Here in the Philippines, it’s impossible for one not to know Anne Curtis, unless he or she lives under a rock.

One of ABS-CBN’s biggest talents, Curtis has had box-office hit movies, top-rating soaps and shows, and even a sold-out concert.

Her face can also be seen all over the country through billboards and other advertisements, being one of the Philippines’ top product endorsers.

But all that fame faded away the moment she entered the entertainment scene in the United States, where Curtis humbly said she is a “nobody.”

The Filipino-Australian actress made the statement a month after shooting her first foreign film “Blood Ransom” in California.

”There, I’m a nobody. We’re all starting from scratch. It was so good working with people na starting din sa industry doon,” Curtis said, referring to her co-stars in the film.

She said, however, that she is happy to be working with a completely new team. ”It was a different world and experience. It was so much fun working with amazing people – the director Francis dela Torre, our cinematographer Jasmine Kuhn, and then we have our producer Barclay DeVeau who’s so nice.”

Curtis said she is happy to have her first indie film in “Blood Ransom,” which is still in post-production.

She hopes that the film will also make it to international film festivals.  (MNS)
