Chosen because of her skin color? Quinn Carrillo plays a transman in Viva’s ‘Eva’
“Not really po kasi I don’t think naman na my color was the reason why Direk Jeffrey chose me for this role ‘di ba?” answered Quinn Carrillo on Wednesday, November 24 when asked if she was offended by people’s speculation that she landed her role in Eva because of her skin color.
The young Viva talent will be playing Butch, a transman in the movie.
During the film’s virtual media conference, Carrillo further pointed that she can be a versatile artist if given the opportunity.
“Even though a lot of people say na, ‘Ah kasi ganiyan ka kaya ganitong role lang ang p’wede sa’yo.’ I don’t think that way kasi I parang I can play any role if I want to, it’s all about portrayal naman eh.”
However, Carrillo was concerned if she did well in playing her character.
“I just hoped na I did justice talaga with this role kasi I really liked playing transman. Kasi it’s a lot different than any characters out there. So I really love playing different characters kasi talagang macha-challenge yung skills mo as an actor.”
Being a transman in the movie, Carrillo was challenged since it differed from all the characters she had played before her character, Butch.
“So sobrang iba niya from my previous characters kasi the one I did in Silab was like this kikay maid and then in Shoot Shoot kikay kikay din. And also in real life, I’m very kikay. And then I’m supposed to play this man tapos kailangan na macho and everything.”
Eva is an erotic-drama film that focuses on sex itself and features a threesome.
When asked if she had reservations about doing the threesome, Carrillo said she trusted the film’s director, Jeffrey Hidalgo, to guide them throughout the scene.
“Hindi naman kami nagdalawang isip kasi it’s all about trust naman talaga with your director. Like we’ve said talaga, we really trusted naman Direk Jeffrey with what he did with the film.”
The film stars Mahjong Nights Angeli Khang, who admitted she went all-out in her titular movie.
Meanwhile, if given a chance to star in her movie and follow Khang in Eva, Carrillo said it depends if the story requires her.
“Kung mag-all out, depende. Depende again with the director, depende sa story if it’s really essential to the character and if it’s really what the character would do in that situation,” explained the young artist.
Eva also includes Sab Aggabao, Angelica Cervantes, Marco Gomez, and Ivan Padilla. It will be available for streaming on Vivamax, December 24.
