Tom Rodriguez Will Venture Into Doing Short Animated Films Now That 'The Cure' Is On Its Final Week

TOM RODRIGUEZ says he will miss the action scenes he’s been doing in “The Cure” now that it is on its final week. “I really enjoyed this show as it gave me the chance to do stunts and fight scenes na hindi mo basta magagawa sa dramas or romcoms,” he says. “Mahirap gawin ito, but it’s a lot of fun.”

So what’s he gonna do after “The Cure” ends? “I’m, in a new horror movie, ‘Maledicto’, and I’m also finishing a short animated film kasi may expo rito for animators in October and I want to be part of that event.”

He says there was a similar event held here last year but he was so busy then he didn’t get to attend it. “So, sana maka-attend ako this year kasi animators ng Disney and Dreamworks will be coming here and I want to meet them in person. I’ve been following them sa youtube for a long time now at hopefully, may mabuo akong short animated film of my own na puede kong ipakita sa kanila and they can critique it, say what they feel about it.”

So is he branching out into a new career as an animator? “No naman. Kasi animation is something you can do anywhere then you just send your work to them. May Filipino artists na who work for companies like Marvel na dito pa rin based. I’m just really fascinated by animation work.”

And what can viewers from “The Cure” expect from watching it on its last few days? “Naku, marami. Maraming-maraming exciting incidents na mangyayari, mga twists at action-packed sequences so dapat huwag bumitaw ang viewers kasi talagang very thrilling ang last few episodes. Malalaman na rin nila finally kung sino yung title ng pelikula, The Cure, na siya palang makakagamot sa virus ng lumaganap na epidemya. At tiyak na ikagugulat nila yun, so don’t miss that very intriguing revelation and the action-packed finale.”

About him and his inamorata Carla Abellana, Tom says he’s pretty sure she’s the girl he wants to take in front of the altar. “But we don’t know yet when the wedding will take place,” he says. “Naghahanda pa kasi kaming mabuti. We’ve already bought a lot where we will build our dream house. Siguro, we’ll wait until mapatayuan muna namin yun ng bahay where we can start our own family.”
