Former Rated-R star Rosanna Roces is impressed with ABS-CBN’s young stars because they know how to respect a senior actor like her.
In an interview, Osang (as she is fondly called in showbiz) mentioned how these young stars have the initiative to greet senior actors in showbiz, “Ang mga bata ngayon, hindi mo na rin sila kailangang sabihan.”
Osang said that ABS CBN might have taught this vital lesson to young stars even before they began their acting career.
“Kasi, like sa ABS, ang unang itinuturo sa kanila kung paano talaga bumati sa mga senior. Parang yun ata ang una nilang itinuturo sa ABS, kung papano gumalang, kung papano magbigay-pugay.”
Roces has worked with many young Kapamilya stars because of the teleseryes she did with ABS-CBN.
Among those praised by Osang, she also worked with JM de Guzman, Jake Cuenca, Marco Gumabao, Diego Loyzaga, Albie Casiño, and Joseph Marco.
“Lahat ‘yan sila ganun, Wala kang matulak kabigin sa kanila. Okay sila lahat.”
The actress also clarified that this lesson also applies to them when they’re with senior actors.
“So kami, ganun kami lalo, kapag may kasama kaming mga senior sa amin, like sina Tito Ronaldo Valdez, Gloria Diaz, super ano rin kami, asikaso.”
When she was asked if she had any recent experience that she reprimanded a younger star for having bad manners toward senior co-stars. The actress shared that she experienced the opposite, it happened on the set of the upcoming movie Anak ng Macho Dancer.
When actor Miko Pasamonte was very kind and was very attentive to them.
“Hindi ko siya na-call out kasi napuri ko yung kasamahan niya. Yung Miko Pasamonte, super PR niya, so dun kami sa kanya natuwa. Nagkukuwentuhan kami nila Jaclyn Jose, si Allan Paule, Jay Manalo. Naghanap lang ako ng tubig. Aba, nawala siya. Biglang pagbalik niya, ang dami na niyang dalang ano… nilapag ice cream pa.”
Not known to everyone, Osang’s career flourished in the ‘90s, where she became known as the Sex Goddess at the time. Later, she crossed over to being a serious star and made dramatic movies such as Ligaya Ang Itawag Mo Sa Akin, Ang Lalaki Sa Buhay Ni Selya, and Ang Babae Sa Bintana.
Roces will be featured in the upcoming sexy-comedy film Paglaki Ko, Gusto Kong Maging Pornstar, starring Alma Moreno, Maui Taylor, and Ara Mina.
