Dominic Roco on 'Magkano Ba Ang Pag-ibig?': This could be one of the most challenging roles ever

Isa sa hindi malilimutang pagganap ni Dominic Roco ay sa indie film na Ang Nawawala na Cinemalaya Film Festival entry last year. Sa pelikula, gumanap si Dominic bilang si Gibson Bonifacio, karakter na tumigil sa pagsasalita dahil sa pinagdaanang trauma.

Naging usap-usapan ang pagganap ni Dominic sa naturang role, kung saan puros action at gestures ang basehan ng kanyang acting, at wala halos dialogue.

Ang nakuhang experience sa naturang indie film ay makabubuti naman para sa upcoming show ni Dominic, ang Magkano Ba Ang Pag-ibig? Makakasama niya sa soap na ito sina Heart Evangelista, Sid Lucero at Celia Rodriguez.

Sa afternoon serye, gaganap si Dominic bilang ang autistic son ng karakter ni Celia Rodriguez. “Siguro for me this could be one of the most challenging roles ever na gagawin ko. One of my dream roles din ‘to eh. It’s either autism or crazy, parang ganon. Medyo ibang klaseng Dominic ang makikita ninyo. I think very mellow, very small tao,” sabi ni Dominic.

Maski challenging ay masayang masaya naman si Dominic sa ibinigay sa kanyang role. “Wala pa akong masyadong nakikita na gumagawa ng ganitong role,” ayon sa binata.

Isa ang character ni Dominic sa mga dapat abangan sa teleserye pagka’t sa kanya halos iikot ang buong istorya – kung paano gagalaw ang mga tao sa kanyang paligid nang dahil sa sensitibo niyang kalagayan.

Sa edad na 24, at matapos mahasa sa marami nang serye gaya ng Indio, Makapiling Kang Muli, Broken Vow at Legacy, talagang hinog na hinog na nga ang aktor para sa kanyang first lead role sa telebisyon.

Ngayong nakamit na niya ang isa sa kanyang dream roles, may isa pa raw sa kanyang listahan ang gusto niyang matupad.

“Maynila [Sa Kuko ng Liwanag], bucket list ko ‘yon,” kwento ni Dominic. Ang tinutukoy ni Dominic ang pagre-remake ng unang pelikulang pinagbidahan ng kanyang ama at veteran actor na si Bembol Roco. Umani si Bembol ng papuri nang dahil sa obrang ito ni Direk Lino Brocka. Sa katunayan, hindi lamang sa Pilipinas napanood ang naturang critically-acclaimed film. Nitong Mayo lang ay ipinalabas ito sa Cannes International Film Festival sa France. “For me, that was my Dad’s best performance and gusto kong subukan,” pagtatapos ni Dominic.

Hindi naman nalalayo sa posibilidad ang pangarap na ito ni Dominic dahil sa ibinibigay niyang dedikasyon at maturity sa pag-arte. Abangan siya sa kanyang pagganap bilang si Jay Villasanta sa Magkano Ba Ang Pag-ibig? simula sa September 30 sa Afternoon Prime ng GMA.
