Cherry Pie Picache unlearns acting in Foster Child
Internationally acclaimed actress.
That’s what Cherry Pie Picache is trying to get used to after winning the Best Actress award at the 9th Osian’s Cinefan International Film Festival for Foster Child, which is opening in cinemas nationwide today.
In the movie, she plays a foster mother named Thelma. As a volunteer for a non-government organization taking care of abandoned children, she takes care of very young orphans before they are legally adopted.
Award-winning scriptwriter Ralston Jover (Kubrador) pointed out that Thelma was based on a real-life foster mother whose every day routine he thoroughly followed when he conceptualized the story. Even during the writing of the shooting script, he kept on coming back to the real-life Thelma.
