Sa sinabi nya noon, ito masasabi ko...taking it positively...siguro gusto din nyang ipa-alam sa mga gumagawa ng istorya na kailangan ng character development si Liam...wala nga namang depth ang Liam...pinapasulpot sulpot lang nila ni wala sa flow ng story minsan...parang afterthought...tapos doon sa nabaril si Julio at kailangan ni Celyn ng karamay...ni hindi sinama sa script?
Marunong umarte si Xian...galing nga niya...eto o sabi ng mga directors ni Xian in his 2010 movie Two Funerals:

Xian Lim: A revelation in 'Two Funerals'

MANILA, Philippines - Suddenly, the TV and still cameras, not to mention tape recorders and microphones, were thrust to ABS-CBN Star Magic’s mainstay Xian Lim in Thursday night gala premiere of “Two Funerals” at the Main Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
Lim, who played Albert Arcangel in the tube remake last year of the 1980s classic “Katorse,” now plays Gerry in the Gil Portes’ entry to the Directors Showcase of the 6th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival.
After the screening, everyone was practically rooting for Lim as the next important star in the local biz.
“Naku, a star is born,” quipped veteran director Emmanuel H. Borlaza who predicted Xian as an awarded actor in the near future.
“Okey siyang umarte,” said Borlaza’s fellow filmmaker Mel Chionglo.
“Magaling siya sa mga eksena namin,” observed talent manager, show producer and actor Francis O. Villacorta who has a cameo role in the road film.
“Grabe ang impact niya sa audience,” commented prizewinning production designer Manny Morfe.
Lim just smiled as admirers and well-meaning people in the film industry gave him praises.
“Nagpapasalamat po ako kay Direk Gil for the offer to do a film with him,” intimated Lim, a management student of the University of the East.
Before the premiere showing, at the cocktails, Lim was waiting for his turn to get his food and drinks.
He was so shy and courteous moving about the floor as he made sure to ask permission and to bow his head when crossing some directions among guests and members of the press.
“Sorry po,” he said as he changed spot to answer a call from his cell phone.
“Sige po, Mom, punta na kayo rito sa Main Theater,” he softly instructed the other line we supposed was his mother.
Lim being the leading man in Portes film is a story in itself.
According to Portes, he even missed Lim by a second.
“Tapos na ang audition ko pero may nagsabi na meron pang isa so I asked him to do the part in the script. It was meant for him although I was also considering Dominic Roco for the role.
“Una kong nakita si Xian sa ‘Katorse’ and I said to myself, the boy would go places. ‘Yan nga siya. I’m proud of him,” said Gil.
“Ang galing niyang mag-react especially sa confrontation niya with Tessie Tomas. He’s a born actor,” said Morfe.
Borlaza noticed, though, that Lim has to be shot on top not only because he is tall but also, his jaw is prominent. “Pero hindi naman masyadong problema ‘yon sa angling.”
between the words of veteran director borlaza, filmmaker mel chionglo, the two funerals director gil portes praising xians acting and that of non-filmmaker ogie diaz bashing xians acting skills, which ones more credible... when od wins the pulitzer prize for criticism, ill consider his reviews...
Did you PM me on this. What I tried to say earlier was I did not get any message from you; last message I got was last May...at least the one on my Pex Inbox. Anyway, will alert Mommy Evs to your remittance. Thanks again.
