Kris’s new turf

YES! (Philippines) - - Stargazing -

Kris Aquino, who has found a new niche in so­cial me­dia and a fresh batch of fans among mil­len­ni­als, is the brand am­bas­sador of iflix, the Asia-based video ser­vice and stream­ing me­dia com­pany.

The ac­tress and TV host had a photo shoot for her lat­est prod­uct en­dorse­ment last July 4 at Siren Stu­dios in Makati City. At the photo shoot, she told a se­lect group of me­dia re­porters that she’s also slated to do a big project for iflix.

“I’m not al­lowed to say what the project is,” Kris said. “Pero since ang dal­dal ko, I’m gonna re­veal lang some­thing: it’s an orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion.”

Barely con­tain­ing her laugh­ter, she added that the orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion would be aired on her birth­day next year, Fe­bru­ary 14, and while she waits for its air­ing date, she can’t ac­cept any other film of­fers.

“I re­ally su­per did re­search ’cause I don’t wanna be em­bar­rassed in front of all of you to­day,” the ar­tic­u­late showbiz star told me­dia re­porters dur­ing the post-shoot in­ter­view.

She then went on to enu­mer­ate some of the sell­ing points of iflix, such as hav­ing a cheaper price than its clos­est com­peti­tor and hav­ing a com­plete li­brary of Filipino films. She also liked that iflix car­ries her fa­vorite Hol­ly­wood TV se­ries— The Good Wife, Closer, Friends, Gos­sip Girl, Men­tal­ist, and Re­venge— as well as the hor­ror movie fran­chise Fi­nal Desti­na­tion and the ro­man­tic flick (500) Days of Sum­mer.

In be­tween takes, Kris ban­tered with her glam team: (L-R) hair and makeup artist Jonathan Ve­lasco; fash­ion stylists Kim and Boop Yap, who are sis­ters; and makeup artist RB Chanco.
