MULING PUMIRMA ng three-year exclusive contract ang tinaguriang TV5 Princess (on a season basis, says she) na si Jasmine Curtis-Smith contrary to speculations that the young actress is bolting the gates of her home studio.
This early part in her career, Jasmine has so far scored a feat that stars her age have not achieved, isa rito ang kanyang Best Supporting Actress trophy in the recent Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival para sa pelikulang Transit, na tinanghal na Best Picture at opisyal na kalahok ng bansa sa Oscars.
This explains why TV5 looks at her as the network’s prized possession. At sa loob nga ng tatlong taon niyang muling pananatili sa istasyon, isang weekly series titled Jasmine for 2014 will serve as the ultimate test to her acting.
Bukod dito, magiging abala rin si Jasmine sa hosting. But what’s most significant among all these breaks ay ang film project ng TV5, a collaboration among the network, a reputable advertising agency and Unitel.
During the open forum, naitanong namin kay Jasmine who does she sincerely believe is her counterpart in GMA and in ABS-CBN. While most stars perhaps would come up with specific names given the same question, sabi ni Jasmine ay wala sinuman sa dalawang network ang kanyang co-equal.
Speaking for TV5, ani Jasmine, the station is offering shows that the audience has never seen yet, but would be eager to watch.
