Actress Sue Prado is the true “queen” of Cinemalaya 2011.

She played various roles in four films at the recently concluded annual independent film fest: a school teacher in war-torn Sulu in Joel Lamangan’s “Patikul”; a drug mule in Joseph Israel Laban’s “Cuchera”; a nurse in an understaffed maternity hospital in Eduardo Roy Jr.’s “Bahay Bata”; and an overseas Filipino worker in Zurich Chan’s “Teoriya.”

In a recent chat with Inquirer Entertainment, Sue explained how she approaches her work.

“Actors go through different processes before committing to do a role,” she said. “I make sure to learn as much as I can about my character before filming starts.” It’s also important to observe one’s surroundings, Sue said. “You absorb what you see and store it in your brain. When a situation calls for it, you use it.”

Sue said she has yet to play her dream role. “I’m preparing for it by observing a lot of people. ‘Pag dumating na yung role, marami akong baon.”
