How do you feel about this story?


Enrique Gil opens up about exploring uncharted territories and how his comedy film “I Am Not Big Bird” became the perfect project for his acting comeback in the digital cover of Metro Man.

After taking some time away from the spotlight, Enrique revealed that he had worries about his comeback but still pushed himself to take risks and show off his range as an actor.

“It’s also okay to be scared and take chances sometimes ’cause you know, I was playing safe and sometimes it gets a little boring. So sabi ko sa sarili ko, ‘how are you going to take a different route?’ Hopefully, the artists will get inspired and would want to venture out into different things,” he said in his exclusive Metro Man feature.

As an avid comedy fan, Enrique was eager to portray the role of Luis Carpio in “I Am Not Big Bird” which is different from his well-known leading man roles.

“‘I Am Not Big Bird’ just reminded me of Hangover and all these movies that I love watching, kasi mahilig ako sa comedy. In my wildest dreams, I would never imagine that a film like this would be coming out to the viewers here, but we took a chance. We did it and I’m super happy and proud that we did. I’m just happy that I got to do a full-blown comedy that I’ve always wanted to do,” he shared.

The Kapamilya actor is not afraid of failure as he continues to aim for bigger, bolder, and better projects.

He said, “Back then, I was like, ‘No, I don’t think this is going to happen.’ Parang it felt so out-of-the-box or out of me but then, realizing it, ‘No, that’s really me, e.’ So I’m just doing what I want to do and hopefully, people will enjoy it and are happy about it.”
