What makes Andrew E, Dennis and Janno click
Welcome the “ber” months with a laugh, as Andrew E, Janno Gibbs and Dennis Padilla bring back “old-school” comedy in Viva Films’ “Sanggano, Sanggago’t Sanggwapo.”
It happens to be the last movie of Eddie Garcia. Let the “trio loco” set the jolly mood of our long Christmas season, which has officially begun.
Here’s my chat with Andrew:
What makes you, Dennis and Janno click? Camaraderie and friendship through so many years.
Is it harder for you to make people laugh or cry? Making people laugh is really hard and complex. Comedy requires good timing and knowing the sensibilities of your audience. Sense of humor varies.
With my movies, it’s a challenge to entertain the new generation.
What did you learn from Tito Eddie Garcia? His perfect timing and ability to connect with the audience.
In what way does your movie bring back “old-school” comedy? By having jokes for the people of the ’90s and situational comedy.
What makes a jolly person like you sad and angry? Whenever I go to a store and it’s closed, it makes me sad. I seldom get angry.
In this age of dating apps, is your signature song “Humanap Ka ng Panget” applicable to millennials? Yes, and it’s been proven time and time again. It’s effective. My song is always my advice to everyone.
What turns you into a fanboy? People with amazing abilities and qualities of performing.
What’s the best and toughest part of being Andrew E? The toughest part is to connect from generation to generation, and the best part is being appreciated by all kinds of people.
BiGuel on ‘Sahaya’
Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix wrapped up their GMA 7 “epicserye,” “Sahaya.”
The series helped the cute tandem mature as actors, since they immersed themselves in a culture that’s alien to them. After the challenging show, Team BiGuel is all set to evolve.
Here’s my chat with Bianca and Miguel:
What did you learn from portraying Sahaya and Ahmad?
B: No matter how hard, fight.
M: To fight for what and whom you love.
What was the best thing about portraying them?
B: Learning the Badjao culture. It taught me life-changing lessons.
M: Having gotten the feel of what it’s like to be a Badjao. Stepping out of my comfort zone as an actor.
How did the show change you?
B: I learned to have a different perspective. I fell in love with the culture of the Badjaos. It made me realize that the simpler things are the most treasured ones.
It was not just another role for me. It was a milestone. I gave it my all.
M: It made me realize that Badjaos need to be treasured, not only as indigenous people, but also as humans and our fellow Filipinos.
A mother is a mother. But it would have been better for Gerald Anderson if his mom didn’t lambast Bea Alonzo. After all, she’s also a woman. How rude of her to say that she never liked Bea for her son. Talk about adding insult to injury.
What a queer way to come to her son’s defense. The mom’s behavior says a lot about how she raised her son. No wonder Gerald “ghosted” Bea. It all boils down to breeding.
