Dennis Trillo bagged the Best Actor Award at the recently concluded 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival Gabi ng Parangal last December 27.


The Kapuso actor won the award for his convincing performance in “One Great Love,” Regal Entertainment, Inc.’s entry to this year’s MMFF. “One

Great Love” was also awarded the Third Best Picture and Best Musical Score by Miguel Mendoza.

On Instagram, Dennis expressed his gratitude to Regal’s matriarch, Mother Lily Monteverde, for giving him another opportunity to showcase his acting skills. He also thanked his co-stars—Kim Chiu, JC de Vera, Marlo Mortel and Miles Ocampo—for putting all their hearts to the movie. He also thanked their director, Eric Quizon, for the guidance.

Dennis wrote: “Labing apat na taon mula noong ako’y unang nakatanggap ng ganitong parangal, para sa pelikulang ‘Aishite Imasu 1941’ directed by Joel Lamangan, na siya ring pinaka-una kong pelikulang nagawa sa buong buhay ko. Salamat po Mother Lily sa pagtitiwala noon pa man, hinding hindi ko po yun makakalimutan.”

“Taos puso din ang aking pasasalamat kay Miss Kim Chiu, JC de Vera, Marlo Mortel, at Miles Ocampo. Lahat ay magagaling at seryoso sa trabaho, mapalad at proud akong nakagawa ng proyekto kasama kayo.

“Malaking bagay din ang tulong at paggabay ng aming director na si Direk Eric Quizon. Salamat sa pagbigay ng kumpiyansa sa akin upang magampanan ko ng maayos ang role ni Ian.”

“Ang lahat ng ito ay hindi ko magagawa kung hindi sa tulong ng lahat ng mga mahal ko sa buhay. Salamat sa inyong pag-aalaga at pagmamahal sakin lalo na kay @mercadojenny.”

“Sana po ay mapanood niyo ang #onegreatlove. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year po sa inyong lahat.”

Roderick Paulate is playing the role of Mayor Adonis Dimagiba in the top-rating ABS-CBN teleserye “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” which stars Coco Martin. The show has been lording the primetime slot for three years now and at the rate it is going (like getting rating as high as 40 plus percent), the show will still continue to be number one.

In real life, Kuya Dick is running as Vice Mayor of Quezon City for next year’s midterm elections. He had served full term as a councilor for nine years and he wants to continue to serve the people of QC.

In a post-Christmas chikahan with some of his press friends, Kuya Dick intimated that being chosen to join the cast of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” was truly a blessing. To be part of the show is a very good exposure for him.

“Because of ‘Ang Probinsyano,’ mas madali akong nakikilala at natatandaan ng mga tao,” he said.

Whenever he visits the barangays, people refer to him as Mayor. “But of course, I always tell them that I am Mayor in the show but I am running as vice mayor in real life. The people are amused.”

Despite being busy with his job as a councilor, Kuya Dick welcomes the idea of acting once in a while in a TV series or a movie. He is even open to doing a role in an indie film, as long as the role is good and has a beautiful story.

He is calling out to scriptwriters out there who may have material that might interest him. “They might have an interesting role for me. Basta maganda ang kwento, I might consider doing it,” said Kuya Dick.
