Victor Basa on his first gay role: “I don’t want to alienate anybody”
June 21 2013
Behind his chiseled physique and swoon-worthy looks lies a talented actor breaking out of his shell. Known for his work in modeling and a few television appearances, Victor Basa is now ready to push himself to the limits as he plays his first gay role as David in My Husband’s Lover.
My Husband's Lover tells the story of Vincent (Tom Rodriguez) who got his girlfriend Lally (Carla Abellana) pregnant while they were still in college. They decided to get married even if Vincent's mother Elaine (Kuh Ledesma) was very much against it. Thus Lally's married life was never smooth-sailing because of Elaine. But for the love for her husband, Lally endures the hardships in dealing with her mother-in-law.
However, when Lally got pregnant on their second child, Vincent suddenly became distant and cold towards her. Lally felt that Vincent was being unfair to her so she decided to leave together with their children. Vincent loves his kids so much, so he tried to win back his wife by proposing and this time getting married again with a blessing from the church.
Lally and Vincent's married life became better after the church wedding. But unknown to Lally, Vincent is keeping a secret from her - a secret he kept from everyone else ever since he was young.
He is a closeted gay.
He kept his secret hidden for so long, afraid that he'll destroy his family. However, everything changes when he meets Eric (Dennis Trillo) again. Eric was and still Vincent's great love. But unlike Vincent, Eric is openly gay and he is still in love with Vincent as well. Because of their strong feelings for each other, they started having an affair.
Vincent tries to hide the affair from Lally by showering her with gifts and attention. However, Lally's intuition tells her that something is wrong even though everything in her married life seems fine. That's when she started to investigate. She eventually learned of Vincent's darkest secret.
Will Lally give up on her husband or will she fight for her marriage? Will Vincent choose Eric over his family or will he stay with his wife and children?
