Dennis Trillo’s dream for his nine-year old son Calix is to be successful in whatever field he chooses.
He is open to Calix joining showbiz but he would rather see him try other fields.
“Ayaw kong ma-expose siya sa ganitong klaseng trabaho sa murang edad,” he related. “Ayaw kong gusto lang niya dahil nakikita niya ang mga ginagawa ko. Gusto ko bukod dun ma-explore niya ang ibang possibilities or field.”
He is proud though with Calix’s musicality.
“Magaling siyang kumuha ng tono. He plays the drums in his school choir. I taught him the basics in drums,” shared Dennis.
He remembered that when Calix was younger, he asked him what he wanted to be and Calix replied that he wanted to be like him.
“Feeling niya siguro successful ako sa ginagawa ko,” said Dennis. “But I’ll give him time to discover what he really wants to be.”
Busy with his new series “Mulawin Vs. Ravena,” Dennis revealed he always make an effort to find time to be with Calix. In fact he will be joining Calix in Baguio for Father’s Day.
When together, he and his son would usually bond watching movies or playing video games. They also play basketball.
“I make sure we spend quality time together. Lahat ng pwedeng gawin together, sige. Kasi habang lumalaki siya na mas maraming activities na gawin na magkasama, mas masaya,” intimated Dennis.
Fatherhood is also something he uses for his role as Gabriel in “Mulawin Vs. Ravena.” In the Fanta-serye, he is not only a king but a father to a son and daughter.
“Makikita ang tatay side ni Gabriel kapag kasama niya mga anak niya. Makikita na mabait siya sa mga anak niya and ipinapakita niya na mahal na mahal niya and importante sila sa kanya,” he said.
That aspect of his role is easy. The rest has been taxing for Dennis who would always wear a heavy armor, be on a harness, fly and be in fight scenes. Heat is also a factor in making acting with an armor and flying more challenging.
“Sobrang init and madali kaming pawisan lahat. Hangga’t may eksena kang sunod-sunod, suot mo. Pag may break ‘di pwede mong tanggalin. Mahirap din kasing tanggalin,” he said.
As a whole, Dennis is excited with what’s going to happen to his character. Described as a reluctant king, Gabriel for him has many facets which he could develop and showcase in the series.
“Tumatak lang kasi sa mga tao na kapag sinabing Ravena, masamang tao.
That’s what the show will explain in the succeeding episodes,” he hinted. “The character of Gabriel is very close to my heart.”
