8 Straight Pinoy Actors
Who Portrayed Gay Roles
By Tynne De Leon
Straight actors playing homosexual characters aren’t really rare in local cinema, but there are certain ones who really shine despite being “not gay.”
Scroll down to see some of the famous straight actors who played gay characters exceptionally well:
Sef Cadayona is pretty much known for his gay roles, but he is definitely straight. We can’t blame the show producers for casting him though, he plays out the character really well and he is truly hilarious. Some of his notable gay portrayals are in GMA7’s Bubble Gang and Dream of My Life.
Dubbed as this generation’s John Lloyd Cruz, Joshua Garcia is definitely making a name for himself. He is praised for his exceptional acting, and his portrayal of a gay character in Maalaala Mo Kaya last year became memorable for most people. Despite his wholesome image, we bet he’s game to taking more challenging roles in the future!
Janus del Prado
We all know Janus Del Prado as the versatile actor who can play the best friend, side kick, or even the father in movies and teleseryes. But do you still remember his homosexual role in Maalala Mo Kaya years ago? He definitely slayed on that!
Mikoy Morales plays gay roles quite often, and he says he enjoys it. His most recent portrayal is in indie film, “4 Days” where he is paired with Sebastian Castro, who is openly gay. These kind of roles seem to excite him, so we’ll definitely see more in the future.
