CHERIE Gil says the play is a homage to the people who helped shape her image and style. FRAN KATIGBAK

Don’t be you’re nothing but a second rate trying hard copycat” goes the message on a T-shirt, posted on Twitter as Cherie Gil’s profile photo.   The veteran actress’ infamous line from the 1985 movie “Bituing Walang Ningning” seems like a (modified) statement of sorts for her pedigree—a descendant of the Eigenmann acting clan—and a [...]
