THE “P” TALKS
BY: Pilar Mateo
QUINN CARILLO thought that her world will revolve only in the world of dancing and a little bit of singing as part of the girl group Belladonnas.
At this time of pandemic, Quinn is keen on finishing a course in Multi-Media Arts.
“Yes.Im still studying po. Mutimedia Arts in Meridian International College. It’s such a great school, very interactive and gusto ko talaga yung mga itinuturo.”
But, came this chance for her to give acting a try. In a Joel Lamangan project at that, “Silab”.
“Yung role ko po sa “Silab” is ako po yung comedic relief dito sa film. It’s kinda brief but ang saya niya i-portray kasi medyo harot harot ako dito ganon hahaha.
“Working with the cast was really enjoyable. I have worked with Cloe (Barreto) and Marco (Gomez), the bidas in the movie with Jason Abalos na, before sa group namin so we’re used to each other na and so was karl. So working with the veteran actors talaga was really fulfilling tapos under direk Joel Lamangan pa.
“Sobrang kakaiba yung experience parang mas lalo ako namulat sa acting world. Super bait nila Ms. Lotlot, Sir Jim Pebanco, Ms. Tabs Sumulong and Kuya Jason Abalos. They gave us, the newbies, so many tips and anecdotes na talagang na enjoy ko and I definitely learned from them talaga.
“Even with Ms. Chanda Romero, kahit saglit ko lang siya nakasama, she’s really such a bright person. For me ang ganda nang naging bonding namin with this film.
“Working with direk Joel, grabe parang check sa bucketlist ko. You could say that haha. Kasi syempre di ba si direk Joel Lamangan na yan eh. Yung makatrabaho mo siya eh talagang privilege. Lalo na sa baguhang katulad ko. Di naman lahat nabibigyan ng chance na ganon. So I really grabbed it, and i made sure I learned from him. Di ko ininda kahit mapagalitan ako, kasi para mapansin lang ako ni direk Joel is already such a big thing for me.”
Where does Quinn think she will focus more-singing, dancing, acting, her studies? Will she go on her own?
“Right now, i think so. A lot actually has been asking, ano nang plans sa Belladonnas kung tuloy pa kami or what. And I always tell them na I’m not really sure. Kasi sa situation ngayon parang di rin ‘ata economical ‘yung work namin as a group kasi nagsara yung mga means namin to perform like before we perform at Zirkoh Bar. So, medyo mahirap. And nagstart na rin kasi na mag solo solo kami into acting. The good thing naman is we support each other.
“Dancing will always be a part of me. Bata palang talaga ko sumasayaw na ko. I remember idol na idol ko dati Sexbomb hahaha. I dance to their songs talaga. But right now, acting is one thing na I wanna learn din talaga kasi the first time na I acted in front of the camera, iba din sa feeling. I guess performing in general is what gives me the rush? Iba eh. Parang I belong there talaga, eh.”
Looking forward to her launching movie?
“Yes of course! Who doesn’t di ‘ba? But im not in any rush naman to star in my own movie. Di po ako maarte sa role actually. I do the job that is given to me. No need to force it. I believe naman na everybody has their own pace.”
Dream leading man?
“Super crush ko talaga si Jericho Rosales, like childhood crush. Pero ngayon naman si Alden Richards din crush ko HAHAHA. In my dreams!
“I think I wilI be tiven the chance. I guess yung di ko pagiging mapili sa role is one attitude na magugustuhan sa akin. Adventurous kasi ako in nature, so I go with the flow. Marami ako na-encounter na nagmamadali sa pagpasok sa showbiz. Atat siguro, ganon. Eh kami kasi trained kami to be patient, na wag bibitaw basta basta. Siguro thats also one of my edge. ‘Yung training na sinapit namin under 3: 16 Media Networks. Not just sa dancing and singing kasi kami tinrain nga coaches namin, also with our attitude din. The values na inculcated in us. Para kahit saan makarating, nasa tama ang mga ginagawa namin.”
Let’s see how Quinn attacked her comic and a bit of being a villain in “Silab”. Will this earn her a bigger and more challenging in the next movie?
The Quinn B (Belladonnas) has started to earn her wings! Flap away! (30)
