SKY subscribers meet “Jane the Virgin” star in Exclusive Meet-and-Greet Event
Three lucky SKYcable and Destiny Cable subscribers, were given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and chat with the star of Jane the Virgin, Gina Rodriguez, on November 27, 2014 at the Long Bar, Raffles Makati. An exclusive event hosted by Sony Channel and SKY, the meet-and-greet gave Gina the chance to bond with her overjoyed fans and select media representatives from the Philippines.
Jane the Virgin offers a fresh take on being a Latina in America. Fans and critics alike rave about how Jane breaks Latina stereotypes prevalent in shows currently being aired. Also praised is its very nuanced approach on the theme of being religious in the world today, particularly on how it portrays life’s many facets while not being blatantly preachy.
Based on Juana La Virgen, it takes its telenovela story roots – about a virgin who got pregnant because of an accidental artificial insemination – and gives it a dramatic, romantic, and even comedic flair.
The subscribers in the meet and greet were winners of SKYcable and Destiny Cable’s online contest. Hosted on SKYcable and Destiny Cable’s official Facebook pages, the contest invited subscribers to answer a question related to the show. Slots for the meet-and-greet event were then raffled off among the entries. One of the winners, Melody Carolino, said that members of her “entire family are fans of the show” and that they watch and bond over it every week. For Marivic Recosana, Jane the Virgin is great since she “loves the twists and turns of the story”. Osbert Villasis, on the other hand, was very excited for his “first opportunity to meet and greet a Hollywood actress”.
