Another GMA Artist Center (GMAAC) talent is slowly making her way into the international scene as she essays the lead role in an international film shot in its entirety in Indonesia recently.
The pretty and talented Gwen Zamora just arrived from a couple of months’ shoot. She is the leading actress in the independently-produced film “The Witness’ by Indonesian producer Skylar Pictures based in PT. Mutiara Warna in Indonesia. The movie is helmed by famous Indonesian director Muhammad Yusuf.
The movie paves the way for a mutually beneficial partnership between GMAAC and Skylar Pictures as the latter is now officially the partner of local network in Indonesia. “Expect more international projects for our very own artists from GMAAC to come out of this partnership,” GMAAC head Ida Henares said.
In the movie, Gwen plays the role of the only surviving member of a family that has been massacred while inside their home. The tragic experience left the young woman, Angel Flordeliza Isagani, in a state of shock and panic, nightmares and premonitions marring her once upon a time peaceful existence. She ends up confined in a hospital where she continued to be haunted by the terrible memory of her family’s death. This is where the movie begins to unfold as a suspense-thriller.
Gwen said the experience of filming in Indonesia was physically taxing but “I was not complaining because I have learned a lot. I loved every minute of working with the outstanding cast and crew there,” she said.
Gwen had been handpicked to play the role when the producers saw her at the GMAAC office when they purposedly traveled to Manila to cast the leading lady in “The Witness.”
Director Muhammad Yusuf said Gwen’s beauty stunned them in the beginning but her acting proved to be another excellent story. “We are very pleased with her work for ‘The Witness,’ he said.
Working with an Indonesian staff came easy for Gwen, being a product of different cultures by blood and upbringing - including French, Italian, Vietnamese and Filipino.
The well-traveled Gwen said of her childhood experience, “having been ‘ping-ponged’ from one country to another made me very street-smart. I can talk to different people and connect with them since my values and ideologies are multi-cultural,” she said. That background certainly came in handy for the actress for this specific project.
Gwen first caught our attention as the “Faye” in Vic Sotto’s “Enteng Kabisote” film festival entry last year. Born in Australia, Gwen took up digital filmmaking course in College of St. Benilde before she was spotted by GMAAC and became its contract artist.
The young actress knows what she wants in the business. “I always put my heart and soul into anything I do. I’m pretty confident I can handle anything thrown my way. I love challenges,” she points out as she looks at the Indonesian film as probably one of the nicest things that this business has thrown her way this early.
