Ping Medina Shares His Indie Film Experience!


He is the son of the veteran actor Pen Medina. He starred in the different Kapamilya TV series before particularly in "Tayong Dalawa" where he played the sidekick of Coco Martin. But he became popular when he portrayed the character of Tiyo Carlo, the kind and loving uncle of Mara and the secret-holder in the 2010 remake of "Mara Clara."     

Aside from TV, he even played different characters in the movie and in the different stage plays. Until last week, I finally met him in person as he starred in an exciting Indie Film.

Ping Medina is one of the two leading men of Kaye Abad in the historical film "Iliw" or "Nostalgia." During the red carpet advanced screening of the said movie in SM Megamall, I interviewed Ping about his latest Indie Film.



Ping narrated the highlights of his character in the film. His character was truly inlove with Fidela, the character of Kaye. But Fidela falls to the Japanese soldier.

According to Ping, "Iliw" is based on the true story set on the Japanese era. Because of the love between Fidela and the Japanese soldier, the City of Vigan was saved from tragedy! And yes, I witnessed that part on the movie. And that was truly tearful.

The movie was shot in the beautiful and in the rich place of Vigan, Ilocos Norte. The term "Iliw" actually means "nostalgia" in English.

Here is my video interview with Ping. Let's all watch this:


At the end of the movie, you can find yourself crying. The story was so touching. It will truly leave pain in our hearts specially when one character in the story sacrificed not only his love but also his life to save the person he truly loves!

And I now understand why the City of Vigan is still standing strong. Thanks for the true love! (RCB)

Ms. Gina Pareño: From "Lola Gets" to "Lolaine!"


Finally, I met in person the very famous "Lola Gets,"  the award-winning veteran actress Ms. Gina Pareño! Ms. Gina is now playing "Lolaine," the grandmother of Coco Martin in the hit Primetime superhero TV series "Juan Dela Cruz."

Actually, Ms. Gina reunited with Coco in the said teleserye. And this is now their third TV series together! They first worked together in the 2009 hit drama series "Tayong Dalawa" where Gina grabbed the title of "Lola Gets." Year after, they once more played the characters of grandma and grandson in another hit "Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo." Now after three years, Coco and Ms. Gina reunited for this hit fantaserye.

Right after the celebrity advanced screening of "Juan Dela Cruz" in SM Megamall, I got an opportunity to talk with Ms. Gina. And here is our video clip:



Ms. Gina is really an ideal lola! Though they were only "mag-lola" onscreen, Gina really treats Coco as her real apo! Me too, I like Ms. Gina to be my lola! My lola already died 14 years ago. And yes, I'm also close with my grandma!

The character of Ms. Gina truly adds spice to "Juan Dela Cruz." She put humor to the show. Thumbs up Lola Gets! (RCB)
