David Archuleta ~ I Am Here
Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, January 18, 2012
Do you dare step away from your computer to do something menial like oh…eat, sleep or pay a bill without feeling that you might miss something? Do you keep refreshing every minute so as not to miss a tweet? Do you feel compelled to stay in constant touch with what David is doing in The Philippines? I think it’s safe to say that we are drowning in news but that is not a complaint. He is embracing acting, the newest endeavor in his life. I’m not at all surprised that he’s loving it. From the beginning we knew that he had a natural acting ability. It was only a matter of time before it could happen. I’m amazed and beyond thrilled at how relaxed he is.
So relaxed that director Mac Alejandre had this to say about him:
“David is such a delight to work with. He knows what’s expected of him. And he’s a perfectionist. Siya mismo ang gustong umulit ng eksena [He offers to do a scene over] if he feels he can do more. If only he could stay here longer, it would be great to do a movie with him. For a first-time actor, he’s a natural.”
I remember several months ago when I read the first rumblings on Twitter about David doing a miniseries in The Philippines. For the most part, the tweets from fans there were negative. Overjoyed at the prospect of having David come there again but not so much for a soap opera type miniseries. Perhaps soaps aren’t the most revered type of TV fare but why do I know that this one will be different? Maybe because I know that David only gets involved in things with positive messages. We don’t know the entire plot of “Nandito Ako“, but I have every faith that we won’t be disappointed
We are blessed with a treasure trove of memorable projects before his mission: an English version of “Nandito Ako” called “Forever With You”, a rumored Valentine concert in Singapore and a five-week TV series including a concert scene to warm our hearts. Add to this, an appearance on Saturday on a TV show called “Will Time Big Time”.
The U.S. entertainment industry is clearly missing out on a gem of an entertainer, so versatile that everything he takes on turns out to be ridiculously amazing. He’s like the best guarded secret that will one day be impossible to ignore.
