What’s wrong with being second choice? Nothingm says the actor who replaces Piolo in the ‘Kimidora’ prequel.
Guess who Kimmy’s new leading man is?
Excited to know who is this mystery man? Well, check out the story below!
In the latest celebrity update, the new leading man of Kimmy is none other than Sam Milby. For Sam, there is nothing at all to be a second choice especially if you’re replacing someone like Piolo Pascual.
“This is a privilege. Siguro naman depende kung sino ang nagging kapalit. But coming from (Piolo, it) is a privilege. If (it was) someone different, ayoko na magbanggit ng names, (ibang usapan na). Siyempre it worked out for me since matatapos na ‘yung “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala”. ‘Yung movie na gagawin ko with Anne Curtis and Cristine Reyes, si Direk Chris Martinez din. And siyempre ‘yung management ko, Spring Films din which is Piolo’s production studio,” Sam, who took Piolo’s place in the “Kimmy Dora” prequel, said.
In fact, the singer-actor was referring to his other comedy movie in the works of Chris Martinez’s ‘The Gifted’ under Viva Films, which happens he will be reunited with his former girlfriend Anne Curtis, They were last seen in the romantic-comedy movie “Babe, I Love you” in year 2010.
Furthermore, Sam already sent away of any chances of getting awkward with Anne earlier this year.
“Okay naman kami. It’s been four years. Hindi naman kami friends na nag-uusap lagi, pero yes nag-uusap kami,” he clarified.
On the other hand, the Kapamilya actor explained acting in two comedy movies calls for a drastic change in acting style.
“It’ll be a big adjustment coming from such a heavy teleserye “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala” and going to all the comedy. Exciting naman. Siyempre kapag comedy magaan naman… a lot easier a lot more fun,” he explained.
Although Sam looks stiff on TV because he’s usually typecast in suplado and rich roles, he insists he has sense of humor too.
“Oo naman! Siguro ‘yun ang side na hindi pa nakikita ng mga tao. Andaming roles na nagawa ko na masungit, romantic. This is something different for me. Sana maipakita talaga ‘yung [funny] side of me,” he insisted.
However, Sam also said the he doesn’t use humor to attract girls like any other men do.
“Ako kasi most of my life ako ‘yung shy. Kapag kumportable ako sa mga tao [doon na lumalabas ‘yung humor],” he said
Meanwhile, The Kapamilya actor took a three-month leave from showbiz early last year to pursue his big “Hollywood dream.” And even if his efforts to audition haven’t obtained rewards yet, he said that he’s far from giving up.
“May balak talaga ko ituloy. Siyempre may agency pa rin dun na nagrerepresent sa’kin. And kung may time ako gusto ko pabalik-balik dun for pirate season. For the experience pa lang sobrang worth it na. Ying pirate season kasi nagsa-start ng mid-January to May. Ang pirate season sa States they don’t tell you mga bagong shows. What they do is they email you ‘yung script para sa bagong show the night before audition,” he explained.
Nevertheless, his Hollywood dream is also widely perceived to have taken a toll on Sam’s career in the Philippines. While he admitted that showbiz came easy for him, the “Kimmy Dora” star said he’s learning his lesson.
“You know I think it helped me a lot because ako ‘yung tipong hindi naman naghirap para pumasok sa showbiz. I entered PBB(Pinoy Big Brother), wala akong ginawa. And when I started thinking, ‘Ano nang gagawin ko?’”
On perception, Fil-Am actor said his career hinders made him a better person.
“It pushed me… ‘yung mga times na nahihirapan tayo those were times we try to push ourselves further and to improve. Ako happy ako. SIyempre I know I still need to do things I need to work on talaga, but I’m happy na ngayon marami akong improvements na ginagawa ko sa sarili ko and nagyayari sa career ko,’ he said.
