In the era of special effects, the harness is used to create the illusion of flight of the characters in the movie or the teleseryes. Most actresses and actors as well as singers trusted the use of the harness to achieve the great effects of their program. For example, lead actresses such as Angel Locsin and Marian Rivera used the harness to achieve the flying effect of their Darna character with no qualms. Then, even a non-action star like Richard Gutierrez used the harness when he did his death-defying stunts in his teleseryes. In other words, when the harness is used, professionals are around to ensure the safety of the user. Hence, why was this reactive and stubborn lady actress (SL) so against with her using the harness in her short role in a soon to be released epic project?
It’s not just using the harness that seems to be bugging SL these days. She even allegedly cancelled her photo shoot for an endorsement because she felt she was too fat. Uh oh. Is SL worried that her “bulges” might be mistaken as a some sort of “bump?”
While SL has started her social network allegations with her mother studio, another industry insider (II), who just happened to be the head writer, has issued her side of the story. II has been in the business for more than a decade and has been trusted by the major networks to come up with the scenes and dialogues to make the actors look good.
In reply to SL, II has revealed her frustration over the ways SL approached her issue. II believes that such complaints against the network should have been coursed through the proper and professional channels within the conference rooms and not in a public forum for the world to know. Hence, what SL overlooked was the damaging effect of her allegations to the network that discovered her.
According to II, SL did arrive at the appointed time. Then, it took two hours to put on her makeup, fix her tattoos, and costumes. Thus, by the time she was ready, it was the dinner break for the crew. Naturally, the crew had to eat or else the production would be so awful. We all know how grumpy and inefficient hungry people could be. To make matters worse, SL refused to use the harness! Thus, II had to think of ways to simplify the crucial scene just to accommodate SL’s demand. A scene cannot be changed in minutes, by the way.
What puzzled the production was that the script was sent to SL even before the shoot, and the assumption was that she should have already read and be familiar with the demands of her role. Hence, she should have requested for changes prior to her taping day. The flight scenes were essential because SL had a non-human role that required special effects in the fight scene. Hence, without the illusion of flight, the scene would be ordinary.
Contrary to the claim of SL that it was already 4:00 am when they shot her scene, and she left by 5:00 am, II replied that the production team was already calling again at 2:30am because SL already “walked out.” Thus, SL had allegedly left even before 2:30am!
Now this issue with SL has gone beyond the harness. It has grown into SL’s word versus the production’s testimony, and SL against her network. Between a start up talent who has shown her true colors this early and the seasoned production team of a network, who would be more believable? With SL, why did she refuse to use the harness, anyway? Was the stunt too dangerous? Too dangerous for whom? Perhaps the answer can enable people to understand her ways.
