GOLD ACERON got good reviews for his performance as the horny Peeping Tom in “Scorpio Nights 3” who has to run for his life when Mark Anthony Fernandez discovered him in bed with wife Christine Bermas. 

He similarly got positive feedback for his portrayal of the dying young gay in “May December January”. 

He now plays another important role in “Boso Dos” to be shown on February 3, helmed by Jon Red, who also directed the first “Boso” movie in 2005.

“This is my most challenging role so far,” he says. “Kasi dati, laging bata ang role ko, teenager. 

"But here, I play a mature role as a young undercover cop assigned to spy on a drug den led by Vince Rillon. So dapat akong mag-project ng pagiging pulis na ngayon ko lang nagawa.”

Has he seen “Boso 1” starring Epy Quizon as the “mamboboso” or Peeping Tom?  

“Yes, I did, pero ibang iba na ang story ng ‘Boso Dos’. Si Kuya Epy, naninilip lang sa butas sa dingding. 

"Dito, we spy on the drug dealers using modern technology like CCTV cameras, so this is a Boso movie for today’s generation of young people.”

In the story, he has a girlfriend, Chloe Jenna, but when a new recruit joins them, Micaella Raz, he falls in love with her also. 

But Micaella also has an affair with Vince Rillon who he has to seduce to get into his good graces.  How is it working with Direk Jon Red?

“I didn’t really know Direk Jon Red, pero sa story con pa lang, I saw na ibang klase pala siya. 

'May kakaibang sense of humor siya na hindi nagpapatawa, pero matatawa ka. 

"First time ko rin to work with most of the cast members and I really enjoyed working with all of them.”

Jon Red is writer-director of the film while his brother Raymond Red is the cinematographer and another brother, Danny Red, is the production designer. 

So how is it working with the Red Brothers?

“It was nice working with the Red Brothers kasi parang kapamilya ang turing nila sa aming lahat sa set. 

"After each shooting day, we meet, kwentuhan and we talk about what we did. Sobrang nakakatuwa. 

"It really helped us bond well with each other, kaya naman we all felt sad nang matapos na ang buong shoot kasi naging maganda talaga ang samahan namin.” 

He has sexy scenes with both Micaella Raz and Chloe Jenna. How daring are they? 

“Well, they are not as intense as what I did in ‘Scorpio Nights 3’. The love scenes here are more intimate, more tender. 

"It helps that I feel so comfortable with both Mica and Chloe. They both give their own suggestions on how we can do our scenes together. 

"Lalo na si Chloe who plays my girlfriend. We really feel so close na parang naghaharutan lang kami sa set.”

Since their movie is “Boso”, has her ever experienced making “boso” as a Peeping Tom? 

“No. hindi pa ako namboso, pero kung ako ang bobosohan, okay lang sa akin. Wala namang mawawala sa akin.”

There’s talk that some quarters are complaining about the risque scenes in Vivamax movies and this is the reason why it’s said their directors have been told to tone down their sexy scenes. 

How does he feel about it? 

“Kung ito-tone down ang movies ng Vivamax, okay lang sa akin. Ako naman, kahit ano, game ako as an actor. 

"Bahala na ang director kung ito-tone down nila. Basta kung ano ang dapat na ipagawa sa akin ng direktor para sa ikagaganda ng movie, okay lang sa akin, I will do it.”
