Aiko Melendez, may natutuhan kay Maricel Soriano

UNFORGETTABLE ang performance ni Aiko Melendez as a villainess at the soap Prima Donnas (2019-2021) of GMA Network and Wildflower (2017-2018) of ABS-CBN.

But as an actress, she revealed that she has had her own share of baptism of fire.

Sa isang virtual presscon, tinanong si Aiko sa kanyang unforgettable encounters with the senior stars.

Aiko vividly remembers her encounter with the Diamond Star, Maricel Soriano, in the movie Santa Claus Is Coming To Town wayback in the year 1984.

She delineated the role of Maricel and William Martinez’s daughter. Kasama rin sa nasabing pelikula sina Snooky Serna at Gabby Concepcion.

Minsan raw, nakatulala raw siya habang nagba-blocking. Na-starstruck raw siguro siya sa kanyang mga kaeksena.

When it was her turn to say her lines, hindi raw niya magawa.

Child star pa lang daw noon si Aiko, at, in fairness, maayos naman daw siyang kinausap ni Maricel.

“Bata pa lang ako, six years old pa lang ako.

“Hindi naman niya ako sinindak.

“Parang, ‘Hoy! Bakit nakatulala ka riyan?’ Alam n’yo si Nay Mary.”

Basing from Aiko’s narrative, Maricel was frank but devoid of pagtataray at pagkainis.

“So, pinagsabihan ako ni Nay Mary, ‘Kung gusto mo mag-artista, hindi mo dapat pinapakinggan o mine-memorize lang ‘yung linya mo. Dapat ‘yung mga linya rin ng kasama mo, alam mo, i-memorize mo, para alam mo kung kailan ka papasok.’

“‘Yun siguro ‘yung dala-dala ko, ‘yung itinuro niya sa akin na pagiging propesyonal.

“Na kahit may sakit ka, you have to report sa set, lalo na kapag ‘yung sakit mo kaya mo i-bear.

“So, that’s one thing I learned from Ms. Maricel, which up today ay pina-practice ko pa rin.”

According to her, they were given the chance to work together in the movie Filipinas in the year 2003.

It was a family drama that featured Maricel, Aiko, Richard Gomez, Dawn Zulueta, Victor Neri, and the late Armida Siguion-Reyna.

Magkakapatid sina Aiko, Maricel, Richard, at Victor sa pelikula.

Sa pagkakataong iyon, hasa na si Aiko bilang dramatic actress.

Aiko intimated: “When we did Filipinas, all-star cast ‘yun, so siyempre lahat ng mga kasama ko do’n sobrang beterano, tapos director pa namin si Joel Lamangan.

“So, dapat talaga lagi kang ready.

“Hindi lang ‘yung ready ka lang dahil hindi mo pa linya. Dapat kapag eksena, alam mo lahat nangyayari sa paligid mo.”
