Mano Po 6 is one of Regal’s most successful film franchise and some of the country’s brightest actors and actresses have starred on its previous installments. In the 6th installment of the movie, Mother Lily Monteverde was able to get no less than the Mega Star Sharon Cuneta in the lead role.
After a grueling selection process and some guessing games on who will play as Sharon Cuneta’s daughter in Mano Po 6, the final pick is none other than kapuso star Heart Evangelista!
The film matriarch had a little quest for the role of Sharon’s daughter in the movie and the stars that she tried to get were Kim Chiu, Bea Alonzo, Carla Abellana, Marian Rivera and Angel Locsin. For some reasons, she was not able to cast the names mentioned because some of them are busy filming other MMFF movie or busy shooting a tv series and some have contract problems.
It came down to Heart Evangelista, who last month backed-out from the horror film “Patient X” because of health problems. Heart is now ok that’s why she accepted the role for Mano Po 6.
With Heart’s entry in the movie, Dennis Trillo finally gets his wish to work with the young actress. Dennis will play Heart’s love interest in the film. Mano Po 6 also stars Christopher de Leon, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Boots Anson Roa and Sid Lucero. It is being directed by Joel Lamangan and is set to be shown on Christmas Day.
