Dominic Roque denies courting Kathryn Bernardo: ‘Gusto ko lang siya makatrabaho nung time na yun’


042514-dominic_main.jpgAfter showing off a more mature image in the afternoon soap Moon of Desire, Dominic Roque admitted he is ready to say goodbye to teenybopper roles like the role of Hubert in the 2012 fantaserye Aryana. “After Aryana personally siguro wala naman nabago, siguro ang nagbago lang ay yung pananaw na sa pag-arte na kailangan mas maging seryoso, kasi challenge ito na kakaiba ang lahat ng mga role na gagawin namin so dun lang siguro pero personally wala naman. For me dapat talaga hindi ka magbago. Kung ano ka dati dapat ganun pa rin. From pa-teen teen roles ko dati ngayon ay nag-iba na. Talagang tumalon ako sa pagiging bata or teen sa mature role na sexy and this one is a challenge talaga for me,” he admitted.

Dominic said he is ready to show some skin in his newest project. “Yes, to be a part of this show I think it's a requirement na magpakita ng skin or magpa-sexy talaga kasi para magkaroon ka ng confidence kailangan mong pagpaguran yun or kailangan mong pagtrabahuan yung mga ganung bagay,” he added.

Dominic said being paired with Meg Imperial has been a good experience for him. “Actually first time namin magkatrabaho ni Meg. Dito lang kami nagkakilala sa look test nito at nung simula pa lang magaan na siya katrabaho, mabait at wala kaming ilangan. Kumbaga ‘pag may eksena kaming intimate or medyo ganun, nag-uusap kami bago i-take, nagsasabi siya ng, 'Uy huwag ka masyado mailang ha?' and so far nung may ginawa kaming intimate scene na first time ko gawin, nung ginawa namin wala kaming ilangan so very natural yung ginagawa namin na wala kang makikitang hiya,” he shared.

The 23-year-old actor said he cannot imagine a better leading lady than Meg right now. “Siguro for now kung ano yung meron ako dun ako mag-fo-focus lalo na sa mga bago kong leading ladies sila Meg Imperial so ito I'm giving 130 to 200% for this show na sana ay mag-work talaga at subaybayan ng madaming tao,” he said.


Before he started working on Moon of Desire, Dominic said he was not too worried about how fans of his tandem with Ella Cruz would react seeing him in a different kind of role. “Hindi ko rin alam, sana naman magustuhan pa rin nila ako or masubaybayan pa rin nila ako sa pang-hapon nga sa Kapamilya Gold at aasahan ko yung support nila sa akin,” he said.

When asked if he was still in touch with his former Aryana castmates, Dominic said they have all remained friends even after the show ended. “Yes, of course. Actually nagkikita-kita kami pag may mga events ang ABS-CBN at Star Magic so normal bonding kahit naman hindi events ng Star Magic nagkikita pa rin kami sa labas pag nagkakaayaan manuod ng movie, ganito ganyan,” he shared.

Until now, the actor said he still harbors a crush on Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis. “Isang maputi at isang medyo tanned ng konti. Siguro kay Angel kasi nagagandahan talaga ako sa kanya at alam naman natin sa mga nagawa niyang teleserye na magaganda rin naman,” he admitted.

Dominic said he would like to clarify the rumor that he was reportedly courting Kathryn Bernardo. “Actually nung time na yun hindi ko naman sinasabi na liniligawan ko si Kathryn. Gusto ko lang siya makatrabaho nung time na yun kasi alam naman natin lahat ng mga teen stars dati gusto siya talaga makatrabaho at makasama at makatambal sa pelikula or teleserye. Siguro now malaking jump ito para sa akin siguro nag-iba na rin yung iniisip ko na mapili kong bagong gustong makatambal,” he said.

To prepare for his intimate scenes in the show. Dominic said he tries his best to keep fit. “Dahil sa work, even if hindi ka makapag-work out for a week ang hirap hirap. Pero kailangan talaga namin at least four times a week kailangan namin mag-gym. Ang problema ko naman sa food pag may taping hindi ako nagtitipid ng pagkain kasi I eat rice or kahit anong pagkain pag taping kasi kailangan namin yun eh. Hindi ka makapag-isip masyado, hindi ka makapag-ano dun sa character mo pag hindi ka kumakain kasi hindi nag-po-process kumbaga,” he said.
