Game na game ding sinagot ng Star Magic talents ang mga tanong ng hosts na sina Demai Granali (section editor) at Rizza Benedicto (editorial assistant) upang mas makilala pa sila ng publiko.

Narito ang unang bahagi kung saan tinalakay ang advantages at disadvantages ng pagkakaroon ng connections sa showbiz...


Demai: Welcome back to PEPtalk. Of course, the last time, meron tayong iniwan na question for Janella, Julian, and Julia of Star Magic Circle batch 2013.

So Janella, umpisahan natin sa ’yo. How would you live up to the expectations of the public bilang showbiz royalties ang parents mo?

Janella: “Hmmm. Well, siguro kasi my mom’s [Jenine Desiderio] more on theater.

“E, hindi naman ako nagti-theater, so I’ll just keep getting better and better dun sa.. ang focus muna, dun sa tv.”

Demai: How about si Julian?

Julian: “Sa ngayon po, kailangan mag-work hard with all the work. Ayun po, magtrabaho nang maigi.”

Demai: Okay, ‘yan. So si Julia naman?

Julia: “I think, just do your best.

“Mahirap na may mini-meet na expectation. Siguro it’s both good and [bad].

“Yeah, you just have to do your best. Yeah.”

Demai: Do you think there’s an advantage for the three of you kasi may showbiz connections na kayo, prior to the auditions and all?

Julia: “Both. Advantage and disadvantage.”

Demai: What are the advantages and disadvantages na nakikita ninyo?

Julia: [talking to Julian] “What do you think?” [laughs]

Demai. For each of you, what do you feel is the advantage and disadvantage being a daughter or son of somebody?

Julia: “Disadvantage na lang.”

Demai: Sige, ano yung disadvantage?

Julia: “No, it’s not normal. Parang they expect a lot. They expect a lot from you, di ba?

“And it pressures you, but at the same time, puwede mong magamit yung pressure in a good way or…

“If you’re gonna take it as a bad thing, [don’t]. Good thing about it is.. it makes you wanna be better.”

Demai: How about for the others naman na... who went through the process of audition and all those things?

Rizza: Kasi si Jon, nag-audition siya... isa siya sa mga nag-audition for Star Magic, so pa’no yun? Ano yung disadvantage [nun]?

Jon: “Siguro... feeling ko, equal naman po talaga, e.

“Kahit naman sabihin nating may royalty po, kasi kahit royalty ka, kung hindi ka naman nakikitaan ng potential o kung hindi ka naman magaling umarte sa TV, kahit po anak ka pa ng dalawang artista, kung bibigyan ka po nila ng project, e, kung di naman po nagagalingan sa inyo yung mga tao, hindi ka rin po papanoorin.”

Julia: “That’s true.”

Jon: “Kapag galing ka po sa pila, yung mahahabang pila, yung mga tulad ko po na hindi naman galing showbiz yung family namin, e, siyempre na sa amin po yung parang pagpupursige—lalo na kailangan namin magpatunay pa lalo ng galing namin.

“Kasi nga, pinaghirapan na namin ‘to, e. Hindi naman kami basta-basta nakapasok lang.

“Pumila po kami nang mahaba para mag-audition kami nang matagal.

“Gusto namin na ipakita talaga yung best namin... yung galing.”

Demai: Okay, so I think Liza wants to add something to what Jon said.

Liza: “For Julia, she’s the one who’ll be doing her work, not her parents.

“So hindi naman po yung parents niya ang aarte para sa kanya. I think na advantage din po.”

Julia: “No, it doesn’t matter who you’re related to. I think what’s gonna keep you in the industry is how much work you’re gonna put into your craft.

“It’s not your last name. It’s not anything.”

Alex: “At saka, yun po, I think on both sides, it’s a double-edged sword din.

“It’s a good thing that they have [connections] but it is also a bad thing ‘cause it’s a lot of pressure. But for us…”

Kit: “We can make our name.”

Alex: “We’re still clean slate. Malinis pa yung names, so we have nothing to prove yet.”

Demai: Do you think it’s easier for you guys, kasi clean slate kayo?

Alex: “It’s the tough part for everybody. Kasi no one knows us….”

Kit: “Yun yung disadvantage namin.”

Julia: “I think it is fair for everybody” [claps]

Narito naman ang ikalawang bahagi kung saan nakipagkulitan ang newly-launched talents sa mga host. Makikita sa bahaging ito kung gaano na nila kakilala ang isa’t isa.

Demai: Para mas makilala natin ang Star Magic Circle Batch 2013, tatanungin namin kayo [isa-isa]. Magtatanong kami, magbibigay kami ng katangian ng bawat isa at sasabihin ninyo kung sino sa grupo yung magpi-fit dito sa description na ‘to. Anybody can answer. Umpisahan natin kay... Rizza, shoot the first question.

Rizza: Sino yung mabilis umiyak?

May mga sumagot ng "Julian" at mayroon din namang "Liza."


Demai: Is this in person? O mabilis umiyak sa workshop pag pinaiiyak? Or iyakin lang siya?

Julia: “Yung mabilis umiyak sa acting? Uhm. Jane. That’s not a question.”

Demai: So si Jane pagdating sa acting, pero in real life?

Kit: “Ito po, ito po.” [pointing to Liza]

Demai: Sino naman, kung sakaling bibigyan kayo ng leadership award, sino yun?

Julia: “Alex”

All: “Alex”

Julia: “No doubt.”

Liza: “Tatay.”

Demai: I was going to say, “Kuya of the group”

Julia: [pointing to Jerome] “I think this is the tatay.”

Demai: I was going to say, “Kuya of the group.” Pero sabi ninyo tatay. Bakit tatay?

Julia: “I think the dad would probably be Jerome, the mom would be Ingrid, and the kuya is Alex.”

Demai: Bakit?

Julia: “Jerome, when he talks, he’s like [a] daddy advising.”

“Sample. [When the interviewer says] ‘Anong masasabi mo sa success ng Be Careful [With my Heart]?’

"[mimics Jerome] ‘Sobrang nagpapasalamat po ako hindi lang sa mga taong sumusuporta, siyempre pati yung nasa taas, kung hindi dahil sa kanya, wala ako dito. …’”

Demai: So malalim siya magsalita kaya siya naging daddy. E, bakit naman naging mommy si Ingrid?

Jerome: “Wala lang po.” [laughs]

Demai: Gusto ninyo, sila lang talaga magka-pair? So panindigan na natin ’yan yung “IngRome” [Ingrid-Jerome]. Kung may mom, dad, at kuya ang group, sino naman ang baby ng group?

All: [points to Liza] “Liza!”

Liza: “I’m not the youngest. Janelle kaya is the youngest.”

Julia: “It’s not the youngest. It’s the most baby.”

Rizza: Her age or?

Sagot ng isa sa Star Magic talents, “No. Innocence.”

Demai: Pa’nong inosente?

Alex: “Minsan po hindi niya alam yung sinasabi niya sa sobrang inosente niya.”

Liza: “Huh? Huh? Okay. Okay, whatever.”


Rizza: “Sino sa mga boys yung malakas ang appeal? So girls, answer muna..”

Ingrid: “None!” [laughs]

Michelle: “Julian.”

Liza: “My daddy said [it’s] Jon.”

Janelle: “I don’t know.”

Rizza: For you, Jane, sino pinakamalakas ang appeal?

Jerome: “Wala daw dito.” [referring to Khalil Ramos]

Jane: “Di. Lahat naman kasi sila.."

Demai: Sa girls naman? Sino yung pinakamalakas ang appeal sa girls?

Alex: “Ibalik ko po sa inyo.”

Demai: Ano ba, Star [Magic] Circle 1984 ako, 2013 ang topic. Chos! So, sino sa girls ang pinakamalakas ang appeal?

Alex: “Julia.”

Demai: How about the others?

Alex: “Jon, sino nga sa ’yo?”

Jon: “Lahat po sila, e.”

Alex: “Isa lang.”

Kit: “Oo nga, lalaki naman tayo.”

Jon: “Si Kit.” [laughs]

Kit: “Actually po, may aaminin po kami ni Jon..”

Demai: Nagkakabukuhan na ng loveteam dito.

Rizza: Oo, “Kit-on,” may “IngRome.”

Demai: But, really, a unanimous choice, meron ba?

Julia: “Si Jon, nahihirapan.”

Kit: “Para sa akin, si Liza.”

Demai: “What is it about Liza that you find appealing?”

Kit: “Her nose.”

Demai: “Nose?”

Kit: “Di po kasi, wala lang, mahilig ako sa nose.” [laughs]

Liza: “Sana naging nose na lang ako, di ba?”

Demai: You, Jerome?

Jerome: “Ahh.. para sa ‘kin, si Liza din po.”

Demai: Naku, magagalit yung “IngRome” fans! [laughs]

Demai: Jon, sino sa ’yo? Lahat may sinabi na.

Jon: “‘Di. Iba-iba po kasi sa ‘kin.”

Kit: “I-clear lang po, ito lang po yung nagagandahan.”

Jerome: “Appeal.”

Kit: “Appeal. Ganun na rin ‘yon.”

Jerome: “Jon, pag pinili mo si Janella, lilibre kitang McDo.”

Jon: “Si Janella.”

Jerome: “Yun! JoNella!” [Jone-Janella]

Demai: Next question: Sino naman ang pinakamaarte sa grupo?

All: “Julia.” [laughs]

Demai: Unanimous, a!

Julia: “You know what, I’m just the pinaka-friendly. [laughs] Really.”

Demai: Maarte ka rin in different things, di ba?

Alex: “Meron siyang hashtag Julia Problems.” [#JuliaProblems]

Demai: Parang yung sossy problems, sa kanya, Julia Problems?

Alex: “[Magkakasama] kaming tatlo nila Julian and Julia, we were picking shoes. [kailangan] dun, 3 p.m.

“Dumating kami [ni Julian] dun mga 2:30. ’Tas andiyan siya, [sabi namin] ‘Why did you get here so early?’

“She’s like, ‘I don’t know. You guys take so long, I was forced to shop tuloy.’”

[Everybody laughs]

Alex: “Hashtag Julia Problems” [#JuliaProblems]

Julia: “But you know, it’s not bad, yung pagka-sossy ko. It’s not bad.”

Jon: “It’s bad.” [laughs]

Julia: “It’s not bad. It’s actually really cute. It’s cute. [laughs] Well, honestly... [laughs]”
