Sam Milby Says His Crush On KC Concepcion Never DevelopedAdmitting that he had a crush on KC Concepcion years ago, Sam Milby said they just decided to become friends since nothing ever developed between the two of them.
The actor-singer said Concepcion, the daughter of Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion, has always been there for him. As for his kissing scene with her on ABS-CBN teleserye "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala," Milby said he had to prepare for it.
“Siyempre, sinong lalaki ang magrereklamo na... I mean, di ba? Na nahihirapan sa eksena na naghahalikan kayo? Hindi ako nailang kasi this is not the first time naman na we have worked together. There was a time na we are very close.”
They were paired together on the film "Forever And A Day" in 2011.
Milby will be portraying something different from his usual role in "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala." Here, he is Eros, a rich businessman who had to marry Anessa (Judy Ann Santos) for the gains of his company.
Once they were married, he will physically, emotionally and mentally abuse her. He will also be heavily involved with Alexis (Concepcion), his childhood friend, while he is married to Anessa.
Milby said he doesn't expect anything, except some extreme reactions from the viewers--some may hate or pity him. If this happens, it means his acting was effective.
“You have to take a risk. You have to take something out of character kasi it’s the only way you can prove your potential."
He mentioned Heath Ledger as his idol for portraying The Joker in "The Dark Knight." Milby said in that character, the late Hollywood actor showed versatility in accepting a role so different from the usual.
He was nervous during the special screening of the teleserye's pilot episode at the Resorts World Manila, Milby admitted. He said he cannot remember the scenes they took if they were okay or not.
Meanwhile, Milby expressed how honored he feels for being handpicked by Santos herself. Reports said the Teleserye Queen personally asked Milby and Concepcion to be part of her comeback teleserye.
“Sana nga lang ay hindi ako madi-disappoint. Hindi ko siya madi-disappoint—kay Juday, sa management, sa tao. I’m challenged by myself. I’m challenged by the management, kay Juday."
During his scenes with Santos, Milby said he just wanted to prove himself that she didn't make the wrong decision when she chose him. He also said he is serious with his craft, and wants to further enhance his acting chops.
When it comes to his Tagalog, the singer-actor said he is more confident now. Milby added he is the worst critic of himself because he can be a perfectionist at times.
