Mercedes Cabral: Who is She?

Mercedes Cabral, the new face of Philippine showbiz who won the online voting “The Most Beautiful Actress” who walked the red carpet of the recently concluded 61st Cannes Film Festival. She has the typical Filipina [exotic] beauty that captured every foreign eyes.

Korean director Park Chan-wook, responsible for the ever famous and riveting The Vengeance Trilogy (2002 Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, 2003 Oldboy, and 2005 Sympathy for Lady Vengeance ), casted Mercedes Cabral on his new film Thirst. Mercedes will “play as a Filipina of wife of  a Korean national who is passionate about their love affair” (Starmometer).

Mercedes Cabral was introduced in the film “Serbis” (At Your Service) in 2008. The film was nominated for Golden Palm Award in the 61st Cannes Film Festival (the reason why she was on that red carpet). Although the movie was internationally recognized, it was not received well by the Filipino audience.

I haven’t seen the movie myself but peeking at the trailer below makes me want to watch it.

I have seen two of Park Chan-wook’s trilogy (Old Boy and Lady Vengeance) and they were rather intriguing and yet interesting and was masterfully done. The Serbis trailer kind of remind me of Park’s films, hence, I  will not mind watching it [Serbis].

For Mercedes Cabral, congratulations on your debut in both Philippine and Korean films. Hopefully everything will go well. I have yet to see your talent, I am pretty sure I will not be disappointed.
