Ever wondered who that actor is on Gloc-9's latest music video? Nahuli namin ang "Sirena"! He is Abner Torres Delina, Jr! And MYXph got to chat with him EXCLUSIVELY during the "Mga Kwento Ng Makata" album launch of Gloc-9.
When asked about working with Gloc-9, Ebe Dancel and video director Jay Pacena, the theater turned music video actor has this to say: "Masaya ang proseso ng pag-shoot ng sirena at sobrang klaro kay Direk Jay kung anong gusto niyang ma-achieve kaya sobrang saya ngayong lumabas na ang video. Sobrang overwhelming at nakasama ko si Gloc-9 at si Ebe Dancel. mga mahuhusay na musikero ng henerasyon na ito."
He had nothing but praises for the rapper saying: "Naniniwala kasi ako kay Gloc-9 eh. Isa siyang makata at natutuwa ako na mas marami ang makakadinig ng musika niya, ng mga tula niya."
"Sirena" tackles the plight of a gay person and reminds us that we all should respect members of the LGBT community. It is said to be the first song and music video that relays this kind of story in a first person point of view. "Lahat ng stereotype (about gay people) actually na sinira din, yun yung interesting sa take ni Direk Jay at sa sinulat ni Gloc-9," the "Sirena" actor added.
This is Abner's first venture in music video acting as he is more active in theater. He recently played the role of a young Jose Rizal on Philippine Educational Theater Association or PETA's award-winning production "Batang Rizal".
