Pokwang to Work with American Actors in Movie 'Ms Edsa Woolworth'

Posted on April 12, 2014 | 7:25 PM

After winning international critical acclaim for her powerful performance in the drama, “A Mother’s Story”, which garnered 18 FAMAS nominations in 2012, actress-comedienne Pokwang was tapped anew by TFC@theMovies to star in its second film offering, Ms Edsa Woolworth.

Pokwang Stars in TFC Movie Ms Edsa Woolworth

According to film director John-D Lazatin, who also received a FAMAS nomination for his direction of “A Mother’s Story,” shooting for the new family romantic comedy film will begin this May in the U.S.

Asked why Pokwang was chosen again to star in TFC’s new movie, Lazatin replied: “Pokwang is one of those rare gifted, versatile actresses who is very relatable.  Moviegoers identify or empathize with her characters.  Her on- and off-screen personas are also very positive that she’s able to inject humor and lightness even in the face of most dire challenges in life.  She projects the character of our overseas Filipinos that TFC serves worldwide.”

While production remains tight-lipped about the exciting film project, Lazatin shared that Ms Edsa Woolworth will have a strong Filipino and American cast.  

A bit of reveal about the title: Pokwang plays Edsa (short for Epifania de los Santos) whose mother remarried an American named Frank Woolworth. The comedy focuses on the interracial relationships of three adult Filipinos taking care of their white stepfather.

The film will be released later in 2014 as part of TFC’s 20th anniversary celebration.  More information on Ms Edsa Woolworth coming out soon on tfc-usa.com/AtTheMovies.
