Ice Seguerra goes behind the scenes as ‘Drag Race PH: Untucked’ director
Ice Seguerra gave fans a peek behind the scenes of “Drag Race Philippines” as his wife Liza Diño revealed he is the director of the show’s “Untucked” companion series.
Aside from “Drag Race Philippines: Untucked,” Seguerra will also be directing scenes in the show’s werkroom, where contestants prepare or perform for certain challenges, as seen on Diño’s Facebook page yesterday, Aug. 18.
Diño showed Seguerra at the “Drag Race Philippines” werkroom operating a camera and posing with the crew of the show.
“Cat’s out of the bag. My husband, Ice Diño-Seguerra, is the director of ‘Drag Race Philippines: Untucked’ series and all the werkroom scenes of ‘Drag Race Philippines (main show),'” she said.
This marks Seguerra’s debut as a series director, and Diño could not help but be proud of him.
“Directorial debut mo pa lang eh global na, tapos reality series pa. To top it all off, paborito pa nating show.” she gushed, recalling that she and Seguerra were ecstatic after finding out he would co-direct the series.
(It is just your directorial debut, but it is already global, and a reality series at that. To top it all off, [it is for] our favorite show.)
“Thank you, love, for capturing the hearts of these queens. I love you, and I’m so proud of you my love. Slaaaay!” Diño added.
