.
What she could and would say is that the producers were looking specifically for Filipino talent. “But apparently it was my acting,” she notes of the reason why she was chosen for the role.
That she doesn’t look like a typical brown-skinned Filipino did not matter at all. The character’s ethnicity is never mentioned in the story anyway.
“It was a new experience for me. Unforgettable. I super enjoyed it. If I’d be given the chance to do another (Hollywood movie), I’d do it in a heartbeat,” she volunteers.
For now Anne has her hands full with various projects. She has resumed hosting duties in “Showtime”, which she says she missed. She will resume taping her new teleserye, “Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw”, and her follow-up movie to “No Other Woman” for her home studio, Viva Entertainment.
On top of that is her “No Other Concert” tour which just started its provincial leg in General Santos City over the weekend. “May Hongkong daw kami, so bongga!” she enthuses. “Finally totoong world tour na siya. Exciting!”
