In a recent media conference held at Fin & Claw restaurant in Quezon City, Geraldine shared her excitement about venturing into local showbiz.

Born to a Northern Irish-British father, Frank Jennings, and a Filipina mother, Gina Cariaga, Geraldine’s multicultural upbringing is reflected not only in her heritage but also in her artistic endeavors.

“At a young age, I loved singing. My mom enrolled me in singing and guitar classes. I just loved it. I studied it in Los Angeles. And I grew to love the craft,” Geraldine shared. Her passion for filmmaking is palpable, and she expressed gratitude for the opportunity to be part of the ongoing production of “Isla Babuyan.”

The movie, directed by Abdel Langit, tells the compelling story of Anastassia (Geraldine), a young woman of mixed heritage who journeys to the Philippines to be with her Filipino mother, Rose, portrayed by the seasoned actress Lotlot De Leon. As Anastassia navigates love and societal challenges, the plot unfolds. Other stars in the cast are Jameson Blake, Dave Bornea, and Samantha Daza.

Geraldine’s dedication to her craft is evident as she eagerly embraces the challenges of acting. “It was an amazing experience. It’s still ongoing. We haven’t finished yet. It was challenging initially because it was different from studying it. But everyone was so helpful, so friendly. It was normal, and I felt great. I love it,” she expressed.
