Nora Aunor, hirap na hirap sa kanyang monovlog; Daniel Padilla, tinanggihan noon ng GMA-7

It was last May 21, 2020, Thursday, is Nora Aunor’s 67th birthday. The Superstar of the Philippine Cinema, Nora Aunor will be featured in the “Lola Doc” monovlog on May 21n 2020 at 6:00 P.M. on the YouTube channel of the Filipino shows.

Nora told the video on the “Tanghalang Pilipino” Facebook page how the monovlog was formed, at the invitation and guidance of her idol, Nanding Josef.
“Noong ibinigay po sa akin iyong script,”
Nora reveal,
“walang biro po, nagulat po ako. Ang haba nung sasabihin ko.
“Pero sa akin naman, naging challenge naman po iyon…”

Nora was nervous about her set of monovlogs, written by Layeta Bucoy. She repeatedly made monovlog sets because she didn’t seem happy with her interpretation. Nora admitted that her work was embarrassing.

The veteran actress continued,
“Noong ginagawa ko po ito, parang gusto ko nang sumuko.
“Kasi nga, parang… talagang hirap na hirap po ako talaga.
“Iba po pala talaga iyong gumagawa ka ng eksena na wala kang kausap. Para kang luku-luko!”

Nora’s two hands gestured in her senses.
“Na kinakausap mo… wala. Kinakausap mo ang sarili mo. Tinatanong ka, ikaw rin ang sumasagot!”
“Ang hirap po talaga!”

And at the tenth session of the Actors ’Cue on May 22, Friday at 7:00 P.M., one-on-one moderator Dirk Adolf Alix Jr. will be one-on-one.
But Director Adolf will be one-on-one with Daniel Padilla in the Actors’ Cue 10th session.

“We’ll ask Daniel po about his preparations for a role and yung tungkol sa mga anecdotes niya from his previous films,”

Direk Adolf said when he was chatted through Messenger last Wednesday afternoon. It was told to Direk Adolf that Douglas Quijano had brought Daniel Padilla to GMA 7, but the Kapuso team declined.

Tito Douglas Quijano was convinced of Daniel Padilla’s potential so he approached it on ABS-CBN. The one who told us this was Daniel’s mother Karla Estrada on June 20, 2009, Saturday noon, at Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City, while Tito Dougs’ remains were cremated. We were dealing with the very young Daniel Padilla in those times.
