Hollywood actress and “The Bourne Legacy” star Rachel Weisz will likely leave a lasting impression on some Manila kids now that she has their playground refurbished.
Pat Crowley, “The Bourne Legacy” director, shared how the Hollywood star decided to give children of San Andres, Manila a play haven by improving on what they had.
“Everyday she came out and she saw the playground and she saw the kids in the playground. I think that had a lot to do with motivating her…that she always makes a contribution on every movie that she works on,” Crowley said on “TV Patrol,” March 5.
“Pinaayos at pinapinturahan niya [Weisz] ang ilang palaruan tulad ng slides at nagdagdag ng merry-go-round at seesaw,” Ginger Conejero reported.
“Her much important consideration is the safety of the kids,” Crowly quipped, adding, “You know, because kids are playing here. There are sharp edges and she said we can do better for the kids.”
“Namigay rin ang ‘Bourne’ production at local actors tulad nina Lou Veloso at John Arcilla ng school supplies at bags sa halos anim na raang kabataan. Kaakibat nito ang paalalala sa mga bata na magsikap para makaahon sa hirap,” Conejero added.
Aside from the playground, another gift for Pinoys will be the forthcoming special screening of “The Bourne Legacy.”
“I don’t know that there will be a world premiere here but there certainly will be some kind of a screening here, a special screening here,” Crowley shared.
Before he returns to the US, the director plans to visit Bohol to go whale watching.
