Jemina Sy

Jemina Sy has been a lawyer for years now but she has not forgotten her childhood dream of becoming an actress. (Dream ko rin ’yan!)

“Nu’ng bata kasi ako, sinabi ko sa father ko na gusto ko mag-artista. Sabi nya, ‘Tumigil ka anak, mag-aral ka.’ Pero kahit nu’ng nag-aaral ako, ’di naman basta-basta makakalimutan ’yung dream mo. Kahit nu’ng nasa law school na’ko, naiisip ko pa rin ’yon,” Jemina said. (Ako kasi iba iniisip ko nu’n, puro boys!)

She finally achieved her long-time wish last year when she became part of indie film “Bubog.” (Ay, baka papakainin ng bubog si ate, afraid!)

“I was invited by Direk Arlyn dela Cruz. May common friend kasi kami. Sabi naghahanap nga ng talents for the film so sinubukan ko.” (Kelan kaya ako makakatanggap ng tawag?!)

Her role is quite challenging, that of a drug pusher. (Ay, ako pang pusher lang ng cuticle!)

“Nag-workshop ako under Direk Arlyn. Tinuruan n’ya ko mag-throw ng lines, mag-acting. Pero siyempre nu’ng unang salang ko, sobra akong kinakabahan. Napapa-smile ako sa eksena, kasi smiling face naman talaga ako. Sasabihin ni Direk, ‘Cut! Bakit lagi kang naka-samile?!’”

Jemina felt pressured during the shoots as most of her scenes were with actor Baron Geisler who was later on asked to leave the movie because of his alleged misbehavior in one of the scenes. (Ayaw ng mga jumi-jingle sa pader!)

“Bubog” also stars Julio Diaz, Elizabeth Oropesa, Jackielou Blanco, Jak Roberto, and many others. It will be in theaters next month.

“Mga veteran actors and actresses ’yung mga kasama namin dito at napabilib talaga nila ako. ’Di madali ang umarte at maging artista pero ang gagaling nila.” (Sana sinama n’yo ko d’yan para lalong mas gumaling pa! chos!)

She hopes this is the beginning of many great things in her newfound career. She also wants to give TV a try. She dreams of either hosting a public service program or work with multi-awarded actor Coco Martin on a teleserye. (Tamang-tama, hanggang 2099 pa raw ang “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.” 2099?!!!!)

“Naku, kahit yayey lang ni Coco, kahit pakainin pa n’ya ako ng bubog, o sabihan n’ya ko na umapak ng bubog, okay lang, basta kasama ko s’ya ha!” said Jemina. (Art Dept, ilabas ang bubog, ready na si ate! Push!!!!)
