ACTOR Sam Milby has revealed that he remains uneasy answering questions during interviews on television.
“Eleven years na ako sa show business pero never nawawala ’yung kaba ko sa interviews. I’ve never been good in answering questions. I admit that hindi ako magaling sumagot,” said Milby during an interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.
Milby appeared on the late-night talk show to promote his latest film “The Third Party” in which he plays the role of Max who breaks up with Andi (Angel Locsin) and falls in love with a guy named Christian in the US.
The actor said that he got excited when the role was offered to him. “Nagdalawang isip ako but not because of the role. When I was offered the role, I think doing this role is a different challenge. I was excited for that.”
Milby said that he initially got worried about his schedule in doing the film.
“Nagdalawang-isip ako because of the schedule. When I was younger, I’ve experienced ’yung sabay sa taping kasi may ‘Doble Kara’ rin ako. I was more worried about the schedule. Now I want to be able to give my best in every project that I do. But I was excited about the role,” Milby said.
Milby, 32, said that he does not believe you have to fall in love with someone so that you can move on from a failed relationship.
“I don’t believe that to be true. I believe the easiest way to move on after the breakup is you learn from that relationship. You can concentrate on yourself, and you learn to love yourself. Sa breakup parang lagi kang sanay na andyan ’yung tao, umikot ’yung mundo mo sa kanya di ba? Your whole life revolves around that person? So something that you have to deal with,” he said.
Milby also said that he has changed so much as a person and as an actor.
“Looking back at myself, nung ‘Pinoy Big Brother’ days, I’ve changed so much. I just realized who I am. What I want and I enjoyed the more simple things in life. I love being outdoors.
“Eleven years ago, immature, lost. Not really knowing who I am at all. Just kinda finding my way into the world and I’m also lucky. I didn’t know where my life was going. I’ve done some VTRs, auditions,” he added.
“I’ve improved as an actor. ’Yung sagabal lang sa akin ay ’yung language that has always been my struggle. And we all know that it’s something that I struggled with. Coming from someone who has no acting experience sana dun sa first movie ko na ‘Close to You’ hanggang dito sa ‘Third Party’ you’ll see a different Sam,” he said.
