Ms. Gina Pareno | Ms. Gina Pareño
Did You Know?
"Thank goodness I now know how it feels to be on the blue carpet!" -- relating her overwhelming experience at the 39th Moscow International Film Festival, July 2, 2006. Ms Pareño felt like a bankable name star, although in the Philippines she was relegated to motherly and grandmotherly roles. The Russian paparazzi and movie people kept applauding her.
Her firstborn, a son, was born in 1969, one year after she was given her launching movie, Mama!
(1966). Gina also had two more children, a son and a daughter, Jannica, who recently tried to foray into the movies. (The eldest son passed away).
