Leading the show is Gigger Boys’ other member Enchong Dee. “Kinakabahan ako. Sabi ko nga sa manager ko na kung pwede niya akong samahan dito sa story conference. This is very important to me because this could either make or break my career. I think the fact the nagpunta siya dito all the way from Makati amidst his busy schedule I’m very thankful. Hindi lang sa kanya kung hindi sa lahat and to God most especially. Also with all the people saying na ako ang parang lead dito, nakakakilig talaga.”, said an overwhelming Enchong.
A champion swimmer, Enchong got his first showbiz break in the teen-oriented dramas Abt Ur Luv and Astigs. In the early part of his career, he did several supporting roles and was a member of many ensemble-acting pieces, most notably in Mars Ravelo’s Lastikman, My Girl, and Your Song Presents: My Only Hope. But this time around, Enchong gets to spearhead the cast of Boystown.
It’s a challenge for this 20-year-old actor-athlete to portray Arnel, a short-tempered young man. Enchong said that the story of Boystown will show different kinds of rivalries involving its characters. “Kay Robi may rivalry with girls. Kay Dino may rivalry sa physicality. Rivalry with family naman kay Tita Ana (Roces).”
When asked on how he plans to play Arnel who is very much different from his true personality, Enchong said “Tutal tapos na rin lang ang school pwede ko na siguro ilabas ang lahat ng kalokohan ko (laughs). Siguro I will try my best to play the character in the darkest way I can. In my character makikita mo ‘yung good and bad side.”
