The character actor recounts on Facebook how he gave Baron ‘the benefit of the doubt.’
Ping Medina posted a lengthy recount of Baron Geisler’s alleged show of disrespect on the set of indie movie “Bubog.”
The character actor even said he gave Baron the benefit of the doubt despite his notoriousness and even offered to help him get work again in ABS-CBN and GMA.
However, after promising not to drink on the set, Baron even borrowed 200 pesos from Ping to buy four bottles of beer.
The following day, Ping was shocked when during a crucial scene in the film, Baron suddenly peed on him.
“Napakabilis ng pangyayari. Naramdaman ko na lang na may bumabasa sa dibdib ko. Medyo mainit at may amoy.
“Unti unti ko na realize na putangina, ginagawa niya talaga to. Umagos ito. Basang basa ang shirt ko. Umagos ito hanggang sa bibig ko. Buti may nakatakip na tape.
“One take lang dapat ang eksena: so sinubukan ko mag stay in character. Pero at the same time nawawala na ako sa character.
“Umiiwas na ako sa agos ng ihi, pero di ako makagalaw.”
After the scene Ping said he contained himself but he wanted to break Baron’s face with his fists. But the former “Tabing Ilog” star seemed uninterested to fight with him.
“Pero nakita ko na hindi siya lalaban. Wala akong interes na bumugbog sa walang kalaban laban.
Dahil alam ko, kapag nabigyan na kita ng isa, mageenjoy na ako. At hindi ko na alam ang magagawa ko sayo. Malamang something na pagsisisihan ko. Yung tubo sa gilid, muntik ko na damputin. Kaya naglakad ng lang ako palayo.”
Ping asked TV and film producers if they wanted an actor like Baron on their set. He even stated that Baron belittled indie film producers saying, “Sa mga indie filmmakers na binabasura ng gagong to ang mga set niyo dahil ang tingin niya ay mas mababa ang trabaho niyo dahil maliit ang TF at hindi ito "bread trip" in his own words.”
Ending his post, Ping said Baron will eventually get what he deserves.
