Kim Chiu Voted Star Most Likely to Succeed on Female Network
The votes have been counted, and the My Binondo Girl actress got the top spot on our list of 30 actresses under 30. By Marianne Salazar
Last July, we compiled a list of 30 of the most popular female stars under 30 and asked you to vote for the actress whom you think would have the most successful career. The results have been tallied, and you have chosen Kim Chiu as the star who would be most likely to have a glowing future in showbiz!
Kim, who got a whopping 56,260 out of a total of 112,354 votes (50.07 percent), has been a fixture in the showbiz world for six years. She was catapulted to fame when she was crowned as the Teen Big Winner in the reality TV show Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition in 2006. She has several TV shows under her belt, such as Tayong Dalawa, Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo, and My Binondo Girl. Kim also starred in a number of movies, including Till My Heartaches End, Paano Na Kaya, and The Healing, where she starred alongside Vilma Santos. She also has a number of endorsement deals for notable brands like Cherry Mobile, Rejoice Shampoo, Coke, Olay, and Bench.
According to an article from Spot.ph, Kim is someone we all aspire to be. "She was a nobody. She began with a reality show. She was able to make it! She was able was able to make her dreams come true," Star Magic head Johnny Manahan was quoted as saying about her.

CHITO ROÑO STILL THE MASTER OF HORROR
WE’RE glad Director Chito Roño has found back his mojo in making effective horror flicks. After “Feng Shui,” which was truly scary, his next works like “Sukob,” “T2” and “Bulong” were quite inferior. He’s now back in top form in “The Healing,” which really works as a thriller. After seeing it, we’re no longer surprised the MTRCB gave its uncut version a rating of R-18 (although there’s an expurgated version that’s R-13) as he really upped the ante in the violence factor.
It has a decapitation scene right in the middle of a busy street, a self immolation scene, necks being slashed, a stomach split open with the intestines spilling out, a bloodbath in a massage parlor where several defenseless people were killed and in a Chinese temple were monks were massacred, and most ruthless of all, a little girl being impaled in a flagpole. Those scenes are already shocking and horrifying enough as they are.
In “Feng Shui,” the series of terrifying events was triggered by a cursed bagua. This time, the killings take place after Vilma Santos as Seth, an insurance executive, takes her ailing father (Robert Arevalo) to a faith healer (Daria Ramirez.) Her dad gets healed overnight so her ailing neighbors ask Seth to accompany them to the same faith healer: Ces Quesada who can’t speak, Ynez Veneracion who has a breast tumor, Janice de Belen’s blind daughter, Pokwang and Cris Villanueva who are afflicted with skin disease and Vilma’s stepdaughter, Kim Chiu, who has a kidney problem.
They do get healed, but the healing also doomed them and turn them into violent killers. We won’t go into detail as to why this happened, so as not to spoil it for you, but suffice it to say that Roño and his scriptwriter, Roy Iglesias, try their best to come up with a believable explanation of its root cause that stems from the concept of “huwag mong buhayin ang bangkay.”
Chito manages to sustain the feeling of dread and anticipation throughout the movie. And of course, it works because we feel for Ate Vi as Seth. It’s not her fault that the series of gory incidents happened but she’s the one being hounded by the ghostly spirits in the story since she’s the one who brought all the patients to the faith healer. Running against time, she then tries to reverse the curse by going to its source.
All the graphic killing scenes are staged convincingly for maximum gruesome effect and it’s effective as all the actors deliver. Pokwang is truly quite chilling when she turns into a monstrous entity with superhuman strength throwing people down from a tall building. Even perennial Roño actor Jhong Hilario stands out in a short but menacing role, the nature of which we can’t reveal here. The special effects involving the bulging and rotating left eye of all the killers is a touch of genius.
Ate Vi is subjected to a lot of stressful scenes in the movie as she fights for dear life. We have to suspend our disbelief a bit in the scenes where she gets violently mauled, stabbed, hit by a chair, repeatedly hurled down into the floor, but it did elicit a lot of deafening screams from the theatre crowd.
Some of her fans feel she should have just done another drama but we can understand her desire to flex her wings and do a vehicle of this sort. When we saw the movie, a lot of viewers are young people who enjoy watching scary films like this for a good scream. With this, Ate Vi has successfully reached out to a new demographic, with the help of a young star like Kim Chiu, who in all fairness, also does well in her dual roles. For us, it’s a very wise decision indeed. And Chito Roño shows here to younger horror directors like Topel Lee, Richard Somes and Jerrold Tarog (Tarog did a fine job of scoring and editing the movie) that he remains to be the master of the genre who can even be playful with the orchestrated color scheme of the costumes worn by his characters in the movie.
