First time ever! Hunk actor Sam Milby will play a daring, yet controversial gay role in his new movie, “The Third Party.”
Sam did not hesitate when he found out that he would be portraying a homosexual. Although this will be the first time that Sam would ever act on screen like a gay, his professionalism got the better of him and found no problem with the project.
In the romantic comedy, where he would be working with two of the hottest stars in the industry – Angel Locsin and Zanjoe Marudo, the actor admitted that he felt a bit uneasy and awkward at the start, especially when he and Zanjoe would be doing those gay stuff.
When asked how he felt about his role, he said that the initial feelings of discomfort turned into enjoyment when the two guys finally learned to have fun and just enjoy the roles.
Sam's sexuality has always been a subject of controversy. According to Sam if he is trying to hide something, he wouldn’t take on a role that would only divulge his weaknesses. He also said that he’s comfortable with his sexuality.
According to Sam, new roles always pose a challenge to him, especially his ability as an actor. Although he readily assented to doing the movie, he couldn’t imagine doing something so heavy and serious like “Brokeback Mountain” which has been among the most controversial gay movies of all time.
Sam also said that he doesn’t think that he would be able to act out “Brokeback Mountain’s” romantic scenes with another male individual.
The only rose among the thorns, Angel Locsin, explained that she had a tough time working on the romantic-comedy film as she is more comfortable with heavy drama.
