Charee Pineda & LJ Reyes' Loss Is Jackie Rice's Gain As The 3rd Wife In 'sitio Camcam'

CHAREE PINEDA resigned from her role as the ambitious third wife of Allen Dizon in “Sitio Camcam” because she’s worried the sexy scene the character is required to do might affect her standing as a councilor in Valenzuela. The role was also earlier offered to LJ Reyes, who also begged off.

Producer Dennis Evangelista says they finally found a replacement and it’s Jackie Rice. Joey Abacan of GMA-7 is offering two other actresses but Director Joel Lamangan preferred to choose Jackie. Well, we’re happy for Jackie. She’s sexy and she can act and we know she’ll be able to tackle the role well. This might be the big break she needs to prove to all and sundry that she can play more demanding lead roles.

Charee and LJ’s loss is definitely Jackie’s gain because the role of the third wife as a power-hungry and greedy bida-kontrabida dominates the movie from start to end. She will be the pivotal character who’d trigger the big conflict between the other characters in the story, notably between the first and second wives played respectively by Jean Garcia and Sunshine Dizon. “Magsisisi sina Charee at LJ na tinanggihan nila ang role,” adds Dennis. “Puedeng pang-award ito and with Direk Joel motivating Jackie, sana mai-deliver niya ng tama ang character niya.”

Dennis is also busy with the production of the Pampango movie, “Ang Magkakabaong” (The Coffin Maker), with Allen Dizon as a coffin maker in Pampanga who had to make a desperate and drastic move after his daughter died and he had no money to pay for their hospital expenses. This movie is under the direction of Jason Paul Laxamana who made waves in last year’s “Babagwa”.
