As one of Viva’s busiest new stars, Sean De Guzman has already started making a name for himself in Vivamax Original projects like Mahjong Nights, Taya, and Hugas. For his latest project, Sean said he enjoyed shooting Island of Desire in different locations in Zambales.

“Ang nagustuhan ko sa character ko is iba yung storya niya and parang malaki yung naging part ni Leloy sa buhay ni Martha. So challenging din yung mga eksena na ginawa namin dito. Kakaiba nga na hindi mo inaasahan mangyari sa utak ng isang tao yung ganung bagay,” he said.

In Island of Desire, the 22-year-old actor got to work with veteran director Joel Lamangan whom he said is professional on the set and is a good mentor for newbie actors like him.

“Nasigawan na ako at napagalitan na ni direk dahil may mga bagay na hindi ko pa alam. Pero hindi ka naman niya pagagalitan or pagsasabihan ng walang dahilan. Kumbaga, dun sa pagkakamali mong yun, dun ka dapat matututo. Wala na kasi akong matandaan na sinabi ni direk or napagalitan ako, pero ang lagi niyang sinasabi sa akin ay dapat maging mahusay akong artist kung gusto kong tumagal sa industriya,” he explained.

Even with the acclaimed director’s intimidating personality, Sean said he wanted to learn as much as he can during their lock-in shoot for the film.

“Nagtatanong din ako kay direk. Kasi kailangan yung communication between actor and director. Kailangan yung nagkakaintindihan kung ano yung interpretation ni direk dun sa eksena ay yun ang gagawin. At siyempre may freedom naman kaming mga actors to do the scene, kung ano yung nararamdaman talaga nila dun sa eksena. Yun yung binibigay sa amin ni direk,” he added.

Being new to acting, Sean said he has learned to accept all kinds of comments from his colleagues and netizens alike.

“Yung mga bad comments na nababasa ko through social media, tini-take ko siya as parang in a positive way, kumabaga hinahayaan ko na mag-comment sila ng bad comments kasi nagagamit ko din yun. Nagiging bala ko, mas namo-motivate ako, mas ginagalingan ko pa kumbaga. Hindi ako masyado nagpapa-apekto, hindi ako masyado nagpapadala sa mga masasamang sinasabi sa akin. Kung sinasabihan ako na, ‘Maghubad ka na lang! Maghubad na lang kayo!’ mga ganyan, mas ini-improve ko, kumbaga pinapatunayan ko na mas may acting,” he shared.
