Dennis Trillo happy with acting trophy-A A +A
Sunday, March 23, 2014
ACTOR Dennis Trillo said that his previous primetime series "My Husband's Lover," which he co-starred with Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez, revived his career in the entertainment business.
Last Friday, the 32-year-old actor received his first Best Actor trophy at the 5th Golden Screen TV Awards organized by the Entertainment Press Society for his portrayal of Eric Del Mundo, a gay man, in the series.
The actor said the trophy is special to him as it somehow validated his performance in the program.
"Bihira lang ako magkaroon ng awards sa performance ko sa TV. Mahalaga ito kasi ibinigay ito sa akin nung ginawa ko yung isa sa mga mahahalagang proyekto ko," he said.
Trillo added that because of "My Husband's Lover," people started taking notice of him again. Following the show's success, whole cast had travelled abroad and did a series of concerts for the Filipino community there.
"Nagpapasalamat ako kasi tinangkilik ng marami and at the same time bumalik yung interest ng tao sa akin at mas nagustuhan ako ulit," he said.
"Aaminin ko na maraming pinagdaanan 'yung career ko at isa siyang roller coaster ride, pero pagkatapos ng 'My Husband's Lover, parang nag-settle lahat. Naging mas maayos, mas maliwanag 'yung future ko and yung gusto kong puntahan sa career ko," he said.
Although there's added pressure on him, the actor is certain his mother network GMA-7 and manager Popoy Caritativo will help him along the way.
"Hindi mawawala yun kasi yung series ay napaka phenomenal na proyekto kaya ang hirap gumawa ng isa pang project na pantayan yun or lagpasan. Sobrang laking pasasalamat ko talaga at napasama ako doon."
Trillo also shared his Best Actor award to co-star Rodriguez, who was also nominated in the top acting category. He said his success is the success of the whole cast.
"Walang rivalry (sa amin ni Tom). Kung sinong manalo sa amin dalawa, okay lang. Hindi ko magagawa yung show ng mag-isa and hindi siguro ako magiging kapanipaniwala na bading kung hindi si Tom yung partner ko. Malaki yung part din niya yung performance ko," he said.
The actor will be featured next in Mike Tuviera's "The Janitor," an independent film slated to be released in July at the Cinemalaya Film Festival. He is also doing two movies under Regal Films.
When asked if there's a special sometime who inspires him to work more, Dennis simply smiled and reiterated that he is single.
"Mas effective sa akin yung single. Try ko munang patagalin ito at baka sakaling mas maraming dumating na shows. Mas masaya ako," he ended. (Sunnex)
