Andrew1Andrew2Andrew3ANDREW Muhlach is the youngest son of Cheng Muhlach who has nine kids. His older brothers who are also in showbiz are Aga and AJ Muhlach. He is turning 25 in June and started acting as a 5-year old child star.

“I did teleseryes like ‘Super Inggo’ and ‘Pieta’ and the movie ‘Super Noypi’ sa Regal,” he says. “At 11, I stopped kasi awkward stage for me, but I tried theatre. I returned to the movies when I was 15 in ‘Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin’ with Maricel Soriano. I got to college taking up entrepreneurship but I stopped nung third year na ako kasi dumami ang projects ko.”

His primary problem growing up is his weight. “Tabain kasi ako, e. Papayat-tataba-papayat. As of now, I’ve lost 15 kilos pero mahirap i-maintain, e. So I play basketball everyday.”

He’s been living alone since their dad passed. “I was the one living with him when he died in 2018 at nagsosolo na ako mula noon.”

No lovelife? “Wala, e. Walang nakikita, walang dumarating. And my career is really my priority now kasi sunud-sunod ang projects na binibigay sa akin ng Viva.”

He’s playing mostly supporting roles. “Yes, but comedy ang forte ko. Si Adam Sandler ang idol ko. I usually play friend ng bida. But I’m ready to do all kinds of roles.”

Didn’t he do a sexy nude love scene in “Siklo”? “Yes, dun pa lang. Direk Roman Perez convinced me. Pero sobrang kinakabahan ako ng gawin ko ‘yun. Ina-acid ang tiyan ko, so I asked for medicine. Sabi ni Direk, huwag kang ma-stress para hindi ka mag-acid. Bale ba, ‘yung kapareha ko, first time din niya to do a sexy scene, si Rob Guinto, so sabi ko, magtulungan na lang tayo para magawa natin. E, ang love scene pa naman namin, sa hagdanan. Naitawid naman namin.”

He’s more relaxed when he’s doing wholesome comedies like “Working Boys 2: Choose Your Papa”. “Lima kami ritong lazy bums. Kasama ko sina Wilbert Ross, Mikoy Morales, Nikko Natividad and Vitto Marquez. I play the role of Max at ako ‘yung pinakamakulit and happy go lucky sa grupo namin.”

He enjoyed shooting the movie, which is directed by Paolo O’Hara. “Masayang kasama ang grupong ito, kasi lahat, magaan katrabaho. Lock in shooting kami nito at walang nagpapabida or nagpapa-diva sa set. Para magkatrabaho kami, si Bayani Agbayani, our adviser, helped us put up an app Choose Your Papa, offering various services kung sino ang gusto magpapaluto, papaligo, papasama, papabili at kung anong papagawa sa amin.”

So join Andrew and his barkada if you want to laugh out loud in their zany comedy, “Working Boys 2, Choose Your Papa”, which is opening in theaters nationwide on Wednesday, March 29.
