Derrick Monasterio Gets Good Reviews For His Portrayal Of Almiro In 'Mulawin Vs. Ravena'

DERRICK MONASTERIO is elated over the positive feedback he’s getting for his performance as Almiro in “Mulawin Vs. Ravena”. We’ve seen him in some dramatic episodes and he is quite effective in getting the sympathy of the viewers, especially in his scenes with Dennis Trillo who is very mean to him.

And we all know that Dennis, a multi-awarded actor who can be very intense, can easily swallow his co-stars alive if they prove to be inadequate and incompetent in their acting skills. But Derrick manages to rise to the occasion and holds his own in his challenging scenes with Dennis.

Director Dominic Zapata praises Derrick for his dedication in his craft as an actor. “Pati sa action scenes and stunts niya, ayaw niyang magpa-double, like noong ibitin siyang patiwarik habang tino-torture siya ni Joko Diaz. He insisted he himself would do it.”

“I did it myself kasi gusto kong ako mismo, maramdaman ko yung bigat ng eksena at makita ang tamang reactions sa mukha ko, sa katawan ko,” says Derrick. “Kasi kung may dobol ka nga, tapos pumalpak naman, di sa akin pa rin magre-refelct yun. So I might as well do it myself. Mahirap talaga yung eksena but it’s very fulfilling for me na nagawa ko yun kahit after the scene, pulang-pula na raw ang mukha at buong katawan ko.”

Starting this week, you will see Derrick’s slow transformation to become a Mulawin or taong ibon himself. “The moment that I fully transform into a bird man is a truly glorious one. Napakaganda ng pagkakagawa sa eksena and I’m really proud of it kaya abangan nyo ang paglipad ni Almiro.”
