Aljur Abrenica Plays The Real Life Story Of A Male Prostitute In 'Magpakailanman'

ALJUR ABRENICA is all set to be judged tonight in the “Bayarang Adonis” episode of “Magpakailanman” as he interprets one of the toughest acting assignments in his career: portraying a real life character and another actor at that. This is the dramatization of the life story of Kristoffer King, the indie actor who won the Cinemalaya best actor award for “Oros”.

“Ibinuhos ko na lahat ng natutuhan ko sa acting workshops in this role,” says Aljur. “I’m really thankful na positive na ang nakukuha kong feedback ngayon, starting with my participation in the epicserye, ‘Indio’, as Bagani, an ally of Sen. Bong Revilla who plays the title role. Sabi nila, mas may depth and sincerity na raw ang acting ko.”

He’s positive he’ll give justice to the role of Kristoffer King tonight. “Lumaki siyang hindi deprived pero his life changed when his mom died. Hindi siya natutukan ng ama niya at nalulong sa masamang bisyo. He also became a father at a very young age. To earn a living, naging back up dancer siya then a macho dancer in a gay bar. Then he was discovered in the movies and was introduced in ‘Babae sa Break Water’. Pero kokonti lang offers sa kanya, tapos, yung anak niya, nagkasakit ng Hunter’s Syndrome, so he became a male prostitute. An old maid even offered to take him to America to give him a better life. Very colorful talaga ang buhay niya sa dami ng pinagdaanang challenges. Kasama ko rito si Max Collins as my wife, sa direction ni Maryo J. de los Reyes.”
