Waiting for Lolita and MarleneBy Andy Bais
Philippine Daily Inquirer
JACKIE De Los Reyes, 58, caterer: “I am a huge fan of old movies and, as far as I’m concerned, no one comes close to real dramatic acting than my idols, Lolita Rodriguez and Marlene Dauden.
“For many years now, I’ve been trying to get copies of their old movies, but to no avail. I hope they will soon be available on DVD. I don’t know if they’re still willing to act, but I wish that they’d be given another chance, so they can share their unique skills with the new generation!”
Cathy Lardizabal, televiewer: “Agot Isidro has gone a long way—from being a backup singer to going solo. But, I never thought she could act well, until I watched her in a recent episode of ‘One True Love,’ where she had an intense confrontation scene with Raymond Bagatsing!”
Rosie Daguman, housewife: “Where are the lovely and talented likes of Pilar Pilapil and Rio Locsin? I want to see them in teleseryes. One reason I’m no longer interested in watching soaps is because I see the same actors and actresses doing minor variations on similar roles over and over again.”
Luis Ramos, student: “Initially, I wondered why Zendee Rose Tenerefe, dubbed YouTube’s Random Girl, became an Internet sensation. After watching her videos, where she sang before mall shoppers, I found out why: She has a strong and solid voice.
“Luck is on Zendee’s side. She recently appeared in a musical variety show on TV and was reportedly invited by Ellen Degeneres to appear in her show. Here’s hoping that she and her handlers play their cards right.”
