Enchong Dee reveals why he is ready to do sexier roles next year


110611-enchong_main.jpgAfter showing his sexier side with his role as Luis Fernando Dela Vega in the local adaptation of Mexican telenovela Maria la Del Barrio, Enchong Dee admitted that he is now ready for more mature roles.

Gusto ko po. May naisip nga ako na gusto akong i-suggest sa kanila na idea na kung papano ako mag-ve-venture into sexy roles kaya lang bibigyan pa nila ako ng tamang pagkakataon para pumasok dun. Kasi hanggang kalian lang ba tayo magiging bata ‘di ba? Hanggang kalian ba tayo puwede maghubad ng ganito? Sayang naman,” he shared.

Enchong said that he would have no problem doing a sexy role especially if the script is really good. “Kung magiging box office naman yung project, reading-ready ako. Kasi pangarap ko rin naman yung magkaroon ng box office hit movie. Hindi ba yung No Other Woman broke the record ng You Changed My Life? So kung bibigyan ako ng pagkakataon tapos alam ko namang ganun kaganda yung project, oo naman,” he added.

The 22-year-old actor-athlete also shared his views on the recent emergence of independent films. “Yung mga bagong filmmakers natin na sobrang passionate, meron silang drive so I want to work with them. Siyempre yung mga ganung klaseng pelikula yung napapansin sa international [scene]. Siyempre gusto natin yung ganun, yung kakaibang experience din yun,” he said.

Enchong admitted that if given the chance, he would even consider doing offbeat roles that veer away from his matinee idol image. “Oo naman kasi challenge siya. Tapos pangalawa, meron talaga tayong mga parte ng society na hindi sila na-i-include sa mainstream films kasi nga katulad nun, meron tayong mga autism, merong mga disorders. Yun yung kailangan natin i-tackle para naman sa iba nating mga kapwa Filipino maintindihan nila. Kung bibigyan ako ng project na ganun ng management then why not? Pinagkakatiwalaan ako ng management and I think it’s a right thing for me na pagkatiwalaan ko rin sila,” he admitted.

Although he has always maintained a wholesome image, Enchong admitted that he has never really found it hard to live a life free from intrigues and controversies. “Conscious ako but at the same time kasi lifestyle ko na rin ito eh. Bata pa lang ako ganito na yung buhay ko sa probinsya hanggang ngayon. Kumabaga yung suporta siguro ng magulang ko andun din kaya hindi mahirap para sa akin na maging on my toes palagi na, ‘Shucks kailangan ko maging mabait, kailangan ko maging good boy,’ yung ganun. Kumbaga yun na talaga yung kinalakihan ko so jackpot (laughs),” he explained.
