Arron Villaflor enjoys his kontrabida role in 'Juan dela Cruz'


052213-aaron_main.jpgJuan dela Cruz is topping primetime ratings and Arron Villaflor, one the main leads of the teleserye, attributes the success of the show to the superb story telling and directing. “Sobrang natutuwa ako siyempre as part of Juan dela Cruz family, napakalaking bagay non na malaman na number one tayo sa primetime bida. At natitiyak ko naman dahil ang mga writers natin at ang mga directors namin, ay sobrang ang gagaling, pinag-iisipan ang bawat eksena at nagkakaroon ng diskusyon ang bawat eksena,” Arron remarked during an interview backstage with Push.com.ph during Juan Fun Day last March 19.

The actor shared that he is truly enjoying his first kontrabida role and is working hard on improving his character. “Overwhelming sa akin lalo na kasi ako’y isang aswang dito. First time kong mag role as a kontrabida talaga, kaya natutuwa ako at ang sarap sa pakiramdam talaga. At natututo ako dahil sa character ko as Kael. Dahan-dahan ko siya na napag-iisipan ng mga kakaibang gawin o kung ano ‘yung nababagay sa character which is nagugustuhan ng tao,” he said.

On how he prepares for his role, Arron relayed, “Pinaghandaan ko talaga ‘to kasi isang malaking break ito ng ABS-CBN. I do watch movies, nagbabasa ako ng mga articles about the kontrabidas sa mga Hollywood stars. Don ako humuhugot. Don ko napaglaruan ‘yung character as Kael. So ‘yun patuloy ko pa ring pinagsisikapan.”

Now that it seems he can play a villain well, would he want to pursue this as a career route? “Why not? Nag-eenjoy ako dito sa role ko at natutuwa ako dahil ang ganda talaga ng feedback at nag-eenjoy ako bilang kontrabida,” he said.

The actor clarified though that he’s open to trying new characters in the near future to grow more as an actor. “Ayaw ko ring mag stick sa isa. Gusto kong mag-explore ng ibang bagay, ng mga ibang characters. At gusto ko ‘yung maggo-grow ako as an actor. So kung may mga pagkakataon, go, tatangapin ko, basta I will do my job, I will work hard on it,” he commented.
