Dennis Trillo may have been earned some sort of playboy image during his younger years, but the Kapuso actor claims that he never had three ex-girlfriends fighting over him.
Such is the case in his latest role as Liam in GMA Network’s romantic-comedy series The One That Got Away (TOTGA), which he co-headlines with Lovi Poe, Rhian Ramos, and Max Collins.
“Iba! Tatlo ‘to, e. Parang sobrang perfect mo na para pag-agawan ka ng tatlo, e!”
In real life, did it ever happen to him?
Dennis jokingly answered, “Hindi pa naman. Parang dalawa lang yata dati. Loko lang, loko lang!”
Looking back at his dating history, he went on to say that he doesn’t have an ex-girlfriend whom he can call his TOTGA.
“Parang wala naman. Wala naman akong pinagsisisihan na relasyon na nakawala. Kung hindi para sa ‘yo, hindi para sa ‘yo.”
Dennis spoke to entertainment reporters at the presscon of TOTGA held at NIX.05 restobar in Tomas Morato, Quezon City last January 4.
Asked about being paired with three lead Kapuso actresses for the show, Dennis said he was motivated to level up his game.
“Nakaka-intimidate sila dahil ang gaganda nila, ang si-sexy. Tatlong pinakamagagandang artista sa GMA kasama ko sa isang show.
"Natsa-challenge ako dahil kailangan ko mag-extra effort para pumantay sa kanila.
“Pag tiningnan mo sila, para silang mga Victoria Secret models para sa akin, e.”
After his last stint on the fantaserye Mulawin vs. Ravena, Dennis is looking forward to doing a sexy romantic comedy, just like his previous series Juan Happy Love Story opposite Heart Evangelista.
Describing the theme of TOTGA, Dennis said, “May konting sexy. Medyo may pang-mature na audience. Medyo Sex and The City na mas feel good and mas batang audience.
“Yung characters nila Lovi, Rhian, at Max sumasalim sa iba’t ibang klaseng characters ng babae.
(Sex and The City is a popular American TV series and film franchise that follows the romantic escapades and life drama of four women played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattral, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon.)
Does he have kissing scenes with all three leading ladies?
“Meron, kasi naging kami, e. So, kailangan ipakita yung intimacy para mag-work yung eksena.”
But Dennis made it clear that his character Liam is not a playboy.
“Kaya nga sa tingin nila ako yung ideal para sa kanila dahil talagang matinong boyfriend ako.
“Yung role ko dito, ako yung tipo ng lalaking gusto mo talagang ipakilala sa magulang.”
