"Congkak" Media Screening

Acclaimed Malaysian child star Erynne Erynna, who co-stars with Filipino actors Jericho Rosales and Albert Martinez in the upcoming soap “Kahit Isang Saglit”, is in Manila to promote her horror film “Congkak.”

Eleven-year-old Erynne won a Best Actress award in 2007 for her role in the film. She is elated and excited to be in the country and finds Filipinos very friendly.

“I love the people. I like the place I've been to like Greenhills. It's similar to Malaysia,” says Erynne who has just finished shooting “Kahit Isang Saglit” with Jericho, Albert and fellow Malaysian star Carmen Su.

Carmen Su plays Gari, the series' leading lady. It isErynne who plays Gari as a young girl. “It is a very demanding role but I like it,” says the child star.

In the course of the TV shoot in Malaysia, Rosales and Martinez have become Erynne's friends and surrogate elder brothers.

“Jericho and Albert are great. They're very friendly,” said Erynne.

The child star said that Filipino actors are very wonderful to work with. She feels sad, however, when she remembers the early demise of her Filipino director Gilbert Perez. “He was very supportive of me. I miss him,” Erryne recalls.

Perez, she recounts, chose her to play the young Gari because of her resemblance to the actress.

Erynne's mother, the young and equally beautiful Kelly, is also sad about the unexpected death of Gilbert. “I was shocked when I heard the news. Actually, the news that he suffered a fatal heart attack also reached us in Malaysia and I was also sad about it. He was too young to die,” she said.

Kelly is also uncomfortable hearing sob stories about Filipino actors who are sick especially when she saw on TV that Albert and wife Liezl Martinez are hounded by reports of a family member being stricken by cancer.

“I wish the news is false alarm. I've been close to Albert when Erynne did the soap with him. We always exchange text messages, and things like this doesn't feel good,” says Kelly.

Erynne attended the premiere showing of “Congkak” last Monday at the Robinsons Galleria Cinema 6.

This is her second movie to date but promises to slow down on show biz commitments. “We've been around Asia to promote like Singapore but I still love to go to school.”
