Known as an outspoken celebrity, especially when it comes to his political views, Trip to Quiapo actor Enchong Dee said he has grown up not being afraid to let people know what’s on his mind, especially if it’s for the good of the people.

“Bata pa lang ako mahilig na ako manuod ng news eh. Tapos at the same time, parang ang unfair na kumuha ka ng edukasyon mo tapos tinuturo sa ‘yo ng magulang mo kung ano yung tama a mali, pero bakit sa gobyerno natin bakit ganun? Kumbaga, ako naman, wala naman akong intention na (magsabi), ‘Okay, you’re a bad person. You’re a good person.’ Hindi ganun eh. Ang point ko lang, kung ano yung ginagawa niyo sa amin eh mangyayari sa ating lahat. Kumbaga damay rin kayo. So ang point ko lang, kung hindi niyo kami tutulungan, eh anong mangyayari sa atin di ba?” he shared during the virtual media conference for the iWant TFC original documentary series Trip to Quiapo last October 19.

The 31-year-old host also likened the situation of the country to the film industry. “Pag gagawa ng pelikula, kailangan may writer, may director, nasa isang direction kayo. Pagka nasa isang direction kayo, maganda yung kalalabasan. Pero kung kanya kanya kayo tapos nag-aaway away pa kayo dun mismo kunyari sa pre-prod o kaya sa post-prod, makikita yun sa pelikula eh. Lalabas yung pelikula na panget di ba? So ganun din yung kalalabasan ng bansa natin. Pero kung meron tayong boses, meron naman tayong opinyon, gamitin natin para tulungan natin yung ibang tao na (mag-isip na), ‘Maybe may point siya.’ So ako lang, gamitin natin yung magagandang opinyon para mapabuti yung kalagayan nating lahat. I won’t be fake and I won’t lie pero I like hanging out with people that I can learn a lot from,” he added.

Onscreen, Enchong said he does not mind playing less opinionated characters or roles that are opposite of him in real life. “I think I don’t mind kasi klaro sa akin kung ano yung mga dapat na responsibilidad ng mga tao. And by the end of the day it’s a character at masarap paglaruan. Kaya dito sa project na ito I’m very, very happy, I’m very, very honored to be part of kasi hinayaan nila ako maging exploratory when it comes to the character and the story. Ang sarap. Sabi ko kay sir Ricky (Lee), direk Treb, ‘Hindi ito yung first and last ah (laughs)’ kasi na-enjoy ko talaga itong grupo na ito and I wish we have better options and we have better situations so we can finish the project. Pero as it is, andito tayo sa kalagayan na ‘to so we worked the best that we can to cater to our audience,” he said.
