erik santosRevelation ang sinabi ng mahusay at magandang direktor na si Mae Cruz sa naging performance ng champion singer na si Erik Santos sa kanyang kauna-unahang pagtatangka na sumabak sa larangan ng aktingan sa award-winning drama show na Maalaala Mo Kaya. “Kasi parang ano, e, considering zero experience, I think ang pinaka-experience niya na umarte is sa music videos. In fact, meron kaming isang MV na ginawa together na inabot kami ng madaling araw kasi gusto ko ‘yung parang emote-emote pa siya. And then, ano nga title nu’ng song? Ah, ‘I Will Never Leave You,’” pagalala ni Direk Mae. “Tapos sabi niya kay Tito Boy (Abunda, his manager), ‘Tito Boy, teleserye ata ang ginagawa namin ni Direk Mae.’ Kasi parang napapagod siya na, kasi hindi siya sanay na acting the whole day.”

erik santosSumabak na rin sa aktingan ang champion singer na si Erik Santos. Mapapanood siya for the first time sa Maalaala Mo Kaya sa direksyon ni Mae Cruz ngayong Sabado. Malaki ang pasasalamat ng singer sa direktor dahil grabe ang ginawang alalay nito sa isang baguhan na tulad niya pagdating sa acting.

Nakumbinse si Erik na sumabak na pag-arte dahil para masubukan niya kung may iba pa siyang kayang gawin bukod sa pag-awit. “Unang-una, feeling ko, gusto ko naman po’ng gumawa ng kumbaga, I want to try something new. Kasi puro ako singing, singing. Masasabi ko kaya ngayon lang kasi ‘yung readiness. E, feeling ko ngayon pwede na ring i-try kasi parang ako na lang ‘yung, sa mga kasabayan ko parang ako na lang ‘yung ‘di umaarte. Ako na lang ‘yung nagi-inarte na ayaw umarte, parang ganu’n. So, sabi ko, why not?”

erik santos Habang nakakarinig ng papuri si Erik Santos sa kanyang acting sa Maalaala Mo Kaya na pala­bas ngayong gabi sa ABS-CBN, lalo siyang kina­kabahan dahil baka hindi totoo ang mga sinasabi nila.

“But I know that deep inside I gave a good per­formance, my all. Ginawa ko lahat ‘yung alam ko at ‘yung mga natutunan ko,” sabi ng magaling na singer na umamin na hindi niya gagawing propesyon ang pag-arte.

“Sa pagkanta pa rin ako. Paminsan-minsan siguro, kung merong magandang offer, aarte uli ako. Pero hindi ko ito gagawin ng madalas, masi­sira ang boses ko. Puyatan sa pag-aartista at ma­sama ito sa boses. Also dito sa episode ng MMK puro pag-iyak ang ginawa ko. Minsan matagal nang tapos ang eksena, humahagulgol pa rin ako kaya namamaos ako. Again masama din ito sa boses ko,” dagdag pa niya.

Inaamin ni Erik na isa na namang feather in his cap ang pag-aartista niya.

Erik Santos is an OFW in tonight’s episode of
ABS-CBN’s Maalaala Mo Kaya

MANILA, Philippines – There’s got to be a first time. For Erik Santos, it’s acting for the first time via ABS-CBN’s Maalaala Mo Kaya tonight.

This would have been unthinkable for Erik seven years ago, when he turned down an offer to play himself in a Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) episode on his touching life story. He was then a newbie in showbiz, fresh out of his victory in Star in a Million.

Singing was his one and only comfort zone. So Erik said, “No, thanks” to ABS-CBN’s offer. The role landed on Jericho Rosales’ lap.

How times have changed! Piles of albums, concerts and TV guestings later, Erik is ready to face the cameras, not as a singer for an MTV, but as an actor. The role is not light and breezy the way most parts assigned to new actors are.

Seven years after he first got an offer to try out acting, Prince of Pop Erik Santos has finally taken the plunge via an episode on “Maalaala Mo Kaya” to air Saturday, July 24.

“Ako kasi ‘yung tao na ayaw na napre-pressure. Before, I didn’t feel I was cut out for this aspect of show business. But because the right material finally came my way, pumayag na din ako,” he told Bulletin Entertainment and other members of media in an interview held July 21.

In the episode, Erik plays an OFW who applied as a singer but became a housekeeper at Venetian Hotel in Macau. The balladeer relates to his role since he is also “a breadwinner, a singer, at saka matiisin” for real, and because his father worked as an engineer in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia a few years back.
