Seasoned actress Cherie Gil is set to conduct an online acting masterclass for aspiring actors while raising funds for education.
The quintessential glamorous contrabida of Philippine films went on social media on June 26, 2020, to invite interested participants in the acting class.
“Truly excited for this,” the multi-awarded film and stage actress wrote on her Instagram post. “My very first online masterclass! Join me as we journey together through the magical, crazy, and wonderful world of creative expression through acting and more!”
Cherie Gil, who started her career as an actress since the 1970s, is set to share her learnings from her 45-year experience in the entertainment industry in the 6-day online workshop via Zoom on July 7, 9, 11, 14, 16 and 18, from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
The iconic Filipina actress who popularized the character of Lavinia Arguelles in the movie “Bituing Walang Ningning” (1985) accepts online workshop participants aged 18 years old and above.
Interested learners and aspiring actors may register through this link.
The 6-day acting masterclass costs Php 10,000 and part of the proceeds will benefit the Save our Schools Network of various non-government organizations and individuals advocating for children’s right to education.
More Filipino celebrities also actively championing children’s education include TV actress, celebrity endorser, and social media influencer Maine Mendoza who had raised funds for AlDub scholars by selling her pre-loved items online.
Maine and her former screen partner, the multi-awarded actor, and Asia’s Multimedia Star Alden Richards, were able to raise Php 14 million on their “Tamang Panahon” concert to build AlDub Libraries in selected parts of the country.
Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray has been advocating quality education for the out of school youth in Tondo Manila, long before she entered the world of pageantry.
