After the unfortunate fate of her travel special “Trip Ni Kris”, the Queen of All Media is ready to try new things.
This time, Kris Aquino proudly announced that she was blessed with a new and huge project… in Hollywood!
In her Instagram post on April 16, Kris shared how a part of her spirit broke when she lost two shows “because hiring an Aquino for TV was a political risk not worth taking.”
But, things have changed when she got a call from Tony and Grammy award-winning Broadway producer Jhett Tolentino. Kris revealed that Jhett contacted her last March 23.
“He was helping a Filipino-Chinese-American agent friend of his reach me to ask if I’d want to audition for a big Hollywood studio movie about to start filming. The pressure was I had to submit my reel in 72 hours,” she revealed in the caption.
Kris elaborated that she felt that she had nothing to lose, thus she went for it, and mounted an audition shoot in Manila.
“We shot, they immediately edited & color graded, both my audition scenes & video BIO. Sunday we sent the high definition material. And we waited. And PRAYED,” she continued.
The 46-year-old’s prayer were answered as she revealed that she is set to fly to the United States on the same day of her Instagram post to sign her contract.
The host shared, “I passed 5 levels of intense scrutiny and was offered a role. It is surreal to be reading the script from a major Hollywood studio watermarked on every page with my name.”
However, due to a non-disclosure agreement she signed, Kris said she is not yet allowed to reveal anything the details for her project. Kris decided to share her story just in time for Easter Sunday instead.
“I wanted you to know my story… I pray it gives you encouragement & hope. I am proof that in life doors will shut & there will be heartbreaking setbacks but FAITH in God’s plan will open new, unexpected doors. We just need to trust in His Love, Provision, Restoration & Perfect Timing. Grace is unmerited; it’s God’s Gift we humbly receive with a heart overflowing with Gratitude,” she wrote.
In the end, the former Kapamilya thanked her siblings and sons for always being her strength.
