Talent manager and entertainment reporter Ogie Diaz revealed that actress Yen Santos received a ‘motivation’ from him after the latter showed signs of difficulties in acting.
In his online show, Ogie said that in 2011, during the taping for ABS-CBN’s fantasy series ‘Mutya,’ he noticed Yen was having difficulties crying on set.
According to him, he volunteered to the director to help Yen to release her emotions.
“Si Yen… Naaalala ko nung 2011 yata yon, “Mutya,” talagang si Yen ay di makaarte, di makaiyak… Siyempre, sabi ko sa direktor, ‘Pwedeng ako na mag-motivate sa kanya? Sabi nung assistant director, ‘Huwag, wag muna, hayaan mo siyang makinig lang ng music, gusto niyang makinig lang ng music. Tapos yung tumutugtog yung bata, ‘Sana ang buhay.. “Ang tagal, sabi ko, anong oras na…sabi ko sa assistant director, ibigay mo na sa akin, ako na, ako na, ako na ang bahala diyan,” Ogie narrated.
After he received permission from the assistant director, he quickly confronted Yen and gave her some motivational messages.
“Ano ba yan? Nakakaloka ka! Nag-arti-artista ka pa, hindi ka pala marunong umarte! Wag ka nang mag-artista, nakakaloka ka. Tingnan mo, gusto na naming umuwi, ikaw hanggang ngayon di ka pa rin makaiyak. Kaisa-isa at kahuli-hulihang eksena ito, hindi mo pa magawa. Nakakaloka ka, andito tayo sa Batangas, jusko luluwas pa tayo ng Maynila. Ano ba?!” Ogie said while narrating the meeting between him and Yen.
The motivational speech given by Ogie seemed successful as Yen quickly cried.
“Sorry, sorry…, iyak ng iyak talaga si Yen. Sabi ko, ‘take na to. ‘Aris, aris…’ ‘Cut, very good,’ sabi ng director. Sabi ko, o ang galing-galing mo,” he said.
