DIEGO LOYZAGA Is Open To Starring In A Boys' Love Project With MARCO GUMABAO
There's no better time for Diego Loyzaga to restart his career than during the pandemic. “Given all the circumstances that 2020 has brought us, if I will wait for the pandemic to end, baka puti na ang buhok ko or wala na akong buhok. Things out there are not getting better," he said during a press conference, as noted by ABS-CBN News.
The former MYX VJ—who has been on hiatus since 2018—was introduced as the newest contract star of Viva Artists Agency and several projects are already on the pipeline for the 25-year-old. And he's not discounting the possibility of starring in a boys' love or BL series.
"If I have a passion with a certain story, I got hooked, there’s good lesson and it has a good story, I’m game," he said. "It’s just another role or another character. It doesn’t reflect what I really like in life. I’m just doing a job as an artist to portray a role. I will be comfortable as long as it’s not that vulgar. We can work towards that. I think I’ll be comfortable doing that."
Later on, Marco Gumabao's name was brought up as a possible partner in case the actor decides to do a BL project. The two are longtime friends and even co-starred in the 2018 afternoon drama Los Bastardos.
"Marco is pro-love, hindi ako maiilang. He’s a friend, not a rival. I will not say I’m excited to do a boys' love project with Marco, but why not? It’s just a role. It’s a job requirement. That’s work for me. If that’s needed, that’s what we’ll do."
