MANILA, Philippines -- Actress-comedienne Pokwang said she's learning a lot from Batangas Governor Vilma Santos.

Santos and Pokwang are working on Star Cinema's upcoming film "The Healing," which also stars Kim Chiu.

"Nakaka-amaze siyang ka-trabaho. Madami kang matututunan hindi lang bilang artista kung hindi bilang tao," Pokwang said.

"Natutunan ko sa kanya 'yung talagang magandang pinaghihirapan mo ang lahat ng bagay. At kita naman sa na-achieve niya. Alam mo napakagaan niyang ka-trabaho, ang sarap sarap. Tapos ang hilig pang magpakain. Makuwento din siya,' yung mga masasayang nangyari sa buhay," she added.

Asked if she feels intimidated working with Santos, Pokwang replied: "Noong una. Pero ipaparamdam niyang kumportable siya kapag ka-eksena mo siya."

Aside from "The Healing," Pokwang will also do a film for Regal Films with Gabby Concepcion and Ruffa Gutierrez.

She's also set to be part of a new television series.

Pokwang, Chiu and other Star Magic artists are also set to do a concert on March 30 at Waikiki Shell in Honolulu, Hawaii.
