ARRON VILLAFLOR was discovered in the Star Circle Quest when he was a teenager in 2004. 

He did a lot of soaps where he played mostly supporting roles. On the big screen, he is best known for his role as a young journalist who appears in both historical dramas, “Heneral Luna” and “Heneral Goyo”. 

He’s turning 32 this July and as such, he is definitely ready to play more mature roles. 

He is glad that Vivamax now got him to play the important role of Ryan in Director Mac Alejandre’s 8-part sex-drama series, “Wag Mong Agawin ang Akin”.

“I am thankful to Vivamax for this opportunity to work with them,” he says. 

“I am excited but a bit nervous kasi I was last seen in ‘Probinsyano’ two years ago at di ko nga alam kung bakit ako naalis doon. 

"Now, I’m so grateful na may panibagong blessing from Vivamax and I promise to do my best in this series. Na-miss ko talagang umarte.”

He plays a villainous character in “Wag Agawin”. 

“Yes, medyo kupal ang character ko and I like it, para maiba naman sa mga dati kong ginagawa. 

"Mai-in love ako rito kay Jamilla Obispo who plays Christine and dahil sa obsession ko sa kanya, gagawin ko ang lahat to make sure na mapapasa akin siya. My parents here are Yayo Aguila and Julio Diaz."

It’s his first time to work with his director and co-stars. 

“But I see no problem, kasi I’m very collaborative and I always listen to the director, so I look forward to working with everyone.” 

Since the series is about an escort girl, is it possible for him to fall in love with one in real life? 

“Mahirap magsalita nang patapos, e. Sa buhay naman, we are sometimes surprised ng mga bagay na hindi natin ine-expect, so malay natin? And I don’t want to judge yung work ninuman, kahit na escort girl pa siya.”  

Since their show’s title is “Wag Mong Agawin ang Akin”, has there ever been an instance in his life that someone snatched something away from him? 

“Yes, naagawan na rin ako in real life. Masakit siya, mahirap. But then, you learn na hindi siguro kayo nag-match talaga sa isa’t isa, sa mga trip nyo. 

"So best thing to do is mag-move on ka na lang. It’s part of growing up, you just have to take it as a lesson in life.”

If there is something in you that no one can steal, what will it be? 

“Yung feeling of hope. Kasi I’m the kind of person na hindi nawawalan ng hope. Right now, I’m just thankful that I’m still alive after the pandemic. 

"Sa dami ng nawalan ng mahal sa buhay, nagpapasalamat ako na I’m still here and I survived. Mahal ko itong trabaho ko at nagpapasalamat akong may nakukuha pa akong projects.”

This is the first time he’s going daring, how far would he go? 

“Siempre, Vivamax ito, so dapat, ready ka. Pero abangan nyo na lang. Basta I will surprise the viewers. 

"I know this will open new doors for me and I’m willing to give what Direk Mac will ask from me.”
