He may not be a full-fledged astista yet but Andres Vasquez has already reaped two acting awards from last Sunday's Protege gala night. Andres was one of those few proteges who were awarded for their exemplary performance in last week's acting exercise wherein all the proteges got the chance to act alongside the "Diamond Star" Ms. Maricel Soriano in five short films directed by Cannes Film Festival award-winning director Brillante Mendoza and written by Palanca awardee Floy Quintos.

The 21-year old protege from Metro Manila was awarded as Best Male Protege by Ms. Maricel Soriano and was also chosen by Brillante Mendoza to receive the Breakthrough Performance by an Actor Award.

After the show, Andres was lost for words when he was interviewed backstage about the awards he received.

"Masayang masaya ako kasi actually hindi ko talaga inasahang magkakaroon ako ng award at hindi naman nila sinabi sa amin na meron palang awarding na mangyayari, nalaman lang namin bago mag-gala. Tapos ito biglang may dumating, tapos dalawa pa, kaya talagang napa-wow nalang ako," said Andres.

Before joining Protege, Andres has already been acting as a professional theater actor. He became a stage performer after he was spotted by a theater director while he was working part-time in a fast food chain. From then on, stage acting has become part of his daily routine.

"Binibigay ko po talaga yung sarili ko sa pag-arte ko. Ang goal ko lang talaga ay mapakita ko yung acting talent ko and maging safe ako sa elimination," he shared.

Apart from Andres, Elle Ramirez (Mega Manila) also received a special award for Best Female Protege and the Visayas Team for Best in Ensemble Acting.(

"Kung pwede lang akong tumambling ngayon gagawin ko e (laughs). Ganun ako ka-excited. It’s a new journey, new people to work with, new atmosphere. Para sa akin change is good; it will help you develop more as a person not just as an actor. Mas mag-eexpand yung experience ko dito!”

This is how Rafael Rosell expressed during his contract signing with GMA-7. He is so excited to work in the Kapuso network most especially working Marian Rivera who will be his leading lady in the Philippine remake of the Korean series Temptation of Wife.”

He candidly shared his initial impression of Marian. “To be honest, I’ve heard a lot of rumors about her – both positive and negative – pero sa akin kasi until makausap ko talaga yung tao hindi ako naniniwala. Pero nung nakasama ko siya doon ko nakita that she’s a very nice person, she’s nothing like what people are saying. Para sa akin, first-hand experience is what matters,” he said.

Rafael did not expect that upon his transfer to GMA-7, he will immediately venture into primetime with GMA’s Primetime Queen.

“Sobrang honored talaga ako kasi hindi ko naman inexpect na yun kaagad ang ibibigay sa akin ng GMA pagdating ko dito,” said Rafael.

Rafael said that working in a new network feels like joining show business once again.

“Tulad nga ng sinabi ko sa mga kaibigan ko, para akong nag-uumpisang mag-artista ulit. Naaalala ko yung unang punta ko dito sa Pilipinas, I was so excited, I was inspired, ganon na ganon ang nararamdaman ko ngayon kaya sobrang excited po ako,” he said.

Since the expiration of his contract with ABS-CBN’s Star Magic, Rafael’s career has been managed by Popoy Caritativo who is also the manager of Marian Rivera and Dennis Trillo.

“Matagal ko na rin kasing naririnig sa mga friends ko sa industriya na interesado si Popoy na mag-manage sa akin and so nung mag-expire yung contract ko with Star Magic, siya ang unang naisip ko. Nag-meeting kami at wala naman kaming naging problema sa terms and conditions namin, at OK yung rapport namin, and so siya na,” shared Rafael.

Before working on “Temptation of Wife,” Rafael Rosell taped two episodes of Chef Boy Logro’s “Kusina Master” and he will also appear in the first week of the upcoming primetime fantasy series, “Aso ni San Roque.”

“Sa ‘Aso ni San Roque’ first time ko pong makatrabaho ang isang hayop (aso) and doon ko na-realize na after midnight, kahit tao pa man o hayop talagang hindi na nakakasunod sa mga direction and command,” he quipped.(

Fresh from the success of "The Healing," Martin Del Rosario returns on another horror movie via "Amorosa." He plays the character of Amiel, one of the sons of Angel and the brother of Enrique. "Challenging ang role ko dito since I'll portray the character of a blind man."

When asked about his terrifying experience, Martin shared, "ako nung bata ako, takot talaga ako sa manyika." "But when I grow old, na-overcome ko na siya. Pero 'nung ginagawa namin 'ung movie na sinasaliwan ng frightening sound ng piano, bumalik 'ung takot ko. Pagnakakakita uli ako ng dolls, agad kong pinalalayo s'kin," Martin explained.

Enrique Gil on the other hand shared that he is a person who didn't got frightened easily. "Hindi talaga ako matatakuting tao. But when doing the movie, I felt scared because of the location." "Foggy kase 'ung place tapos nasa gitna pa ng forest na walang tao," he added. "Amorosa: The Revenge" is actually Enrique's first ever horror film!

The cast also revealed their favorite horror film which truly makes them scared. Majority of them like "Jaws" and "The Exorcist." Ejay Falcon who is also part of the lead characters shared that his most favorite scary movie is the "Aswang" episode of the local film "Shake, Rattle, and Roll!"

The Whole Cast and Director of the Movie

Angel Aquino further shared that her character as Rosa is her most challenging role. "Dito kase hindi ka lang nananakot. Horror sya na may kasamang drama," she emphasized. Angel is best known in the teleseryes like "Magkaribal" and "Maria La Del Barrio" as she played the remarkable antagonists namely Vera and Victoria Dela Vega! "Amorosa: The Revenge" is actually her second horror movie since she was already part of the previous classic film "Siquor."

The movie is also a family drama wherein the story revolves around the mother and sons. The family undergone an accident that will change their lives. It tackles the importance of decision and its consequences.

According to the director of the movie, the title "Amorosa" was derived from a midnight flower. We will see how this kind of flower is related to the whole flow of the story. For me, the title of the movie is actually the combination of the names of the characters of Martin as Amiel, Enrique as Rommel, and Angel as Rosa. Putting "Amiel," "Rommel", and "Rosa" altogether brings us "Amorosa!" Cool!

Also part of the movie are Carlo Aquino, Franco Daza, Nico Antonio, Jairus Aquino, Mosang, Richard Quan, and with the special participation of Xyriel Manabat. The movie also introduces Jane Oineza.

"Amorosa: The Revenge" will start to frighten the theaters nationwide this coming August 29, 2012! It's truly a must see movie and an extra-ordinary horror flick! Two thumbs up!(

How will this change their relationship? What awaits them as they return to the city?

Recently, the primetime show created a buzz online after #kahitpusoymasugatan and KPM trended on Twitter.

Don’t miss “Kahit Puso’y Masugatan,” weekday nights after “Lorenzo’s Time” on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.(

For most of the proteges, this week's gala night is just one of a series of nerve-wracking, anxiety-ridden activities that they have to go through as the road to the big artista break gets narrower each week. But for North and Central Luzon protege Reese Tayag, this week's elimination night is the end of her journey in the competition. Reese was eliminated after scoring the lowest in an acting performance wherein all proteges were given the chance to act alongside the "Diamond Star" Maricel Soriano in five short films directed by Cannes Film Festival awardee Brillante Mendoza and written by Palanca awardee Floy Quintos.

"Sa ngayon po sobrang malungkot po ako dahil wala na po ako sa show at mamimiss ko po ang mga kapwa ko protege," shared Reese during an interview after the show. "Pero wala naman po akong pagsisisi sa sarili ko. Nagkataon lang siguro po na hindi talaga napakita yung kaya ko pong ipakita. Naniniwala po ako sa sarili ko na ginawa ko po yung best ko," she said.

Although Reese is out of the competition, she is not giving up on her dreams to become an 'artista.'

"Naniniwala po ako kay Papa God na lahat po nang nangyari ay may dahilan. Manalo man o matalo, dun palang sa pagiging part ko ng Top 20 panalo na po para sa akin iyon," she said.

Reese thanked her mentor Ricky Davao for everything she has learned from the actor-director.

"Sobrang malaking bagay po sa akin ang mga iyon. Iyon po yung mga bagay na kahit kailan ay hindi masusuklian sa buhay ko."

Only thirty percent of the total score was based on the text votes while seventy percent was taken from the average of the scores given by the four judges -- director Bert de Leon, actress Cherie Gil, GMA executive Anna Teresa Gozon-Abrogar and actor-comedian Joey de Leon. Reese, however, does not take her elimination personally against the judges.

"Nirerespeto ko naman ang opinion ninyo at yung desisyon po ninyo, at doon naman sa mga sumuporta sa akin at nagtiwala, maraming salamat pa rin po dahil kung hindi po dahil sa inyo ay hindi po ako makakarating dito," said Reese.

Reese's ever supportive mother who watched the gala night inside the studio quickly cheered up her daughter after walking down the stage.

"Sabi po ng mama ko sa akin, 'Anak, wag kang umiyak, ngumiti ka lang. Diba nga tulad ng lagi mong sinasabi may dahilan lagi si Lord para sa lahat. Hindi man ikaw ang manalo ngayon malay mo bukas makalawa yun naman ang big break mo,'" shared Reese.

Reese said that she will miss all of her fellow proteges especially Shelly and Steffi who are her closest friends inside the quarters. Inside another dressing room adjacent to where Reese was interviewed, the other proteges were comforting Shelly and Steffi who were also very much affected by their friend's elimination.

Aside from Reese, two other proteges came close to leaving the competition. They are Vien Alen King of Mega Manila and Japs de Luna of North and Central Luzon.

Prior to the announcement of Reese's elimination (during the commercial break), bottom protege Vien Alen broke into tears thinking that he would be eliminated. After the show, Vien Alen admitted to being anxious about the elimination.

"Naisip ko po talaga na ako yung matatanggal kasi yung dalawang team mates ko po kasi talagang magagaling po sila kaya naiyak po ako kasi alam ko pong ginawa ko rin naman po yung best ko," explained Vien.

Special Awards:

One of the surprises this week was the awarding of special awards to proteges who showed commendable performance in the short films. Maricel Soriano herself picked Elle Ramirez and Andres Vasquez (Mega Manila) as the Best Female and Best Male Proteges, respectively. Andres also received the Director's Choice Award for Breakthrough Performance.

The Visayas team, on the other hand, received the Best in Ensemble Acting.

The special awardees were automatically saved the eliminations.

A tougher week ahead:

The number of proteges who survived the cut so far is down to 14, and it will even get smaller each week until the grand finals wherein only one male and one female protege will be hailed as victors.

Who will get eliminated next week? We'll find that out next Sunday during the next gala night of Protege: The Battle for the Big Artista Break hosted by Dingdong Dantes and Carla Abellana. It airs live after iBilib on GMA-7.

Good luck to the remaining hopefuls!(
