    Jennylyn at Sam, gagawa ng pelikula sa New York
    Posted by Reggee Bonoan on May 10th, 2015

    ‘HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY, Jen’ ang bati namin kay Jennylyn Mercado nang makita namin siya sa main house ng Valencia na pag-aari ni Mother Lily Monteverde noong Biyernes ng hapon. May meeting siya roon kasama si Ms. Roselle Monteverde-Teo, Direk Manny Valera, Direk Jun Lana, Ms Rose Conde, Sam Milby kasama ang manager na si Erickson Raymundo at Star Magic handler na si Ms. Lulu Romero.
    “Thank you, oo nga, ‘no? “ mabilis na sagot ng alaga ni Tita Becky Aguila.
    Magpipitong taong gulang na pala ang anak ni Jennylyn kay Patrick Garcia na si Alex Jazz na nakakatuwa dahil lumalaking mabait at guwapo.
    At nakakagulat din na ang ganda-ganda at ang sexy ni Jennylyn, sino’ng magsasabi na may anak na siya?
    Napangiti siya nang sabihin namin na para siyang dalaga sabay kumusta sa lovelife niya dahil mukhang inspired siya.
    (Editor’s note: Reggee, bagamat may anak, dalaga pa naman talaga si Jen. Tunay na dalagang ina, masipag, maganda, at seksi.)
    “Ako, two years na nga akong walang boyfriend, ‘Te Reggs. Wala, puro lang ako work, concentrated ako ngayon sa work para sa anak ko, sa family ko,” sagot ng aktres.
    Bakit may tsikang nagkakamabutihan na sila ulit ng ex-boyfriend niyang si Dennis Trillo at nakita pa raw sila sa Balesin Island?
    “Okay kami now, we’re friends,” matipid na sagot ng aktres.
    Walang balikang nangyari?
    “Ay, wala, as in! Trying to be friends, trying to be okay, pero wala,” sabi ng aktres.
    Kung ganoon, nananatili ang kanyang record na hindi na bumabalik sa ex-boyfriends.
    Kahit sobrang abala sa trabaho at aminado na hindi biro ang magpalaki ng anak na walang katuwang, maayos na naitataguyod ni Jen si Alex Jazz bilang single mom.
    “Good thing, I have my mom (Mommy Lydia Mercado) at Tita Becky who guides me at helping me na rin,” say ng aktres.
    Samantala, ang meeting niya sa Valencia ay para sa rom-com movie na gagawin nila ni Sam na ididirek ni Jun Lana at sa New York City, USA kukunan simula sa Hunyo, base sa kuwento ni Ms. Roselle.
    Excited si Jen dahil first time rin niyang makakatrabaho si Sam na matagal na niyang kakilala.
    “Nakilala ko si Sam noon pa, ipinakilala siya sa akin ni Luis (Manzano, ex boyfriend niya) kasi kapag magkakasama sila (gimik), isinasama ako,” kuwento ni Jen.
    Kilalang-kilala na pala niya si Sam Milby?
    “Kilala naman, pero hindi ganu’n kalalim,” say ni Jen.
    Binanggit naming na mabuting tao si Sam at single pa.
    “Weh, di nga, wala siyang girlfriend?” nagulat na tanong ni Jennylyn.
    ‘Oo nga,’ hirit uli naming, at ang huling girlfriend nito ay si Anne Curtis.
    Hindi makapaniwala si Jennylyn, kinailangan pa tuloy naming mag-swear at sabihing may mga nakaka-date siguro itong girls, pero hindi seryoso kasi nga konserbatibo ang aktor at ayaw na niya ng fling-fling o lokohang relasyon.
    “Ah, ok,” nasabi ng dalagang ina.
    Hmmm, hindi naman namin tinutukso sina Jen at Sam, pero sa totoo lang, may chemistry sila!
    Abangan natin kung ano ang mabubuong samahan nila kapag nasa New York na sila.
    Ang working title ng pelikula ay Pre-Nup at si Direk Jun mismo ang susulat ng script.

    SAM, EXCITED NA SA PAGSASAMA NILA NI JEN


    051115-sam-milby-jennylyn-mercado.jpg

    SPEAKING of Sam Milby ay ang ganda ng mga ngiti niya nang inguso namin si Jennylyn Mercado at sabay tingin sa aktres.
    Pero mukhang ayaw pag-usapan ni Sam ang tungkol sa kanila ni Jennylyn, sabi lang niya, ”I’m excited to do a movie with her (Jennylyn).
    Noong Mayo 6 daw dumating si Sam galing ng Amerika at kinailangan niyang dumating ng Pilipinas dahil sa project niya sa Regal Films at gagawa raw siya ng teleserye na hindi naman binanggit pa.
    Kinumusta namin ang nangyari sa kanya sa California, USA na roon siya nag-workshop at nag-audition, base na rin sa sinabi niya sa interview niya kamakailan nang dumalo siya sa red carpet ng Asian Film Festival.
    “Hmm, okay naman,” tipid na sa sabi ni Sam.
    Kinukulit namin kung ano ang nangyari sa audition at panay lang ang ngiti ni Sam at sinabihan na kami ng handler ng aktor na si Ms Lulu na, ”at saka na natin pag-usapan ‘yan Reggee.”
    Hmm, base sa mga ngiti ni Sam ay mukhang positibo ang nangyaring auditions dahil kung hindi ay magme-make face siya sa amin, yes ateng Maricris, ganoon namin kakilala ang aktor.
    Marami pa kaming gustong itanong, pero nagmamadali na silang umalis kasama ang manager niyang si Erickson at handler na si Lulu dahil may meeting pa yata ulit sila.

    Sam at Jen, bagay na bagay

    ANG ganda ng ngiti ni Sam Milby sa meeting nila ni Jennylyn Mercado, para sa gagawin nilang pelikula sa New York under Regal Entertainment at direksiyon ni Jun Lana, nang inguso namin ang aktres sa kanya.
    Naloloka siguro si Sam sa amin dahil hindi pa nga sila nagsisimulang magtrabaho ni Jennylyn ay tinutukso na namin siya.
    “I’m excited to do a movie with her,” tanging sabi ng aktor nang lumapit sa amin sabay yakap na parang sinabing tantanan na namin siya.
    Walang eksaherasyon, Bossing DMB, bagay sina Sam at Jennylyn.
    (Hayan ka na naman, Reggee! E, ano’ng nangyari sa misyon mo kay Shaina? Di ba, wala? Papasukin na lang kaya natin ‘yan si Samuel sa seminaryo? –DMB)
    Noong Mayo 6 dumating si Sam galing ng Los Angeles, California at masaya kaagad ang sumalubong sa kanya dahil tuloy na ang teleseryeng gagawin niya. Pero ayaw pa niyang banggitin kung ano ito at heto nga, nag-meeting kaagad para naman sa pelikula nila ni Jen.
    Kinumusta namin ang workshop experience niya kay Yvana Chubbuck at ang audition niya na ikinuwento niya sa interview sa kanya nang dumalo siya sa red carpet ng Asian Film Festival.
    “Hmmm, okay naman,” tipid na sabi ni Sam.
    Maski na anong kulit namin ay ayaw magbigay ng detalye ang actor, saka na lang daw.
    Batay sa mga ngiti, sa pakiwari namin ay positibo ang resulta ng audition ni Sam pero ayaw lang niyang magbigay ng detalye. O sadyang para kay Jennylyn Mercado ang mga ngiti niyang iyon?

    Regal hindi nahirapan kay Sam

    May 15, 2015

    Confirmed na ang paggawa ng movie ng Kapamilya contract talent na si Sam Milby sa Regal Films Entertainment.

    Sam is finally signing a contract with the film firm today, confirming earlier reports that he will team up with Jennylyn Mercado in the upcoming movie, Pre Nup, which Jun Lana will direct.

    Both Mother Lily and her daughter, Roselle Monteverde-Teo, will be present at the contract signing.

    It was Roselle’s idea na pagsamahin sa Pre Nup, which she reportedly conceptualized, sina Sam at Jennylyn. Which didn’t look possible, at first, since isang Kapamilya nga si Sam, samantalang solid Kapuso naman si Jennylyn.

    But as Mother Lily said: ‘‘If there’s a will, there’s a way.’’

    From Roselle, we learned, too, that Pre-Nup will be filmed in New York City, U.S.

    Sam Milby signs two-picture deal with Regal Films; assures no conflict of interest with Star Cinema
    by Rachelle Siazon
    posted on May 15, 2015

    d3050096a.jpg
    Sam Milby on his two-picture contract with Regal Films: “I did [ask for permission from Star Cinema]. Actually, before there was a movie with Regal Films na hindi natuloy. It was supposed to be last year. Nagpaalam na ako nun. And I’m happy that they were able to give me permission."

    Sam Milby officially signed a two-picture contract with Regal Entertainment, which was held at Mother Lily Monteverde’s residence in Valencia, Quezon City, earlier this afternoon, May 15.

    At the press conference, the Kapamilya actor revealed that he was supposed to do a movie under Regal last year, but it didn’t push through due to a conflict with his schedule.

    But he maintained that it’s all about perfect timing, especially because he’s slated to be paired with 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) Best Actress Jennylyn Mercado via the movie Prenup, under Regal Films.

    “Mabuti naman ngayon matutuloy na talaga. It is now under contract.

    “Thank you to Mother Lily [Monteverde] and thank you to Regal for the opportunity to work with you guys.

    “It’s my tenth anniversary in showbiz, so malaking opportunity ito para sa akin to work with a lot of people that I’ve never been able to work with [before].

    “So, I’m very excited,” he told the entertainment press right after his contract signing.

    Coming from two different TV networks, Sam admitted that he never really had the chance to meet Jennylyn prior to the few story conferences they’ve attended for their upcoming project.

    “I just ran into her a few times before. Pero yung nag-usap kami, not really.

    “This is our first time getting to know [each other] more.

    “I don’t really know much about her,” he said.

    Asked about his first impression of the Kapuso actress, Sam admitted that he really finds her attractive.

    “She’s very beautiful. Ang bait, ang ganda [niya].

    “I’m excited to work with her. She’s one of the best actresses for sure.

    “Sa script pa lang, I think this is a movie na magsa-shine sa acting niya.

    “Inaayos pa yung script ng konti, but it’s getting nicer.

    "It’s a romantic comedy," he added.

    Regal Films producer Roselle Monteverde—who graced the contract signing with her mom and Regal Films matriarch Lily Monteverde—gave a few hints about what the moviegoers will expect from the tandem of Sam and Jennylyn.

    "First time nilang magkikita sa movie sa eroplano. Riot agad ang eksena nila sa loob ng eroplano. Nakakatuwa," she stated.

    NO CONFLICT WITH STAR CINEMA. Although Sam is an exclusive Kapamilya star, he clarified that there’s no conflict of interest between his decision to do a project with Regal Films and his home network’s film production arm, Star Cinema.

    Sam explained, “I did [ask for permission].

    “Actually, before there was a movie with Regal na hindi natuloy. It was supposed to be last year.

    “Nagpaalam na ako nun. And I’m happy that they were able to give me permission.

    “And it’s not the first time that I’m doing a movie na hindi Star Cinema.

    “I did three indie movies din—Cul de Sac, Death March na nag-Cannes Film Festival, and Third World Happy.

    “Then there’s The Gifted, which is under Viva Films.”


    Sam also stressed that he remains to be in good standing with ABS-CBN even though he’s not that visible on TV these days.

    “Yes, I’m still with Star Magic and ABS-CBN, of course.

    “Actually, may teleserye akong gagawin later this year.

    “Hindi ko puwede sabihin kung sino kasama.

    “Siguro July or August magsisimula yung taping.”

    ABORTED MOVIES. Incidentally, Sam was supposed to topbill Ex With Benefits opposite Coleen Garcia and Meg Imperial under the production of Skylight Films (production outfit of ABS-CBN for indie films) and Viva Films.

    The Kapamilya actor already did five shooting days for Ex With Benefits, but he was later replaced by Derek Ramsay because Sam left for U.S.

    “I really don’t know [why the project didn’t work out].

    “I know that I was replaced.

    “I ended up leaving for two and a half months.

    "But I really don’t know who replaced me,” Sam stated.

    When told that it was Derek who got the part, an entertainment reporter commented that it’s the second time the Kapatid actor landed a lead role that was originally intended for Sam.

    It would be recalled that Sam was initially being eyed to play the male lead in the MMFF entry English Only Please late last year.

    To which Sam replied, “The first time was a different situation.

    “I didn’t know at first that I was the first choice before.

    "But, yeah, that’s what I’ve been hearing, that I’m the first choice for English Only Please.

    “I think it was more of a schedule problem din.

    “I think that’s the time when I was shooting The Gifted. I’m not really sure what happened.

    “But I’m really happy the movie did really well.

    “Jennylyn won Best Actress. Actually, si Derek din nanalo ng Best Actor sa MMFF, so I’m happy it turned out that way.”

    As for Ex With Benefits, Sam clarified that he didn’t back out from the project.

    “Actually, that was a project that I really enjoyed reading the script.

    “And I think it would really do well.

    “But yeah, I needed to leave and they needed to start shooting from my understanding.

    "They need to get it done. So it’s okay," he maintained.

    So it’s not because he didn’t like the project?

    “I like the project. It was a good project.

    “But yeah, you win some, you lose some. That’s life.

    “Now I have this [Prenup]. This is a big blessing.

    "I’m working with the Best Actress!" he beamed.

    SAM GETS SECOND CHANCE TO BE WITH JENNYLYN
    by ETHEL RAMOS
    May 18, 2015

    Philippine-Business-News-sam-milby-05182015.jpg

    Speaking of Sam [Milby], it’s confirmed that he will soon do a movie with Jennylyn Mercado under Regal Entertainment.

    Titled “Pre-Nup,” it’s his and Jennylyn’s first team-up.

    “Dapat talaga, pangalawang movie na namin ito ni Jennylyn,” related Sam. “It will be recalled that I got an offer to do the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry, ‘English Please Only,’ which eventually won for Jennylyn the MMFF best actress trophy.”

    Meanwhile, Derek Ramsey, who was Sam’s replacement, won the MMFF best actor for his performance in the movie.

    “But no regrets,” Sam said at his contract signing with Regal Entertainment. “At least, finally, I’m doing a movie na with Jennylyn.”

    Part of the film, according to Roselle Monteverde, daughter of Mother Lily Monteverde who now manages the film firm, will be filmed in New York. Roselle conceptualized “Pre-Nup,” which will have Jun Lana at the helm.

    “Supposedly kasi, Sam lives in New York,” Roselle disclosed. “Jennylyn happened to be there in search of someone.”

    In a previous interview, Sam was asked if he believes in having a pre-nup agreement before getting married.

    “Nope,” Sam quickly replied. “Para sa akin, when two people fall in love and later marry, they become one na.”

    Sam Milby passes up two big movie projects to focus on his acting class in LA

    Sam Milby on going back and forth between the Philippines and Los Angeles: “I’m not worried ‘coz I really believe in the last ten years ABS has taken care of me, and I believe will still take care of me. Sometimes we have to accept that this is a job that really won’t be forever. I still wanna just keep on going, do what I can and enjoy.”
    PHOTO: NOEL ORSAL

    Hindi raw pinanghihinayangan ni Sam Milby ang pagkawala sa kanya ng film projects na English Only Please at Ex With Benefits.

    Ang English Only Please ay naging big hit at humakot ng awards sa nakaraang 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival, habang ang Ex With Benefits ay nakatakdang ipalabas ngayong taon.

    Si Sam ang original choice para sa mga naturang proyekto, ngunit dahil sa pag-aaral niya ng acting sa Los Angeles ay kinailangan niyang tanggihan ang mga ito.

    Parehong napunta ang mga proyektong ito kay Derek Ramsay.

    Pahayag ni Sam tungkol dito, “I believe that everything happens for a reason.

    “And, like I’ve said, it was a good experience for me, such a learning experience.

    “If a project or another project doesn’t happen for me, it just doesn’t happen for me.

    “I’m excited, kasi I have key projects that are coming up dito sa Pilipinas.

    “Hindi pa nag-i-start, but pinag-usapan na, niluluto na.”

    Ang tinutukoy marahil ni Sam ay ang pagpirma niya ng kontrata sa Regal Entertainment Inc.

    Hindi ba siya nanghinayang na nawala sa kanya ang dalawang movie projects na ito?

    Sagot ni Sam, “Nanghihinayang? Hindi naman.

    “I did actually like the script though, it was really a nice script.

    “I also believe that Derek will give justice to the role, bagay din siya sa role, I think he will do well.”

    Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at Cinema News si Sam sa ASAP 20 noong Linggo, May 10.

    ACTING WORKSHOP IN L.A. Kumusta naman ang acting workshop na sinalihan niya sa Los Angeles, California?

    Lahad ni Sam, “Okay naman, good to be back.

    “Nag-aral ako ng acting, meetings, networking new people, and medyo bakasyon din.

    “It went well, it went really well.

    “Medyo iba. I haven’t taken that many quest dito, it’s a lot different thing there being in a class.

    “It was so many different kinds of people all around the world.

    “It was a good learning experience for me and I’m going back again.

    "Kasi gusto ko iba’t ibang teachers din to get different methods of acting.

    "Gusto kong mag-grow as an artist.

    "It helps me to see the other actors din, their feedbacks also in giving me feedbacks sa mga eksena na ginawa ko sa class.

    “It gives me confidence din.

    "I was able to meet a lot of different people din, it’s really good.”

    Hindi naman daw nababahala si Sam na maaapektuhan ang acting career niya sa Pilipinas dahil sa pagpabalik-balik niya sa Amerika. Lalo na’t napakarami nang mga baguhang artista na maaaring pumalit sa kanya.

    Saad niya, “I know it’s difficult, kasi yung turnover rate, ang bilis, ang daming bago.

    “Even when I was gone for a while dito sa ASAP, ang daming bago na bata.

    “It’s a lot different, but I’m thankful.

    “To think about it, this is my tenth year, to think I still have work, sobrang blessed pa rin ako. They still offer projects pa rin.

    “I’m not worried ‘coz I really believe in the last ten years ABS has taken care of me, and I believe will still take care of me.

    “Sometimes we have to accept that this is a job that really won’t be forever.

    “I still wanna just keep on going, do what I can and enjoy.”

    STILL SINGLE. Nang kumustahin naman ang kanyang lovelife, sinabi ni Sam na wala pa rin siyang bagong girlfriend hanggang ngayon.

    “Wala pa. Siyempre I am travelling so much lately, so medyo mahirap nga.

    “For me, if it happens, it happens.

    “If not, I’m dating naman.”

    Bukas, May 16, ay ikakasal na ang matalik na kaibigan ni Sam na si John Prats kay Isabel Oli.

    Si Sam ang tatayong best man.

    Sabi niya tungkol sa nalalapit na kasal ng kaibigan, “I’m excited for them, sobra!

    “The first time na nag-hangout sila, ako ang kasama ni Pratty.

    “Ako yung nag-drive when we hang out with Liv the first time.

    “From the time that I saw them, nakita ko yung kilig ni Pratty talaga and, until now, I still see so much love between them.

    “So, I’m so excited for them.

    “I’m the best man… I’m blessed that I have a friend that found his forever.”

    Hindi ba siya naiinggit na ikakasal na ang kanyang kaibigan, samantalang siya ay single pa rin hanggang ngayon?

    Sagot ni Sam, “Not inggit, it’s more of excitement.

    “My time will come also, but lahat na pala halos…

    “Si Toni [Gonzaga] next month, si Nikki [Gil] later this year… last year everyone is getting married din.

    “I’m only 30 pa rin, still okay, I’m still young.

    “I’m excited for that day for me also. In God’s time.”

    Sam returns from US to shoot movie with Jennylyn
    by Jojo Panaligan
    May 17, 2015


    Some people say the Sam Milby-Jennylyn Mercado pairing in Regal Entertainment’s upcoming “Prenup” is overdue but the actor isn’t losing sleep over it.

    Recall that last year, talks were rife that Sam was “first choice” as leading man for the actress in the movie “English Only, Please.” The male lead role was ultimately essayed by Derek Ramsay, who even won an MMFF Best Actor trophy for his portrayal.

    Sam-Milby-225x300.jpg

    Sam Milby


    “I don’t know about being ‘first choice’ (for the role) but I’m really happy that movie did well,” said Sam to that effect in an interview at Valencia Events Place late last week. “No regrets, everything happens for a reason. The fact that they gave justice to their roles means it all worked out. In life, you win some, you lose some.”

    The actor would rather focus on “Prenup,” a story written and will be directed by Jun Lana. Sam and Jennylyn will shoot some scenes for the movie in New York.

    Actually, Sam had just returned from the US where he took acting classes and did some “networking.” Unlike in the Philippines where many of his projects are offered to him, Sam experienced auditioning for parts in Los Angeles where he stayed for three months. He recalled sitting in audition rooms with renowned Hollywood actors all of whom, like him, were trying out for roles.

    “It was humbling experience, like starting over again,” he said. “I’d like to go back ’pag may time to take up more classes and learn from different acting coaches. As they say, different methods work for different actors so I wanna explore further what works for me.”

    Aside from shooting for “Prenup,” Sam will be returning to the US soon for some TFC shows, then for a show in Taiwan, too.

    Sam said that even at time of interview, he’s been getting emails for auditions in the US. He said people tell him that his advantage is that he doesn’t look just Filipino or just American, but he could pass for being Mexican or Latino, too.

    Asked if he regrets time away from the Philippines in that some think it could dim his star, the actor gave a practical response.

    “I don’t think about it,” he said. “Ang daming bago all the time. It’s a fast turnover in the industry. It’s been 10 years for me and to still have work at this point, it’s a blessing. I’m thankful. I think positive.”

    GETTING TO KNOW JEN

    Sam admitted he’s only met Jennylyn during the story conference for “Prenup” but he looks forward to getting to know her more as shooting progresses.

    Jennylyn Mercado


    “Maganda siya…I want to work with her. Who wouldn’t want to work with a best actress awardee?” Sam said. “Going by the script of ‘Prenup’ alone, I think mag-shine uli ang acting ni Jennylyn dito.”

    Some of the reporters at the conference remarked that Sam could fall for Jennylyn. However, Sam would say later in response to another question that though he’s been dating, he’s learned that love comes when you least expect it.

    When does he plan to marry and settle down?

    “In God’s time,” he quipped. “Maybe in four years’ time. I’ll be turning 31 years old soon so hopefully (I’ll settle down) by the time I reach 35. I’ll pray for it.”

    He will have to slow down. At this point, Sam remains as busy as ever. Aside from “Prenup” and then another movie with Regal Films after that, he is set to star in an ABS-CBN teleserye by year’s end.

    Speaking of the Kapamilya Network, Sam said his movie with Regal Films has their blessing. He pointed out that “Prenup” isn’t even his first project outside his mother company having done “Cul de Sac,” “Death March” and “The Gifted” with other production groups.

    FOR PRENUP?

    Asked if he believes in getting a prenup in real life, Sam said it’s not for him.

    “Naiintindihan ko naman ang mga couples that get a prenup, pero for me I don’t (think about getting one should I marry). Mind you, it’s my own belief and I’m not judging anyone but when I get married, kahit anong mangyari, I’ll fight for you. Hanggang walang hanggang. I will give it my all and believe it will last forever.”

    To prepare for his role in “Prenup,” Sam plans to watch some of the works of his director and co-actors.
