Starstruck's Sef Cadayona Plays Lead In Three New Indie Films

STARSTRUCK alumnus Sef Cadayona is best known doing the lead role in the series of Cornetto TVCs, for which he has already done nine commercials. He might be playing supporting roles on TV but he now plays the lead role in three new indie films.

In Emmanuel de la Cruz’ “Slumber Party”, he plays a straight guy raped by three gays. This is an entry in the Cinema One Digital Filmfest this November. In Ronnie Bertubin’s “Gayak”, he plays the effeminate son of Allan Paule. “Alam na ng father kong gay ako, but ako yung in denial pa,” he says. “Eventually, magiging fashion designer ako rito.”

His last indie film is still untitled but it’s something right up his alley as it’s about dancing. A good dancer, Sef is excited about this project directed by balikbayan filmmaker from the U.S., Gorio Vicuna, who he says looks like Johnny Depp. “He brought a lot of dancers from the U.S. para makasama ko sa dance sequences in the movie.”

His latest assignment on GMA-7 is “Coffee Prince” that starts airing tonight at 9:30 PM. He plays one of the baristas in Aljur Abrenica’s coffee shop and he is paired with Kim Komatsu, who plays Kris Bernal’s younger sister. “I’m having fun doing this show because I’ve worked with Aljur before in the movie ‘Kontrabida Girl’ and with Kris in ‘Time of My Life’ naman. We’re having fun on the set with Direk Ricky Davao directing us.”

Sef is also mourning the untimely death of his grandpa. “Siya yung nagpalaki sa’kin as I grew up without a dad. He was diagnosed to have cancer then after more than just a week, he passed na kasi masyado ng affected ang other organs niya.” Has he finally seen his dad? “Yes, kinontak niya ko. It turned out we both live in BF Homes Paranaque pala. His name is Dennis Ureta. Yung dad niya, brother ni Ariel Ureta. He has his own family na with two kids who I have yet to meet.”
