ARRON VILLAFLOR has been doing one project after since he signed up with Viva Artists Agency middle of last year. He was quickly cast in two 8-part mini-series, “Huwag Mong Agawin ang Akin” with Angeli Khang and in “Secrets of a Nympho” with Rhen Escano. 

Now, he is in a new movie with Christine Bermas, “Night Bird”. So what is his role?  

“Barkada kami rito nina Sid Lucero and Felix Roco,” he says. “We’re partners in crime. 

'Sa mga bar, we befriend girls then we put drugs in their drinks, then dinadala namin sa bahay ni Mark Anthony Fernandez where we do anything and everything we want with them.” 

Things go south when one of the girls that they get to drug and rape is Rachel, played by Christine Bermas. 

Rachel is with her two other friends, Chloe Jenna and Alexa Ocampo, both also brutally violated. When Christine regains consciousness, she then plans to take revenge on their rapists and tormentors. 

In all his Vivamax projects, Arron willingly disrobes in front of the camera showing his entire backside. 

Does he have any regrets doing his transformation from being a wholesome actor to a daring one?  

“None, no regrets at all.  Pinag-isipan ko namang mabuti muna talaga ito. 

"Na-depress din kasi ako nung wala akong ginagawa at the height of the pandemic, for almost two years. 

"I started in showbiz when I was a teenager sa Star Circle Quest and I’ve had my share of doing teenybopper roles. 

"So kailan pa ako magta-transition to more matures role, kapag 40 na ako?” 

He consulted his family and friends who told him that if he’d do daring roles, it would be just part of his growth as an actor. 

“So I felt that this is the right age, the right time and the right venue with Viva who can help me graduate sa young roles that I used to do. 

"And honestly, I’m enjoying it now. 2022, the year that I signed up with Viva, has been a good year for me. I look forward to doing more good and challenging projects with them this 2023.” 

Since he’s been doing nothing but butt exposure, would he later be willing to do frontal nudity?

“OK lang to do frontal nudity kung kailangan talaga sa eksena, sabi nga ng more veteran actors, lets do it. 

"But I’m praying na sana huwag muna, kasi wala na akong ipapakita, wala ng excitement. 

"So I’m praying wag muna ako mapunta sa ganoong sitwasyon kasi I can do other things naman na ikakatuwa pa rin ng tao, like act in more demanding roles.”

How is it playing a bad guy in “Night Bird”?

“I’m super proud of the work I’ve done sa Vivamax kasi it’s shows a different kind of me. 

"Dati, puro good boy roles lang ako, but now, first time ko to play a rapist in a very rough and dark movie. 

"It’s good to work with a director like Direk Law Fajardo who listens to his actors and tries to incorporate our suggestions sa scene.”  

He stresses that “Night Bird” is not just a typical sex and violence movie. 

“The movie has a good message for women. It warns them to be careful kasi these days, you never can tell if some guys would take advantage of you. 

"And for the guys, wag nyo gayahin ang characters namin dito nina Mark, Sid and Felix. Don’t force yourself sa mga babae. 

"Dapat kung may mangyari man sa inyo, it’s with the consent of both parties. Otherwise, you have to pay a price.”
