FREELANCING PERKS! Empress Schuck happy to work for both ABS-CBN and GMA Network

  • Empress Schuck could work with ABS-CBN and GMA Network.
  • She would also appear in drama anthologies for the rival networks that would air at the same time.
  • This, apparently, caused confusion and violent reaction among netizens.

Empress Schuck remains a freelance actress. So, she could work with ABS-CBN Corporation and GMA Network whenever she could. In November 2017, she also responded to question from netizens regarding how she could work with both networks.

She would also appear in drama anthologies for the rival networks. This, apparently, caused confusion and violent reaction among netizens.

In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph, Empress pointed out that she doesn’t have a contract with any network or television show. She also explained what triggered her to explain her freelance status in 2015.

“Siguro hindi lang talaga sanay yung mga tao ng ganun, pero kasi even before, pwede na kasi yun pero hindi nga lang sanay yung mga tao. Ako kasi, before, matagal ako sa ABS nakakontrata so hindi talaga ako pwedeng makita sa kabila. Pero since noong umalis ako sa ABS kasi tapos na yung contract ko, and then naging freelancer ako, noong nasa GMA ako, freelancer pa rin ako noon, gumawa lang ako ng teleserye. So after noong teleserye na yun, freelancer pa rin ako.”

Empress shared that netizens have violent reactions on having anthology projects with both networks which air the same time.

“Nagkasunud-sunod nga yung work ko, parang doon lang nila napansin, so parang nagreact na mga tao. Minsan parang ano nga, e, violent reaction na, ‘Ano ba ‘yan, wala man lang loyalty? Ano ba ‘yan, naguguluhan ako.’ Parang naiinis sila kung saan-saan nila ako nakikita. Hindi naman ako talaga pala-sagot, pala-explain so parang bigla na lang ako nagpost ng explanation na freelancer po ako, na wala po akong kontrata katulad dati, so baka nasanay lang po kayo. Pero kasi kapag freelancer ka at wala kang ibang trabaho, pwede ka sa kahit saan.”

When Empress starred in ABS-CBN’s Asintado, she couldn’t accept another project from GMA Network.

“Pero since ayun nga, noong nagka-Asintado ako, it’s a show, it’s a teleserye so it’s a commitment, di ba. So ayun, since may teleserye ka, kahit mag-freelancer ka, hindi ka pa rin pwede sa iba. Medyo complicated siya pero basta isipin nila, pag freelancer ka, pwede kahit saan.”

Now that Empress had bid farewell from he stint in Asintado, she will be welcome again to do projects for both networks.

“As of now, yes. Pero since some of my projects right now are with ABS, so I will guarantee naman everyone na sa Kapamilya pa rin ako mapapanood.”

Empress enjoyed being a freelance actress. She also explained that she used to be locked in ABS-CBN Corporation.



“Oo kasi unang-una, first time ko yun kasi simula bata ako hanggang dalaga ako, naka-lock in talaga ako sa ABS. Noong sobrang bata naman ako, wala akong contract, nagkakashow din naman ako sa GMA kasi nag-Etheria pa nga ako noon, e. Namiss ko naman na magpalipat-lipat. Pero ayun, depende lang kasi sa mga benefits di ba, sa mga advantages. But as of now, katulad ng sinabi ko, sobrang chill lang ako ngayon, wala akong ine-expect at all kasi sobrang saya ko, sa life ko, sa kung anong nangyayari ngayon. Siguro I’ll just keep on getting better in whatever aspect in life. Basta relax lang ako ngayon kung freelancer, may contract, may show, may movie, go lang kung saan may work!”
