charice pempengco needs acting and english speaking lessons, FAST!
we like charice and we applaud her success. charice has gone to places where many pinoys have not been to. there is no question she is one of the best, a rising star in singing, but we can’t say the same about her acting and her speech.
charice is appearing in glee, one of america’s top rated tv shows. she is also making a hollywood movie. just looking at this clip from glee, she obviously needs to take acting and speech lessons.
she is bland in her acting, emotionless and she can’t seem to register emotions on her face. she looks too stiff, unable to get into acting. she looks and sounds like she is just reading off a dummy board, not acting. she is unable to register any emotion on her face, a key requirement in acting in front of a camera. the poor acting is just very obvious here that the director and editor decided to cut away from charice and show reaction shots of the other cast members instead.
her english speaking is also very bad here. it is actually using pinoy english speaking, accent and diction made by pinoys who do not speak english often. that is not bad when spoken in the philippines and among pinoys but she is appearing in an AMERICAN tv show with an american audience. her primary market as a singer is the US market, she needs to adapt to the ways of the US market and americans.
it is a fact that for one to be understood by americans quickly and easily, it is best to speak in the same accent and diction that they use. this is not only true in the US but also true in all countries. if you go to hong kong or singapore, it is better for you to speak in the way they speak english to be understood better and faster by them. same thing in america.
charice has gained a very good measure of success in the american market and no doubt she will conquer even more. she can certainly afford to hire an acting and speech coach to help her on these two things, the faster she gets help on these, the faster she will conquer america.
charice has actually improved significantly since she started appearing in the US. she has a little bit of an american accent now, able to better understand questions and able to give acceptable answers. but this improvement is not enough. she needs to to exponentially improve even more.
