Thankful ang StarStruck V winner na si Steven Silva dahil nabigyan siya ng pagkakataong mapasama sa cast ng Singaporean production ng musical series na The Boston: The Kitchen Musical.
Mula ito sa producers ng The Kitchen Musical, na naging big hit sa Singapore at tinampukan ng Pinoy performers na sina Karylle at Christian Bautista.
Nag-audition si Steven para sa naturang project.
At pagkatapos nga ng ilang call backs, napunta sa kanya ang role na Sid, isang pastry chef na may pagkamisteryoso ang pagkatao.
Kuwento ni Steven, “I auditioned in September 2013. They made me sing, dance and act.
“They asked me if I know anything about cooking, and I said that I hold a degree in Culinary Arts from California Culinary Academy in San Francisco.
“They also asked me if I’ve done theater. I said that I did one musical before with Frencheska Farr, in 2012, titled Hope for the Flowers.
“Then, three months went by before I got a call back.
“Akala ko nga wala na ‘yon at hindi na ako nakapasa.
“But then I got a call back. After numerous call backs, they finally said I got a role in The Boston.
“We immediately had a workshop and started shooting for the eight-episode series that will air in June on the Lifestyle Network.”
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Steven sa pocket presscon na inihanda para sa kanya ng GMA Artist Center, kahapon, May 6, sa GMA Network Center.
ONCE IN A LIFETIME. Nang magsimula raw sila ng taping para sa The Boston ay may teleserye pa si Steven noon, ang Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas.
Mabuti na lang daw at naayos ang schedules niya para mapagsabay ang shoot ng The Boston.
Saad niya, “I don’t want to give up the opportunity to do this kind of project.
“This only comes once in a lifetime.
“If I need to sacrifice something just to do this, then I am willing to do it.
“The experience doing The Boston is definitely priceless.
“And working with these great actors just makes me feel good because I was able to be in their company.
“I wish that this will open big doors for me in the future.”
Dahil sa kakaibang experience na ito ni Steven, he is considering a career in theater.
“I would like to dare myself into doing theater. I would like to gain more experience doing it.
“Since I’ve been in this business where I sing, dance, and act, might as well make the most out of it and try other things.
“Whether or not there’s a good role for me out there, there’s no harm in trying.
“At least nasubukan ko and I will not have any regrets after.”
Makakasama ni Steven sa The Boston ang veteran stage and film actors na sina Jennifer Blair Bianco, Michael Kotes, at Natalia Moon.
Ang iba pang Pinoys na kasama sa cast, bukod kay Steven, ay ang stand-up comedian-singer na si Dax Martin at ang stage actor na si Red Concepcion.
Ang direktor nila ay ang award-winning director and cinematographer na si Matthew Rosen, na nanalo na ng 50 national and international awards; kabilang na ang Best Commercial in the Philippine Araw Awards, Best Cinematographer in the Asian Ad Congress, Best Music Video Director in the NU Rock Awards, Bronze medal at the London Film Festival, and the Golden Quill award at the New York Film Festival.
