Now that he and his love team partner Liza Soberano are playing more serious characters in the movie Everyday I Love You, Enrique Gil said his role was really a big acting challenge. In the movie, he plays serious, career-oriented Ethan. "Nahirapan naman ako kasi they wanted to change me totally. So nakita nila dati sa akin as in they want straight, seryoso lagi, hindi nagpapatawa, hindi parang sumasayaw. They wanted me to be in a more mature role dito,” he admitted.
The 23-year-old Kapamilya hunk said his love for dancing shows in his personality which makes him almost never wants to sit still. "Eh hindi ako ganun eh. Makulit ako eh, parang energetic. So si direk nagsasabi, ‘Oh, parang kiti kiti ka na naman!’ Very focused, very quiet si Ethan, very straightforward. So yun ang challenge para sa akin kaya si direk nakabantay lagi. Dun ako nahihirapan talaga kasi hindi ako sanay,” he said.
After figuring in a controversy during a recent trip to London for ASAP, Quen said he just wants to move on from the past and does not think it will affect his current and succeeding projects. "Sa tingin ko naman hindi naman po, ang tagal na. Kailangan natin isipin ngayon yung pelikula natin na mas importante,” he said.
When asked if it was true he and Liza finally have a kissing scene on the big screen. "Secret! Yung nakikita niyo sa trailer kiniss nga ni Liza si Gerald (Anderson) habang naka-coma pa siya. But as far as that abangan niyo. Yan ang exciting,” he added.
After working with Gerald Anderson on the set of the teleserye Budoy in 2011, Quen feels like Everyday I Love You has become a reunion project of sorts for them. "Actually I was really new at that time. Nakikita and napapanuod ko lagi si Ge so whatever you watch dun ka rin natututo lalo na on the set when we have scenes together so I learned a lot kay Ge. Especially sa Budoy dun kami nagkasama talaga, ako yung kontrabida nun (laughs). So I learned a lot from him,” he admitted.
