Dennis Trillo ( A Birthday Tribute)


Abelardo Dennis Florencio Ho aka Dennis Trillo, who is turning 26 on May 12, is my sole favorite actor on the side of the Kapuso stars.

Much has been said and written about Dennis Trillo on different sites and blogs, but this time around, I'd make sure this is absolutely a different one.

I never ceased admiring Dennis Trillo, who first caught my attention since his Star Circle days on ABS-CBN. He was launched as member of Star Circle Batch 10 along with his contemporaries then such as Bea Alonzo, Alfred Vargas, Robby Mananquil and Nadine Samonte.

A few could remember that as a neophyte Star Circle member then, he was already cast as Jojo, considered to be an important role already having dramatic scenes with the lead stars. He even overshadowed Claudine Barretto's leading man Carlos Agassi. The only problem then was that he was not given a leading role very well suited for his exceptional acting ability. Or probably, one regular show wasn't enough for him not to end his contract with the network.

He then transferred to GMA having appeared on shows like Kahit Kailan, Super Twins, Mulawin, Darna, Majika, Now and Forever, SOP and Super Twins. With these shows, he might have proved a lot, but it was with the movie Aishite Imasu 1941 where he achieved his matinee idol and leading man status.

Dennis played as a crossdresser in the movie, and there he snatched 11 acting awards plus five other special citations. I will never forget his scene where Raymart Santiago kissed him goodbye. The moment Raymart's lips kissed his cheek, his tears right at that very moment fell from his closed eyes. Too effective, which only a few actors could do. Piolo Pascual could also do that special skill, as what he did in the movie Milan and even John Lloyd Cruz on TV series Maging Sino Ka Man.

Dennis Trillo then appeared on quality films such as Blue Moon, Pamahiin and Txt. His other movies include Mano Po 3 and Mulawin: the Movie. For now, he has ventured into singing, where I believe he will truly stay.

I just wish that Dennis Trillo could still be given more quality projects to showcase his acting prowess. I hope his next project would not anymore be a "telefantasya."

Since his childhood, Dennis is already a favorite model for print and television ads. Well-loved by the camera, he has grown up to be, not just an eligible bachelor nor a matinee idol, but an endearing person worth loving for.

To Dennis, more power and wishing you all the happiness, the success that you truly deserve. Advance Happy Birthday!!!
