Alden Richards is a Bad Boy

ALDEN RICHARDS considers 2011 as the most unforgettable year in his life. “This is the year that I auditioned for ‘Alakdana’ at nakuha ako agad as one of the leading men,” he says. “Then I did ‘Tween Academy’ and got positive feedback so I’m now in two new movies: ‘The Road’ where I appear in the episode of Rhian Ramos and Louise de los Reyes, and ‘Ang Panday, Ikalawang Aklat’, where I play a member of the dragon family na secretly in love kay Marian Rivera. I’ve also started taping ‘Sundo’ with Dingdong Dantes.”

He finds his role in “The Road” very challenging. “I only have two lines and after that, di na ko magsasalita. Lahat, gestures na lang, eyes, facial expressions. It’s very challenging to play a bad boy, lalo na yung scenes that I torture Rhian and Louise. Game naman sila, okay raw silang masaktan. Sometimes, I get carried away kaya sorry ako ng sorry sa kanila.”

The movie is violent, something like “Texas Chain Saw Massacre”, but Alden uses Anthony Hopkins Oscar-winning performance as Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs” as his peg. “He’s really scary,” he says. Isn’t he worried his fans might be alienated since he’s being built up as a matinee idol-heartthrob? “No, more than anything else, I think this is a good chance for me to show my real worth as an actor.”
