Beloved Actress Cherie Gil Succumbs to Cancer

Premier actress Cherie Gil (Evangeline Rose Gil Eigenmann) died of cancer on August 5, 2022 in New York. According to sources, the actress was seeking treatment at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for her uterine cancer. She was 59.

Gil is the daughter of showbiz icons, Eddie Mesa and Rosemarie Gil, and the sister of Michael de Mesa and the late Mark Gil, who died in 2014 from liver cancer. She started her showbiz career at a young age and eventually landed significant roles in movies such as ‘Problem Child,’ ‘City After Dark,’ which were produced by Regal Films. 

However, her role as the villainess Lavinia Arguelles in ‘Bituing Walang Ningning’ of Viva Films made her an icon. Today’s young talents have expressed dreams of being splashed with water from Gil in a recreation of the scene and dialogue of ‘You’re nothing but a second rate, copycat.’ Her last projects were playing Hannah Pitt and other roles in ‘Angels in America’ Part 1 on stage and Zaina Macadato in GMA’s ‘Legal Wives’ on free tv before leaving the Philippines in 2021. Gil’s sudden departure shocked her fans, but her decision was respected.

Gil has a son, Jay, with actor Leo Martinez and two children, Bianca and Raphael, with violinist Rony Rogoff.

Let God be God, no one is ever to young nor too old to leave this mortal world, when God calls us home let us trust His Divine Will.

    1. Easy to say.. but when you're in that position of grief, nothing really makes sense.. nothing

    2. You haven't experienced yet how painful it is, so it is easy for you to say that. Once you experience it, you will know.

      Delete
    3. True. Yes its normal, its human to grieve but not for too long, we should learn to move on and live our lives to fulfill our purpose here on earth, if we grieve for too long how can we fulfill them? If nothing makes sense anymore how can we fulfill our mission here on earth? With clouded minds, a broken heart? If one day when its our time to leave, our Creator will ask "what did you do with your "talents""? Did we just squander it and wasted our time wth nothingness because we cannot get over(accept) the lost of a loved one or better yet because we didnt trust and accept His Divine Will? Do you really think we can enter Heaven this way? All our loved ones have done their fair share and served their purpose/mission, ask yourself if you've earned a place there too..i lost both parents, it was not easy but I prayed hard to God to always trust His Will."...for not a single sparrow falls to the ground without the Father's consent."-matthew 10:29
