Danilo Barrios is happy to be back on ABS-CBN
After spending two years away from the limelight, Danilo Barrios returns to showbiz via Tiagong Akyat, the first chapter of Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat Ni Ramon Revilla Sr. Danilo will play one of Gerald Anderson’s ex-convict pals together with Joseph Bitangcol. Since he previously starred in action-thrillers both on TV (Spirits, Lastikman) and the big screen (Spirit Warriors, Yamashita: The Tigers’ Treasure, Spirit Warriors 2, Lastikman), the 25-year-old actor/dancer said he wouldn’t have a hard time portraying another offbeat role. “Actually last work ko yung Lastikman kami nila Vhong (Navarro). Tapos ngayon, sobrang happy ako na nagkaroon ulit ako ng break. Most of the cast nakilala ko lang sa story conference namin. Yung iba matagal ko ng kilala pero hindi ko pa nakakatrabaho. Kaya excited ako kasi I am sure madaming adventures yung group namin,” he told ABS-CBN.com.
While he was on a break, Danilo related that he kept himself busy with out of town shows with his girlfriend—former Viva Hotbabe Jaycee Parker—and sometimes with the Streetboys. Despite his lack of regular acting stints, he remained optimistic about his career especially his love life. “Hindi sunod-sunod yung trabaho pero enjoy naman. Okay naman ang buhay, enjoy sa love life.” He and Jaycee have been together for five years now and Danilo’s glad that they are past growing pains stage. “Kailangan talaga ng respeto at honesty sa isa’t isa. Kailangan din meron kayong trust. Kasi kung hindi niyo kayang magtiwala sa isa’t isa, magsa-suffer yung relationship. Tsaka we’ve learned to compromise.”
Danilo further shared that between the two of them, Jaycee is the one who gets jealous easily, but not necessarily because of other girls. “Hindi totoo [yung chickboy image ko na sinasabi nila.] Kung nagkakaselosan man kami, pa-cute na selos lang. Kasi, minsan, kunwari uuwi ako ng Tarlac (his hometown), tapos maiiwan siya sa Manila, magseselos siya kasi nandun ako sa family ko at hindi ko siya masama dahil may trabaho siya, yung mga ganon lang. Pero siyempre dahil matagal na kami, madami talagang trials na dumating sa relationship namin.”
Perhaps what keeps them together is the fact that they know how to handle their misunderstandings as mature adults. “Pareho naman kaming nanuyo. Pero kailangan pareho kaming hindi mainit ulo at nasa mood kami na mag-usap. Kasi kung hindi lalo kaming nagka-clash. So it’s much better na ‘pag nag-away kami or may hindi kami napagkasunduan, kailangan 30 minutes to one hour bago kami mag-usap,” he added.
