Mon Confiado lists down what it takes to be a professional actor.
Kilala bilang isang napakagaling na character actor si Mon Confiado. Madalas na tumatatak ang character na ginagampanan niya sa pelikula at telebisyon.
Nitong June 6 ay umani rin ng mga papuri at positibong feedback ang pinost ni Mon sa kanyang Facebook account tungkol sa kung gaano kahalaga ang professionalism at ang acting abilities para sa isang aktor na kagaya niya.
Simulang post ni Mon, “An actor’s professionalism is just as important as their acting abilities.”
Sinundan din niya ito ng ilang mga paalala na dapat tandaan ng mga artista sa showbiz.
“Show respect to others. Respecting others is one of the best ways to show professionalism.
“Remember that no matter the size of your role, you’re part of a bigger picture. Keep your ego in check—you’re almost always replaceable.
“Don’t be late. Give yourself time to travel, eat, make up, dress up and be ready to work at start time.
“Keep your character idea flexible. The director may steer you in a different direction, so try it out. Don’t be defensive—it’s a collaboration—but ultimately the director has the final say.
“Befriend all the production & tech people working on set from utility, art dept, camera dept, make up artists, wardrobe to pa’s.
“The hours will long and tedious, so pace yourself and get lots of rest.”
Sa huling bahagi ng kanyang post ay iginiit ni Mon ang halaga ng pinili nilang propesyon at ang pag-appreciate dito.
“And most importantly, remember every day that this is what you want to do more than anything in the world, and that you’re lucky to be doing it. This is where you come to be safe, inspired, take risks, collaborate, and create art. Appreciate it.”
Puro “idol” naman ang tawag kay Mon ng netizens na nag-comment sa kanyang post. Para na rin daw silang nag-acting class sa mga ibinihagi ni Mon sa social media.
