Eric Quizon on his kontrabida role: ‘Na guilty yata ako sa sinabi ko kay Heart’

On Tonight with Boy Abunda, Eric Quizon talked about the fun he’s been having playing a villain on the hit teleserye, My Dear Heart.

“I love villainous roles. Kasi you can never go wrong. […] Kapag kontrabida ka, pwede kang magwala. You can experiment, you can try different things… you can explore. And for an actor, it’s good for the soul.”

Although he enjoys playing the villain, the actor cum director had a difficult time playing that kind of role opposite a younger demographic. “Last Monday, I had a scene with Heart na binubulungan ko siya. Pagkatapos talaga, naiyak ako kasi, sabi ko, ‘ginagawa ko ito sa bata!’ Medyo nagkaroon ng kaunting guilt.”


He added, “Sabi nga ni Ria Atayde, ‘Tito, why are you crying?’ I said, ‘wala. Naguilty yata ako sa sinabi ko kay Heart.’ So may ganoon siyang factor. Of course you put yourself, I mean a part of you in the character – na guilty ako sa ginawa ko.”

As his character portrayal has been effective, the actor has been receiving a bunch of hate messages. He shared, “Ang pinaka worse na message na nakuha ko is, ‘Kung buhay lang ang tatay mo at alam niya ang pinaggagagawa mo!’ Sabi ko, ‘huh? Ba’t nakasama ang tatay ko?’”

With Dolphy’s fifth death anniversary approaching and in order to celebrate his legacy, Eric shared, “We have a big project in the works. We’re developing a property in Calatagan. Magtatayo kami ng Dolphyville, a subdivision in Calatagan.”
