Janella Salvador to show different side of OFWs in 'Under Parallel Skies'

MANILA, March 7 ------ With her new film "Under Parallel Skies" with Thai actor Win Metawin, Kapamilya actress Janella Salvador hopes to show a different side to our overseas Filipino workers.


In "Under Parallel Skies," Salvador plays Filipino hotelier Iris, who works in Hong Kong and crosses paths with Parin (Metawin).


In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Salvador described Iris as someone who's quirky. "Napanood ko 'yung 'Hello Love Goodbye,' it's more of a drama rin. Siguro 'yung atake rin siya may pagka-drama pero 'yung character ko rito, she's a bit quirky," the actress told ABS-CBN News. "Direk Sig (Bernardo) actually likes creating characters that are quite quirky, may pagka-comedy din siya. It's not just gonna be all heavy, it's kilig, drama, but at the same time you'll gonna feel warm and laugh," she added.


With the film, Salvador hopes audiences would see that people are connected despite our cultural differences. "Maganda 'yung sinabi nila kanina na, despite all our differences, even if we're from different parts of the world, we're all under the same sky," Salvador said. "We're all connected, we're all capable of loving each. I think that's a really nice way to look at the film" "Under Parallel Skies" will have its grand premiere at the 17th Asian Film Awards (AFA) in Hong Kong on March 11 followed by its Philippine premiere on April 17. "Under Parallel Skies" will also open in Singapore cinemas on May 1 and Thailand movie theaters on May 9.
