Of course with the pandemic, my mother herself tested positive..so many things happened in this year. But yes, I have had good time to reflect on things.. to reflect on my personal, professional life. Where acting is concerned, of course I miss it. I just hope I haven’t forgotten it (smiles) It’s been quite sometime since I have been in front of the camera but it’s like riding a cycle. Once you’re on it.. it just takes some time and then you’re at it”.

Just the time I spent with him in these last 2 years before he passed.. walking with him from the hotel to the hospital while he was getting his chemotherapy and just walking in silence and just being around him.. it’s gone so fast but I don’t know if I have really formed words yet to tell what impact he has had on me. But I do know that it’s the largest impact a human being has had in my life so far”.
