The actress is well known for her memorable performances in the films “Bituing Walang Ningning” and “Oro, Plata, Mata.”
Philippines’ MANILA Celebrity Cherie Gil passed away on Friday, August 5. She was 59.


Her nephew, actor Sid Lucero, confirmed her passing according to information obtained by StechiteGist Media.

Cherie had been undergoing care at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, according to her most recent Facebook posts.

Cherie got her start in entertainment early thanks to her family’s connections to the entertainment industry, which also included her parents Eddie Mesa and Rosemarie Gil, brothers Mark Gil (+) and Michael de Mesa. She received supporting roles in a number of movies before landing the lead role in Problem Child at the age of 15, where she co-starred with her mother.

Cherie went on to star in movies including Manila by Night (1980), Oro, Plata, Mata (1982), and Bituing Walang Ninging (1985), as Lavinia Arguelles, in which she delivered the now-famous line, “You’re nothing but a second-rate, trying-hard copycat!”


Cherie returned to the entertainment industry in the 1994 film Sugatang Puso after having an 11-year hiatus to devote herself to her family, earning her the Best Supporting Actress prize at the Metro Manila Film Festival.

She made a brief appearance in Citizen Jake in 2018, earning her first Gawad Urian Award.

She kept acting in films and plays far into her fifties, playing various roles in Atlantis Productions’ Angels in America and the one-woman show Full Gallop, which she also produced.
