Mon Confiado pinabilib ang netizens sa ‘no-make up transformation’ sa bagong role




Marami ang napahanga sa aktor na si Mon Confiado nang ma-achieve niya ang “look” sa gagampanang role nang hindi kinakailangang gumamit ng make up.

Ani Mon sa isang post, pinili niyang personal na danasin ang pinagdaraanan ng papel na gagampanan sa pelikulang “The Fisher” sa halip na pekein ito.

“Suntanned/No make up Physical transformation. The actors are urged to feel the true sentiments they require in each scenario rather than compartmentalize and fake them. This can cause psychological and behavioral changes for as long as they are in the position,” aniya kalakip ang mga larawan kung saan makikita ang pagbabalat niya dala ng sunburn.

Saludo naman ang mga netizen sa dedikasyon na ipinakita ni Mon sa kaniyang role.

“That’s what you call ‘burning passion.’ The best and always will be. Salute, Sir!” sabi ng isang netizen.

“Isa sa pinaka magaling at flexible na actor ng Pinas. Lagi kong inaabangan mga pag ganap nyo sir, lahat may puso lahat may paninindigan, laging buo laging may pagmamahal,” ani Gelo Nabor.

“I salute you, sir, for your dedication to your craft! Truly one of the best actors in the country!” sabi naman ni J. Sanchez.

“You are one of the best actors that i admired so much, you always make sure that your character will be justified. Super dedicated ! God bless you sir Mon,” komento naman ng isa pang netizen.

Sabi naman ng ilan, ang dedikasyon ni Mon sa kaniyang role ang dahilan kung bakit tumatatak ang kaniyang karakter.

“This is way he is always effective in whatever character he portrays. He is true to his craft! Snappy salute to you Sir Mon!” ani JM J.

“I really love all your works sir. Kapag kontrabida ka sa palabas talagang galit rin ako sa’yo. Grabe ka magbigay buhay sa karakter.”

Ang “The Fisher” ay isang pelikula sa direksyon ni Paul Soriano.
