STAR: LUIS ALANDY

Luis OK with gay roles



I’VE always admired Luis Alandy’s kind of acting. He excels in both good or bad roles.

He has no qualms of essaying even a most controversial gay role that includes a man-to-man kissing scene, as long as it’s relevant to the story.

We asked him: How do you handle an indecent proposal from a gay? Are you for or against it?

“No, I have nothing against gay relationships. It’s their preference, it’s their choice. I’ll just tell then I’m straight, that it wasn’t the way I was brought up, it’s not my sexual preference. So I’ll make it clear that I have my limits. I play around with my gay friends, but I know my boundaries.”

Polo Ravales, in this film Manay Po, is
 
 about to get married until his girlfriend (Glaiza de Castro) finds out he’s gay, and that you’re his boyfriend. If it happens that before your wedding date you discover your girl is a lesbian, how will you handle such a situation?

“Just like before, when Desiree del Valle was my girlfriend. She was rumored to have married another girl in the States.
Sa akin kasi, whatever is her past, it’s none of my business anymore. What’s important to me is the present and what we have. But if it happened within our relationship and I found that out, I’ll definitely get out of the relationship.” 

Aren’t you worried of typecasting? After Brokeback Mountain, gay movies have mushroomed. If you’re offered another gay role, how far will you go?

“I’ve been doing character roles in the past ... but, hopefully, not another gay part. It’s hard to be known for just one type of role; offers will be limited. Actually, I find it very challenging to portray gay roles.

“As an actor, I don’t limit myself into doing only what is offered to me. It will defend on the character to be portrayed, the story, how is it gonna be directed, the actors you gonna work with. I don’t mind doing those love scenes, but how relevant are they to the story?

“I’m doing a movie with Direk Gil Portes in Greece with Agot Isidro, Alessandra de Rossi and Ricky Davao. And there’s another soap opera, hopefully to start this month, with ABS-CBN.”

Manay Po, directed by Joel Lamangan, hits theaters starting May 31. A red-carpet premiere night is scheduled on May 29 at SM Megamall.

Cherie Pie Picache leads the cast with her three gay sons: Polo Ravales, John Prats and Jiro Manio. With support from Christian Vasquez, IC Mendoza and Theo Bernados.
