Kapuso actor Paolo Contis has this preparation for her gay wrestler role in the movie Fuchsia Libre.
Paolo currently has several projects. Aside from his daily hosting stint in the Kapuso noontime show Eat Bulaga, he is also part of the Sunday gag show Bubble Gang. Aside from his regular TV shows, Paolo also has a new movie.
In Fuchsia Libre, he plays the role of an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter but he is gay. His father, played by award-winning actor John Arcilla, decided to put him under martial arts training because of his “softness.” Also included in the movie are Gian Magdangal, Khalil Ramos, and Jon Santos.
Before doing the fight scenes, Paolo Contis had to do some preparations, including losing weight. Based on the article in PEP, the actor had a hard time doing this but he already lost 20 lbs.
Last weekend, Paolo already shot some of the fight scenes with real wrestlers and with fight instructor Erwin Tagle.
“Ang hihiraaap! Three days straight yun! Juskoooo! Super sakit ng katawan ko, hanggang ngayon,” the actor shared through a text message to PEP. However, he said that he enjoyed it.
Aside from the fight scenes, Paolo and John will also have dramatic scenes in the movie and this is another challenge for him. The Kapuso star also shared that there is another fight scene that is a long one.
Meanwhile, Paolo Contis has already finished shooting the movie A Journey with his former Tabing Ilog co-stars Patrick Garcia and Kaye Abad. He shared that he has no idea yet if Mavx Productions will submit this as an entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival.
