Stage actor-director Vince Tañada, matapos ang indie film na Otso, magko-concentrate na lang sa theater

Vince-TanadaAFTER THE outstanding performance ni Vince Tañada in the indie films Otso and Esoterica with Direk Elwood Perez, titigil na ito sa pag-aartista. Gusto muna niyang mag-concentrate sa theater as an actor-director and scriptwriter. “I want to concentrate in something I know I am truly blessed. But to tell you honestly, I don’t want to act in film. I don’t have any intension of joining showbusiness. I’m just here to serve the art. This particular movie “Otso”, I wrote the script. I’m a lawyer by profession,” he said.

Magaling ang convincing power ni Direk Elwood kaya napapayag si Vince na mag-artista ito. “This is indie but when you talk to Elwood, iba siyang makipag-usap. Nang sinabi niya ‘yun parang mini-mainstream niya ako. Na alam ko sa sarili ko, hindi ako puwede. Well, hindi na naman ako bata… sabi ni Direk Elwood, let’s do it. Sino ba naman ang ayaw mag-artista lalo na kung mainstream ang pagkakakuwento sa ‘yo. Kapag iniisip ang lahat ng nangyari ito, it’s just part of the Filipino culture. But to tell you honestly, the product will speak for itself. ‘Yun lang naman ‘yun. I mean, this particular film is not made for the star. Ito’y ginawa dahil sa istorya. Hindi ko alam kay Lance Raymundo pala ‘yun.”

Si Senator Lorenzo Tañada ang grandfather ni Vince. All of his uncle and cousins are all lawyers. He’s father Antonio  Tañada is used to be a politician but now he’s retired. Naging Mayor of Dumaca, Quezon in the 80’s. Pangatlo si Vince sa apat na magkakapatid. Sa kahiligan ng kanyang mga magulang, nag-aral siya ng law at nakapasa sa board exam. Pero sa theater arts talaga ang passion ng magaling na actor/director.

Bukod sa pagiging stage actor/ director/ writer, singer din si Vince and at the same time painter din ito. Say ni Vince,“I started very young, I used to perform. I was part of a theater group in Entablado Pilipino. It was a long time ago in CCP. I played and then I joined singing group in La Salle, Kundirana, third year high school batch ‘91. I wrote the stage play “Bangkay” which won the Palanca.”

Ipinagmalaki pa ni Vince na fan siya ni Elwood Perez. Lahat ng pelikula nito ay pinanonood niya tuad ng Bilangin Ang Bituin Sa Langit at Ang Totoong Buhay ni Pacita M. ni Ms. Nora Aunor . “Kapag nakikita ko si Elwood, iba ang pakiramdam. Si Elwood Perez ‘yun, fan niya ako. Bata pa lang ako, mahilig na akong manood ng Filipino films. Kapag nanonood si Direk Elwood ng play ko, nai-excite ka pero hindi mo iniisip na magiging director mo siya. Kapag nagpi-play ako, ginagalingan ko kapag siya ay nandidiyan. Lagi siyang nanonood like ‘yung theater play kong “Bangkay”. It’s an experimental play, ilang beses niyang pinanood ‘yan. I directed the play, I wrote it and at the same time, actor. That particular play won at the Palanca 2011-2012. Du’n niya ako na-meet tapos lahat ng play ko pinanonood niya. I am successful and I can do a lot of things. A lots of director in the country now, cannot act. Maybe because of the physical, not the feature but the limitation. Ako, I act my own play, I did one frontal nudity in the play that Elwood never forgets,” pahayag ng actor.

Inamin ni Vince na malaki ang paghanga niya kay Ms. Nora Aunor. Willing itong magbalik-pelikula kung ang Superstar ang makakatrabaho niya. May isinusulat ngang istorya ang actor/director, tailor-made for Ate Guy. If ever, gusto ni Vince na idirek si La Aunor in the near future. Kung hindi man, makasama niya ito sa pelikula. Dream come true ito sa award-winning stage actor.
