HINDI PROBLEMA KAY Sid Lucero kung bida-kontrabida ang role na ginagampanan niya sa bawat proyekto. Galing sa pag-arte ang naging puhunan niya kaya mabilis ang kanyang pagsikat. Hindi rin pala ganu’n kadali para sa binata ang gumanap ng iba’t ibang character sa TV at pelikula.
“If you are a good guy, ‘yung sinasabi nilang bida… may kuwan siya. He can’t really explore as much as you can as a bad guy. Siyempre, kailangang tanggapin ng audience na okey itong good guy. Sanay sila sa akin na ang role ko, bad guy. Tapos, lagi nilang sinasabi sa akin bagay akong maging bad guy. Of course, I take it as a challenge, I’ll do it the best I can. I don’t care what role I take. It doesn’t matter if panghapon itong Magkano Ang Iyong Dangal? with Bangs Garcia. I don’t mind if pang-primetime pa ito. It doesn’t matter if I play support or bida, I love my job!
“That’s why it becomes a challenge. That’s what makes it hard. I don’t know how to begin.. going above? Making them accept me as a bida? I really thought of accepting bida-kontrabida role because my goal is to do my part the best possible. Ang sakit nang industriya natin, type-casting, right? ‘Pag nararamdaman ko na nata-type casting na ako, ayoko nu’n. So, I’ll try to take something that is far of different as what I’m usually taking. Kung magustuhan man nila o hindi, hindi ko na iniisip ‘yun during the shoot. Siyempre, pag-uwi ko sa bahay parang iniisip ko, did I do it right? As much as possible, hindi ko dapat iniisip ‘yun kasi, maaapektuhan nga ‘yung performance,” pahayag ng magaling na actor.
Saan nanggagaling ang galing at husay ni Sid sa pagarte? “I’ll try to be as honest as possible. At the same time, I’ll try to make different as possible pero mas nahihirapan akong gawing iba kasi, being really honest, it has to come from me. What I try to do… different parts of me and put it together so that it’s totally different from the last character I played but it’s still me. At the same time, alam mo ‘yun, ang hirap i-explain. Hindi ikaw, pero I used my personal experiences.”
How does it feel doing love scenes with Bangs Garcia? “We have intimate scenes. For me, kissing is already a love scene, it’s just like any other scene. I find her very attractive, it’s hard not to be attracted to her. Physically and the way she carries herself as a person… in fact, in the more the way she looks, I think. That’s what gives you the X-factor, how she carries herself, I find it very-very appealing,” papuring sabi niya..
Sa mga intimate scene nina Sid at Bangs, hindi kaya sila nagkailangan sa isa’t isa? “I don’t know about her, I’m speaking for myself. The ilang part comes in when I’m trying to keep her as comfortable with me as possible. ‘Yun na nga, kailangang give and take. Kung ako, okey lang ako and then ‘yun pala she’s not! If she’s sensitive to that, It’s not going to work so, before all this intimacy, we even talk about it… we can do it! Eversince that day, we’ve been friends, I love it!”
Crush or paghanga sa kapwa niya artista? “The crush is easy, I have crush here and there… but my heart’s telling me, no! Because professionalism is very important and that’s the boundary you should never cross.”
May policy kaya si Sid na never ma-inlove sa kanyang leading lady? “You know, it shouldn’t be but if I say that it’s a policy, that means that I try not to. Professionalism talaga.
Very vocal si Sid sa relationship nila ni Rocie na girlfriend niya for 6 years. “She’s Laurel Delgado, family of artists… politician, a film major, 25 years old. She’s my best friend… see each other as friends first before lovers. We can talk anything down the line. Of course, we don’t wanna display in public, it’s something private. A lot of people notice nga na were really good friends…” aniya.
