Angel on working with Vilma

  • Page Views 5314
  • Working for the first time with
    veteran actress Vilma Santos and
    noted director Joyce Bernal in
    Everything About Her has given
    Angel Locsin new insight into
    being an actress.
    “She’s such a joy to work
    with,” Angel said of Vilma.
    “Everyone na makasama namin
    sinasabi na ang saya daw ng set
    kapag kasama si Gob.”
    She also described Vilma
    as kind, gracious and very
    professional.
    “’Pag nakikita mo na siya
    nang harap-harapan, sobrang
    humbling. Ito, Vilma Santos,
    ang laki-laking pangalan, living
    legend, pero kung umarte siya sa
    harap namin… siya pa ’yung naga-apologize,                                                                                                                           lagi siyang maaga sa
    set, lagi siyang ready. Kahit sinong
    kausap niya pantay-pantay. Never
    siyang nagpakita ng mood niya.
    Bilang isang baguhang artista ay
    nakaka-inspire siya,” Angel said.
    She lauded Vilma for being
    genuine and open to everyone.
    “Totoong-totoo at napaka-sincere
    niyang tao.”
    Angel noted how Vilma is
    concerned about the welfare of
    the cast and crew, even making
    sure everyone has had lunch or
    dinner. “Kapag nandiyan si tita ay busog lahat.                                                                                                                           Bawal po magutom.
    Asikasong-asikaso niya po lahat.
    Hindi niya po hahayaang may
    isang madehado,” she related.
    She further revealed that Vilma isn’t averse to a little on-set
    banter. “Si tita bangka po ’yan ng
    kuwento. Kapag nagkukuwento
    po ’yan, may tayo po ’yan at
    kailangan may action pa.”
    She described the governor as an avid newspaper reader “kaya
    alam niya ang lahat ng nakasulat
    diyan, walang nakakaligtas sa
    kanya,” and a supporter of local
    releases. “May bitbit din siyang
    TV every day – de kahon pa.
    Pinapanood niya Pilipino palagi,”
    Angel pointed out.
    She downplayed the idea of
    her being already chummy with
    the award-winning actress and
    politician, who is also the mother
    of her boyfriend Luis Manzano.
    “Hindi ko naman masabing
    close pero ang suwerte ko kasi
    ang bait ni tita sa akin on cam
    and off-cam,” she said.
    In Everything About Her,
    Angel plays a nurse tasked to take
    care of Vilma’s character.
    She admitted initially having
    doubts if she would be able to
    pull it off, epecially since she has
    to act with someone like Vilma,
    whom she looks up to.
    Thankfully, Angel found an
    invaluable mentor in Direk Joyce,
    who minces no words with what is
    expected of her.
    “Buti na lang po nagkaroon
    ako ng director na nakatutok
    talaga at hindi siya nahihiya talaga
    na pagsabihan ako. (Sasabihin
    niya) ‘Gel, ’wag ’yan, ayoko ’yan.
    Ayoko ng magandang iyak. Gusto
    ko mas jologs pa, gusto ko mas
    natural, ’wag mo akong artehan,
    ’wag mo akong bigyan ng actingacting (dahil) hindi ito drama.
    Nagpapasalamat talaga ako kay
    direk Joyce. Kung anuman ang
    ipapakita ko sa pelikulang ito
    hindi ko magagawa kung walang
    gabay (niya).”•
