Revelation 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 tries acting for a change

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.

Erik Santos will try acting for the first time after being in show business for six years. In the July 24 episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya, he will play an OFW who applied as a singer but became a housekeeper at the Venetian Hotel in Macau. In preparation for his role, Erik underwent a workshop with Laurice Guillen. He also observed the movements of the letter sender who accompanied the Kapamilya stars when they shot their episode in Macau.

Marunong bang umarte si Eric Santos? Biruin mo sa isa pang napaka-popular na programa at isa sa kinikilalang pinaka-mahusay na drama anthology na umeere sa kasalukuyan sa TV, ang Maalaala Mo Kaya, siya napasali. At hindi siya kakanta ng theme song nito, aarte siya, gagampanan niya ang role ng pinaka-mahalagang character sa episode.
Mukhang mapapasubo si Eric at talagang kailangang mag-effort dahil ispesyal ang episode na kinunan pa sa Macau sa direksiyon ni Mae Cruz.
Sinasabing lahat ng na-feature na artist sa MMK ay gumaling na artista, mapabilang kaya sa talaan ang mahusay na manganganta? At ito na ba ang simula ng kanyang pagiging isang aktor?

Prince of Pop Erik Santos will showcase his acting mettle in a special episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK)” on July 24, Saturday. He will play an OFW who applied as a singer but became a housekeeper at Venetian Hotel in Macau. The episode is directed by Mae Cruz and also stars Kristel Moreno, Paw Diaz and Jojit Lorenzo.
This is Erik’s first starring role. “I enjoyed my first-ever acting job. I didn’t feel much pressure because I got the support of my co-actors and the staff of ‘MMK.’ I’m deeply honored to be given this great chance to act alongside good actors. Sobrang galing at bait din ni Direk Mae! I hope I could give justice to the role I am portraying. Acting is like singing. You have to put the right amount of emotions and passion to be able to convey your character’s message to the public,” Erik enthused.
