Gina Pareño reveals why she needs to be hired amidst old age, pandemic

When asked what she’d do if she never gets the chance to act again, the actress looked at the camera and urged people in the entertainment industry to give her a shot

Veteran actress Gina Pareño couldn’t hold back her tears as she revealed to Ogie Diaz that she still wanted to act.

Pareño’s last project was Tililing, a musical black comedy film written and directed by the controversial Darryl Yap, released in 2021.

Since then, she’s been at home making TikTok videos. In an interview with Diaz, Pareño said she’d like to be involved in future acting projects.

Gusto ko pa umarte. Nakakaloka ang hindi umarte,” she said.

Pareño hopes she gets the opportunity to work with her daughter Racquel, a phenomenal actress in her own right.

When asked what she’d do if she never got the chance to act again, the actress looked at the camera and urged people in the entertainment industry to give her a shot.

Uy! Alukin naman ninyo ako. Kunin naman niyo ako,”

During her spare time, Pareño would practice her acting skills in her room.

Kinakausap ko yung sarili ko. Pero hindi pa ako nababaliw. Ayos pa ako,

Gustong-gusto ko pang umarte. Sana makasama ko kayong muli. Sana mabigyan ako ng role.”

She misses having lights and cameras surrounding her.

Ito, gusto ko yung naiilawan akong ganyan at saka may kamera nakikita ko,”

Not being in the acting scene makes her feel like she has been left out.

Nakakalungkot parang wala nang nagmamahal sa akin. Hindi ako nakakaarte, e,” she said.

Pareño also denied that she is lesbian despite admitting that she is a member of the LGBTQ community. Talking to the Cabinet Files on July 19, the actress said she knew nothing about the gay movement.

Hindi ko alam ang mga LBM, LGU, LGBTQ na ‘yan,” she said. “I’m all woman! Hello!” she added.

Pareño was in an intimate relationship with former actress Milagros “Bong” Eraña, who has passed away.

First time ko na makipagrelasyon sa tomboy, pero hindi ibig sabihin, tomboy rin ako o member ng LGBTQ.

Kapag ang puso ko ang tumibok, hindi importante sa akin kung member ka ng LGBTQ o kung anuman ang term na hindi naman ako pamilyar.” she explained.


Pareño began her acting career in the late ’90s and has won multiple acting awards.
