Sam Milby admits he's scared to be overshadowed by Judy Ann Santos's acting


062513-sam_main.jpgCurrently playing the role of the very volatile Eros in the new Primetime Bida series Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala, Sam Milby admitted it is a whole new kind of acting experience for him. “Ito yung pinaka-challenging role na ginawa ko for sure. Siyempre yung mga roles ko dati typical leading man na pang-kilig, romantic. Nakikita naman na hindi yun ang role ko dito. Pero hindi siya yung kontrabida role din eh. He’s a kontrabida na malalaman niyo sa first week pa lang kung bakit ganun siya. Siyempre maaawa at kikiligin pa rin kayo sa character ko imbis na magalit,” he admitted.

As the story progresses, Sam said he had some difficulty shooting scenes in which he had to get violent with Judy Ann Santos who plays the role of Anessa, his wife. “Dito ang first time din na role na may ginawa akong bugbog sa babae. Lalo na nung mga first time na may eksena kami na ganun, parang nahihiya ako sa kanya kasi minsan pag andun ako sa eksena, mahirap para sa akin na idaya yung paghawak ko, yung malambot lang pero hindi. Malakas talaga yung paghawak ko, she lets me and pagkatapos ng eksena parang nako-konsensya na ako. sabi ko, ‘Okay ba kayo? Sorry ha.’ Nahiya ako sa kanya pero sobrang bait siya sa akin and she allowed me and it was okay with her. Tinutulungan niya ako. She’s perfected the craft of acting so working with her has been inspiring, it’s been a learning process para sa akin and a huge privilege,” he shared.

Sam said he feels very privileged to be Juday’s personal choice as leading man. “What else can you say, basta being handpicked by the queen, you can’t help but say I feel honored, privileged, and thankful. Sana lang hindi ko siya madi-disappoint si Juday, sa management, to everyone. I’m challenged by myself. I’m challenged by the management, sa mga viewers, kay Juday. Siyempre si Juday she’s mastered the art of acting and to be working with her, the Queen of Pinoy soap operas and ka-eksena ko siya, I’m just pressuring myself to really improve kasi gusto ko talaga ipakita na I’m taking this seriously. Gusto ko talaga mag-improve sa craft and ipakita na kaya kong gawin yung ganitong role. I feel honored to be working with her and yung puri niya sa akin,” he said.

Sam admitted that apart from trying to perfect his Tagalog (with the help of the same tutor as Gerald Anderson), he is also trying to keep up with the intensity of Juday’s acting especially during their dramatic scenes together. “Hindi naman fear but siyempre pag kasama mo ang isang Queen of Pinoy soap operas lalo na sa mga first taping days, kinakabahan. Siyempre to be a part of this project tapos kakaibang role din para sa akin, sana i-prove ko na kaya kong gawin yung ganitong role and siyempre sa sobrang galing niya sa acting, na hindi ma-overshadow din. Kasi when you’re with someone na ganun kagaling, someone’s you can get overshadowed sa acting niya. So yun yung mga takot ko. Pero sobrang happy ako ngayon kasi so far yung mga feedback na naririnig ko maganda naman galing kay Juday, at sa production at sa mga nanunuod,” he said.
