Throughout his 10-year showbiz career, Enrique Gil has already portrayed various roles, ranging from heartwarming lead to an infuriating kontrabida. Thus, he has cemented his status in the business as one of the bankable leading men of his generation and became a household name.
From playing bit roles in his first television appearances, he finally nabbed his first-ever lead role in the 2011 teen-oriented musical drama anthology Good Vibes wherein he played the half-brother-slash-rival of Sam Concepcion’s character Marc.
That same year, he starred in the remake of the 90’s classic melodrama series Mula sa Puso as Michael, which was originally by Diether Ocampo. It was succeeded by his stint in Budoy as the anti-hero Benjamin “BJ” Maniego.
In 2012, he was cast as one of the charming princes of Kathryn Bernardo in Princess and I as Dasho Jao Rinpoche.
Quen got paired with Julia Montes in Muling Buksan Ang Puso (2013) and Julia Barretto in Mirabella (2014), before his phenomenal tandem with reel-to-real life partner Liza Soberano was born through the top-rating series Forevermore.
Since the LizQuen loveteam became a big hit, they were given another teleserye project in 2016 through Dolce Amore, wherein he portrayed the hardworking and speech-impaired Tenten who got smitten with her penpal Serena.
Far from his dashing dude and nice guy vibe in his previous portrayals, a different Enrique would be seen in the forthcoming fantaserye Bagani. He will be known as Lakas, the outcast among the legion of Taga-Disyerto for being the offspring of the couple tagged as “traitor” by their clan.
Will he be able to shatter that brand to their family and regain their dignity? Let’s find out by watching Bagani, starting March 5 on Primetime Bida.
