Cherry Pie Picache urges the younger generation of artists not to take for granted opportunities presented to them.
In a media conference on Marry Me, Marry You, she said it is incumbent for newer actors to hone their craft as their skills will determine how far they can go in the acting business.
“Old school ako so andami kong natutunan doon sa tinitingala ko the same way din yung inaadvice ko sa mga bata. I hope they don’t get offended. I hope they take it positively na marami kayong matututunan sa lahat na magiging katrabaho niyo.” she said.
“I hope you take it into heart seryosohin yung craft before anything else because that will entail your longevity in the industry,” she added.
As an “old school” actor, Picache considers the young actors as lucky since they get cast easily. However, when she was just starting out, Picache and her peers found it challenging to even be considered for projects.
“Halos lahat naman ng nakakatrabo ko kabataan ngayon. Please don’t take for granted because now you’re really blessed.
“Now it’s there, don’t take it for granted. Work hard for it, and earn your spot,” she said.
She also noted that adjusting to the growing industry is a learning experience which she enjoys.
“The whole industry is evolving. You have to adapt, adjust. Kailangan makasabay ka because every thing is adjusting.” she said.
Marry Me, Marry You is an upcoming Philippine drama romantic comedy television series starring Janine Gutierrez and Paulo Avelino.
