Would-be suitors get intimidated by Ina Feleo's parents

With parents like award-winning director and actress Laurice Guillen and award-winning and well-respected actor Johnny Delgado, who wouldn't be intimidated? But Ina Feleo says having no boyfriend is okay with her since she's very busy with her acting career right now.


Kung papipiliin ay gusto rin ni Ina Feleo na sundanang yapak ng kanyang inang si Laurice Guillen at lola na si Ben Feleo sapagiging film directors. Pero biglang dumating nga ang oportunidad na magingisang artista at ito raw muna ang bibigyan niya ng concentration.

Graduate si Ina sa Creative Writing course saAteneo de Manila University at nagplano siya noon na kumuha ng filmmakingcourse sa New York. Pero dahil sa naging sunud-sunod ang kanyang actingassignments ay on-hold muna ang mga iyon.

"I really wanted to follow the footsteps of my loloand mom sa pagiging director. Si Lolo Ben kasi, he's more on making comedies. Iremember nga yung mga Andrew E movies na ginawa niya. Si Mommy naman, she'smore on the melodramas and she's an actress as well. They serve as myinspirations.

"But now that I have acting projects, ito munasiguro ang haharapin ko. I'm only 22 years old and I have so much time to makedecisions. Sabi nga ni Daddy [Johnny Delgado], to enjoy what I have now athuwag akong ma-stress sa pagpili. Enjoy daw my youth and the opportunities thatare coming my way."

CINEMALAYA BEST ACTRESS. Nakitaan nga ng husay sa pag-arte si Ina sa indie film na Endo, kung saan nagwagi siya ng kauna-unahang best actress award saCinemalaya Film Festival last year. Dahil sa magandang performance niya aynakakuha siya ng ilang nominasyon sa iba't ibang award-giving bodies.

"Hindi ko alam that the role made such a greatimpact on many people. I am proud to have done the movie and hindi ko ngainasahan yung mga recognitions. It made my family and friends proud of me. Akonaman, I want to do better and keep on doing good projects."

Wala pa nga raw bagong film project si Ina kaya saTV muna siya mapapanood. Kasama si Ina sa cast ng Ligaw Na Bulaklak ng ABS-CBN 2 at sa bagong show ng TV5 na Hush Hush. Pinaalala nga ni Ina na angunang TV show niya ay ang role ng isang deaf mute sa GMA-7 afternoong dramaseries na Kahit Kailan.

"Bagets na bagets pa ako noon sa Kahit Kailan and madali lang ang role nabinigay sa akin. Wala akong mine-memorize na lines pero more on emotions ako samata.

"In Ligaw NaBulaklak, medyo daring ang character ko kasi para akong desperado salalake. It's a complex role and I'm pretty challenged with it.

"In Hush Hush,isa ako sa nagbigay ng concept ng story. It's about artista and the lifethey lead behind the camera. What's good about it is that my mom is directingit and she's directing me as well. The first time my mom directed me was asmall scene in Tanging Yaman. I wasthe one ice-skating doon sa mall na pinapanood ni Jericho [Rosales]. Ngayon, masbigger ang role ko and kasama rin sa show and sister ko na si Ana Feleo."

INTIMIDATED BY LAURICE AND JOHNNY. Nakakapagtaka na sa ganda ni Ina ay wala raw itongmanliligaw.

"Wala nga talaga. I don't know what's wrong with me,"sabay tawa niya.

"May mga nakakarating sa akin na may mganai-intimidate daw na mga guys because my mom is Laurice Guillen and my dad isJohnny Delgado, so parang natatakot daw sila.

"Mababait ang parents ko and they would welcomepeople into our home basta maganda ang intentions. Pero come to think of it,okey lang na walang manliligaw kasi hindi ko rin magawang ma-entertain silabecause of my work.

"Tsaka I'm not in a hurry naman kaya mas okey ngaitong walang suitors. Kung meron man, sana maintindihan niya at suportahan niyaang work ko."
