Newcomer actor Jeremiah Lisbo sure does feel the pressure to offer something new in every project he does. He believes that there should be something to look forward to each time he portrays someone on screen.
“Ang sa akin naman po, bilang actor ay dapat talaga wala kaming default na parang kapag nakita nila ang ibang projects namin, ‘ah, palagi ito ang acting niya? Ito palagi ang emosyon na ipinapakita niya,’” he said during the online press conference for the movie “Love Is Color Blind,” last Friday, Dec. 3.
(As for me, as an actor, we should not have a default [performance] like if they see our projects, [they would say,] “Ah, he acts like this all the time? This is always the emotion he shows.”)
Lisbo thinks it is his obligation as an actor to really know the difference from each performance and to figure out what each project requires.
Playing his latest character in “Love Is Color Blind” is a challenge for Lisbo since he just came from another challenging project, “Love At First Stream,” where he portrays a playful heartthrob.
“Nagpapasalamat po ako nang marami kay direk Leo dahil tinulungan po niya ako na maintindihan at maunawaan ko ang character ko kasi medyo hindi pa ako agad naka-move on sa last project ko, eh,” he said.
(I am thankful to our director John Leo Garcia because he helped me understand my character, since I have not yet been able to move on from my last project.)
Lisbo is also all praises for his “Love At First Stream” director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
“Ang dami ko pong natutunan kay direk Cathy. As in iba ‘yung level, eh. Kahit hindi ko eksena, nanonood ako kay direk Cathy. Every detail, nakikita ko ‘yung mga pagkakamali namin bilang mga actor,” he said.
(I learned a lot from director Cathy. As in it’s a different level. Even if it’s not my scene [being shot], I watched her. Every detail, I see our mistakes as actors.)
“Love Is Color Blind,” led by the new love team of Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano, will start streaming on Dec. 20. JB
