Bimby Aquino Yap: Makings of a child superstar

Bimby Aquino Yap’s colleagues in “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin” only have positive words on the child star’s performance in what is his second movie to date.


Director Wenn Deramas seemed to have been enchanted by Bimby’s charisma – and the feeling is apparently mutual.


“’Yung bata kasi, katulad ng kanyang ina, charming,” he says at the recent “Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin” press conference, referring to Bimby’s mother, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino. “Tapos hindi ko rin alam kung anong magneto meron ako at gustong-gusto niya ‘ko. ‘Pag dumarating ako, kumakandong… Nagagamit ko ‘yong paraan para mapasunod siya. Sumusunod naman po nang husto…”


Since he has not seen Bimby’s first big screen outing, “My Little Bossings,” Direk Wenn obtains additional feedback from those who have – and it has been likewise positive.


“‘Pag tinatanong ko, ‘Okay ba? Okay ba?’ Sabi nila ang laki daw ng improvement ng bata,” he adds.

Meanwhile, “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin” lead star Vice Ganda, one of Kris’ closest friends, says, “Okay lang naman si Bimby. Sakto lang. Tamang-tama lang sa hinihiling. Hindi OA, hindi rin naman waley.”

Apart from these two, his co-stars like Alex Gonzaga and Tom Rodriguez got to bond with Bimby while filming and even rehearsed lines with him, as seen on Kris’ previous Instagram post.


In “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin,” Benjie Santos VIII (Vice) gets an unlikely mission: Be a personal bodyguard of a boy (Bimby), who holds the key to dismantling the bomb which villain Janjaranjan (Tom) threatens to launch.


“The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin” also stars Richard Yap, Kean Cipriano, Ricky Rivero, DJ Durano, Jojit Lorenzo, Malou de Guzman, Al Tantay, and Eddie Garcia.

Directed by Wenn Deramas, “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin” is an entry to the 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival and is a co-production between Star Cinema and Viva Films.
