Prima Donna Cristine Reyes Works Well With Ashley Ortega

Cristine Reyes: Diva

By Ricky Calderon

Kapuso teenstar Ashley Ortega admits that she is excited with the forthcoming release of the movie “Spirit of the Glass 2: The Haunted,” where she is one of the lead stars. But she also can’t help but feel nervous, too, since it is her first major screen role even if she has been in showbiz for five years.

She had appeared in a few movies but did mostly bit roles. That is why “Spirit of the Glass 2” is special to her because she gets to play an important role in the movie produced by OctoArts Films showing today, November 1.

She is also very thankful with the chance to work with Direk Jose Javier Reyes. For an acting newbie who is getting her first big acting break, she considers it a big honor to work with a veteran filmmaker.

Ashley, the young girl from the Jollibee commercial that swept the heart of the nation recently, shows that even in her young life, the value of loyalty is worth embracing. 

While she juggles her schedule over tapings for “Super Ma’am” and the shoot of this movie, Ashley says her hosting chores for Willie Revillame’s “Wowowin” on GMA 7 is still a priority to her.


Thankful To Willie

"I am thankful to Kuya (referring to Willie) for his support and all his help to me. I know I have found the best people to work with in this business. The movie brought me more friends. Direk Joey is so cool. I just love him,” said Ashley.

She has a one-year, three-picture contract with OctoArts Films where she is supposed to do three movies. Boss Orly Ilacad of OctoArts said he is willing to let Ashley do movies outside the studio as long the material is good. 

“We want Ashley’s career to grow and prosper,” said Boss Orly. “If there is a good script and the role fits Ashley, we will allow her to accept the project.”


Fun time with Maxine Medina 

Ashley said she had a fun time working with Maxine Medina, the former Bb. Pilipinas who is making her acting debut in the movie, and Cristine Reyes. 

While Cristine has this image of being “pasaway,” Ashley said that she and Maxine did not experience the “bad” side of Cristine. 

“She was really so fun to be with. Ang saya namin magkakasama working together. We bonded well,” said Ashley who is paired with newbie actor Enrico Cuenca in this horror film.
