Being in the showbiz industry for decades, Aga Muhlach and Alice Dixson both remain grateful to still be receive different acting projects even at the age of 50. And one such project is their reunion movie, Nuuk, a thriller shot in Greenland.
Alice, who stayed in Canada for quite some time, admitted that she wasn't sure enough if she still has a career waiting for her when she decided to go back to the Philippines in 2011. And luckily, she did.
Aga, on the other hand, though choosy in his projects, is still as active in the showbiz scene. He said he was grateful to star in hit local films such as Seven Sundays and First Love with actress Bea Alonzo for the past year.
And now he’s busy promoting his film Nuuk and he’s also working on the Filipino adaptation of the Korean drama film, Miracle in Cell No. 7, which is an official entry to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
During the recent press conference of Nuuk, the two shared their life’s reflections after reaching the age of 50.
Alice believes that she only has a body that ages, “I feel the same when I was 16, 20, 30... it’s just that your body ages, ’yon lang nag-age. I guess your mentality, the way you think changes but who you are as a person, it will always be the same.”
Meanwhile, Aga claimed that he already has everything and he already experienced enough in this lifetime.
“Ako naman, I’m at my most happiest right now.” Aga said. “I’m at my most comfortable, happiest...content. There is so much content in my life and it starts with my family, my wife, my kids, the entertainment industry is still there, my passion is still there. Tapos parang napagdaanan ko na lahat na mayroon ng ganong feeling na I can sit back, watch and observe people.”
And as a veteran actor himself, he added, “And help actors, up and coming...the big ones now. Pag nakita mong may problema or nagkaka issue sa buhay minsan nilalapitan ko sila, I’ll tap their shoulder kasi minsan ganoon lang ’yong kailangan ng taong may pinagdadaanan, ‘okay lang yan, kaya mo yan. Dadaanan mo lang lahat yan.’”

Nuuk—which was screened at the 5th Danish Film Festival last October 9, 12 and 13—it will grace local cinemas on November 6.
