THE “P” TALKS!
BY: Pilar Mateo
I made “kumusta” to showbiz’ Tom Cruise, who is working hard in the scenes Direk Richard Somes tasked him to do in “Kid Alpha 1”-Javi Benitez.
“HEY Mrs. Pilar! Sorry I just saw this. Habang ginagawa yung movie may anxiety ako with how it’ll all turn out and how I’m doing at the same time.
“Narealize ko na nakakapagod talaga at hindi biro. I learned so much in such a short time. I made sure to do my best and prove that I can perform at the level they want me to be.
“Sobra akong grateful for the opportunity and for the mentorship of the entire team. They helped me a lot throughout the process. I’m going to pass it on to the team again para sa post-prod.
“Excited ako na ishare ang trailer and of course yung movie para makita ng lahat yung pinaghirapan namin. I’m also aware that I have a lot to learn in all aspects of film. Sa acting with my action and drama, then the process of filmmaking itself and I’ll get into how to sell and market the movie in the coming months.
“I’ll miss the adrenaline… adrenaline junkie talaga ako at yung character ko is a tortured soul killing machine. I’ll miss everything about it dahil maraming first para sa akin. Actually halos lahat.
“So for next, may upcoming movie project ako pero hindi ko pa pwede ishare ang mga detalye pero I will soon kapag may approval na ng team. Action movie ulit to. :
Has he and his leading lady Sue Ramirez taken their friendship to a notch higher?
“Hahaha! It’s going well. We really click. Thank you again. And see you again soon. ”
Javi spent his birthday with Sue planting trees. And are seen doing notable things together.
Bagay sila ‘di ba?
JAVI’s co-star in “Kid Alpha 1”, the comedian-magician Jeffrey Tam wants to invite the public to “THE GRANDMASTERS OF MAGIC II
“Live in Manila” on December 7, 2019 at the Music Museum. So, GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!!
The event is presented by MINI COOPER PHILS. & FABER CASTELL.
Said Jeff, “Makaksama ko ang mga magicians from “America’s Got Talent”.
“Pinili nila who’d the best magician in every Asian country. Saka sa hong kong ako nag champion nung 2011 for ASIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS OF MAGIC kung saan naglaban laban lahat ng champion ng Asia. And ako po nakakuha ng grand prize that year, 2011.”
Doing magic must be Jeff’s comfort zone. But what does acting in the movies give him?
“Ibang high din siya. Especially if you are working with your peers. In this case, supporting a newcomer who’s got what it takes to be in the action genre, si Javi. In a way, instrumental kami ni Joross (Gamboa) who is also part of the movie, to convince Javi’s Dad na i-try niya ang action genre. Aprub naman kay Direk Richard. So, eto na ‘yun! Manggugulat din si Javi! Parang magic!”
And may the magic cards in Jeff’s hands mesmerize the audience this December!
