“He deserves the seat. He’s one person who conceptualized the movie with me,” Bela Padilla said when asked why her ex-boyfriend Neil Arce was sitting with her at the Last Night press conference.
Hanga ang working press sa versatility ni Bela Padilla who is a very good scriptwriter as well apart from being a good actress.
Full-length screenplay ni Bela ang new movie ng Star Cinema fittingly billed Last Night… which starred Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga. Nang tanungin kung alin ang mas love niya, kung acting ba o pagsusulat, she gave a totally interesting answer.
Reading daw ang mas gusto niya because just like her parents, she was devoted to reading at an early age.
Kapag laruan raw, may limit sa one toy a month. Pero kapag libro, you can buy all you want.
Looking back, doon raw nag-umpisa ang kanyang highly fertile imagination. Kung acting raw kasi, sariling character mo lang ang focus mo. But if you happen to be a writer, buo raw sa isip mo ang bawat character to the point na nag-uusap-usap na sila para mag-work or maging full.
Working with Direk Joyce Bernal, she said, is always a pleasure dahil complete at absolute raw ang trust niya rito and she considers her, her mentor.
Sabi ni Bela, kahit hindi raw siya naka-attend ng pre-production meeting for Last Night, her work was intact and the original flow of the story hasn’t been changed.
Right now, si Bela can be considered as an actress/writer. But since movie direction is a field she would want to penetrate as well, it’s highly possible that she would have the director as one of her calling, too!
