At the media conference for the Season Finale of ‘Lolong’ with the press, including LionhearTV, on September 27, Kapuso stars Ruru Madrid, Arra San Agustin, and Shaira Diaz shared how the action-adventure series helped them grow.

San Agustin highlighted how privileged she felt working with the seasoned cast of ‘Lolong.’

“Ako siguro, unang-una nakatrabaho din po kasi namin ‘yung mga veteran actors po namin na sila Miss Jean Garcia, si sir Bo (Christopher De Leon), si sir Ian (De Leon), si ate Roc (Rochelle Pangilinan.) So, parang napakalaking bagay po sa amin po ‘yun. 

“For me luxury po siya as an actor, na nasa mga ‘yung generation po namin na actors na parang privileged po ‘yun para sa amin para makatrabaho po sila, ma-experience po namin na maka-eksena po sila. Alam mo po ‘yung in 20 years, ikukwento mo sa apo mo, na ‘uy, sobrang proud ko sa sarili ko na naka-eksena ko sila.'”

Diaz echoed San Agustin’s response, noting how much she learned with her co-actor Malou de Guzman.

“As a young actor, para makatrabaho sila Tito Bo, sila Miss Jean, Kuya Ian, si Ate Roc, si Tita Malou, si Tito Bembol, sobrang malaking factor siya. Ang laking tulong niya kasi iba ‘yung parang first hand experience mo with them, lalo na kapag sila ‘yung ka-eksena mo. 

“Ang dami mong matutunan, especially kay Tita Malou. Hindi lang siya basta co-actor. Kasi marami akong eksena with Tita Malou. Ang dami niyang naitulong sa akin in a way na parang may mga times siyempre na may makakalimutan ka mga bagay sa character mo. So, parang si Tita Malou ‘yung mga senior actors sila ‘yung magta-tap na, ‘Oy, bakit ganyan ‘yung suot mo, di ba dapat ano ‘yung character mo as ganito ka.’ So ipapaalala nila.”

As for Madrid, he noted that performing with the seasoned cast was like having an acting workshop while working.

“Para kaming nagwo-workshop habang nagtra-trabaho. Ganon ‘yung pakiramdam na kahit na panoorin lang namin sila, may natutunan na kami. At the same time, sobrang chine-cherish ko ‘yung mga moments kapag kunwari si sir Bo, magku-kwento ‘yan tungkol sa mga experiences niya dati while doing ‘yung mga projects niya before. 

“Kinukwento niya kung papaano ‘yung naging atake niya, kung paano ‘yung style niya, papaano ‘yung ganito. Kumbaga, lahat ‘yun nakukuha namin. Para kaming sponge na kinukuha lang namin ‘yung natutunan din nila, habang naglalakbay sila sa mundo ng industriya natin.”
