On Tonight with Boy Abunda, well known theater actors, real life couple, and co-producers of the new musical entitled DOM: Dirty Old Men Isay Alvarez and Robert Seña shared what it was like working with JaDine.
Isay played Nadine Lustre’s mom on On the Wings of Love, she said, “alam mo she’s very talented, matrabaho, and very giving.
Robert plays JC Santos’s dad on Till I Met You. “With Nadine I can tell ang dami niyang iniisip - nag-iisip siya lagi. Kung ano yung eksena, she asks questions, bago mag-take. I never thought na yung dalawa (James Reid and Nadine), they’re the sweetest persons I’ve met.”
Working with JC, Robert said, “si JC kasi galing sa theater. So medyo grounded siya. Well apparently, he loves working with me. Nakakatulong daw sa eksena niya. Nice person, lagi siyang unang babati pagdating ko sa tent namin.”
The couple both got to work with known theater director Nestor Torre. Isay shared, “believe it or not, up to now, I look up to him as my mentor still. Yung pag mayroon akong mga tanong na hindi ako sigurado, I go back to him and hindi ko makakalimutan na lahat ng alam ko sa teatro ay galling sa kanya. Maraming parte sa katawan ko galing sa kanya.”
The most important lesson Robert learned from him as an actor is as he said, “yung hindi ka magaling. So you have to continue learning and learning, hindi ka mag stop. And don’t trust your brain, always learn.”
