Aicelle Santos bags Gigi role in ‘Miss Saigon’ UK
Singer and actress Aicelle Santos bagged the role of ‘Gigi Van Tranh’ in Miss Saigon’s UK Tour. After the success of Himala: Isang Musikal where she plays the lead role, the Kapuso star is now ready to take the international stage with Cameron Mackintosh’s critically-acclaimed musical.
Aicelle first captured the hearts of theater enthusiasts with her role as Aileen in the local production, Rak of Aegis where she bagged the award for Best Actress in a Musical Production in the Aliw Awards 2014. This is followed by more stints in theater, making her a favorite in the local scene.
Last year, Aicelle has once again been recognized by Aliw Awards as Best Actress in a Featured Role for her portrayal of Perla in Maynila Sa Mga Kuko Ng Liwanag. For the same performance, she is currently nominated at the Gawad Philstage Award as Best Female Featured Actress in a Musical.
She will continue being visible on TV as her successful Awit Na Aicelle concert will be televised on GMA, and the music video for the single ”Tuloy Tuloy Lang” under her recent album Liwanag will also be released in the coming months.
With her deep-seated passion for music and the arts, the Kapuso star is excited for this international venture. Aicelle will leave for the UK on the third week of March for the beginning of her training, with high spirits to represent the Filipino talent abroad.
