Whether it’s a tearjerker breakdown scene or an intense confrontation with her nemesis, viewers could always expect Irma Adlawan to deliver divine performances in the small screen. The prime actress is currently seen as the scorned and vengeful mother Yazmin in the Kapamilya series A Soldier’s Heart. In this Kapamilya Toplist, we rounded up the remarkable moments where Irma showcased her acting prowess.
The montage begins with that heartbreaking scene wherein Irma’s character assumed her eldest son Saal (Sid Lucero) was killed in an attack. As a grieving mother, she perfectly depicted the pain of losing a loved one tragically and not getting the chance to say her last goodbye, to the point of looking close to dying out of misery.
The incident fanned Yazmin’s raging desire for vendetta. The fire grew bigger when she discovered that her youngest son Hakeem (Gerald Anderson) is still alive and was adopted by the same man who killed her husband. The magnitude of anger has always been present in Yazmin’s eyes even in the most silent of moments; such is the effect of Irma’s impeccable acting abilities.
The thespian doesn’t starve her audiences with emotions. Add to this list the scene where she rushed Hakeem/Alex to the hospital but was forced to leave for her safety. Irma has undoubtedly given it her all – from sobbing out of worry and fears to completely breaking down in the middle of the road as she vowed to exact vengeance by taking her son back and murdering his foster parents.
Irma put out another outstanding performance during the inevitable face-off with Dante (Rommel Padilla), the soldier who took Hakeem/Alex. Contrary to the previously mentioned breakdown scene, Irma’s character was able to send raging emotions even without much talking or screaming. Her facial and eye expressions were enough to speak volumes. They’re always her biggest acting tools especially when giving life to controlled yet riveting encounters.
The inevitable reunion with Hakeem/Alex finally came. At that moment, Irma toned down the acting style yet still managed to showcase a mix of emotions – motherly love, anger, and pain – just enough to make the revelations thrilling. Lastly, Yazmin displayed a different psyche when she smiled at the sight of her two sons sharing a light moment.
