Gladys, who has been known for her “kontrabida” roles admitted that she often receives questions on how to be an effective villain on screen. On Instagram, she opened up about her willingness to share tips and advice to help improve aspiring actors with their craft.

She wrote, “Maraming nagtatanong sa akin, pa’no daw maging kontrabida na ‘di kailangang maging masama sa totoong buhay para lang magampanan ng makatotohanan.”

According to Gladys, she developed her skills when she began acting at a very young age.

From being a runner-up in Little Miss Philippines in 1984, Reyes kicked off her movie career with Viva Films and that helped hone her craft.

“My first screen test was ‘Baby Tsina’ as Ms. Vilma Santos’ daughter. Had my first acting workshop under the multi-awarded director, the late Direk Marilou-Diaz Abaya,” she said.

“First full-length role was ‘Muling Buksan Ang Puso’ again with Ate Vi, first maldita role, followed by ‘Nakagapos Na Puso’ as young Lorna Tolentino and a lot more movies in Viva where I got my first nomination as Best Child Performer, ’til my first big break in ‘Mara Clara’ and the rest is history,” she continued.

Gladys’ online acting workshops is available to anyone aged 13 to 40.
