Direk Lester Ong ibinunyag ang sikreto ng isang magaling na ‘action star’
SA napakaraming Pinoy action movies na pinapalabas ngayon, sino sa tingin niyo ang pinakamagaling na “action star” para sa inyo?
Nakapanayam ng INQUIRER ENTERTAINMENT ang Action Director na si Lester Pimentel Ong at ni-reveal niya kung ano ang sikreto para maging “the best” pagdating sa action films.
Para sa kaalaman ng marami, si Direk Lester ay dating wushu national athlete at ngayon ay director na ng action-drama series na “The Iron Heart” na pinagbibidahan ni Richard Gutierrez.
Rebelasyon niya, dalawang bagay lang ang dapat tandaan para maging magaling na action star, ang maging fit at marunong ng martial arts.
“If you also want to become popular action stars like them, you have to do two things. First, you need to be fit. Second, you need to learn martial arts. This is because known actors in Hollywood movies were really martial artists first before becoming actors,” sey ng direktor.
Bukod pa raw diyan ay kailangang maging mabuting aktor na tulad ng napansin niya sa mga katrabaho niya ngayon sa ginagawa serye.
Sey niya, “This is what I’ve noticed with Ian, Richard and even Jake Cuenca. They are very serious about their craft and are focused on becoming good actors.”
“More than anything, that’s what you should concentrate on if you want to last in the industry,” aniya.
Nakwento pa ni Direk Lester na matagal nang nagma-martial arts sina Ian at Richard, pero marami ang hindi nakakaalam nito dahil hindi sila nabibigyan ng oportunidad na maipakita ito.
Chika niya, “Ian has been a martial artist since he was 7 years old. He never stopped. Richard started young, too, and did several kinds of martial arts.”
Patuloy pa niya, “We found good opportunities for them to showcase this in two projects. This is also why I enjoy working with them.
“Our creations as actors and director/fight choreographer are unlimited. The possibilities are endless because these two can deliver.”
Nabanggit din ng action director na hindi rin ito nalalayo pagdating sa mga babaeng action star.
Diretshan pa niyang sinabi na si Angel Locsin ang masasabi niyang one of the best para sa kanya.
“She is, first and foremost, a good actress. She shows a lot of layers in her acting. I latched on to that—we put layers even to her physical movements, too,” saad niya.
Paliwanag pa niya, “If you think Angel is awesome at action, it’s all because of the design. We base this on the character’s internal journey.”
“In drama, emotions are expressed through the eyes, while in action, it’s through your whole body,” aniya.
