We have beautiful local movies and this pandemic is the best time to revisit or discover great works of very distinguished actors and indeed one of the best is the Diamond Star, Maricel Soriano.
Now that she is with ABS-CBN, the embattled TV franchise, is gearing up its digital channels thus making the veteran actress to be very much online.
It’s really the solid fandom that will remind everyone that celebrity’s success is more on longevity of career. During these days, popularity can be shortlived and demand for work can still be limited during the pandemic. It’s important and still challenging to gather loyal supporters to back you up for many years to all endeavors. Once they do, much is required to keep them insterested and excited.
For a fandom to grow, it should spread across generations and embracing social media is important but what if the celebrity is not tech savvy? Then it’s still is the fandom to carry it over, there’s a possibility to hire a team but still nothing beats those who are passionate of what they’re doing.
Ang Sa’yo ay Akin series is inspired on Inagaw Mo ang Lahat sa Akin movie top billed by Maricel and her role in the series introduces both Iza Calzado and Jodi Sta.Maria who are doing very notable projects. The two (2)episodes are interesting since the diamond star is setting a good expectation from the cast.
My wish is for Maricel to get more spotlight and other veteran actors to receive the same credits and respect just as how Hollywood actors are getting like Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster and many more. We just really love to see more projects that could unite her with other veterans like Vilma, Nora, Sharon, Gloria Romero and many more.
Still online is generous to newcomers and I hope that they learn perseverance, and the craft of acting. Most important are the right attitude and dedication rather than be conscious of popularity.
