Jasmine Curtis-Smith will shed more light on the discrimination against frontliners.
GMA’s mini-series I Can See You: Love On The Balcony will star Jasmine and Alden Richards, but it is more than a cliche love story.
Jasmine plays a nurse named Lea Carbonel while Alden is Gio, a wedding videographer. The new show will let viewers know the challenges frontliners are facing amid the coronavirus pandemic.
It is an accurate representation of what is happening today. Lea is one of the thousands of nurses in this country who have been sacrificing a lot during the public health crisis.
“What makes Lea, my character, interesting I think for the audience is the insight sa pamumuhay ng frontliners ngayon,” Jasmine said.
She pointed out that there is discrimination since nurses usually work in hospitals.
“Kung paano nila tinatanggap ‘yung, I guess, pambabatikos dahil may discrimination din because they are exposed to the setting of the hospital,” the actress said.
The mini-series is part of the I Can See You drama anthology. Pancho Magno, Denise Barbacena, and Shyr Valdez co-star.
Jasmine recently denied rumors that she was pregnant with boyfriend Jeff Ortega’s child after fans brought up a picture of her at the beach.
Medical frontliners are considered modern-day heroes for their indispensable contribution during this difficult time. Unfortunately, these people are still underpaid, particularly the nurses.
Not only that, President Rodrigo Duterte previously dared frontliners to stage a revolution after they complained about the government’s approach to the pandemic.
