When asked if his new role in his upcoming teleserye The Story of Us would be daring, Xian Lim responded, “I wouldn’t say daring kumbaga siguro nagpapakita ng katawan, it’s very new para sa akin pero ‘yun naman talaga ang buhay ng mga mangingisda eh so I wouldn’t say daring, it’s very normal, but it’s just very new para sa akin.”
Xian will be playing the role of a fisherman and a tour guide in Palawan. "Dito I will be playing Macoy at si Macoy ay isang mangingisda at tour guide sa El Nido, Palawan at ang kaibahan. This time around locals po kami ngayon. We live sa isla tapos kumbaga kung ano lang 'yung kailangan namin 'yun lang,” he shared.
After years of being an actor, Xian remarked that he has learned a lot of things that he now applies on his role in the show. “[I learned that] it takes a lot of focus through the years. Pero through the years, it goes way beyond just taping. This is my take on it na it’s part of my life. Kumbaga people always asked me ‘How many percent of Xian do you see?” I say a lot, mga 80 [percent] I always say 80 because I leave 20 [percent], I mean it’s me.”
Xian added that playing his role is a very memorable experience for him. “It’s a life changing journey para sa akin to play a role as Macoy,” he stated.
The actor is paired again with Kim Chiu in the soap. As he shared in a previous interview, Xian admitted that he missed working with the Chinita Princess. "To be honest, I missed Kim. Na-miss ko siya. Ang tagal naming hindi [nagkasama]. Nagsimula kami nito wow kumbaga masasabi ko lang its very fresh para sa akin. Halos isang taon din kaming hindi nagkasama."
Catch The Story of Us on February 29, 2016 on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida block after Dolce Amore.
