Young actor Dennis Trillo is undaunted by some people's observation that he's wasting his good talent by doing telefantasya roles instead of concentrating more on serious drama where he's very effective.
"Sa ngayon, sa dami ng walang trabaho, ayaw naming tumanggi sa mga projects na ibinibigay. 'Yong iba lumalapit, nakikiusap na maipasok sa isang show, so para tanggihan mo, hindi ko magagawa yon. Wala ako sa lugar para tumanggi," said Dennis during an interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last night, September 17, at the press conference of his latest telefantasya for GMA-7, Zaido.
Dennis also explained that doing Zaido is a fresh change, considering that he is doing serious acting in the afternoon drama series, Kung Mahawi Man ang Ulap, opposite Nadine Samonte.
Although he won't be shedding tears with emotional lines in Zaido, the challenge this time for Dennis is to stay fit for all his fight scenes and minor stunts.
"Continuous ang training, which is also very good for me personally since nakakapag-exercise ako while working at the same time."
GOING SEXY. With Dingdong Dantes's decision to finally go daring, is Dennis is also contemplating the same route?
"Nakita ko 'yong kay Dingdong," he said, referring to Dingdong's nude pictorial and coming-out party at the Cosmopolitan Bachelor's Bash.
"Sa tingin ko hindi ko pa kaya. Nagulat ako pero okay 'yon para kay Dingdong and kayang-kaya n'yang dalhin. Ako, hindi ko pa ma-imagine 'yong sarili ko na gano'n," smiled Dennis sheepishly.
Although Dennis is no stranger when it comes to provocative poses, he said he's not yet ready to shed off the wholesome image he has cultivated through the years.
"Ako siguro, may konting takip pa," he shared when probed on how far he is willing to go at this point in his career.
But what if he'll be given a role similar to that of Dingdong in Marimar where he is expected to be more daring?
"Kakayanin," said Dennis optimistically. "Kung mabibigyan ba tayo ng project na ganun, tingin ko, kakayanin ko naman."
When it comes to his love life, the young actor stressed that he is still single. But he never denied going out on dates if he's not busy with work.
"Oo naman. Minsan lumalabas-labas din for dates. Pero madalang din kasi ngayon gusto ko na lang muna mag-trabaho at i-enjoy 'yong mga pinaghihirapan ko."
