ROCCO Nacino never expected that his role in “Pamilya Roces” as the two-timing husband of Carla Abellana would be his most daring role so far. He is frequently shown in various stages of undress and he also figures in bed scenes with Sophie Albert as the sexy Amber. Doesn’t his non-showbiz GF Melissa Gohing get jealous with dalliance with Sophie?
“Since she’s still in the process of understanding my kind of world as an actor, it took a lot of talking and explaining to her,” he says. “But I really praise her for always being so patient and understanding with the requirements of my job. After all, secure naman siyang this is just work for me at siya 'yung totoo.”
How far is he willing to go in doing sexy scenes? “Sa ‘Pamilya Roces’, we all know it’s a TV show so may limitations pa rin. Sa movie, it really depends on the kind of project that will be offered to me and the director who’ll handle the sexy scene. Hindi madaling gumawa ng sexy scenes so you should be sure that the project is really worth it and the director is someone who’s truly talented and you can trust.”
He’s very naughty in “Pamilya Roces”. Is he also naughty in real life? “Well, I just want to keep it a secret, for it to remain a mystery. Ha ha ha!”
What can he say about the performance of Sophie as Amber? “She just amazed me kasi from the first day of shoot pa lang, nakuha na niya agad ang character na hinahanap ni Direk Joel Lamangan for Amber. She’s very professional and serious with her craft, diving into the portrayal of her character without any reservations, even sa relationship nila ng character kong si Hugo kahit na we have never worked together before. We really made sure na may rapport kami to establish the relationship of the characters we play, Hugo and Amber. Noong una, nagkakailangan pa kami sa bed scenes, but now, we’re very comfortable in nailing these kinds of scenes. And it really feels good to be part of a good series like ‘Pamilya Roces’ na puro magagaling ang mga kasama mo. You have no choice but to also give your best in each and every scene.”
