Congratulations to GMA Network's multi-awarded actress Jaclyn Jose who bagged the best actress award at this year's Cannes Film Festival in France for her role in "Ma' Rosa," a film by renowned director Brillante Mendoza.
“I don't know what to say. I am so surprised. I just went to have the red carpet walk with my daughter—my real life daughter and my daughter in the movie,” the actress said in her speech.
“Thank you to Cannes. Thank you to the jury. Thank you to Mr. Brillante Mendoza. I was just following whatever he’s saying and telling me to do. He is such a brilliant director in the Philippines. I would also like to share this recognition to all the Filipinos who are here now, to my daughter, to Brillante, to my countrymen, to the Philippines” she continued.
Jaclyn is currently part of GMA Network’s afternoon series “The Millionaire’s Wife” playing an antagonist role in the character of Stella Vergara-Montecillo, a spoiled, rich woman.
Proving her versatility, the seasoned actress is also top billing the newest sexy comedy sitcom of the Network, A1 Ko Sa’yo!, as Digna Molina, a tactless and frustrated Miss Universe aspirant who manages a talent firm. The show is set to air this June on GMA Pinoy TV.
