Matteo Guidecilli wants to impress Sarah
WHEN kart racer champion-turned-actor-cum-tv host Matteo Guidecilli was offered to play a suitor of Sarah Geronimo in the upcoming movie Catch Me I’m In Love, he could not believe his luck, he said, at first.
From the start, he was told, this would be only a short, but definitely, a defining role. Thus, there was every chance for him to be noticed depending on how he tackled his role. How he can do it, since Sarah’s actual leading man in the movie is Gerald Anderson, is all up to him, this, he knew.
Matteo knew, likewise, that this was his chance to impress Sarah, whom he had long been admiring from a distance. “Basta gusto ko ang kanyang simplicity,” ani Matteo. “Her sweetness, naivete and innocence.”
Nu’ng hindi pa kilala ni Sarah si Matteo, he confessed he would tag along with Billy Crawford, a fellow Swatch, the timepiece from Switzerland endorser, so he can see her. Yes, up close, that is.
Could Sarah be one of the reasons why he decided na mag-artista?
“In a way, yes,” sagot ni Matteo. “Noong una, purely curiosity lang ang reason why I decided to go into acting. But now, I’m starting to love the job.”
Matteo was introduced in the series Agua Bendita where he played leading man to Andie Eigenmann, who was assigned a twin role in the afternoon series. This was followed by another soap, this time, with Maja Salvador as his leading lady.
Right now, he is regular at ASAP. Every other day of the week (T-Th-S), he alternates with Sam Milby as co-host of the noontime program on ABS CBN, Happy Yipee Yehey.
The show’s daily hosts are John Estrada, Randy Santiago, Toni Gonzaga, Mariel Rodriguez, Bianca Manalo and Bentong.
