Screen star Lovi Poe is on cloud 9 these days. Reason for this are the glowing reviews she received for portraying Iris Castillo-del Rosario in the Philippine adaptation of Flower of Evil, her first entry in the suspense—mystery and action genre.
“At least for the duration of this series, I fulfilled my dream of being an action queen,” says Lovi. “The people on set started calling me LPJ or DA Queen in reference to my father, FPJ, and I really enjoyed having that illusion, even if it’s just for a short moment.”
As a police detective in Flower of Evil, Lovi was required to do a lot of action sequences, fight scenes, and chase scenes, and instead of a purse, her accessory this time is a handgun.
“I’m really proud of our show, and I am extremely grateful for having the best production staff, the best directors, and a wonderful cast”, admits Lovi. “I loved working with all my co-actors in the show because they were extremely dedicated to the project, Piolo Pascual, my leading man, was very supportive and encouraging, and so were Paulo Avelino, JC De Vera, and the rest of the cast.”
What’s next for Lovi? The actress will again show another facet of her personality with her musical skills, this time, to our fellow Filipinos in the United States, as she takes part in Asap Natin To tour to be staged on November 5 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
