The Maricel Soriano is an iconic figure of Philippine cinema. Known for her light-hearted comedies and heart-rending dramas, she isn’t called the “Diamond Star” for nothing. Maricel’s incredible talent for acting accompanied with her quotable lines ensured that moviegoers of all generations would remember her forever. We dare you to name any movie starring this wonderful artist and we can assure you that it was a hit.
Who could ever forget the striking scene showing a devastated Maricel attempting to stab a frightened Zsa Zsa Padilla for sleeping with her husband? That “wag mo akong ma-Terry Terry” would forever be a beloved meme for Filipinos everywhere.
But as years passed, the number of movies starring the Diamond Star began to wane. The last movie she starred in was “Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin” and that was released back in 2016. Recently, the loyal fans of this film icon received a treat regarding the actress’ comeback.
Ms. Maricel Soriano will star in the upcoming comedy film “My 2 Mommies” headlined by the likes of Solenn Heussaff, Joem Bascon, Paolo Ballesteros, and more. This movie is directed by her very good friend, Eric Quizon. We’re personally very excited to witness Maricel do her “thing on screen.
The actress’ versatility in projects like “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy” and her most recent episode in “Maalaala Mo Kaya” with JC de Vera, prove that she still has what it takes to make us laugh or cry.
People have asked why she took a long time to star in an episode of the longest running drama anthology in the country. Maricel answered their questions by saying that the well-written character she was assigned to play awakened her from her hiatus.
