Tayuan1Tayuan2A NEW Viva hunk is introduced in Direk Topel Lee’s sex-drama, “Tayuan”, to start streaming on June 23. This is Chester Grecia who plays Rico, a bus conductor. Angeli Khang is one of their passengers in their jampacked bus. She plays Ella, a liberated woman who takes a fancy on him, ardently pursues him and seduces him for them to have an affair.

“I try to resist her kasi pamilyado akong tao sa story,” says Chester. “I am married to Stefanie Raz as Bing and we have a child. Noong una, napilitan lang ako to marry her as she’s already pregnant. But after we were married, I tried my best to be a responsible husband to her and a loving father to our child. But eventually, magtatagumpay si Angeli na akitin ako and we’ll have sex inside the bus habang nakatayo kami.”

Before he joined showbiz, Chester worked as an OFW at a Caribbean resort as a food and beverage server. When he came back home, he worked as an insurance agent and a barista. Then someone brought him to Viva and he is now one of their resident studs.

He feels blessed as “Tayuan” is just his first movie but he’s already given a leading role. He has sexy bed scenes with both Angeli and Stefanie. Didn’t he hesitate to disrobe before the camera and do nude love scenes with them?

“There are no hesitations,” he says. “Binasa ko ‘yung script, so I know what’s expected from me at okay naman sa akin. It’s very challenging but for me, pinasok ko ito, so basta kung ano ang hinihingi ng script, I’m willing to do it.”

So it’s fine with him to do more sexy flicks? “Yes, okay lang sa akin to do more sexy roles. Enjoy naman ako sa trabaho ko, but I’m willling to grow as an actor and play other kinds of roles.”

How did he prepare for his first movie? “Before this, I did a short guest role in the soap ‘Abot Kamay na Pangarap’. Kaeksena ko si Ms. Dina Bonnevie. Parang screen test kung okay ba ako on screen. After that, I took an acting workshop to help prepare me in facing the movie camera. I enjoyed it kasi dagdag-kaalaman siya dito sa pinasok ko.”

How is it being paired with Angeli Khang in his first movie? “Noong una, medyo naiilang ako kasi baguhan lang ako compared to her. But she surprised me. She’s such a gentle soul. She was the one who reached out to me and she guided me in our scenes together. Tinuruan niya ako on how to do our scenes right. I’m really thankful na very helpful siya, also si Direk Topel Lee who is very understanding kasi alam niyang I’m a newcomer at first movie ko lang ito.”

Chester is 25 years old, stands 5’11” and has a hunky muscular physique and virile screen presence perfect for disrobing in Vivamax soft porn extravaganzas. We won’t be surprised if he’d soon be doing one movie after another.
