Solenn Heussaff sizzles in Ginebra Calendar Photos

SOLENN HEUSSAFF gets to do her first drama film in Regal’s filmfest entry “Yesterday Today Tomorrow”. “This is my third film after ‘Valentine Girls’ and ‘Temptation Island’, both very light compared to this one,” she says. “I’m the daughter of Ronaldo Valez and Agot Isidro. Ronaldo has two previous kids, Maricel Soriano and Jericho Rosales. Maricel is my boss in our company but she doesn’t like me. She’s very harsh on me and I’m scared of her. I’m on with Paulo Avelino, but I’m already bored with him so I fall for a gym instructor, Dennis Trillo, without knowing he’s having an affair with my mom at dati palang macho dancer. Big challenge ito for me as it’s my first serious role. Ang daming drama scenes.”

How did she prepare for her role? “We had workshops and I want to thank my co-stars for being very patient with me. Tinuturuan nila ko. Mabait sila sa’kin.”

How is it working with Maricel? “She’s very nice. She’s actually a comedian. Always joking on the set kaya masaya kami.”

Is she really going on with rugby player Gareth Holgate? “No, we’re just childhood friends. I have no boyfriend now. Ako naman, happy, may boyfriend o wala.”

2012 is her breakout year. Her exposure in “Survivor” led to movies, TV show, a debut album and now, she’s the Ginebra 2012 Calendar Girl replacing her future sister in law, Anne Curtis. “It’s an honor. The calendar comes with me in five different poses by Marc Nicdao. I like the jungle version most with me in curly hair as it reminds of ‘Survivor’.”

And why did Ginebra choose Solenn? “She’s our unanimous choice,” says marketing VP Nelson Elises. “She’s beauty and brains, has many talents and people from all walks of life can relate with her. She’s like our flagsip Ginebra San Miguel, a product that remains relevant and is still patronized by our core market.”
