A few days ago, the taping of a drama series was packed up and it was not because of the bad weather. Rather, the cause of the non-shooting was the refusal of the lead actress (LA) to enter the location of their shoot. LA was already in the vicinity of the taping as the production people already saw her van. The makeup people did not worry about LA because at times, she refused to have herself fixed. She can prepare herself for what her role demands. Yet, some people can be mean by saying that LA refuses to wear makeup because her face cannot hold it.
The crew had already prepared the location, which was somewhere south of the Manila and where the weather was cooler. They waited for LA to step down from the van. Their wait was futile. LA refused to budge. She did not want to get out of her van. Instead of convincing LA harder, the production team conceded to her demand and packed up the taping.
While LA is known for her obnoxious ways, she actually has a caring personality for the some sectors of the community. However, when the taping was packed up because of her whimsical reasoning, LA forgot that her being a prima donna at that moment affected not just her schedule but also the commitments of her co-stars. LA also forgot that some crew members are paid on a daily basis, and that the location owner gets some remuneration.
The question is what made LA uncomfortable with the chosen location. Did it bring about significant memories that she did not want to remember?
