Volleyball star Alyssa Valdez might just be a young girl when her favorite actor Rico Yan died — but she did mourn over his death.
In an interview with PEP, 24-year-old Valdez was asked what movie she would want to have a remake. She answered, “I think it’s really Got 2 Believe.”
She then recalled how, as young as she was then, she mourned over the death of her idol Yan.
“I’m a fan of Rico Yan talaga. And, trivia, umiyak talaga ako noong nalaman ko pong namatay siya. No kidding. Holy Week ‘yon. Bawal kaming mag-open ng TV sa house pero in-open ko, tapos umiiyak lang ako,” she shared.
[I’m really a fan of Rico Yan. And, trivia, I really did cry when I found out that he died. No kidding. That’s Holy Week. We’re not allowed to open the TV in the house but I did open it, then I just cried.]
