Do you Juana Change too?
FixerThe woman behind Juana Change is actress Mae Paner, known for her work in theatre and in TV commercials. We decided to get to know the colourful actress beyond the wigs and the fun costumes, get her thoughts on politics, and get some scoop on her upcoming show, "365 Days to Change." First of all, who is Mae Paner? I'm a heavyweight at 260.5 lbs as of today! I'm a TV commercial director, the actress in the Boysen Paint Ad, and president of a post-production house. I can cook the best sinigang of any kind! I'm also in a wholesome but complicated relationship. The inevitable question: How did you come up with Juana Change? Out of our desperate attempt to get our countrymen to wake up to the harsh realities of our country. My dear director friend Sockie (Fernandez) suggested I play the role para walang bayad and put the videos on YouTube para libre. The scripts are written by Rody Vera and other writers. Is Juana Change simply a character you play, or do you really share her sentiments and opinions? Juana could not have done it with such conviction if Mae believed otherwise! Which issues in our country really, really make you mad? It has to be injustice and corruption, with special mention of GMA and her cohorts! What can you say about our politicians positioning themselves as the Philippines' Barack Obama? Ang kakakapal nila! The temerity to think they can make us believe they're the future Obamas of the Philippines!
