Vince Rillon, speechless after his win at the 19th Asian Film Festival in Rome

Recalling what happened during the event, the 23-year-old actor said he was grateful to just be part of it. 

19th Asian Film Festival “Best Actor” Vince Rillon was on cloud nine after realizing on Monday, April 18, that he now has an international award.

He won the award in Rome, Italy for his work in Brillante Mendoza’s Resbak, with the filmmaker also receiving a lifetime achievement award by the Roma Lazio Film Commission.



In the virtual media conference for his upcoming sexy-action film Kaliwaan, Rillon admitted he did not feel anything up until his return to the Philippines.

“Opo, natutuwa po ako. Noong nasa Rome ako hindi ko na-feel. So no’ng umuwi ako dito sa Pilipinas doon ko lang naramdaman na ang sarap pala. Speechless po kasi ako noong araw na iyon eh, no’ng nando’n ako sa Rome, Italy, nanalo ako. Hindi ako makapaniwala. Parang hindi ko ma-explain yung nararamdaman ko na saya. So ngayon ko lang po nafi-feel na napaka-blessed ko nung araw na iyon.”

Recalling what happened during the event, the 23-year-old actor said he was grateful to just be part of it. 

It was indeed a surprise for him and Mendoza—who only wore casual attire to the event.

“Then maya-maya, tinawag na ang pangalan ko. Hindi ako prepared at hindi ko inaasahan iyon. So mas lalo akong natuwa noong tinawag yung pangalan ko. Nagulat din si direk.

“Nahiya din po ako sa suot ko dahil nakapantalon lang ako, simpleng damit lang din,” he shared.

In future projects as an internationally-acclaimed actor Rillon stressed that despite receiving recognition, he is still willing to commit as a sexy actor.

“Porke’t nanalo ako nang award eh may limitation, wala po. Para sa akin wala po. Nag-eenjoy po ako na gumawa ng mga pelikula. Kung ikakaganda ng pelikula ay sex scene, why not. Ayun pa rin po ako, hindi magbabago, tuloy pa rin,” explained the actor.

He still enjoys being a sexy actor, with hopes of having an action movie soon.

“Sa akin po, mga gusto kong gawin, maraming-marami pa. Parang gusto ko action, ganiyan. And then ito pong pagpapa-sexy, itong mga ginagawa kong sexy movie, nae-enjoy ko pa naman po.”

The sexy actor added, “In the future, hindi ko pa po naiisip ngayon iyon eh. Kahit ano po tinatanggap ko ngayon, ina-absorb ko palang po talaga. Kung ano yung ibinibigay sa akin na project, lahat ‘yon, oo lang ako nang oo gano’n po.”

In Kaliwaan, Rillon is paired with one of Viva’s most-sought sexy stars, AJ Raval, causing him to be awkward at first.

“Ako po, nahihiya po ako sa kanya. Naramdaman niya iyon. Natutuwa ako kay AJ dahil sinasabi niya na nararamdaman niyang, ‘nahihiya ka ba sa’kin? Halika dito!’ May mga ganoon kami doon. So nagke-kwentuhan kami, so naging mapalagay ako sa kanya. Iba pala siya kapag totoong kausap, yung personal na. Napakagaan niyang katrabaho, mabait pa,” he revealed.



The movie also includes Denise Esteban, Mark Anthony Fernandez, Felix Artadi Rocco, and Juami Gutierrez. It is directed by Daniel Palacio and will premiere on April 29.
