Rogue Magazine’s March 2008 issue has a great feature on Ronnie Lazaro, one of the finest actors working in Philippine cinema today. Written by Lourd de Veyra with his typical mix of insight and humour, it is one of the rare articles that looks at the life and work of a local actor in serious detail. There are but few contemporary actors in the Philippines for whom this treatment seems appropriate. Ronnie, having played significant if not starring roles in Peque Gallaga’s Oro, Plata Mata (1982), Tikoy Aguiluz’s Boatman (1984), Raymond Red’s Anino (2000), and Lav Diaz’s Heremias (2006), is surely one of them.

Thankfully Rogue puts back issues online at issuu.com. The Ronnie Lazaro article, which features some beautiful photographs, can be read: here
