The young Jacklyn Jose was tapped by Director Lino Brocka for the role of Lynette, one of the three barrio lass recruited for jobs in the city. But instead of landing a good job, the three were forced into prostitution. The movie, White Slavery (1985), earned Jose an Urian Best Actress nomination. In 1986, Jose turned in another incredible performance as a young lass working as a “torera” in live shows. The movie, Private Show earned her another URIAN nomination, but it was in the movie Takaw Tukso, also released that year, that won for her the URIAN Best Actress Award. Takaw Tukso also went on to win five other awards including Best Picture and Director.
A good start for the young actress who started her movie career with a big break in 1984 in the movie Chikas. As everyone knows she matured into a fine and respected dramatic actress.
