What’s next for seasoned actress Tessie Tomas when “The Blood Sisters” ends tomorrow? Well, she’s off to The Isle of Man.
Tessie who plays Dr. Rosemarie “Mamita” Bermudez on the series said that she would be gone for a month. But it’s not all vacationing for the multi-talented Tessie as she also plans to pursue her dream indie film project.
According to her, the passion to produce indie film was fuelled by the 15 indie films she has done. Tessie even bagged recently the Best Actress award for her role in “Old Skool” at the first Subic Bay International Film Festival.
She said that from her experience, she now understands the framework of an indie film and what appeals to the audience. “I also have a lot of ideas because I’m also a writer,” she quipped.
Tessie is also working on her memoirs.
“The Blood Sisters” starring Erich Gonzales as the triplets Carrie, Agatha and Erika, ran for almost seven months.
