Nakatanggap ng papuri si Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz mula sa mga bida ng Netflix original series na “Insatible” na sina Debbie Ryan at Dallas Roberts.
Dumating sa Pilipinas sina Debbie at Dallas para i-promote ang season 2 ng “Insatiable”.
Si Debbie Ryan ay gumaganap bilang si Patty Bladell, isang dating overweight teen na biglang pumayat at ginu-groom na maging isang beauty queen ni Bob Armstrong, isang lawyer-turned-pageant coach na ginagampanan ni Dallas.
Sa naganap na media conference para sa naturang Netflix series, maganda ang sinabi nila Debbie at Dallas sa pakikipagtrabaho kay Gloria.
Ayon kay Debbie: “She’s such a force and so formidable… We were aware that the show was received beautifully in the Philippines, which was so humbling and so exciting.
“So then, as we studied the culture, Gloria is an undeniable part of pageant culture here. So we will have a different version of her in the show.
“She was regal and she was professional, and she wanted to do the right job. Just because she was this legacy doesn’t mean she didn’t come in just like every other actor and wanted to do a good job. And that was inspiring.”
Sey naman ni Dallas: “I read in the script that this diva of beauty pageants comes and he (Bob, his character) is super intimidated by her… You just read it on the page and you’re like, ‘Oh, it better be someone cool.’
“And it’s Gloria Diaz! It’s like you don’t have to act at all. She was really intimidating and beautiful and regal, and it was amazing.”
Parehong first time na makarating sa Pilipinas ang dalawang Hollywood stars at gusto nga nilang i-explore ang mga magagandang lugar ng bansa.
Sey ni Debbie: “I find it beautiful. I’ve always wanted to go and this is my first time in Manila, or in the Philippines in general.
“The first crush I ever had was this boy in class, he was so beautiful and he was Filipino.
“And so ever since then, I had this in my mind that Filipinos are the most beautiful people. And I love anything tropical, give me a palm tree or a citrus dish and I’m happy.
“Dallas gets to go and I have to run back home. He gets to stay and have some fun so I’m going to make him send all the photos from the time he’s here. I want to come back and make a full trip out of it, now that I know it’s awesome.”
Sey naman ni Dallas: “When I’m done doing this work, I’m going to go to Palawan… I invited a guest to come with me.
“We’re going to stay in like a tent on a tree. We’re gonna go from this hotel to the sand and the earth and big hats. I can’t wait.” (Ruel Mendoza)
