Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus first runner up Robi Domingo is excited for the premiere of his new regular show, the mini-series called Your Song Presents: Boystown on Sunday, May 10.
The 19-year-old MYX veejay also expressed how happy he was because he's not only doing a guest role in this show. It can be remembered that as Vincent, Robi had a short appearance in the Philippine adaptation of the Korean drama series My Girl, which topbilled the young loveteam Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson.
"Expect Vincent from My Girl to evolve to Arkin na," said Robi when asked what viewers can expect from him in this show, after the press conference of Boystown last night, May 5, at the Party Venue in Scout Tuason, Quezon City.
The incoming second year college student described his role as something that's very different from his real personality. "Alam niyo naman ang image ko medyo goody-goody boy. Dito, medyo salbahe ako, maangas, at makikita nila na palagi akong nakasimangot," he added.
Do you think you can pull off such character since it's exactly the opposite of yourself?
"Sana, sana," he answered. "Sa tingin ko dahil bago, sana I hope ma-deliver ko ang role ni Arkin perfectly. Okay naman sabi ni Direk Lino. Pero I know, since bago pa ako, there's still room for improvement. But I'll do whatever it takes to be a good actor."
WORKING WITH GIGGER BOYS Aside from having his first regular TV series, Robi is also grateful that he will be working with his fellow Gigger Boys namely Enchong Dee, Sam Concepcion, Dino Imperial, AJ Perez, Aaron Villaflor, and Chris Gutierrez.
"I'm very honored na kasama ko pa 'yong dance group namin sa ASAP '09 and nawala na 'yong barrier na, 'Uy, bago kong makakasama 'to so mahihiya ako o mate-threaten ako dito,'" said Robi.
Although there will be seven actors who will topbill the show, he clarified that they will be given equal parts in this mini-series.
He explained, "Lahat naman kami dito masasabi kong bida kasi we have our own plot. Ako lang kasi ang nasa harapan kasi ako 'yong katunggali ni Enchong. Wala namang issue sa amin kung sino ang lead role, sino ang cameo role lang, ibang plot."
The young celebrity also cleared that there will be no personal rivalry between him and Enchong Dee, since Arkin will be a villain to the former's character. "Enchong and I, we're good friends. We support each other lalo na sa rehearsals, nagpapaturo ako sa kanya, minsan nagpapaturo siya sa akin."
He even described how close he is to his groupmates, "Ayos naman kami, wala namang inggitan, wala namang kahit anong away."
