SHE WANTS CHANGE: Like President Rody, 2016 Moscow International Film festival best actress winner Teri Malvar wants change.
In an interview, the 15-year old actress said she likes to do teledramas, but would prefer stories that are out of the ordinary.
Terri, whose screen name is actually Therese Malvar, acknowledged that she hasn’t really done a number of teleseryes.
Only a few, she said.
‘If and when I make some new ones, I wish they would be something with a different story, ’yung kakaiba,’ she added.

INTERNATIONAL AWARDS: A child of indie films where her star has started to shine bright not just locally but also internationally, Therese or Terri won her first best actress award in the very first film that she acted in, “Ang Huling Cha-Cha ni Anita” (Cine Filipino Film Festival, 2013).
She says she entered the scene completely innocent, with a clean slate. She had never acted before, and never took part in any acting workshop.
‘I was just inspired by my mother, who dabbles in theater sa PETA,’ she said.
It was only when she joined GMA Artist Center that she took her first acting workshop.
GMA Network has been quick to laud Therese Malvar for her international awards
The young actress received from the recently concluded New York Asian Film Festival the Screen International Rising Star Asia award.
Almost simultaneously, she was presented the Silver St. George Best Actress award in the 38th Moscow International Film Festival for her performance in Ralston Jover’s film, “Hamog.”
“Hamog” tells the story of young delinquents who commit crime in order to survive. Therese plays the role of “Jinky”, a child of the street, strong, confident, cunning.
Aside from ‘Hamog’, Therese proved her remarkable talent in other critically acclaimed films such as “Child Haus,” “Sakaling Hindi Makarating,” and “Ang Huling Cha-Cha ni Anita.” (NESTOR CUARTERO)
