Hollywood Acting Coach Ivana Chubbuck Loves Coming Back to ‘Pinas

She has been in and out of the country since 2014 and has been a regular every two years!

Welcome back renowned Hollywood acting coach, Ms. Ivana Chubbuck and we just love always having you here in Manila, your warm second home in this part of the globe.

Ms Ivana will be holding her exclusive two-­day workshop for actors of Star Magic and ABS­CBN actors on October 6 & 7  at the Dolphy Theater. 

She is best known for being an acting coach to Academy Award Winners and Nominees such as Gal Gadot, Halle Berry, Jared Leto, Sylvester Stallone, Brad Pitt, Jim Carrey, Charlize Theron, Beyonce, Jessica Biel, Eva Mendez and David Ayer, who happens to be the director of the blockbuster, hit Suicide Squad.

After visiting for the first time in 2014 to introduce her famous Chubbuck Acting Technique, then validating the approach in her 2016 visit, this time, Star Magic Artist Training Head Rahyan Carlos explains that Ivana’s visit would center on the strengthening of her brand of acting that would enable the actors to #DiscoverYourPower.

It was a great feeling seeing Ms, Ivana again after two years.

During her fun and info-filled press conference, she stressed the need for learning always.
Having been a sought after acting coach for the past 30 years, Ms, Ivana never stops learning and even acquires knowledge from her students.

"Don't ever stop to learn and search for more knowledge and information." 


According to Direk Rahyan, the only accredited Chubbuck Technique teacher in the Philippines, Ivana’s approach isn’t only limited for actors, but it can also cater to writers and directors as it teaches you how to win in life as well. 

Her technique is all about winning. When you get objective in your script or in your character, you make it personal. Then lalagyan mo ng subsititution in life yan. While you’re doing that process, you’re also facing your deep-seated issues in life, so ngayon nababago ka and it won’t only make you as a better actor but also as a better person,” he explained.

I had the chance to ask Ms. Ivana that if ever her interesting life story would be turned into a movie or film, who among her stalwarts would she choose to portray as herself?

"There had been offers for my story to be a documentary, but I would prefer not to. But if ever it happens, i would choose....Jack Nicholson! He would be the closest actor to be me!"

Wow, i never of that...but THE Mr. Nicholson is certainly not a bad choice. 

This year’s 3rd Masterclass would have 16 participants, majority of which are Star Magic artists, who were handpicked by the ABS-CBN executives. 

The diverse bunch is composed of up-and-coming actors, next lead stars, showbiz royalties, former childstars and a Star Magic public workshopper.

The Star magic artists include Mica Javier, Diego Loyzaga, Jameson Blake, Leila Alcasid, Myrtle Sarrosa, Vin Abrenica, Enzo Pineda, Joseph Marco, Nash Aguas and Elmo Magalona, as well as Star Magic workshopper Manuel Calilung. Also part of the masterclass are other Kapamilya stars Loren Burgos, Bela Padilla, Aljur Abrenica, Christian Bables and JC Santos.

Good luck guys! You will certainly learn a lot from Ms. Ivana as she would in you. After this Ivana Experience, your approach to acting will never be the same again...

And yes, Ms Ivana graced the recently held ABS CBN Grand Ball and she and Direk Rahyan smashed it on the red carpet! Look at how beautiful and amazing they both looked that night!
