slidegossip.com - Menjalani kesibukan di dunia entertainment sambil berbisnis memang tak ada salahnya, seperti yang dilakukan oleh Mark Miranda, model dan aktor asal Filipina. Kepada slidegossip.com, pemilik usaha t-shirt printing dan penyuka gym ini menceritakan pahit manisnya dunia entertainment yang sudah ia rasakan.
"Big, scary and utterly disgusting thing, thats the entertainment industry, yet I’m still so much in love with it. I’m sure many of you could say the same thing. One of the things that made me so interested in it was perhaps my own insecurity. Being involved in performing in front of other people for years, I’ve already grown an innate love for the performing arts. I love the idea of creating your own character and 'transforming' yourself into someone else. I guess that’s one of the main reasons people love the entertainment industry so much–it’s a means of escaping everyday life with a quick trip to the minds of other. And, if you’re actually involved in it, you love the idea of portraying and being different people," ungkapnya.
Mark Miranda juga menceritakan beberapa pengalamannya di dunia entertainment yang dijalaninya di Filipina.
"Performing in front of a big audience has been bery difficult but was already surpassed since I joined a theater group here in the Philippines. I couldnt even imagine myself acting and making money out from it while making sure that i can deliver every lines in detail and with full emotion. I am a proud theater actor and that gave me a break and made me realize that entertainment industry is a fulfilling career. Seeing the smiles from the crowd, every applause and most of especially the praises and compliments are never really any money's worth," paparnya.
