Xian Lim wants to prove himself in ‘Everything About Her’

MANILA, Philippines – Xian Lim hopes to prove himself as an actor in his upcoming film “Everything About Her” with Vilma Santos and Angel Locsin.

He admitted that like his character Albert, he feels strongly about proving himself.

“Similarities namin ni Albert, often misunderstood si Albert,” he said in an interview on Thursday. “He has a lot of insecurities regarding work. He’s a frustrated architect and he wants to show everyone na he can do it.”

“Pareho lang po kami, ‘yon din po ang frustration ko. Gusto ko ipakita sa tao na kaya ko,” he added.

The Kapamilya actor admitted that “Everything About Her” is his most challenging role to date. Aside from working with actresses Vilma and Angel, Xian said he went outside of his comfort zone for this project.

“Kasi una sa lahat ‘yong mga projects ko previously ever since nagsimula ang ‘My Binondo GGirl’ was with Kim [Chiu],” he explained. “Pero sa apat na taon po namin  nagkaro’n kami ng mga pelikula, gamay na gamay na namin ang isa’t isa. Pero sa pelikulang ‘to, it’s a learning process. I’m just really proud.”

After experiencing a different style of directing from Joyce Bernal and character internalization from Vilma and Angel, Xian thinks there have been changes in his “standards” when it comes to his acting.

“Yes nag-iba po. Hindi sa pagpili ng roles, hindi sa pagpili ng projects, pero ‘yong proseso po na ginagawa [for the role],” he said. “I won’t be selective with my projects. As much as possible, I want to tackle a lot of roles. I want to learn more. This project pa lang ang dami ko na natutunan. Very life-changing ang project na ‘to.”

“Everything About Her” is the first movie offering of Star Cinema for 2016, and will be in cinemas starting January 27.
