RK, NA-DEPRESS DAHIL SA REJECTIONS

RK BAGATSING

boy abundaHindi naging madali para kay RK Bagatsing na pasukin ang show business kahit naunang sum-abak at sumikat ang nakatatandang kapatid na si Raymond Bagatsing. Madalas lamang daw noon na sumasama si RK sa kanyang kuya kapag nagte-taping ito. “When I was growing up I was watching my brother Raymond Bagatsing, doing his thing. Sumasama pa ako sa mga tap-ing niya. Pinakamatagal kong sama sa kanya, nagti-taping siya ng ‘Marinela,’ what’s funny was ang director was FM Reyes, ang mga bida no’n Camille Prats, Serena (Dalrymple) and Shaina (Magdayao). Now after ilang years I’m taping ‘Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit’ directed by FM Reyes and kasama ko si Shaina, parang in retrospect,” nakangiting pahayag ni RK.

Nagtatrabaho ang binata noon sa isang kompanya nang maisipang subukan na rin ang pagiging artista pero hindi ito naging madali. “My life before this was a lot of rejections. Second guess-ing, over thinking, I didn’t know what to do with my life. I was working in a company na I was earning pretty good. I was up for promotion but I wasn’t sure if that’s the job I want to do for the rest of my life. Parang naisip ko na, ‘Gusto ko pa bang pumasok sa office ng 7 (a.m.) to 4 (p.m.) or 9 to 5 for the rest of life?’ And then I was contemplating. Siguro po meron pa akong mga bagay na gustong gawin sa buhay or i-explore. So from having a secured job, secured pay every month, nag-move ako sa pagiging freelance in pursuing my acting career,” kwento niya.

“It wasn’t easy because hindi naman ako na parang pumasok lang. I started sa commercial and siguro sa thousands of auditions and castings, bilang pa rin sa daliri ko ‘yung nakuha ako. After that saka nag-start ‘yung TV, films. Doon ako nag-start mag-audition nang mag-audition, gano’n pa rin, ‘yung ratio nang makuha ka sa project. To be honest there’s a period in my life na na-depress ako. Every actor na tatanungin mo if they want to be in this business, they all want this one big break. You can’t help but think, ‘Para sa akin ba talaga ‘to?’ May mga times na madi-depress ka talaga. Mas lalong napu-fuel ‘yung insecurities mo sa sarili. Nadaanan ko lahat ‘yon,” dagdag ng aktor.

May ilang mga bagay namang natutunan si RK dahil sa mga napagdaanan niyang pagsubok noon. “You have to decide, you have to move on. Kahit gaano kasakit ‘yung rejections na nata-tanggap mo, hindi mo kailangang masaktan sa isang bagay na hindi mo nakuha. It’s really meant for someone else. It’s all about timing. For me, darating din ‘yung break na hinahanap mo. You really have to keep moving forward, don’t give up,” pagtatapos ng binate.
