Joross Gamboa says his new movie is not a ‘Die Beautiful’ copycat

 

With his first starring role in the movie Deadma Walking now starting production, Joross Gamboa admitted this will different from his past gay roles (the latest was Star Cinema’s Can’t Help Falling in Love earlier this year). “Siguro ito yung time na yung atake ko naman pa-men? Kasi feeling ko masyado na akong naging comfortable sa mga pilantik, sa lambot ng boses. Parang nalalaro ko na so ang challenge ngayon sa akin yung maging pa-men type and at the same time ma-match ko yung emotions na kailangan kasi maganda yung script eh. Maganda yung material so kailangan ko alagaan yung mga eksena,” he shared.

The 32-year-old actor said he understands if there will be comparisons to his movie role with that of Paolo Ballesteros’s character in Die Beautiful because they both play homosexual characters who will meet an early death in the film. “Siyempre ma-ko-compare siya kasi sa Die Beautiful ipinakita yung transformation niya. Isang factor yun na iko-compare kung ano yung magiging look ko dito and parang parehas may concept ng death mapag-ma-match din yun. Pero in total magkalayo ng storya eh. Both stories talk about life and death pero dito yung friendship marami pang iniikutan pa na iba rito eh. Hindi yun yung main focus,” he explained.


Currently playing a role in the teleserye La Luna Sangre, Joross said he has never had an issue playing straight or gay roles. “Comfortable naman ako sa lahat basta ang kailangan ko lang makapag-prepare. Kasi minsan ang challenge kapag sobrang madami ka ng ginagawa wala ka ng time buohin yung character. Kasi bago ko gawin ang isang palabas binubuo ko na yung tao eh na hindi ako. Lalagyan ko ng konting part of me lang. Pero ibang tao yun,” he added. 

In Deadma Walking, Joross also looks forward to working closely with Edgar Allan Guzman whom he has known for a long time already in showbiz. “Natutuwa ako kasi unang una si EA matagal ko ng kilala hindi pa siya artista. Nag-start si EA back-up dancer ko dati so bago pa siya mag-Mr. Pogi. Dancers ko dati si EA at si Gerald (Anderson) nung nagsimula sila. Lagi ko naman sila nakakasama at nakaka-bonding, nag-ba-basketball kami so may communication pa rin. So hindi kami strangers. Kaya nakakatuwa si Gerald at si EA hindi nagbago parehas. Mag-best friend kami dito. Hindi kami talo (laughs). Kaya kumbaga light lang para sa aming dalawa,” he said.

Regardless if he is doing an indie or mainstream project, Joross said what is important to him is portraying his roles well. “Sa akin pare-parehas challenging pero sa mainstream hindi pa naman ako nakakapag-try ng main character. Sa mga Star Cinema movies I play support, parang ako nga yung Nikki Valdez na lalakeng version, best friend ng bayan. Or kung hindi best friend may mga role na gusto ko pero light lang. Sa indie mas nalalaro ko yung drama, yung lalim kasi mas seryoso yung halos lahat ng indie kong ginagawa. Actually ngayon yung sa Buy Bust seryoso rin yung role ko. Drug addict kami dun na mga killer eh. So yun naman yung sa action side. Medyo kriminal ako na ghetto,” he said.
