Boots Anson-Roa Reminisces How Kind And Loving Bella Flores WasBella Flores is the opposite of her trademark roles in movies and television shows, Boots Anson-Roa has revealed.
In fact, Anson-Roa remembers Flores as a very kind and very loving person.
The description was made by the veteran actress in a recent interview with ABS-CBN News where she also said that Flores is “always the life of the party.”
Flores passed away in the early hours of May 19 in a hospital in Quezon City where she was rushed by her daughter Ruby Arcilla and friend Imelda Papin after her blood pressure crashed.
In reports detailing her passing away, it was revealed that several attempts to revive the iconic villainess in the silver screen were made by doctors but to no avail.
According to Anson-Roa, Flores is very much unlike her roles that made her popular.
“Contrary sa image niya, hindi parating nakataas ang kilay niya and hindi parating nakapamewang. Sa totoong buhay, very kind, very loving and masayahing tao. Totoong tao siya, what you see is what you get,” the actress said.
“Puwede nating sabihin na nag-iisa lang ang Bella Flores dahil wala namang iba na ganoon ang asta bilang kontrabida. Mahirap gayahin ang tinatawag na orig. Siguro wherever Tita Bella is, matutuwa iyan na maraming gumagaya sa kanya,” she added.
Anson-Roa also revealed that Flores has always been strong, even when she was frequenting hospitals because of her failing health.
“Survivor iyan. Kapag may challenge hindi siya agad umaatras. Sugod lang para masugpo ang problema,” Anson-Roa said.
