Hollywood actor Cory Kays, the star of a sports-romance-drama film Titleholder, chose three Filipino actresses, Kapuso stars in particular, who impressed him.
In an interview with Miss Earth 2017, Karen Ibasco, Kays was presented with photographs of Kathryn Bernardo, Nadine Lustre, Liza Soberano, Erich Gonzales, Lovi Poe, Jennylyn Mercado, Marian Rivera, and Maine Mendoza.
Ibasco asked Kays to choose his top three women according to his first impressions and tagging them as Miss Congeniality, Queen of Venus, and Queen of Hearts, respectively.
Among the eight female stars, he singled out Poe as Queen of Hearts, Mendoza as Queen of Venus, and Rivera as Miss Congeniality.
The game connects with Cory’s character as Blanco. In the film, he’s an American boxer who visits the Philippines and falls in love with an aspiring Filipina beauty queen named Luzviminda.
Kays is a full-time, award-winning actor who worked consistently in films for the last three years.
His credit-worthy roles include 10 feature films, 20 short films, several commercials, and television show appearances. He has four best lead actor’ nominations alongside Ray Liotta (Goodfellas, Blow, and Field of Dreams), Judge Reinhold (Beverly Hills Cop, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, and The Santa Clause), Henry Ian Cusick (Lost, The Passage, and The Girl on the Train), and Angus Macfadyen (Braveheart).
In the Indie Horror Film Festival, he was the best lead actor for his performance in Straight Edge Kegger.
Currently, Kays is in Prodigy on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Xbox, Google Play, DirecTV, Dish Network, and FandangoNOW.
