Darwin Taylo  – it may not be a name you’re quite familiar with yet, but be sure to keep it in mind because this aspiring indie film actor is sure to be taking over movie theatres and living rooms around the nation.
In 2008, Darwin started up acting via gay indie trilogy “Hugot”, written and directed by Jonison Fontanos. His portrayal of a street hustler caught the attention of the director and casted him in yet another gay indie crime flick, “Parisukat” (2010) as Xander/Sandra, the transsexual.

The 21-year-old indie actor is Youtube sensation’s  Bekimon’s Junakis.

A proud Caviteño, Darwin is looking to further pursue his dream as a professional film actor hoping to take after one of his famous acting idols John Loyd Cruz.

Darwin’s latest indie movie, “Ombre” – a Bromantic love story will soon capture the hearts of gay hearts.

Below is an interview with Darwin Taylo.

1. Tell me a little about OMBRE. What can we expect?

This film tries to make its way out of the usual sexual-themed indie films and really tries to capture the audience's attention by drawing them to feel what the characters are feeling. Expect drama. Expect love. Expect romance in different ways.

2. So what was it that drew you to the film?

It's a masterpiece on its own. And this film's script is no exception. When I read the script, I immediately agreed to do the film. Knowing the passion Direk (Joni Fontanos) puts in a film and how this would improve my being an actor, I got excited to start filming it.

3. What does the title mean?

OMBRE came from the Spanish word Hombre which means male. This I think is derived from the over-all theme of the film that basically talks about how males fall in love with each other, the true, and sometimes taboo, way.

4. Tell us a little about your character in OMBRE.

I play the role of Dennis, a photographer from Manila, who was an emotionally and mentally depressed young man. Left his life in Manila for a vacation in Baguio, which added more questions than answers to his already disturbed mind. What will keep his mind and heart at peace is what this film will tell you about.

5. So, how similar are you to him?

We are more different than we are similar. I tend to get emotionally and psychologically disturbed sometimes but not to the extent that my character “Dennis” showed in this film. When I love someone, I always manage to set the limit early in the relationship and really try to reach out to the other side of the road and meet halfway.

6. I’ve seen some sexy images from the film, do you mind getting your kit off onscreen?

I actually do. Hehe. The reason is I really have no "nice" kit to show off. But I showed the best form that I can at that time and pulled it off with the support of my director and the crew.

7. There are some great sex scenes in the film. Are they quite as sterile as actors make out?

Not at all. Most of the scenes were done to express passion, not lust; love, not sex; need, not want.

8. How did you go about filming the sex scenes – what’s the process?

It was not easy. We'd have to go thru extensive acting and sensual workshops so we can be comfortable with each other. I also had to watch films with great sex scenes to know the idea and feel what it's like to do "it" on camera. I think what we were able to come up with was sexy and emotional.

9. How do you feel about the fact that there’s going to be a lot of guys lusting after you?

That'd be unusually cool but we all got it coming if it comes.

10. What would you say is your best asset and if you could change one thing about your body, what would it be?

My eyes are my best asset. I'm comfortable with everything that's me, but given the chance, my hands can use a little smoothness one way or another.

11. What was the most challenging scene for you to film?

The sex scenes, I'd say. It was the first time I had to do a scene like that, it took a lot of preparation, physically, emotionally, psychologically. It's not as easy as it looks.

12. What about a scene or moment that you’re most proud of?

It would be the climax of the story where we all got to face our fears and really stand up for what we feel. Well, I mean the characters.

13. Finish the sentence: A good night out starts with….?

a few drinks.

14. And it ends with…?

more drinks. =p

15. What’s one of the most outrageous things you’ve ever done?

Puked right in front of a bar.

16. What comes first for you: sex or love?


17. What do you think is the secret of a good relationship?

Good communication and understanding.

18. What has been your greatest discovery online?

That you can basically do anything. Sell yourself to great fame and be sold to great shame.

19. And finally, what’s next for you?

I'm not really sure. But I'm pursuing what I started. I love acting so whatever opportunities come to share it, I'd gladly take.
