I had the pleasure being directed by filmmaker William C. Wilson, bonding with my "sons" Jaime Barcelon and Jay Costelo, working with Junot Lee, Sarnica May, Che Landon, Kathleen Neubauer, Niloo Khodadedh as well as Virgil Apostol and Abe Pagtama on Lolo Pepe.
This was my first time working closely with a Filipino American cast with an original Filipino story to tell.
I enjoyed the process, the collaboration and the bonding of it all! Great people to work with!
Wilson adds, "Edwin forced you to love his creepy, coke snorting, hooker loving, family oriented self. Bringing to life a character that some actors would only see as slimy but instead you could feel 'Tito Rey's' heart on screen. I am so grateful for his time, talent and energy and everything he brought to 'Tito Rey' to bring him to life."
Lolo Pepe is currently in post-production.
