Swimmer-turned-celebrity Enchong Dee expressed excitement for making a comeback in his acting career, in a press conference held June 27 at 38 Valencia Events Place for Regal Entertainment and The Idea First Company’s upcoming romantic horror-comedy film I Love You to Death.
After recording a self-titled album for Star Records and doing work outside the movie industry, the 27-year old actor said this time he would focus on honing his craft for acting, hoping to inspire a succeeding generation of artists.
Newbie actors Nico Nicolas and Christian Bables who were with Enchong and his leading lady Kiray Celis at the conference, supported Dee and said they felt inspired to work with the male lead actor.
Enchong also said he felt eager working with director Miko Livelo for a film he claimed as “experimental” and “different” from his past works in mainstream cinema. Livelo said the film would be a combination of horror and comedy, with the latter he claims as his “forte.”
Kiray, on the other hand, described the movie script as smart and witty, and she proudly invited the audience to watch and support the local film industry.
The former Goin’ Bulilit cast member also expressed excitement for having worked with Enchong as her leading man, citing how at times it was challenging especially when the shoots involved intimate love scenes.
Also with Enchong and Kiray in the press conference were supporting actresses Trina Legaspi and Michelle Vito who likewise showed their enthusiasm for the release of Regal Entertainment’s latest picture.
Catch I Love You to Death, directed by Miko Livelo and written by Ash Malanum, opening this July 6, 2016 in cinemas nationwide.
