He was the Bad Boy that never was.
In most of the movies he had played parts on, he’s always the villain… the “evil nemesis”, the antagonist.
Bad cop, playboy, bad politician, brat rich boy kid, philandering husband…
Any kind of “bad” character, name it, Lance had portrayed it.
The corrupt bad detective in “A Thief, A Kid, and A Killer”.
The Bohemian playboy in “Alaala Ng Tag-Ulan”…
The sex-starved lover in “Gemini”…
The philandering husband “A Journey Home”…
BUT THAT WAS LANCE RAYMUNDO, THE ACTOR.
AND LANCE RAYMUNDO, BEFORE.
Because Lance, indeed, IS THE “BAD BOY” THAT NEVER WAS.
He may have portrayed many Bad Boy characters in the past, but that was Lance, the ACTOR. And not Lance, the PERSON.
In real life, Lance is one very kind man. A loving one. Gentle, loving, reassuring … warm.
A good son, brother, friend and “Papa”.
They say that in showbiz, or as an actor, Bad Boys are more colorful and challenging to become ONE.
But for Lance Raymundo, it’s ENOUGH.
ENOUGH of all those BAD BOY CHARACTERS.
It’s a high time for a new phase on Lance Raymundo’s movie career as an actor.
He is now soaring for a GREATER HEIGHTS.
After portraying Jesus Christ in the recently-concluded Senakulo 2015 last Holy Week, it seems now, that SOMEONE UP THERE is preparing Lance Raymundo or wanting Lance this time to show GOODNESS in his capacity as an actor.
And it’s a blessing in disguise, that, three good movie offers and three movie directors were shocked when they saw Lance’s NEW SELF. A total change of AURA AND LOOKS.
And these three directors could not cast Lance anymore in their films because he’s looking like an ANGEL, and not a EVIL PERSON.
Hindi raw babagay na kay Lance sa hitsura niya ngayong mukhang anghel ang mga Bad Boy roles nila na ibinibigay kay Lance.
So they begged-out Lance in their films.
AND THAT’S GOOD!
For Lance, it’s just the start of SOMETHING NEW.
He is moving forward, with a greater mission as an actor.
He is upgrading, leveling-up … CONQUERING A FAR GREATER HORIZON.
YES, LANCE RAYMUNDO.
THE BAD BOY THAT NEVER WAS.
BECAUSE EVER SINCE, HE NEVER REALLY WAS BAD.
HE IS AN ANGEL…
AND A “PAPA” OF “2”…
(as the words were written, by robert manuguid silverio, recorded in his “book of love”- amidst the clouds and rainbows of hope and love with a loving FATHER, dated May 11, 2015 and in a separate time dimension of ETERNITY.*)
