Gabby Eigenmann is excited with new movie Asintado (Between the Eyes)

GABBY EIGENMANN is so lucky. His soap, “Paraiso Ko’y Ikaw” ended on GMA last Friday and yesterday, he started shooting a new movie, “Asintado (Between the Eyes)”. “I’m excited kasi ang tagal ko nang hindi nakagawa ng movie,” he says. “My last was ‘Kimmy Dora’, pero guest role lang as a kidnapper. Dito, mahaba ang role ko as Carias, the drug pusher in our place in Nueva Ecija na gustong patayin ang anak ni Aiko Melendez na si Jake Vargas who worked for me as a drug courier.”

His cousin Geoff Eigenmann is currently controversial. It’s said he’s having problems with his relationship with Carla Abellana and Aljur Abrenica is sore at him for wooing Kylie Padilla. “Naku, I might be accused na nakikisawsaw ako diyan, but all of us Eigenmann guys are taught how to respect other people’s affairs,” he says. “So hindi ako naniniwalang nag-attempt ang pinsan ko na manulot. We’re told not to make our lives difficult and complicated. Friends kami nina Kylie dahil nakikita namin siya ni Geoff sa gym. Kaya natuwa nga kami nang magkatrabaho sila in ‘Adarna’, but we never expected na magkakaroon ng mga ganyang issue. About Geoff and Carla, alam ko, okay na sila dahil magkasama pa sila sa dinner noong mismong birthday ni Geoff.”

Gabby has won an acting award on TV for “Munting Heredera”, but he has yet to win an award for movies, unlike his brother Sid Lucero who has won quite a lot. Here’s wishing him his role as Carias in “Asintado” would win him his first acting award for the big screen.

“With the help of Direk Louie Ignacio, I promise to give my all in this movie. Abangan nyo dahil magta-taong putik ako sa movie at doon sa eksenang yun mangyayari ang madugong climax ng pelikula,” he beams with pride.
