John Lloyd Cruz,

she may have captured the imagination of broadway, but as a film actress, Lea Salonga has the habit of using her theater skills to get her point across. you can see it here in her hamming. in the film medium, she has the habit of using a sledge hammer rather than the subtle strokes of a brush to paint a character. a film career in hollywood would elude her, although she may still be bankable in her own country given the dearth of half-decent actresses in the philippines. other than that, she can only take on what broadway has to offer . this would explain why she never really was able to break into hollywood. sure, she'd had her chance, starring in a tv movie with jeff daniels. but that was it. even her guest appearance in e.r. was forgettable, given her ability to overact and ham it up for the tv screen.
