Frank Magalona making his own name in showbiz: "Siguro I would be the type na do’n sa creative side."

Frank Magalona is looking to make his own name. "Kunwari songwriter, painter, at saka actor parang gano’n," he says.


"Siguro I would be the type na do’n sa creative side—kunwari songwriter, painter, at saka actor, parang gano’n... At saka sa ano, sa damit na rin, sa damit," said Frank Magalona on how he plans to distinguish himself from his siblings who are also in showbiz.

"Kasi ano, e, nagde-design po ako, my dad’s business and then...

"Ayun, in the future, gusto ko pang lumago ’yon and mag-evolve ’yong mismong brand niya kasi…

"Three Stars in the Sun, The Francis M Clothing, so gusto ko pong mag-evolve ’yon."

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) was able to talk to Frank on the set of his GMA-7 afternoon soap Blusang Itim yesterday, August 4, at Provident Village in Marikina City.

He added, "Siyempre, iniwan sa ’min ’yon ng dad namin as his legacy. Pero siyempre, kailangan may contribution kami bilang mga anak at ayoko rin pumayag na wala akong contribution.

"Siyempre, di ba, parang unfair ’yon dahil binigay, parang binigay lang niya sa ’min ’yon at siyempre, gusto ko ring magbigay ng contribution — ’yon, para ’yon na nga, may maibigay ako."

BLUSANG ITIM. Blusang Itim is Frank’s first major project and first major role in a movie.

Frank told PEP that he was never pressured to enter showbiz.

"Hindi naman pressure, parang gano’n, ’yong family ko kasi, kumbaga, parang sinabi lang sa ’min ng magulang namin gawin namin ’yong gusto namin, so ’yon.

"Wala naman nag-pressure sa ’kin, naisipan ko lang na pumasok dahil matagal ko nang gustong maging aktor.

"And I think this is a good opportunity, so I just took it."

Frank plays the role of Angelo Soriano in Blusang Itim. Since this is his first lead role, he encountered some difficulties at the beginning but he was able to adjust very quickly.

"Ateneo Children’s Theater ’yon na pinaka-background ko.

"Tapos ’yong college, I did a music video and an indie film para sa isang project lang ng isang estudyante sa UP [Diliman]."

Frank attended an acting workshop before he started taping for Blusang Itim.

Does he consider himself a full-fledged actor?

"Siguro, kasi ginawa ko na po siya. Pero sa tingin ko ano, e, wala namang... Di ba, sinasabi nila there are no small roles?

"So, kumbaga, this is a big role, so I consider myself an actor na...

"Pero tingin ko, parang kailangan ko pang mag-workshop just to improve my acting."

How is Kylie as a leading lady?

"Kylie? Okay siyang katrabaho kasi… magaan, magaan ’yong feeling ko about work. Kasi ano, mahilig siyang makipagkulitan.

"Pero at the same time kunwari kapag tape na… seryoso, seryosong-seryoso.

"Pero ayun hindi siya mabigat katrabaho."

DREAM ROLE. As an actor, Frank has a dream role.

"Mahirap na Bisaya na naiwan ng parents na Amerikano sa Pilipinas, kasi di ba, ’yong features ko parang tisoy? And kaya ko naman mag-Tagalog."
