Dennis Trillo to star in new soap-A A +A
Tuesday, September 2, 2014
AFTER the success of "My Husband's Lover," actor Dennis Trillo returns on television via the newest primetime drama series "Hiram na Alaala".
In a recent interview, with the 33-year-old actor said that after six months of spending time with his friends and family, doing an independent movie and not having any regular show on television, he is ready to take on a new challenge.
He said he is happy with the pace of his career and the projects given to him by GMA-7, as he knows his last show with Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez left a big, positive mark on the viewers.
"Maganda din na may ganun kahabang interval para yung viewers hindi din magsawa sa akin. Mas gusto ko na mas mahabang length ng bawat show ko kesa sa sunod sunod pero pare-pareho lang," he said.
The actor said that he is ready to take on a new challenge and thankful that "Hiram na Alaala" is different from "My Husband's Lover". He said the audience can expect a different version of him.
He is also positive that people will embrace the story.
"Yung fear (na baka hindi ganun kainit yung pagtanggap) medyo nawala na yun kasi tanggap naman namin na hindi mapapantayan, hindi na namin mahihigitan pa yun [My Husband's Lover], kasi phenomenal show na yun. Pero of course mas may conscious effort kami na ayusin ito kasi may tumatak na dati," he said.
Dennis also reiterated the importance of reinventing oneself, especially in the show business.
"The fact na ibang iba yung character ko dito, enough na yun para mag-isip ako ng bagong maio-offer ko sa manonood. Kailangan kong ibahin para hindi din siya pareho sa past projects ko and hindi naman disappointing sa audience ang bawat labas ko," he said.
Aside from his performance, the show is a new challenge for Trillo as he is paired for the first time with "StarStruck" alumna Kris Bernal.
"Nakakatuwa na naisip ng GMA na maging new on-screen partners kami kasi refreshing siya dahil bago sa television. Gusto ko nag-experiment yung network to give something new to the viewers," he said.
"I-expect ng viewers na dito, walang masasayang na eksena, lahat worth remembering. Walang tapon na eksena and lahat worth remembering," he added.
Meanwhile, the actor shared that he plans to study film and cinematography. He hopes that one day, he would be able to create his own movies.
"Uunti-untiin ko. Hindi naman pwedeng direktor ka agad and marami pa akong dapat pag-aralan like script writing and cinematography. Kailangan din ma-earn ko yung respect and trust ng mga kasama ko sa trabaho," he said.
He said that he wants to reinvent himself as actor.
"Ako bilang tao, bilang artista, hindi ka pwedeng makuntento ka na lang. It's either umaakyat ka or bumababa, hindi pwede steady ka lang. Kailangan mag re-invent ka lagi sa sarili mo or sa mga ginagawa mo."
When asked if in the future he will focus on creating programs or movies rather than starring on them, Trillo said he has a long way to go as an actor.
"Siguro matagal pa ako dito. Kasi hindi lang kasi ito tungkol sa pera. Kahit nakaipon na ako, hindi ko parin nararamdaman ng fulfilment talaga. Tuloy tuloy parin ako. Hanggat andoon yung passion, gagawin ko ito," he said.
"Hiram na Alaala" premiers this month on GMA-7. (Sunnex)
