Since the Kapamilya drama series “The Good Son” is finally approaching its finale, Philippine Ultimate Showbiz Hub interviewed one of its main cast memberss, Nash Aguas. The 19-year-old actor plays the role of Calvin Buenavidez, a teenager with schizophrenia.
The “Goin’ Bulilit” alumna has worked with plenty of roles in the past but his role as Calvin is arguably his most challenging yet. During his brief interview, Nash claimed that he has difficulty dissociating himself from his character during the onset of the taping:
“Dati, meron times na after ng iyakan, umiiyak pa rin ako. Actually, nung umpisa ng The Good Son, may mga ganun ako. May mga sinyut nga kami na hindi na pinalabas, eh. Merong eksena na umiiyak ako don sa ataul ng tatay ko, tapos sobrang umiiyak ako. Tapos nung nag-cut na, umiiyak pa rin ako, hanggang pagpunta ko sa tent umiiyak pa rin ako.”
Even though it is tough to play the part of a teenager with schizophrenia, Nash Aguas managed to nail his acting convincingly.
When asked if there’s anything important he learned from his role, the actor shared how it opened his eyes about mental disorders:
“Kasi siyempre, hindi ako familiar don sa mga ganung cases kagaya ni Calvin, pero siguro yung natutunan ko is, hindi rin nila ginusto na magkaganun. Kumbaga, aware sila na may ganun sila at ayaw nila yon, kaso yung ibang tao masyado silang dyina-judge agad, kinakatakutan, tinataboy, ganyan, so nakakaawa.”
Aside from his exemplary acting skills, many people couldn’t help but talk about Nash Aguas’ on-screen romance with his co-star Alexa Ilacad. Is there any chance that their reel romance will lead to real-life love?
Although many avid fans are actually rooting for Nash Aguas and Alexa Ilacad’s budding romance, the 19-year-old actor seems to think otherwise. As a matter of fact, he prefers to be friends with the actress for now:
“Mapagpigil ako, eh, parang ganun. Kasi kapag naging kayo tapos ang daming isyu, ang daming bashers, ganyan, masisira kayo tapos hindi na kayo mag-uusap. May natutunan kami na kapag minadali mo ang isang bagay at saka pag ano ka, pag yon ang iniisip mo lagi, mas nakakasira. Mas mabuting magkaibigan kayo, kasi yon magtatagal. Kumbaga, may mga sitwasyon na mas okey na magkaibigan lalo na sa industry namin. Mas mahirap kasi, eh.”
