David Archuleta @DavidArchie Last week of Nandito Ako! Hope you all enjoy it!

Posted by djafan on Sunday, March 18, 2012

Team #DA2014 is putting together a video to highlight the incredible size and diversity of David’s fan base and will be using it to launch the DA 2014 campaign on Friday, March 23rd.  DA 2014 is a new campaign that is being created to unite ALL David fans around the world together over the next 2 years around one idea:

WE WILL BE HERE

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

Original Post edited by Angelica

Anyone who doubts that forces greater than this world guide David’s destiny should consider this: what would the past 2 months have been like without this mini-series? On the heels of his mission announcement, he arrived in the Philippines in mid-January, setting off a daily avalanche of updates, mall appearances, photo shoots, interviews, and performances. Once rehearsal got under way, cue a plethora of pics and tweets from David, Kari, the cast, MyDearWriter and director, Mac Alejandre. I don’t think Nandito Ako was a coincidence that serendipitously came together at just the right time. I believe Somebody up there knew, not only that David needed this experience, but his fans needed the distraction during the run up to his mission departure. I believe Somebody prompted the events that unfolded and that we are the recipients of a multitude of tender mercies for standing by this young man these past four years.

Relates Perci Intalan, TV5’s, Creative and Entertainment head, “It started back in August 2011 over a casual conversation with Sony Music Philippines’ head honcho Narciso Chan, following David’s sold out concert in Manila. It was just an idea—a proposal out of the ordinary—but I told Ciso, ‘I’m serious’ if you are’,” Intalan recalled. “Before we knew it, we found ourselves negotiating with David’s lawyers in New York, Los Angeles, Singapore and Hong Kong; and by December, we were told he had accepted our offer.”

The Manila Times

Asked how much TV5 was paying David, Perci was mum, saying, “Mahal but it’s worth it.”

Fearing that David would be mobbed during the mostly outdoor shoot, TV5 offered to assign a few bodyguards to him but David declined.

“He arrived with only one companion,” added Perci. “Walang entourage.”

After the shoot, David said that he wouldn’t be doing any other showbiz-related projects since he would buckle down to his mission to serve God.

“I made the promise even before I decided to come to the Philippines,” assured David.

The Philippine Star

“He arrived with only one companion,” is not precisely accurate. Somebody else was with him. Somebody he made a promise to and when David gives his word, he keeps it. He’ll be back. He has other promises to keep.

Salamat po, Lord, for tender mercies and the promise of happy endings and new beginnings. Meanwhile, on with the show!

Nandito Ako and the Audaciousness of David Archuleta

Posted by MT on Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Author: MT

When David accepted the offer to do a mini-series in the Philippines, I think it was one of the best moves he ever made. Not just because I have enjoyed this mini-series more than I could have ever imagined, but for David himself. This project gave him the opportunity to stretch himself, and he didn’t waste it. In Nandito Ako, he was asked to portray a character that is similar to him in some ways but very different in others. And he did it. He gave a performance convincing enough that the line between David Archuleta and Josh Bradley began to blur. That is truly an amazing feat for a novice actor.

David had no real acting experience to speak of when he began this project and only one day of acting classes before arriving in the Philippines. Once he got there, he had to jump right in and begin working while getting an on the job crash course in acting. I can’t begin to imagine how difficult it was for him, and how daunting. He was expected to reply to other actors’ lines, with the proper emotion, while they were speaking another language. Normally, there is a two-way conversation. One actor shoots his or her lines and the other responds to what they are saying. But, David didn’t have the luxury of understanding the other half of his conversations. He could only go by what he was told others were saying and react to the emotion they portrayed. On top of that, he must have had to memorize the last few words of the other actors’ lines so he would know when to come in with his. Even a veteran actor would find that very challenging.  For someone who’s never acted in a drama of any kind before to be able to do it, and do it well, is quite an accomplishment.

In addition to the language barrier, David himself admitted that he has gone way outside of his comfort zone to do the scenes in this production since he’s not one who usually shows extreme emotion in public. And that’s exactly what the scenes called for. We have seen him angry, defensive, pleading, fighting, crying, and even a little sassy and snarky. And we’ve seen him do romantic scenes.

Most of us don’t stop to think that the two involved are not alone and there is probably no romantic song playing in the background while he does the scene. Instead, there are lights, microphones, cameras, cables lying on the ground, a whole crew watching, and a director critiquing his every move. This shy young man is expected to do a romantic scene with an entourage watching, possibly having to do it over and over until the director gets the shot he wants.

And yet, he was wonderful! No one could have asked for more. If David can pull this off under these difficult circumstances, I think he has great potential for future acting projects if he decides that’s what he wants to do. Is he an award-winning actor? No, not yet.  But with some lessons and a little more experience, who knows?

I’ve always said that there is no end to what David is capable of in regards to artistic talent but I was usually referring to music. Since watching Nandito Ako, I have revised that opinion. I now sincerely believe that David can do anything he sets his mind to.

It’s staggering to watch him learn and adapt so quickly, with only three weeks from the beginning to the end of this project. And I haven’t even begun to talk about how in the midst of it all, he was doing mall appearances, interviews, performances, dealing with new contract negotiations for the Bench endorsement and the album, photo shoots, commercials, music videos, and recording! How did he not go insane from the pace of it all?

Benchtm

To say that what he accomplished in the Philippines in just one month is amazing just isn’t enough. And he’s only twenty one years old! Can you even imagine what the future might hold?

David Archuleta is Josh Bradley (almost)

Posted by bebereader on Friday, March 9, 2012

credit JoAnn Banaga – from singing, to drama, to action…Falling for Josh Bradley

Fifteen episodes down and ten to go. We are now past the midpoint of the “Nandito Ako” miniseries. We’ve seen David stretch and grow right before our eyes as he takes on new challenges way out of his comfort zone in his newest endeavor.  The man’s got acting chops; he’s a natural down to his comedic timing. Who woulda thought? *Raises hand* Me! With an expressive face like his and a deep, introspective nature, he has all the attributes necessary to succeed in acting.

The story seems appropriate for someone like David who is family-oriented. It revolves around three main characters who come together from different backgrounds. Anya is raised by a loving single parent but lives an impoverished life. Holly, on the other hand, has all the riches anyone could want except that of her mother’s love. Josh has a successful career but is haunted by the memory of a fire where he allegedly lost his Mother. And three are caught in a love triangle that has me hooked.

Like a good novel that I can’t put down, the characters are captivating and have grown on me. I don’t want this fast-moving story to end. I hope to see some heart-wrenching scenes between Josh and his Mom when they find each other. And I hope his plans aren’t destroyed by his vicious uncle. I love how Josh talks about his parents, “When my Mom & Dad fell in love, it was…magical, like in fairy tales. Do you believe in magic, Anya?” David’s, I mean Josh’s  flirty “You’re looking at me.“ sassy line he spoke on the bus to Anya is now a classic!  Josh is as almost as irresistible as David Archuleta. Almost. 😉

I wonder if Aladdin will be the one to put the pieces of the puzzle together since he saw Josh’s watch strap?

In any case, MyDearWriter’s latest tweet has me **spazzing** for more Nandito Ako:

@MyDearWriter
LOL! All the things you’ve seen so far are nothing compared to the ultimate Romantic Bradley in action.

Yikes!

Dear DA From Bluesky

Posted by djafan on Monday, March 5, 2012

“I said he’s kind of like me. No two people are the same, and Josh is not me. He’s Josh Bradley.”

(Caveat: I am using this statement merely as an example on its own, with no reference to or implication concerning the words that may have prompted it.  ^_^)

Dear DA, Welcome to stardom:

You have to deal with people who care about you in varying degrees wondering who you are, discussing your motives, your dreams, your decisions, your future. Now you have cute Josh Bradley to cope with! THAT is a testimony to your talent. When we see you as Josh (or Josh as you?), you know that you have done a good job, that you succeeded in your effort to communicate Josh Bradley to us and bring the story alive. Thank you so much for sharing your talent. I agree with Holly: You are amazing. (She got to say it for all of us. ^_^)

About the downside: well….. I guess it is no different from family: I worry, guess, suppose and project with those I love. And it doesn’t change a thing. They just go ahead and live their lives without checking with me first to see how much better my ideas are. How grateful I am for that!

As for you (and Josh… and all the DA’s I may have concocted in my own brain…) I think you were born with and have continued to develop a great sense of self, which only you can define. I am even more grateful for this! It means I will continue to be surprised with you just as I am with my own family. You just have a really big family to contend with. Thank you for loving us and letting us love you – no matter how imperfectly.

And I will say that I am more impressed each day with your efforts and also those of many of the other actors involved. For me, it would seem a bit like doing a movie voice-over (like Lion King) to have to respond and interact with a language not your own. Thank you so much for taking this on and trying your wings. May you find them ever lifted by the strength of the power that holds you up and carries you onward.
