OUAT – Disney Memories

Once Upon A Time has a stellar cast who portray their roles very well. One thing that can be attributed to that is their strong love of fairy tales and Disney. Because they grew up loving these enchanting and magical stories, it has given them the edge to dig deep and portray their characters so well.

In this special feature by Disney D23, some cast members share their love of fairy tales and Disney.

Who’s Singing That?

Mig Macario
Another half Pinoy actor is making waves in the TV series scene in the US.
Fil-Canadian actor Mig Macario stars in three hit TV series in US, with recurring roles in currently running series’ “Fringe” and “Sanctuary.”
But, according to abs-cbnNEWS.com’s report, his biggest break came when he was signed up in ABC’s new hit show “Once Upon a Time,” which has been attracting a lot of attention recently. In this series, he takes on the role of the timid dwarf, Bashful.
“It’s all the different fairy tales that you’ve ever known but they’ve been cursed,” he tells ABS-CBN News. “It’s great in the sense that it’s a show that the whole family can watch, but really, it’s about hope.”
“Once Upon a Time,” which debuted in the US last November, is headlined by Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison. The series airs locally via Star World channel every Wednesday.
In a nutshell, the fairy tale drama series is a retelling of the classic “Snow White” conceptualized by two former writers of the hit “Lost.”
True blue Pinoy
Raised in Vancouver, Canada, Macario was born in Atimonan, Quezon and is the youngest of six children. Miguelito Macario Andaluz in real life, he was named after the Filipino revolutionary Macario Sakay.
Pursuing his destiny as actor in the States did not dilute his Pinoy identity.
“I’ve read up on Filipino history,” he says. “Although I was raised in Canada and grew up in North America, I still have really strong tries to being Filipino.”
He proudly adds, “Pinoy ang puso ‘ko.”
He even admitted that a good chunk of his acting prowess was influenced by Philippine showbiz industry.
“Somebody would come from the Philippines and they’d bring in Vilma Santos films, and I just remember, ‘Oh, this woman is making me so emotional,’” he recalls. “I think I’m a Vilmanian. That’s what they call it, I think.”
Despite being part of Hollywood, Macario still hopes to work with his favorite director, Brillante Mendoza.
“Brilliante Mendoza, if you’re listening or watching, I would love to work with you,” he says.
Calling out to the Cannes-winning director of “Kinatay,” he quipped, “Handang-handa na ako.”

What’s in a name?
Well since I’m rebranding myself professionally (possibly legally) and losing the Andaluz and “guelito” from my first name, there’s a lot to it. I never felt like an Andaluz and that’s the truth. I kept it because I felt obligated. When I found out that my middle name stood for Macario and only just recently was told that it was my great grandfather’s name, it only took 38 years to get that vital information about myself to be told to me, (thanks for letting me finally letting me know mom and dad). I always thought it was after Macario Sakay (see my early blogs about him) and I think it partly was because of him as well. I also found out recently that my birthday March 16 was the actual day the Philippines was allegedly discovered by Magellan. Although it had been many years that Chinese and other countries were trading with the people that would eventually be known as the Filipinos. Anyway, history listen over. I take the name Mig Macario because it’s a choice to start fresh, to begin my own legacy – a fresh history. I don’t think my parents know what they were getting into when they decided to use Macario as part of my name. Not that I’ll ever completely forget my past but like Macario Sakay – it’s a move towards independence through legal means. But I refuse to literally be executed like he did, but I know I will be definitely be figuratively executed from my family in a sense because I’m breaking certain social and cultural taboos (or something that my family may have made up). It’s my life and have the right to do so. So today – Miguelito Macario Andaluz begins to disappear (again executed if you like – happily by my own hands) while Mig Macario is born. New Year – New Name – New Life. It’s a good time

OUAT – Raphael Sbarge talks about Eco-Fatherhood

Besides being an actor that’s  very good at what he does, Raphael Sbarge can also add founder of Green Wish to his credentials. Raphael started Green Wish with a close friend, Ed Begley Jr.

In the interview below, Rapahel talks about his motivations for starting the program and how his children influenced him.

From Sesame Street to Green Wish: Raphael Sbarge Talks About Eco-Fatherhood

You have most likely seen or heard Raphael Sbarge somewhere.  He began his acting career at the tender age of 5 on Sesame Street.  He’s been in too many movies, television shows, and stage plays to mention, except to mention that he plays a double role in Once Upon a Time.  Or maybe you heard his voice on a number of video games.

We wanted to talk with Raphael about his nonprofit organization Green Wish that he started with Ed Begley, Jr.  It’s a grass-roots non-profit started in Los Angeles that aids local green organizations.  We heard it was inspired by his children, and continues to involve children as part of its education program.
