The Philippines’ ‘King of Talk’ Boy Abunda interviews award-winning actresses about their craft in the second season of Who Are You When No One’s Watching.
Who Are You When No One’s Watching is a podcast where Boy Abunda holds more intimate, relaxed, and insightful conversations with his guests.
Now on its second season, Boy Abunda focuses on award-winning actresses and their craft. According to Boy Abunda, this season was inspired by The Dick Cavett Show. But instead of focusing on celebrities, Abunda opted to dive deep into the craft of acting.
“I want to pay tribute to actors and their craft. Their film, television, and stage performances are not nearly enough to show the passion, energy, and hard work that they invest in every project. I want to honor their journeys behind each performance. Knowing more about their processes, I think, paints a better picture of them as artists,” said Boy Abunda, who is also known as Tito Boy.
“Working with and interviewing them all these years, actors deserve to showcase more of that. It rounds them out, not just as people with fascinating, extraordinary jobs, but also as real people who turn in the grit and commitment in what they do,” the veteran talk show host continued.
Season two’s line-up consists of 8 actresses. They are Janine Gutierrez, Angelica Panganiban, Eugene Domingo, Dimples Romana, Iza Calzado, Sunshine Dizon, Julia Barretto, and Cherie Gil. The conversations covered their craft, techniques, and journey in the entertainment industry.
Tito Boy kicked off season 2 with an interview with Janine Gutierrez. In this episode, we get to know Janine’s process in her craft. She also opens up about how she feels to be born to a family of talented performers.
When asked what he hopes for the listeners to take away from the series, he said that he wanted to develop the appreciation of the actors.
“I want listeners – whether you’re a fan of our guests, a fellow artist, or someone who just chanced upon our episodes online – to realize that there are more to actors than what we see, hear, or read about them. And that acting is such a universal practice, not limited to the screen and stage,” said Tito Boy.
“Also, these conversations are about passion. These are the actresses’ love stories with their craft. And there’s nothing more relatable than a good love story,” he continued.
Who Are You When No One’s Watching is created with Podcast Network Asia, the biggest podcast network in Southeast Asia.
