Kirby De Jesus, not afraid of gay roles

KIRBY De Jesus is part of Starstruck 2. He feels sad that he has not been assigned any project by GMA-7 for sometime now. “Buti na lang po nakatapos ako ng isang bagong movie, ‘Paupahan (Crossroads)’ at ’yung mga nakapanood, pinupuri po ang acting ko,” he says. “I play the gay adopted son of Kuya Germs and I’m obsessively in love with Joseph Bitangcol. I will do anything for him kaya pati ’yung gold necklace na souvenir kay Kuya Germs ng dating lover niya, binigay ko sa kanya kaya Kuya Germs got mad at me. When he wanted to have a cellphone, nagnakaw pa ako ng cellphone para iregalo lang sa kanya.”

Is this the first time he plays a gay role? “No. I also played a bading in ‘I Luv New York’, the last teleserye I did with GMA na gay best friend ako ni Jennylyn Mercado. Tapos, sa Saturday drama anthology, ‘Maynila’, nag-bading na rin ako. But my portrayal of gay roles there is very light, pang-comedy, parang palaru-laro lang. Hindi kagaya sa ‘Paupa-han’ na seryoso ang atake. I’m sure na lahat ng mga bading na nabaliw sa lalaki, makaka-identify sa role ko rito kasi ’yung totoong feelings ng isang bading ang ipinakita namin dito, like when he felt so hurt nang kaliwain siya ng lover niya.”

Isn’t he afraid he might be typecast with gay roles? “Not really. Marami namang nagba-bading pero hindi naman negative ang epekto sa career nila. The important thing is you’re able to play your role convincingly.”
