Ryan Agoncillo's Advice To Wally Bayola About Sex Video Scandal

THIS IS A VERY exciting time for lovers of local films. Today is the start of the Sineng Pambansa All Masters Edition featuring the good works of some outstanding filmmakers, shown without censorship at all SM Cinemas at a discounted ticket price of only P100. So far, we’ve seen four entries: “Lihis” by Joel Lamangan, “Tag-araw ni Twinkle” by Gil Portes, “Lauriana” by Mel Chionglo and “Ano ang Kulay ng mga Nakalimutang Pangarap” by Jose Javier Reyes and they’re all well acted, certainly all worth watching.

The premiere night of “Ano ang Kulay” at the SM Megamall last Monday night was the first public appearance of Ryan Agoncillo after his bout with dengue fever and pneumonia. His wife Judy Ann Santos came with him. We got the chance to interview him before the film was shown and he says all meetings about offers to him from various networks were put on hold after he got sick. It so happened that his wife is also in the midst of negotiations as to which network she’d choose to sign up with. Does this mean he’s going to where Juday will go?

“No, we have independent careers,” he says. “Hopefully, matuloy na ang meetings about my career plans ngayong magaling na ako. Maraming career opportunities, but we have to choose very carefully kung anong pipiliin namin. But I’m taking my time bago bumalik sa trabaho, kasi hinihingal pa rin ako pag nagsasalita. This is also the reason why I’m still taking a break from hosting sa ‘Eat Bulaga’. By next Monday na ako babalik doon.”

He’s not the only one missing in “Eat Bulaga” these days. What can he say to Wally Bayola after the sex video scandal of Wally with EB Babe Yosh? “I just hope he’s okay with his wife, his family. As a member of the Dabarkads, ang pakiusap ko lang, kung anuman ang pinagdaraanan niya ngayon, sana huwag na lang tayo basta manghusga at makialam.”

He’s happy that he was able to finish shooting “Ano ang Kulay” before he got sick. “It’s a very personal movie for Direk Joey. It’s his tribute to old people. Noon pa niya ito naikuwento sa akin as one of his dream projects and I’m glad to be a part of it ngayong natupad na niyang gawin ito.”

How was it working with the 84-year old award-winning actress, Rustica Carpio, as their family’s yaya for 60 years who later has nowhere else to go to when all the members of the family chose to live abroad?

“Ang lambot ng kamay niya, yun ang una kong napansin. May scene kasi na hinawakan ko siya sa kamay at sobrang lambot talaga ng kamay niya. She’s very good in this movie at maraming paiiyakin ang pelikulang ito.”
