Must Get Her to Speak Rightly

Image courtesy of www.wikihow.com

Provocative Actress (PA) is proof that one cannot have everything. PA has the looks, dance moves, and appeal, as well as trust coming from the network. Although PA could have signed up with any other big management team, PA opted to sign up with her Current Home (CH), and has remained loyal for many years. Despite issues that hounded her career and personal life, which many thought were leading to the end of her career, CH would give her projects that would test her capabilities as an actress.

In one of her projects, PA had to undergo a transformation that seems to be taking a toll behind the scenes. PA has been having a hard time in delivering her lines in a manner required by her character. According to the character profile, PA should be exuding more sophistication and a certain air in her scenes. Lucky for the production team, PA could act out the sophisticated and proud parts of her roles. In fact, she has improved much as an actress and can match skills with her co-stars, except for one area.

As PA is portraying a changed woman, she is required to deliver certain lines in the Queen’s language minus the accent, of course. Thus, PA had to deliver some lines in English, as her character required. However, the behind the scenes situation has proven difficult for PA, her co-workers, and the production team. PA apparently has a hard time pronouncing certain words, and thus, the scenes were taking longer to shoot. When she had to do a scene with Award-Winning actress (AW), several takes had to be done, which make AW impatient. The writers even had to cut short a few lines to make sure PA could deliver well. A speech coach was finally hired to assist PA, as lessening her lines in English would greatly affect her character.

One day, AW and Co-Star (CS) were talking about their children. AW said she was proud that her kids stayed in school, while CS said that before she would allow any of her kids to get into the entertainment industry, they need to finish school first. Unwittingly, PA overheard this conversation, and she could not say anything to the two older women. All she could do was to pretend she did not hear anything, as she realized where AW and CS were coming from. However, PA could not say that she had to skip school in favor of a showbiz career because she and her family do not have a means of living. Given that she has filial connections, the way to help her family was for her to venture into the business, and thus, sacrifice the opportunity to acquire good education.

‘I believe that we can, in a deliberate way, articulate the kind of people we want to become. We can articulate the culture that we would want to exist in our family, and you can then, as the rest of life happens to you, you can utilize those things to help you become the kind of person you want to be.’ – Clayton Christensen

    2. M. Asiwa kasi pakinggan. Impossible naman na hindi sila marunong magsalita and pronounce, no? They should hire private tutor. There's nothing wrong with learning basic english, diction and pronunciation.

      Sa KaF, sila ni M-E-K-K ang some of the stars na hindi maganda ang pagsalita ng english words.

    3. Haha nag marathon ako ng episodes un ung unang napansin ko, awkward g pagbitaw nya pag english na. Btw, AW is and CS is S.

  2. This is M of KaF. Filial was the clue that made choosing which M the BI was pertaining to.

  3. Si M? Siguro dahil na din sa tone ng boses niya. basta parang may something kahit tagalog

    1. Akala ko ako lang ang nakapansin. There is something off. Kahit Tagalog, parang sanggano lagi ang tono at never ko siyang narining na magsalita na medyo polished ang dating.

  4. PA - M
    CH - KaF
    AW - A
    Cs - S

    I feel bad for PA. Hindi rin naman lahat ng nakatapos ng college magaling sa pronunciation and diction. Parang si M sa KaH. Hindi pa naman too late. Pwede pa rin nya maaral yan with a coach.

    1. I don't get it why Filipinos are so obsessed with speaking excellent/no-accent English. It's really difficult to live in such a social-climbing society.

    2. Practice lang ng practice kahit hindi ka fluent magenglish. Alam ko yon iba dito babanatan ka kaagad na "trying hard", pero kailangan mo gawin yon para sa self improvement.

      They're actors. Parte ng trabaho nila yan. They have to make their characters believable. Puwede namang aralin yan with a coach kung gugustuhin.

    4. 1:00am, ok ka lang? Natural lang na marunong sa english. Anywhere you go, english dapat for convenience sa lahat. Para ano pa pinag-aral ka ng parents mo if you don't practice and learn english mismo.

    5. Yung kay M of KaH, true. Pangit talaga magsalita ..

    6. M- forever starlet. Can never portray a rich character due to her intonation and diction. Why can't their station have some of their talents who are not good in english get tutored . It will benefit both of them in the end.

    7. You must get it 1:00, kaka.proud kaya. I went to an Asian country many of them cannot speak English. Ang hirap both for tourists and for them. Di maka.tsika. Yung awkward sa atin feeling expert na.sila. Tayo kht 3yrs old nakaka.speak! Go Pinoy

    8. 2:31 wag idamay ang wala sa issue.

    9. I feel bad for her too but then again the scene calls for it. Even hollywood actors need to practice different accents. Problema na ni M yun dapat nagpractice sya beforehand.

    10. si AW rin naman hindi fluent ah.

      Delete
    11. Kayanga. Grabe naman yung dalawang actress na yun. Silang dalawa ang nakakahiya. Hindi si M. Pati din naman sila 'di ata tapos ah.

      Delete
  5. Both AW and CS are not good English speakers themselves especially AW! Most of the time, wrong grammar. Anyway, the character of PA should always speak English, but the Network/Production Team know that her lacking in speaking the language perfectly does not make her less of an ACTRESS, thus, she was given the project.

  11. PA is M; AW is A; CS is either S or the other co star; I really cringe each time I hear PA deliver her lines in English. She also needs to learn voice elocution.

    ReplyDelete
  12. PA is M. Sooo sad, yun ang pinaka mahirap kasi it will never change. Lalabas at lalabas talaga yung flaw niya. Tumpak ang blind item nah toh... One cannot have everything talaga. I feel bad for the whole production dahil sa delay, apektado lahat. And as an actress, I think mahihirapan talaga si M pag ang role niya requires fluent English languange because she will never be able to deliver. Sad to say, she can't pronounce the words the way it should be. So that means her roles will be limited to her capacity as an actress.

  14. si M na kahit balutan mo ng dyamante at perlas ay hindi parin kapani paniwala na alta o mayaman ang role. It is not about the accent. It is about having proper diction, pronunciation, and enunciation of words.

    1. e yung pronounciation nakabase sa accent, kapag american at british magkaiba minsan pronounciation. dami pang big words na ginamet pareparehas lang naman. isa ka din e.

  19. M of KaF. Hindi din naman basehan ng kagalingan sa diction and pronunciation ang pagtatapos ng pag-aaral. Take rivals M and H of KaP as examples: M finished college pero medyo matigas talaga ang dila pag dating sa English, whereas H barely finished high school pero nadadaan sa pasosyal effect ang pagsasalita ng English (her grammar is a different story though). Sana M of KaF went through coaching first bago sumabak sa teleserye since they knew her character will require much of that.

    1. 1:06 hindi rin sa kagalingan ng diction at pronunciation nababase ang kahusayan sa grammar. Take it from H.

  20. Dapat kasi ang mga artista talagang nagiinvest para sa self-improvement. Wag makontento sa kung ano lang ang kaya nila. They owe it to their audience to be the best when performing especially because they're paid very well. Nakakainis manood kung nasisira ang characteriztion dahil ang sagwa magpronounce.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Natutunan ko na importante ang communication skills pero mas importante na talented ka at mabuti makisama. Daming magagaling mag English pero limited din ang range sa pag-arte. Kuha sya ng accent training coach dami dyan galing BPO, kaya ineutralize accent kung magtyaga.

  22. This is M. She can try to finish her schooling through distance education, and she can be taught how to speak English like a native speaker by a language coach. M should not feel bad overhearing the co-stars, she should take this as a challenge to make herself better. After all, showbiz life won't be forever.

    1. This is true. Isang example is si J na hunky star sa ka-F. Dami pumupuna na TH daw sa pag-eenglish pero ang gusto ko sa kanya aminado sya dahil ang main goal naman nya talaga ay self-improvement at hindi para magpa-sosyal lang. Parang crab mentality nga namang i-accuse agad ng social climbing when ang goal lang ng tao is self-improvement. Right naman nga ng bawat tao umusad

  25. Funny naman Kung Yung remark ng co actors is ganun considering they also don't speak good English.

    ReplyDelete
  26. M has lots of room for improving her craft..hire a tutor to polish her english. Dedicated naman sya sa trabaho at mabait.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If she really wants to, she still can go back to school naman na, for sure naman pwede siyang mag slow down sa work muna.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is M. She should take this as a challenge to herself to learn something new by learning English. At least it's easier now because you have the Internet. She can also finish school. It can be done if you really apply yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sana tinulungan na lang ng mga co-stars si M. Nagtutulungan naman dapat sila para sa show. As for M, more practice pa and try to watch as many english films and programs makukuha din nya yung diction. Sa kanonood ko ng hollywood movies and tv shows dun ko nakuha yung accent. Go girl hindi pa huli ang lahat.

    1. Yes the 2 actresses did not attend college but they know how to mimic naman po kaso si M superrr pangit mag english she doesn't know how to be fluent and confident. Meron naman po ibang tao hindi naka college but they read and watch a lot of american movies and they can speak well.

  33. Dapat mag hire na siya ng personal coach para mag benefit din longterm, di lang para sa show na to. Di naman masama kung hindi ganun kagaling mag english, pero advantage din kasi kung articulate ka. Mas maraming opportunities.

    ReplyDelete
  34. keep on practicing PA! kaya mo yan. dadating ka rin sa point na gagaling ka na mag-memorize ng mahahabang lines, whether in English or tagalog at gagaling din ang English accent mo.

    yang 2 kasama mo sa teleserye, dumaan rin naman sila sa ganyang situations. hindi magiging award-winning actress yung isa kung di sya nagsimula sa wala.

  35. I feel sorry whoever it is in the blind item. Wala naman tayo sa America so let's not put her down dahil lang sa accent nya.
    It's also explained na hindi cya nakapagtapos ng pag-aaral because of financial difficulty the reason for her to enter showbiz.

    As long as hindi cya pasaway at willing naman tumanggap sa mga flaws nya, i don't think we have the right to judge this person.

    ReplyDelete
  36. gayahin nya si puffstar, khit di nagcollege ok diction nya. khit nilalaro nya she can mimic good diction. thats the way artists does. sana kung anong flaw nya dun sya magconcentrate na aralin nya pra makalevels sya sa iba.ok nman syang actress. audience are paying so artists should give a good show.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It does not matter, she is more successful than those who have the American twang. Those elders mentioned in the narrative would only wish their children would achieved what M has had accomplished in her chosen career.
