Though Dominic Roque wishes that Seklusyon will get a PG-13 rating, he also wants his intimate scene with butt exposure to be shown in the movie's local cut. He even joked, "Pero ako, okay lang po kung mapanuod ng lahat. Makinis naman daw po [yung puwet ko]."



ABS-CBN actor Dominic Roque did an intimate scene in the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Seklusyon wherein he had butt exposure.

He revealed this during the December 19 press conference for this horror movie. He said, "Magpapakita ng pwet. Ginawa ko naman sa eksena."

However, he clarified, "Nasa international cut siya."

Aside from being an official MMFF entry, Seklusyon is also the only Philippine entry in the non-competition Hidden Dragons section of the 1st Macao International Film Festival, which is why it has two different versions.

It has yet to be seen if the intimate scene will be shown in the Philippine version after the film was granted an R-13 rating by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).

At the time of the presscon, the rating was not yet released by the MTRCB.

Dominic added, "Actually, ang ganda noong pinanuod namin yung buong movie ng international cut. Iba yung pagka-intense ng mga eksenang natanggal.

"Kahit ako po, yun siguro yung pinakamalalang eksenang ginawa ko sa showbiz po."

When asked if he wants the local viewers to see his butt exposure, Dominic answered: "Siyempre, mas gusto pa rin po nating makakuha ng maraming audience para sa pelikula. Feeling ko, kung sa PG-13 [ilagay], baka po matanggal, e.

"Pero ako, okay lang po kung mapanuod ng lahat.

He even joked, "Makinis naman daw po [yung puwet ko]. May audition kasi yung puwet, e. Titignan kung ano yung pinaka okay!"


How was he convinced to do a sensitive role for this movie directed by Erik Matti?

"Siyempre po, tinanong ko po muna sa managers ko, sa Star Magic yung tungkol doon sa eksena and then pinag-isipan namin.

"Ako, okay naman po at saka si Direk Erik naman po yung magiging director namin na hindi ako papabayaan sa pelikula.

"So um-okay po kami doon sa eksena. Siyempre, sa Bench [fashion show], nagpakita na rin naman na ako ng underwear lang."

INTIMATE SCENE. In this horror movie, Dominic plays one of the four deacons sent to a seclusion house to resist temptations from the devil to attack their faith.



Since he plays an aspiring priest in the movie, many wondered why his character will be involved in a love scene.

According to Dominic, he is not yet allowed to reveal what will happen to him and his partner in the said scene.

He only said, "Actually, kung mapapanuod niyo po next year, isa sa highlight talaga yung eksenang ginawa ko.

"Ito yung pinakamalalang nagawa ko, mas daring po yung role at saka mas kakaiba yung eksena.

"Nagpakita po ako ng puwet and then may iba pong ginawa sa pelikula na feeling namin, e, magiging kontrobersyal."

The 26-year-old actor revealed that he was really nervous before doing the crucial scene.

He disclosed, "Noong bago ko gawin yun, actually, parang may schedule siya na gawin this day pero namomove siya.

"Medyo kinakabahan ako noong una na sana magawa ng maayos yung eksena kasi ang daming takes at ang daming kinukuhanang anggulo ng eksena.

"So everytime na iuulit ng iuulit yung eksena, kailangan intense yung naiibibigay, same yung intensity ng sitwasyon."

How did he feel after finally doing the scene? "Pagod na pagod, paos yung boses.

"First time po yung ganitong klaseng eksena, kasi dati may ginawa na rin ako for Moon of Desire na parang nakipag-sex ako kay Meg [Imperial].

"First kong ginawa yung sex scene, medyo nailang ako pero si Direk FM [Reyes] naman so naging okay."

He was referring to the Kapamilya afternoon series Moon of Desire (2014) wherein he had a shower scene that bared his body. This became a trending topic on Twitter.

To prepare for Seklusyon, Dominic recalled, "Dito po sa eksenang ito, noong nagworkshop kami with Direk Erik [Matti], nandoon naman yung familiarization mo sa kapwa artista at saka nag-usap kami nung ka-eksena ko dito sa eksena na gagawin namin.

"Hindi naman ito for gusto kong gawin, ito eksena lang talaga, inexplain ni Direk Erik na eksena lang to, huwag sanang isipin na magte-take advantage ako."

After doing this mature scene for the movie, will Dominic be more open to doing daring roles in the future?

The Pangako Sa 'Yo actor said, "Hindi naman po ako magfocus ng magpasexy ng magpasexy.

"Ito, first time lang naman po na gagawin. Siguro, depende sa mga gagawin at rereviewhin po naming maigi yung character at yung eksena.

"Hindi ko masabi, e. Titignan pa rin natin. Siguro [kung] di naman kailangan na ipakita na ganong extent na yung gagawin sa isang pelikula o project."

Aside from Dominic, Seklusyon also features Hashtags member Ronnie Alonte and newcomers Johnvic de Guzman, and JR Versales.
