Felix Roco talks about his limitations when it comes to going sexy for future projects.
A lot of people have noticed that Felix Roco has the makings of an action star with his role as Empress’ ultimate defender in Rosalka. But when told about his impressive portrayal in the said soap, the 21-year-old was quick to say that he never saw himself as an action star in the first place. “Talaga? Medyo nahirapan nga ako sa fight scenes kasi never ko naman na-imagine sarili ko na maging action star. Sa totoo lang wala rin naman akong peg dito sa showbiz. Actually yung kapatid kong si Dominic ang mas into that. But I am not closing my doors naman. Maganda din yung may bago akong natututunan as an actor,” he began.
As a matter of fact, he’s keeping himself fit not only as part of his training for the soap but also for an annual fashion show of a popular glossy magazine. “Kailangan ko mag-gym. Ayoko nga yung magkaroon ng muscles pero kailangan maging toned yung katawan ko para hindi naman nakakahiya dun sa mga manonood. Tsaka kailangan na rin para sa future endorsements (laughs). Hopefully, matuloy akong kuning image model ng isang sikat din naman na brand ng damit.”
When asked if he plans to compete with other sexy male stars nowadays, Felix revealed that he already had a butt exposure in his previous indie film entitled Sagrado Pamilya. “Nagpa-sexy na ako sa indie. I’ve been there and I don’t want to do it again. Nagkataon lang na part talaga siya ng story kaya ginawa ko. Pero hangga’t maaari ayoko sana kasi nga naniniwala naman ako na pwedeng maging makabuluhan ang isang film ng hindi kailangang maghubad yung artista. But of course I have nothing against those who do it. Opinyon ko lang naman yun. I am just not comfortable doing it. I am a very private person,” he stressed.
How about posing for a magazine with a bare torso? “Yun ok lang, yung naka-board shorts, ganon. Pero huwag naman trunks! Hindi ko ata kaya yun,” he finally stated with a laugh.
