Pageant expert Ameer Sanchez takes a crack at acting

Are you ready for Miss Becky?

She is one of the many interesting characters featured in the new online Boys Love series dubbed “My Day The Series.”

International pageant correspondent Ameer Sanchez takes the role of Miss Becky in the latest online BL series 'My Day The Series.'

And behind this loveable character is newbie Ameer Sanchez who ventures into acting for the first time.

“Miss Becky is a proud Bisaya. Masayahin, maasikaso, at mapagmahal na yaya ni Sir Ace Tan played by Iñaki Torres. Si Miss Becky ay tagapag-alaga kay Chukchuk at mga aso ni Ace Tan,” said Sanchez during an online chat recently.

Sanchez admitted he got nervous during the first day of shoot for the series. But he passed the test with flying colors with the support of cast and crew.

Many may not know that this bubbly guy is an accomplished personality.

“I am an international correspondent for Missosology, a world-renowned and leading pageant website that features and analyzes relevant male and female pageants. Mahilig kasi talaga ako sa pageants. I covered pageants here in the Philippines and abroad," he said.

On the side, Sanchez is also a licensed Certified Public Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner and worked as State Auditor. He is also a part time college professor. He finished his Master of Business Administration Top Executive Program at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila. “Age? Basta I am young at heart.”

In preparing for his role, Sanchez took several workshops that focus on voice and movements.

“I also did some research by watching movies with nannies tulad ng 'Mrs Doubtfire,'” he added.

The most challenging part of his role would be making people laugh. “Ang hirap pala magpatawa,” said Sanchez, who always projects a sunny disposition in life. “Matagal din ang make-up ko minsan umaabot ng 2 hours. Pero lahat ng iyun napapadali sa support ng team.”

Asked how he was convinced to accept the role, Sanchez said: “This is the first time na nagbihis babae ako. I am part of the production team as media relations, wardrobe and talent coordinator. Dahil nga po sa pandemic, nahirapan kami mag-add ng iba pang cast due to government protocols. Sina Direk Xion Lim at Carlo Morris Galang ang naka-discover at nag-convince na mag Miss Becky ako. Full support po sila at todo guide sila sa akin kaya na panatag din ang loob ko at napapayag ako.“

Beyond that, Sanchez accepted the role of Miss Becky because he and the nanny have similarities. “Siguro ang similarity namin ni Miss Becky in real life ay ang mga ugali namin na masayahin, maalaga or maasikaso at mapagmahal. I am also a dog lover!”

“My Day The Series" stars Inaki Torres and Miko Gallardo. The second episode will be uploaded on Aug. 15.
