Khalil Ramos Stars In A Cinema One Entry About The Sexual Awakening Of A Confused High School Teener

KHALIL RAMOS, “Pilipinas Got Talent” runner up, also has an offbeat role like Jasmine Curtis Smith in his own Cinema One Originals entry, “2 Cool 2 B 4Gotten”. As one writer puts its: “Kung katomboyan ang kay Jasmine, kabadingan naman ang kay Khalil.”

The movie’s script is written by Jason Laxamana and directed by Petersen Vargas (son of Evelyn). A coming of age story about a sad and lonely boy in high school, Khalil plays Felix, whose life changes when he meets two balikbayan Fil-Am boys, Jameson Blake of PBB and Ethan Salvador, son of former actor Emil Sandoval.

“The role is very challenging,” he says. “First time ko to play such a character na confused and will question his gender. But I enjoyed it, masaya naman.”

He’s 20 in real life but he plays a 16-year old boy in the movie, and he looks it. Does he have love scenes with Jameson and Ethan? “May sexual tension ang scenes namin, very sensitive, but not to the extreme. Panoorin nyo na lang. Basta, pinag-aagawan nila ako. Ha ha ha!”

Khalil has done a lot of movies since he joined “Pilipinas Got Talent” in 2011. He was in “She’s Dating the Gangster”, “Shake Rattle & Roll 15”, “Kid Kulafu”, “A Second Chance”, “Honor Thy Father”, “Everything About Her”, and “Achy Breaky Hearts”. Aside from “2 Cool 2 B 4Gotten”, he’s in two more new movies: “Bloody Crayons”, a horror movie, and “Babae Sa Septic Tank 2”, a comedy starring Eugene Domingo which is an entry in the coming Metro-Manila Filmfest and where he replaces the role of JM de Guzman in the original. Cinema One Filmfest will start on November 14 at Trinoma, Gateway, Glorietta, Greenhills and Cinematheque.
