Xian Lim has had enough.
The actor-director has taken to Instagram to finally address those who continue to doubt his professional integrity and dedication as an artist.
“You can insult me, mock me all you want, take everything away from me and strip me with nothing but don’t you dare question my professionality, passion and the amount of work I am willing to put in my craft in ALL the projects I make. I may not be the best but I will work my ass off to give you results,” he said.
“As an artist I am willing to do whatever it takes to deliver even if it kills me. I will move mountains, give my own sweat and blood, take that leap of faith for my staff and all the people around me who shares the same vision as I do,” he added.
He also lamented being “a victim of insensitivity” by a person whom he refused to name.
“DONE. Signing off social media for a while. What a waste of time watering dead plants,” he said.
Hours prior to this, Xian went on to Instagram Stories to rant about having to deal with “lots of straight up rude, disrespectful people” in the business.
“Sometimes, I question myself why. Why put up with all the bullcrap people throw at you? Then I realize, we all need a couple of bumps in the road, little trips, bruises and scratches to help us become a stronger, wiser person.”
“I work on my craft every single day. I OBSERVE. I AM WILLING TO LEARN. I am PASSIONATE at what I do. I DO NOT do it for the money. Honing my craft is my life. It is part of my blood. It is a part of my DNA to give it to my 1000x percent. That is more than what you could ever ask for.”
He stated in another post, “Your ‘intention’, whatever it may be, of yelling and raising your voice at me saying ‘Ikakasira ng kareer mo ang pagkuha sa akin as your actor’ will forever be a part of my motivation to treat everyone around me with tons of respect because you clearly do not.”
Currently, Xian is gearing up for a lineup of small and big-screen projects, including films Untrue and Love the Way You Lie, his comeback television series Love Thy Woman, and his first-ever full-length film as an official director, Tabon.
