Dene Gomez: From Dr. Jose Rizal to Gerardo De Leon
How Dene prepared for his iconic roles from Dr. Jose Rizal to Gerardo DeLeon? (Philippines National Artist for Film).
by MJ Racadio
“Despite all this craziness and competitive nature that I have, what I value the most right now is peace of mind. A peaceful mind and a peaceful heart will always come first.”– Dene Gomez
Many young and upcoming actors, enter show business for the wrong reasons but there is one actor, who honed his skills, Dene Gomez, theater actor, and successful commercial model during the teenage years. As seen on T.V. “Ang Probinsyano” plays the character Ramon Gonzales, who is a family man and cannot pay his debt so the collateral in exchange for the daughter’s being kidnapped.
I have met Dene from veteran theater actor Bobby Martino. He’s friendly, smart, and respectful. Aside from being an actor, Gomez also a professional as an entrepreneur and athlete on the side. The Philippines’ new drama prince because of his high-caliber acting portrayal alongside Coco Martin, primetime drama king in the Philippines.
“Grew up in Pagsanjan, Laguna, “Despite all this craziness and competitive nature that I have, what I value the most right now is peace of mind. A peaceful mind and a peaceful heart will always come first.”
Dene has this to say about his acting mentor from both stage and TV who influenced him so much, Bobby Martino., “Whenever he is acting, the first word to leave his mouth, I always get chills. I want to have that magic one day.”
Dene also gives credit to everyone whom he encountered in life for contribution to his acting technique. According to Dene, “I am a combination of all people around me. Aside from emulating celebrities on TV and film, I also observe people on the streets and in normal situations.”
Acting is your dream? “Yes, recently. But looking back from when I started the year 2004, the answer is no. My motivation during those early years was just to get famous and get rich. It was only last July 2018 when I realized that I dig acting. It gives me tremendous happiness, regardless of medium, pays, or exposure. The mere art of portraying a role and moving at least 1 person in the audience is more than enough for my soul.“
Dene’s dream role is a low-key lead character with several layers of the back story underneath. “I always wanted to show strength with restraint. Just like the character of Ethan Hawke on the “Before” trilogy. Just marvelous.”
Gomez experience working on the set of ”Ang Probinsyano”, “Everyone is at the top of their game. It’s the highest rating show among all networks for the whole of 2019. Everyone is performing excellently: from the staff to the directors, to the stuntmen, and the actors. Thus, I keep telling myself whenever I’m on set, “Must adapt fast and be snappy”.”
His piece of advice in becoming an actor. “Thick skin. Assertiveness. Authenticity. Unlimited Patience with People’s Differences. And 10,000 hours of practice, pressured and culture-shocked.
Finally, he always makes sure getting enough sleep before taping day because once the camera rolls, everything becomes a blur with the production’s fast-paced operation.
ZOZIBINI TUNZI FROM SOUTH AFRICA CROWNED MISS UNIVERSE The special event trended worldwide on Twitter with millions of viewers across the globe tuning in to watch
Atlanta, Georgia (December 8, 2019) – Today, Zozibini Tunzi from South Africa was crowned the new Miss Universe at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. The three-hour special programming event aired live on FOX and exclusively in Spanish on Telemundo.
Zozibini Tunzi is a 26-year-old activist engaged in the fight against gender-based violence. She has been vocal in the #HeForShe campaign to change the narrative surrounding gender stereotypes. Tunzi holds a degree in public relations and is a proud advocate for natural beauty, encouraging women to love themselves the way they are.
“Growing up, girls who looked like me weren’t considered beautiful,” said Tunzi. “I am so proud to be the first woman of color from South Africa to win the Miss Universe title for my country, and I hope every girl sees this and knows she is beautiful – no matter her skin color.”
Tunzi was crowned in the new Miss Universe “Power of Unity” crown, which was crafted by international jeweler Mouawad and is worth $5 million.
Now in its 68th year, MISS UNIVERSE® featured delegates from 90 countries.

For the second consecutive year, the selection committee was made up entirely of women, including business leaders, digital influencers and former Miss Universe titleholders. For the first time, The CHI Lounge featured a roundtable discussion for Facebook Live about female empowerment, some of which was featured during the live broadcast.
The top five finalists were each asked a final question on a timely topic. The top three finalists (Miss Universe Mexico Sofía Aragón; Miss Universe South Africa Zozibini Tunzi and Miss Universe Puerto Rico Madison Anderson) each delivered a final statement regarding the most important thing we should teach young girls today prior to Tunzi winning the new Miss Universe Power of Unity Crown, crafted by Mouawad.

Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen will be bringing her ‘The Dedicated Tour’ to Manila on October 23 at the New Frontier Theater. Tickets will be on-sale starting August 31 via TicketNet.com.ph and at all TicketNet outlets nationwide. Presented by concert promoter Wilbros Live.
Fans can expect a night full of hits as Carly Rae Jepsen will be performing her chart-topping songs, including “Cut to the Feeling”, “Call Me Maybe”, “Party for One”, “I Really Like You”, “Boy Problems”, “Emotion”, “Run Away with Me” and many more.
After Carly Rae Jepsen released her critically acclaimed album E·MO·TION in 2015, it became “a modern touchstone for a new crop of pop-leaning artists and legacy acts,” as NPR noted, adding “the blast radius of E•MO•TION is expansive.” The album also inspired an abundance of memes — extending the cultural cachet that Jepsen earned from the ubiquity of her Grammy-nominated blockbuster hit “Call Me Maybe” (from her U.S debut album Kiss), which not only climbed to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries, sold over 20 million singles worldwide, and was certified Diamond in the U.S., but was referenced by everyone from former secretary-of-state Colin Powell to Cookie Monster.
Jepsen’s new album, Dedicated, retains the joyful, hook-filled feeling of its predecessor. But where E*MO*TION, which featured the platinum single “I Really Like You,” was an ’80s-influenced synth-pop classic that Rolling Stone called “a pop masterclass” and Stereogum called “indisputable, unfuckwithable pop genius,” Dedicated has a more ’70s-inspired feel at times (though the album defies categorization as a whole). At one point, Jepsen was sure she was making a disco opus. “The title was going to be ‘Disco Sweat,’” she says with a laugh. “I really bought into it.” But Jepsen had a change of heart thanks to her travels over the past two years, which included writing trips to the Swedish countryside (“It was spring and there were fields of flowers, homemade breads, and kittens running everywhere”) and a beach in Nicaragua, where she surfed and stayed in a cabana-like casita. Then there was an Eat Pray Love-esque solo vacation in Italy. “I had so many songs,” she says. “I needed some space to walk around, reflect, eat pasta, and get to know myself a bit.”
