GMA Artist Center just launched a new show entitled ‘How Do You Feel?: Usapang Artista.’

Shown on GMA Artist Center’s YouTube channel and GMA Network’s Facebook page every ‪Saturday night at 8PM, it is produced by acting coach Ana Feleo and Artist Center talents Chynna Ortaleza, Benjamin Alves, and Mikoy Morales.

The show is a roundtable discussion where Kapuso actors exchange thoughts about acting and the entertainment industry including their approach towards their craft, forms of expression, innovative improvisations, and experiences in show business.

For the first episode last June 6, Artist Center senior actors Benjamin and Chynna were part of the roundtable discussion, with award-winning actor Gabby Eigenmann as special guest while up-and-coming artists Elle Villanueva, Sophia Senoron and Psalms David also joined the discussion. Ana Feleo facilitated the discussion.

In celebration of Pride Month this June, the next two episodes of the show will gather actors who have portrayed LGBTQ characters on screen: My Husband's Lover star Tom Rodriguez, The Rich Man's Daughter lead actresses Glaiza de Castro and Rhian Ramos, comedian Divine Tetay, and esteemed director and Fuccbois star Ricky Davao.

Facilitated by Chynna Ortaleza, who also played a lesbian character on The Rich Man's Daughter, the latest episode of ‘How Do You Feel?: Usapang Artista’ will surely be a colorful discussion as the guests talk about the actors' process to open people’s eyes to the beauty of their preparation and experiences.

The first part of this Pride Month special will air ‪on June 13 while the second part will air ‪on June 20, both ‪at 8PM, on GMA Artist Center's YouTube channel and GMA Network’s Facebook page.
