Jasmine Curtis Smith Can't Join 'Transit' To Busan Int'l Filmfest Due To Her Final Exams

JASMINE CURTIS SMITH won’t be able to join the entourage of “Transit” that will be going to the Busan International Filmfest in Korea this month. “I’m having my final exams for the first semester,” she tells us at the launch of TV5’s Everyday All the Way where she’s part of the “Tropa Mo Ko Unli” team. “Right after the exams, I fly to Melbourne while on sem break.”

Up to now, she still can’t believe that she’d win an acting award for her very first movie and “Transit” was even chosen to represent our country at the Oscar Awards best foreign language film category. “I’m really thankful that the judges thought that I deserved to get the award as best supporting actress in Cinemalaya,” she says. “It now motivates me to do better in my acting career. To think that my original dream was to be a lawyer or a teacher. But now, I’ve learned how to love being an actress and embrace the perks and all the good things about the industry kasi I understood it na. I saw how fun it was from my ate’s (Anne Curtis) point of view but when I finally jumped into it I got to understand how much fun it is to actually be the one involved in it.”

Her contract with TV5 is expiring next month. Is she renewing it? “May offers from other networks but okay naman sa akin ang TV5 so I think I will renew with them.”
