VETERAN actress Susan Roces, who passed away Friday, is recognized for her contributions in the Philippine film industry in a resolution filed in the Senate expressing condolences. 

“The passing away of a legendary movie star whose invaluable contribution to Philippine cinema is beyond compare and whose sincerity, warmth, guidance, and kindness had truly touched the hearts of her fellow workers in the film industry sector, particularly the young actors and actresses who have just begun their movie careers, will be mourned by the Filipino people and the nation,” Senate President Vicente C. Sotto III said in the still unnumbered resolution.  

Ms. Roces, or Jesusa Purificacion Levy Sonora-Poe in real life, died at the age of 80. 

“She passed away peacefully on a Friday evening, May 20, 2022, surrounded by love and warmth,” her daughter Senator Grace Poe-Llamanzares said in a tweet.   

After making her screen debut in 1952 at 11 years old, she starred in more than 130 movies throughout a long career in both film and television.  

She was regarded as the “Queen of Philippine Movies” and won several awards.  

The wake is set from May 22 to 24 at the Heritage Park in Taguig City. — Alyssa Nicole O. Tan
