Ex-Bold Actor Leandro Baldemor Recalls His ST Flicks With Seiko's Sexpots

LEANDRO BALDEMOR was one of the ST Kings of Seiko Films in the mid-90s and his sexy posters was the favorite centrefold of sexy magazines then. He was paired with the likes of Rosanna Roces, Priscilla Almeda and Nini Jacinto in one sexy flick after another, like “Sariwa”, “Patikim ng Pinya”, “Tukso, Layuan Mo Ako”, “Pisil”.

“I was only 18 when I started doing those sexy flicks,” he says at the presscon of “My BFF”. “I was with Seiko for four years, until I was 22. Then I did movies with other companies until I was 24. Then nawala ang sexy movies. I went to Japan, pabalik-balik ako roon for several years. Now, 38 na ako, and I’m glad nabigyan ako ng chance ng GMA to do TV drama with them. Before this, kasama rin ako sa ‘Inamorata’ as Rita Avila’s second husband.”

In “My BFF”, he plays Manilyn Reynes’ best friend. “Friend ko sila pareho ni Janno Gibbs noong high school days pa namin in the story,” he says. “Pero kay Janno siya napunta. Nang maghiwalay sila dahil kay Valerie Concepcion, hindi ako umalis sa side ni Manilyn para tulungan siya.”

It’s said Keempee de Leon was the original choice for the role. “Okay lang. I don’t mind being second choice. Ang importante, sa’kin napunta yung role. And I’m glad kasi puede itong panoorin ng mga bata. I’m married and have three kids aged 14, 5 and 4, so puede nila itong panoorin.”
