Jana charms televiewers anew
GINA SIENES, televiewer: “I was about to request ABS-CBN for a follow-up project for charming new child star Jana Agoncillo—then, I saw the trailer of ‘Ningning.’ I have loved Jana since I first saw her singing ‘Downtown’ with Marita Zobel in a Mcdo TV commercial.”
Nena Dalisay, housewife: “Janine Gutierrez is a stunner, with a pretty face and figure, to boot. But, she needs to do something about her voice, so that it won’t sound ‘tinny’ and get in the way of her performance. To be fair, the girl can act, as proven in the recent drama with her lola Nora Aunor and mom Lotlot de Leon. I must say, though, that singing isn’t for her.”
Nelson Cartagena, engineer: “I’m not against show biz people entering politics—but, I hope fans learn to discern who are capable and who aren’t. Look at their educational status, service track record and civic work before you cast your votes! Beware: some artistas enter politics just to aggrandize themselves and their pockets.”
Marlyn Lopez, OCW: “‘Eat Bulaga’ has a goldmine in its Kalyeserye section, featuring the now popular tandem of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza/Yaya Dub, who connect well with televiewers. Wally Bayola as Lola Nidora is spot-on in his characterization, and his one-liners are crowd-pleasers. They’re stress-relievers!
Dan Rezada, office employee: “A former sexy actor who’s doing well in TV dramas is Christian Vasquez. Gone is his distracting Ilonggo accent, and he has developed depth and range. He deserves meatier film roles!”
