Enrique Gil wants to prove that he deserves the breaks he has been getting


033111-enrique_main.jpgEnrique Gil has risen from virtual showbiz newbie to one of the young actors to watch out for, thanks to bagging the lead roles in two ABS-CBN dramas, Mula Sa Puso and Good Vibes. At the press conference of Good Vibes, which is set to air this April 3, Enrique expressed how happy he was about the blessings he is receiving. “It feels great. I feel very blessed. I thank the management, Direk Lauren Dyogi (Business Unit Head of Good Vibes), for all the projects. Work lang ako nang work ngayon, kahit wala na masyadong tulog. Kagagaling ko lang ng MSP taping. Okay pa naman.”

The 18-year-old Fil-Spanish from Cebu, who got his first role in the 2008 afternoon soap Pieta playing Krista Ranillo’s younger brother, dismissed rumors that he is now the new favorite of ABS-CBN which is why he is being given good projects. “Hindi ko rin po alam. Right timing lang po siguro. I think si Direk Lauren nagustuhan niya ako to play the role of Troy here in Good Vibes, and si Direk Wenn (Deramas) naman nagustuhan niya ako to play Michael in Mula sa Puso. Nag-audition po ako dun. Marami kaming nag-audition and pabalik-balik kami.

Enrique experienced the sometimes harsh reality of showbiz when he was on the set of defunct teen variety show Shout Out and heard the harsh comments of some viewers who doubted if he deserved to be in the entertainment industry. “At first dinamdam ko talaga ‘yun. I said to myself, ‘Bulol ba talaga ako? Hindi ba talaga ako marunong mag-Tagalog?’ Siguro the fans just want to speak their minds. They can say whatever they want. Sana lang ngayon makita ng mga tao na hindi lang ako tulad ng ibang guys diyan na baguhan. I want to prove na kaya ko rin. I hope they get to see another side of me. Magustuhan nila ‘yung totoong Enrique, they learn more about me.”

It was also on the set of Shout Out where his rumored romance with Erich Gonzales began. But just like Erich, Enrique reiterated that they are just friends. “Siguro kasi nung Shout Out naging close kami ni Erich because pareho kaming Bisaya. Nagtetext kami dati, pero ngayon hindi na. Wala nga sa akin ‘yung phone ko ngayon. Super busy kami ngayon. Lahat kami sa Shout Out close.”

Though he admitted that he has a bit of a crush on Erich, Enrique explained that courting or having a relationship is not on his mind at the moment. “Wala pa sa isip ko ‘yan ngayon. MSP and GV pa ang priority ko ngayon. Deep kasi ‘yung mga characters ko dun so dapat ‘yun talaga ang iniintindi.
