Ivana Alawi is ‘not pretty’ for Cathy Garcia Molina, but that’s what happened

Cathy Garcia Molina doesn’t think Ivana Alawi is beautiful at first, but something happened and changed.

IVANA ALAWI – In a press conference, director Cathy Garcia Molina admitted she wasn’t a fan of Ivana Alawi’s beauty before.

One of the actresses with the most beautiful faces today is Ivana Alawi. She reached the peak of her fame doing vlogs. But even before her vlogging career, she is already an actress and was able to be part of the longest drama series in television history, Ang Probinsyano.

And now, with pandemic restrictions finally easing, projects have been coming their way one after the other. After doing the drama series A Family Affair, she immediately switched to comedy for her film debut.

In an MMFF 2022 film, she collaborated with multi-award winning personalities such as Kapamilya superstar Vice Ganda and multi-award winning blockbuster director Cathy Garcia Molina.

CGM admitted in a press conference that she doesn’t think Ivana is beautiful at first. She couldn’t exactly pinpoint why many people are so amused by her beauty. But then that changed when they had their cast look test.

“Ang totoo, hindi ako nagagandahan kay Ivana – up to the nag look test kami. Sabi ko, ‘Ang ganda naman palang bata nito.’ Mahal siya ng camera. Of course, siyempre, mabait. Hindi naman puwedeng hindi mabait sa akin, ‘di ba. Naggo-grow siya sa akin,” CGM said.

According to the director, the camera loves her and above all she is “mabait”. As an actress, she was also a revelation for the director. She was initially reluctant to work on the film because her forte is in rom-com, while Ivana is in drama.

But in this film she has done well in her role despite coming from a project that consists of heavy dramas. She wasn’t the social media darling in the film, but Barbara Nicole Rose Albano.
