Bashers pit Angel against Robin, KC

IT’S a case of damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Angel Locsin went to Marawi as a volunteer to help the beleaguered refugees from the war being waged against the Maute terrorists there.

Some folks reprimanded her for all the photos coming out in the papers showing her doing civic work amidst the refugees.

Some know-it-alls even questioned her intentions and told her she should just have kept it secret if she’s really sincere and did not broadcast it anymore in public. 

But these same bashers are now criticizing the likes of Robin Padilla and KC Concepcion for not having done anything for the refugees.

Robin is a Muslim convert who has helped other needy Muslims before, while KC is a United Nations ambassador who was shown doing charity work several times in the past.

They’re now being pitted against Angel, like it’s a contest, saying “Naunahan pa sila ni Angel tumulong sa mga taga-Marawi.”

So, ano ba talaga gusto nyo, mga ate at kuya? When celebrities like Angel are shown helping out, you bash her.

And those who don’t do anything, you chide them.

Ang gagaling nyo. Bakit kaya hindi kayo na lang ang mga tumulong sa ngangangailangan nating mga kababayan sa Marawi?

Internationally acclaimed theater star Joanna Ampil is presented by ABS-CBN in a solo presscon as advanced promo for the film version of the stage musical, “Larawan,” which was written by Ryan Cayabyab, with libretto by National Artist Rolando Tinio and music by the ABS-CBN Philharmonic.

Soon after the presscon, Joanna left for the world tour of “Cats,” where she plays Grizabella singing “Memory,” for which she recorded a single now released here in Manila. 

At 17, Joanna did the role of Kim in “Miss Saigon” at West End for two years, from 1993 to 1995.

She was a high school student with no previous acting experience at all. What was her experience as a teenager living along in London?

“It’s very hard. It’s the first time I’m away from my family and my biggest enemy is loneliness. I made mistakes, wrong decisions about relationships, some with foreigners.

I got married to a Filipino graphic artist but after three and a half years, we got divorced. We have no kids. No regrets. What happened is part of what I am now.”

One unforgettable experience is performing for Queen Elizabeth and the Royal Family of England. “It was intimidating as they were seated on the front row. I was very nervous kasi I’ll be the first one to sing. I did ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ from ‘Les Miz.’ But after the show, she talked with us. I learned to curtsey.

And she’s very gracious.” 

Directed by Loy Arcenas, “Ang Larawan” is the musical adaptation in Filipino of National Artist Nick Joaquin’s acclaimed play, “Portrait of the Artist as a Filipino.”

Joanna plays Paula Marasigan while Rachel Alejandro is her sister Candida. So how is it being directed by

Arcenas, who has previously done two indie films, “Niño” with Fides Asencio and “Requieme” with Gina Alajar?

“Loy is a seriously meticulous and pedantic director,” says Joanna. “He has a keen eye for detail and I like that as I am pedantic myself.

He’s also a very intelligent person who doesn’t want to go for cliches.

We rehearsed our scenes for one year before starting actual shooting. It was very hard because the lyrics of the songs are in old Tagalog. It was a difficult challenge and I wanted to quit twice but Girlie Rodis, our producer, didn’t let me go and now, I am happy to be part of the finished film. It’s just amazing and fantastic.”

How is it working with Rachel Alejandro? 

“It felt good working with Rachel. She was very supportive of me when I wanted to quit because I was taking home my role. She encouraged me, saying kaya mo ‘yan. We really bonded well.”

Ryza Cenon, female winner of “Starstruck” Batch 2 in 2004, just signed a management contract with Viva after being with GMA Network for ten years.

It’s said this is because of the influence of her current boyfriend, Pocholo Barretto, who’s with Viva. But we can’t really blame her and Louise de los Reyes, who also left GMA for Viva just a couple of weeks ago.

They say they want to do movies and GMA’s film arm is currently inactive in doing full length flicks.

This is the reason big stars like Dingdong Dantes and Jennylyn Mercado do movies with other companies like Star Cinema and Quantum Films.

With regard to Ryza’s decision to leave GMA Artist Center, Gigi Santiago Lara, senior assistant vice president for alternative productions released an official statement: “Ryza Cenon is no longer being managed by GMA Artist Center.

Though her management contract has expired early this year, she is still part of GMA’s very successful afternoon prime series ‘Ika-6 na Utos,’ which has been extended several times already.

We wish Ryza well in her future endeavors.”

If Viva would succeed in making Ryza a big movie star likes she hopes to happen, then we wouldn’t be surprised if other GMA homegrown stars would wish to follow in her footsteps.
