Vic Sotto Instills New Skills In Ryzza Mae Dizon Via ‘Vampire’

The lead stars in the sitcom "Vampire Ang Daddy Ko" are comedian Vic Sotto and his son, Oyo Sotto, but precocious child discovery Ryzza Mae Dizon stands to benefit big-time as well from the project.

In an interview with Bulletin Entertainment and select members of media on March 4, Vic disclosed that he wants to explore Ryzza's talents in a different venue using a discipline that she is not used to.

"Ito yung magme-memorize siya, hindi yung puro ad-ib lang. Dito, kailangan she has to follow the dialogue. Gusto kong maranasan niya yun, na may sinusundan na blocking. It's very malayo sa ginagawa niya sa (afternoon variety show) 'Eat Bulaga,"' Vic said.

The comedian shared that Ryzza was "asiwa" with the whole thing in the beginning but was able to adapt right away, the next day.

"Sa second taping day, komportable na. Makikita mo dun sa acting na ok na siya."

The story of "Vampire Ang Daddy Ko" revolves around a family that's headed by a semi-retired vampire played by Oyo. According to a release, Oyo's character, Vlad, has been making do with animal blood since he married a human, Sonya. It is his great love for Sonya that made him want to reform. Sonya, in turn, has promised to give him outstanding children that turned out to be Vad and Victorio.

Victorio is not a vampire and he has issues with his father. He knows his father is a vampire who, from time to time, still consorts with active vampires. Victorio also feels his father doesn't love him as much as he does Vad. Vlad continues to tempt Victorio with pig's blood, measures his cuspids to see if they've grown into fangs, and in his presence keeps on asking his wife Sonya if it's possible for them to have picked up the wrong baby in the hospital nursery.

Vic said they were initially worried that Ryzza might think there are real vampires on the set.

"Baka natatakot siya so kinakausap namin parati na 'Ito acting-acting lang, ha'

"Kaya tuloy ngayon, ang tingin niya sa buong paligid niya is shooting. Kaya kung may nakikita man siyang ano, ang sinasabi niya 'Ay, shooting lang 'yan!"' Vic said, chuckling.

The comedian fully believes in the child wonder's potentials. He said there are times when he'd just get mesmerized in watching her work the audience at the "Eat Bulaga" studio.

"Doon mo makikita kung gaano kalakas 'yung karisma ni Ryzza eh. Kahit na nasa back stage ako, pag nag-cha-chacha sila ng konti roon, glued na ako sa TV eh.

"Pinapanood ko siya at 'yung smile mo hindi nawawala. Pagka tumitira siya ng chacha dramatics---kahit anong gawin niya---nakakatuwang panoorin. Kahit na ako araw-araw ko siya kasama, pagka lumalabas na siya sa TV, talo-talo na, tigil na lahat ng ginagawa," Vic said.

"Ang Vampire Kong Daddy" will start airing March 9 right after "Kap's Amazing Stories."
