Serious Backfiring

Versatile Actress (VA) perhaps has everything that one can hope for in a network talent. She’s loyal and once she started her career in her present network, never did she entertain the idea of moving anywhere else. Then, she has one of the most beautiful faces, which comes from a good-looking lineage. Over the years, she has honed her acting skills and has even earned praises and recognition for her portrayal of roles.

VA is a reliable performer as well. Her performances on stage are always awaited and fans look forward to her numbers. Thus, the network entrusted to her a major role in a big project where she is working with two performers who are highly respected for their quality performances. In the project, VA and her team are required to give spontaneous insights. VA was as enthusiastic as the others in expressing her opinion and she’s making good points until she tried to go head-to-head with her fellow panelists in speaking in English.

VA is not exactly known for her skills in English and her attempts resulted in what she deemed was comedic. Given her grammar errors, VA would simply laugh them off. The production team said that they will resort to editing to remove the errors of VA. However, in the succeeding episodes, VA continued her style, which was no longer sitting well with the executives. The project requires expert opinion and not funny statements that might not be helpful at all. Besides, the quality of the project might be affected and if the public gets wind of VA’s errors, the image of the project might be ruined. Editing could no longer fix VA’s antics.

Having no choice, the production team met with VA and informed her of their concern. VA was instructed to speak in Filipino or Taglish and leave the English to her co-workers. VA laughed off the suggestion to save face obviously. However, VA has no choice but to follow, as no other show has been lined up except for this big project.

  4. This is M. Nung nasa W sya, yan na ang concern ng production. Yung delivery nya ng lines in English.

  5. I don't na si A kasi marami pa syang projects na naka line up.

    ReplyDelete
  6. si M, pero wala naman din masama na magtagalog na lang ang mga celebrities na hindi naman talaga makapagsalita ng straight English. Para hindi naman pagtawanan.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Si M. Nahanay sa mga inglisero. Kahit sa role nya dati hirap sya sa inglisan.

  10. Tsk. These people can easily hire personality development coaches or attend some classes to help them with social graces and speaking skills. What's stopping them? It won't take so much time to make yourself better in every way. And if you're in showbiz, all the more reason that they should!

    1. she had a tutor, but siguro may punto talaga siya or hindi naman matuturo ang comprehension.

      Delete
    2. si S nga kahit paano natuto na

      Delete
    3. totally agree. Nakakairita to watch teleseryes or movies na ang role eh mayaman, sosyal or alta tapos pag nag english ang sama ng diction.

    4. Ito rin pinagtataka ko, bakit hindi sila mag invest sa self improvement after all hindi lang naman para sa showbiz kundi para sa sarili nila and afford naman nila. Lagi nalang what you see is what you get chuchu ang reason and they are too proud siguro.

      Delete
    5. LMAO! She’s already too old for that! Ano ka ba?? As they say you can’t teach old dogs new tricks. This is M obviously.

      Delete
    6. I disagree 12:40. No one can't be too old for learning or for self-improvement lalu na kung gugustushin talaga. I, too, don't get it why they'd rather invest in signature bags, etc but not for personal development. Kung sa ibang professions, people undergo training to upgrade skills, moreso, dapat yung entertainment industry. Back in the old studio days of LVN and Sampaguita pictures, they school their stars on how to conduct themselves properly in public, even pati na yung proper etiquette at pananamit.

    7. 3:25 If it's English speaking and accent she's having troubles with, I would suggest that she watch English movies/news/series/talk shows for at least an hour a day. If those bore her, she can watch cartoons such as Noddy, Peppa, Ben and Holly, Charlie and Lola, and even the old Barbie movies. But much better if she can hire someone to coach her if attending classes won't do.

      12:40 She must have the desire to learn and improve herself. Age doesn't matter much, when the will is there to help herself get better.

  11. Sabi nga ng production pwede mag tagalog wag na mag taglish. Magandang suggestion yun, bakit nga mag taglish kung hindi kaya, may mga alta na nag tataglog lang kaya pwede.

  12. Aww si M. wala rin tlgang taong perfect. shes adorable though, tanggap naman niya na di siya kagalingan dyan hehe

    ReplyDelete
  13. Anong show to? M should stop pretending she’s intellectual.

    ReplyDelete
  14. M. Actually her existence in that project was questionable. May mas deserving pa and well equipped sa experience kaysa sa kanya. Hindi porke magaling ka ay puede ka rin sa role na ibinigay sa kanya. And her English is always cringed.

    1. 5:25 AM Magtagalog ka na rin lang. Lakas ng loob mo punahin si M questionable din naman English mo.

    2. 7:06. Sabihin mo nga kung ano questionable sa English ni 5:25.

  15. Anong project to

    ReplyDelete
  16. M kaso highly respected ba ang performance ni B?

    ReplyDelete
  17. VA is M, problema nya na to khit sa mga TS nya before. Sana bumalik sya sa pag aaral since kaya naman isingit with her schedule now.

    ReplyDelete
  18. More clues please!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. mga baks, more clues kay M, pls?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Totoo naman kasi na hindi talaga dapat idaan sa biro. Grabe din pressure kay M sa show na iyon. Hindi madali ang magbigay ng opinion. Minsan, kahit talented ka, when it comes to expressing one's self, hindi madali sa iba.

    ReplyDelete
  21. No other show has been lined up. This can't be M. She has an upcoming teleserye.

    ReplyDelete
  22. M. Marunong naman sya pero obviously hindi kasing galing ng mga kasama nya na fluent talaga. Nothing wrong mag-Tagalog or Taglish sya mas sa maging comedy yung show.

    ReplyDelete
  23. M-aminado sya na mahina sya sa english,i,sana in her spare time mag aral sya,hire a tutor.

    ReplyDelete
  24. si m na magaling na aktres and performer.. weakness niya talaga yang pag english.. so what, di mag tagalog..

    ReplyDelete
  25. EH BAKET KC NILAGAY PA SYA SA SHOW NA YAN? ALAM PALA NG PRODUCTION NA DI KAGALINGAN SA ENGLISH SI M SO DAPAT IBA NALANG NILGAY JAN.

    1. Agree! There’s more deserving.

      Delete
    2. di naman kasi sila naghahanap ng inglesero o inubliga yung mga celeb na mag/english. nataon lang na magaling at natural na inglesero ang mga kasama kaya nakipagsabayan nga lng dba?! so di kasalanan ng production yun.

      Delete
  26. Bakit kasi si M ang nilagay sa show na yan?!!! Ang dami namang deserving.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Parang si M nga to. Nevervako naging fan nya pero ba't ba kailangan mg English eh pwede namn mag tagalog since nasa Pinas tayo?
    Heto naman kasi mga Pinoy, pg magaling mg English, matalino na agad.
    As long as one can deliver and follow instruction, language should not be a problem esp if it's our dialect.

    ReplyDelete
  28. 1:45 maybe it should have been cringe-worthy not cringed
