Irma Adlawan is a respected and seasoned theater, television, and film actor with numerous acting accolades to her name including Urian and Star Awards Best Actress nominations for her role in the film Tuhog, and an Urian Best Supporting Actress nomination for the movie Mga Munting Tinig. Other citations include Best Supporting Actress nominations for The Homecoming (Metro Manila Film Festival) and Naglalayag (Manila Film Festival). This stage veteran of twenty-two years -- an Aliw Awardee for stage to boot –- has also been teaching acting for three years now at the Cultural Center of the Philippines for the Tanghalang Pilipino Actors.

Used to playing support roles and ordinary-looking women, Irma was excited to play Marta, one of the lead roles in Mga Pusang Gala. She shares that what she likes about the movie is that "It gives people a sense of hope…It is a story of survival."


Ricky Davao is a multi-awarded stage, film, and television actor. He is a three-time Aliw Awards Best Actor winner in the field of theater, and has received acting laurels from the Film Academy of the Philippines, Urian and Star Awards for his performances in Saranggola, Minsan May Isang Puso, Ipaglaban Mo The Movie, and Abot Hanggang Sukdulan.

The actor, who also directs for TV, plays another gay role in Mga Pusang Gala as Boyet, a romance pulp fiction novelist approaching midlife crisis. Says Ricky, who also played gay characters in the films Ang Lalaki sa Buhay ni Selya and American Adobo, “I was playing gay roles, both in theater and television, when other actors stayed away from them. Now, every other actor I know is dying to play one.”

  For a sixteen-year old actor, Alchris Galura already owns an impressive filmography. He was only eight when he did his first movie, and he soon appeared in critically-acclaimed movies like Mga Munting Tinig, Santa Santita, and Babae sa Breakwater. The latter earned him Best Child Actor and Best Supporting Actor nominations from FAMAS (Filipino Academy for Movie Arts and Sciences) and the Filipino critics' Gawad Urian, respectively. Recently, he acted in the soon-to-be-released independent film Sarung Banggi.
     
This ramp, print and TV model always loved to act even during his college days, and feels blessed as his career seems to be moving in the right direction. 1996 Mr. Body Shot winner Reggie Curly considers Mga Pusang Gala, his fifth film outing, as his most physically-demanding. His previous movie appearances include Ako Na Lang Sana and Liberated. He also received good reviews in Gil Portes’ Beautiful Life and Joel Lamangan’s I Will Survive.
 
Although a newbie in the acting profession –- Mga Pusang Gala is his first full-length film –- Lauren Novero is not a total greenhorn when it comes to show business. This 2001 Mr. Body Shot winner has already appeared in various print ads and television commercials, making good use of his unique dark looks in an industry that usually prefers fair-skinned mestizos.

But aside from his good looks, Lauren also possesses a beautiful singing voice, and prefers to belt out pop jazz music. He recently came up with a single and intends to pursue a recording career simultaneously with film acting.
