Filipino-American actor Sam Milby said that he is trying his best to speak straight Tagalog to expand his horizons as an actor.
Milby admitted that he is still having a hard time speaking Tagalog, which is why he continues to study the language.
“Ang gusto ko, matuto. Kasi lahat ng mga roles ko iyong nanggaling sa States. Parang ayaw ko ng ganyan. Limited talaga iyong mga roles ko,” the actor said.
He said if he becomes good in Tagalog he can do more roles for television or movies.
“Kahit saan na ako, kahit sa Mindanao,” he said.
He said that he was studying Tagalog but needed to stop when he started to shoot his hit movie “My Big Love” with Toni Gonzaga and the television series “Maging Sino Ka Man.”
Right now, Milby is honing his Tagalog for the television series “Dyosa” which stars his special love Anne Curtis.
"Dyosa" will premiere Monday, August 11 after ABS-CBN’s contest “The Singing Bee.”
In an earlier interview with Milby, he said that he and Curtis are still in the courting stage.
Sam or Samuel Lloyd Lacia Milby in real life started his career when he joined the first ever season of "Pinoy Big Brother".
This early in his career he already received various recognitions such as 2005 Most Promising Male Singer, 2006 Prince of Philippine Movies by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Foundation, Best New Male Artist in the 19th Annual Aliw Awards, Best New Male TV personality by the Philippine Movie Press Club in the 20th Star Awards for Television and one of the ten Most Well-Liked Male TV personalities by the South East Asian Anak TV Seal.
