“Mahirap kasi tanggihan ang My Husband’s Lover,” said Tom in an interview with Journal.
Tom is talking about an upcoming show where he will be playing a role as a gay husband along with Dennis Trillo and Carla Abellana.
He also said that he had a tearful goodbye with his co-stars in “Be Careful With My Heart” where he plays as Jeff.
“Nagpaalam naman ako nang maayos, nag-iyakan nga ang co-stars ko on my last taping day with them. Pinalabas na lang na nag-abroad ang character ko,” said Tom.
Tom, who auditioned for the role in My Husband’s Lover, said that he just can’t let the opportunity pass.
“This is a lot of firsts for me. First soap ko sa GMA, first time ko to work with Carla, Dennis and Director Dom, first time ko to play a gay character. I really like the script which is very well written and I couldn’t just let it pass. I’m proud and honored to be part of the show.”
In My Husband’s Lover, Tom will play Vincent, a discreet gay who is married to Lally played by Carla Abellana. He will be having an affair with Eric, an architect played by Dennis Trillo.
Tom also revealed that he has been doing a lot of preparations for the role and insisted that he and Dennis should have a kissing scene.
“To be good in my role, I did a lot of research on my own and I found out that homosexual love is not really different from a heterosexual one. Gay lang sila but the feelings of loving and caring for the loved one are the same,” added Tom.
