Sam Milby admits he does not want to be compared to Eugene Domingo's previous leading men.
As part of this year's Metro Manila Film Fest entry Kimmy Dora: Ang Kiyemeng Prequel
, Sam Milby said his fans will see a different side of him in the action-comedy flick. “They will see the action side of Sam, yung
side na mahilig mag-
action at fight scenes. Yun ang
difference sa ibang
roles na nagawa ko, mas maraming
fight scenes dito,
” he explained.
The Fil-Am hunk said he does not want to be compared to previous Kimmy Dora leading men like Dingdong Dantes and Zanjoe Marudo because his character does not have an overly romantic angle with Eugene Domingo's character. “Basta iba yung love team, hindi naman kami love team dito that's why I find it very different. Hindi puwedeng i-compare ako at yung mga leading men niya sa first two movies kasi hindi kami talaga love team. It's hard to explain pero makikita niyo naman sa movie. It's more of landian lang, ganun,” he said.
Sam said that he does not want to feel pressured even though it is his first time to be part of the Metro Manila Film Festival. “Honestly kahit papaano may konting pressure. Pero yung pressure hindi dahil sa MMFF pero it's more of the pressure sa comparison sa mga naging dating leading men ni Eugene kasi ako, parang nag-ra-ride lang ako sa success ng first two Kimmy Doras na sobrang successful. First time siyempre na nakasama sa MMFF and yung pressure is more on kay Ate Uge kasi it's her and Direk Chris's (Martinez) movie so ako sakay lang and enjoy. I'm just happy to be part of this third and last installment ng Kimmy Dora and to be part of the MMFF for the first time as well,” he explained.
Apart from promoting Kimmy Dora: Ang Kiyemeng Prequel this month, Sam will be keeping busy spending the holidays with loved ones who are flying in from the United States. “I'm spending it with my family. Yung mom and dad ko pupunta sila dito next week tapos magpapasko dito and New Year andito rin sila,” he shared.
Another thing Sam is also happy about is his newest business venture, a bar located inside Fort Bonifacio Global City. “For the longest time, gusto ko talaga mag-venture into business habang may trabaho pa ako sa showbiz. I think it's a good idea talaga na mag-venture into business kaya lang wala pa akong parang studies or experience pagdating sa side na yan so mabuti na lang yung isang kaibigan ko na magaling sa negosyo na maraming experience din, lumapit sa akin kung gusto ko sumama sa business nila. And ayun, I wanted to do it more for the learning experience and it's doing well so I'm very happy,” he said.
