SONNY PARSONS: ON AND OFF-CAM


Lights! Camera! Action!---
The scene--- Six men armed with pistols barged into the house of actor Sonny Parsons in suburban
Marikina city as the maid opened the gate. The intruders then tied everyone up. One of them poked a gun on Parsons’ head but it did not go off. The men took the money, jewelry, cellular phones and a video camera. They then entered the girl’s bedroom, tied them up and started undressing them. Parsons tricked the intruders into believing a police patrol would be having breakfast at his house, prompting the gunmen to panic and leave. The maid then untied herself and that of Parsons. Parsons then retrieved his .45-caliber pistol and chased the gunmen, who were boarding a passenger jeepney, a public transit vehicle they commandeered. A shootout occurred and the actor killed the two men. This exciting scene was not a part of a movie Parsons was shooting, but an action-filled true-to-life real drama that took place in 2002.
