After headlining Lawrence Fajardo’s X Deal 2, former Pinoy Big Brother housemate is starring in yet another steamy film produced by Vivamax. Entitled Doblado, the film starts streaming on the entertainment platform beginning May 6.
Directed by GB Sampedro who helmed chart-topping KAKA, Crush Kong Curly, at Kinsenas, Katapusan, the sexy thriller follows the story of Jaira (Denise Esteban), a college student in her early 20s – young, beautiful, and easy on the eyes.
Despite her prim and proper looks, Jaira has a well-kept secret: she’s a student by day but a high-class prostitute bynight.
As a high-class prostitute, her services only cater to VIP clients from a private website. Through this, she’ll meet Ronan (Josef), a man who will change her game, for as she promises to detach from her clients, she’ll find herself falling for this man.
And their relationship will open doors to complicated and even life-threatening situations.
“Portraying sexy roles is part of my job as an actor. Doblado is not just a sexy film. Like what our director said, it’s an art, and it’s still considered acting,” Josef said during the film’s virtual press conference.
The 31-year-old actor admitted that despite being comfortable doing intimate scenes, he would still have hesitations disrobing behind the cameras.
“Whenever I act, it’s not Josef who’s there, it’s my character. You just need to set aside your personal life. So ‘pag sumalang ka sa eksena, hindi mo kailangang isipin kung confident ka ba sa katawan mo or what not. It’s more about you portraying your character.”
“The fact that I accepted the role, that already is the biggest challenge for me. I just always bear in mind that I can’t disappoint our director,” carried on.
Joining Josef in the cast of Doblado are Mark Anthony Fernandez, Stefani Raz, Kier Legaspi, Johnny Revilla, Carlene Aguilar, Mickey Ferriols, Gian Arroyo, Gwen Garci, and Lander Vera-Perez. Nickie Wang
