Charo Santos has always been a hands-on boss who is too generous of her time and coaching. Charo believes that she is a teacher at heart and the sessions she does with the network’s stars, whether to discuss an attitude problem or simply to give an advice on their performances, is her way of mentoring them.
When calling out a talent for unprofessional behavior, Charo simply reminds the artist to respect the audience because as performers, they are loaded with responsibilities especially towards their viewers and loyal supporters.
Charo always views her artists as ordinary human beings and this helps her better understand their emotions such as fear and insecurities.
She even gives life lessons especially to those talents suffering from emotional pain, like that of a break up, and tells them to use the heartache as fuel to get better in life. She always urges others to continue moving forward and not let be swallowed up by bitterness.
Bea Alonzo recalls the moment she was called for a meeting with Charo. Artists knew that when they get invited at Charo’s office, which they jokingly brand as Principal’s Room, they may be up for a disciplinary action. Bea laughs at the memory of releasing her tension that time by eating too much tinola.
Fortunately, Charo asked Bea to come over not to reprimand her but to simply open up her suggestions for Bea’s character, Andeng in A Love to Last.
