VinceVINCE Rillon has two films being shown consecutively. First is “Kaliwaan” which is now streaming on Vivamax, to be followed by “Pusoy”. Both films are produced by his mentor, Director Brillante Mendoza, but with different directors. “Kaliwaan” is directed by Daniel Palacio and “Pusoy” is directed by Italian-American filmmaker Philip Giordano. This makes Vince one of our busiest young actors today.

“Masuwerte akong puro magagandang projects ang napupunta sa akin,” he says. “Mabibigat din ang roles ko in both movies. Sa ‘Kaliwaan’, security guard akong nagselos nang makita ko ang girlfriend kong si AJ Raval na may kasamang ibang lalaki, kaya hinampas ko yung lalaki ng bato sa ulo.

“Dahil dito, magugulo ang buhay namin at ito-torture ako ng family nung lalaki. In ‘Pusoy’, bodyguard ako ng gambling lord na si Baron Geisler. Na-in love ako sa young mistress niya, si Angeli Khang, at dahil doon, magkakaroon kami ng malaking conflict.”

What can he say to bashers who claim that Vivamax shows are porn? “Hindi naman porn ang ginagawa namin dahil lahat ng actions namin, may pinanggalingan at bawat pelikula, may magandang kuwentong sumasalamin sa mga nangyayari sa atin ngayon sa totoong buhay. Sana, panoorin muna nila bago sila mag-judge.”

A few weeks ago, he won the best actor award at the 19th Asian Filmfest in Rome for his film, “Resbak”. “Unexpected po ‘yun,” he says. “It’s my very first acting recognition and nagulat talaga ako.

Feeling ko, napaka-blessed ko kasi dream ko naman talaga manalo ng award balang araw, pero parang maaga itong dumating sa akin. At hindi lang basta local, kundi international pa. Sobrang saya ko po sa pagkilala nila sa akin. We were just happy na pumasok ‘yung ‘Resbak’ sa filmfest tapos may bonus pang nanalo ako ng award.”

‘Resbak’ is directed by Brillante Mendoza and produced by Cignal. His co-stars are Jay Manalo, Nash Aguas, Albie Casino, Khalil Ramos and Bibeth Orteza. Film aficionados are now wondering as to when it will be shown so they can watch Vince’s award-winning performance.

“As of now, hindi pa rin po namin alam kung ano ang balak ng Cignal in releasing it. Marami ngang nagtatanong sa akin kung kailan nila mapapanood. Sana, soon.”

Vince is really so in demand as he has three other new films in the can: “The Policeman” with Coco Martin, “Virgin Forest” with Angeli Khang and Sid Lucero, and “Apag”, a movie filmed using Kapampangan. Does he dream of later branching out into wholesome mainstream movies withouse sex and nudity? “As of now, okay lang naman ako kasi dito ako nakilala sa Vivamax at sunud-sunod talaga ang trabaho ko. I’m only 23 years old, so hopefully, malayo pa ang tatakbuhin ng career ko. As of now, ine-enjoy ko muna ‘yung ginagawa ko ngayon habang bata pa ako. Kasi ‘yun ang inaabangan ng subscribers ng Vivamax, e. So ibigay muna ang hilig nila habang kaya pa.”
