Ipinahayag ng Fil-Am Hollywood actor na si Ryan Kolton na gusto niyang linawin na type niyang makapareha si Liza Soberano sa TV o pelikula, pero hindi niya nais guluhin o makisingit sa relasyon nina Liza at Enrique Gil.
Sinabi ni Ryan kung bakit gusto niyang makapareha si Liza.
Esplika niya, “You know why? She’s perfecto. Honestly, she’s the whole deal. She is nice. She’s kind. She’s a great actress. She’s kinda defines what true actor should be. Whether it’s acting or endorsement.
“I respect her a lot and it will be an honor to work with her. She’s the top of her game.”
Halo-halo ang dugo ni Ryan, dahil ayon sa kanya, “I’m Ukrainian, Spanish, American, Filipino.”
“So, I just got here. I just started learning Tagalog pero naintindihan ko. I know Spanish, Russian, Filipino and English… so Tagalog is gonna be the fifth language… it’s quite the process.”
What made him decide to come to the Philippines? “So, my Lola she’s from here. From Laguna area. So, naturally I grew up with a lot of stories about the Philippines and I loved it. You know, everything from the culture, the people, the way of life here, its things that I’ve always wanted to experience myself.
“So, while I was working in the US and also in Russia-cause I did acting and modeling around the world, I was slowly planning on coming and visiting the Philippines. At last, it was until like two and a half months ago, I received a really great offer that I couldn’t refuse and I finished my show in the US. So, I was like this is the perfect time. So, I jumped on the first plane and the minute that I landed, I was already working with Robinson in Mossimo, I did a campaign with SM, I went into Metro Gaizano.”
Nabanggit pa ni Ryan ang iba pa niyang pinagdaanan sa buhay bago napadpad sa ‘Pinas.
“I sing, I’ve danced before. I professionally danced when I was younger. I used to sing a lot as well. My background actually is very different as well cause I grew up as professional MMA fighter. I’m retired now. Yeah, full MMA, I’m trained in six different styles, and I have a black belt in each one.
“That was my life since I was five years old and it magically transformed into acting and modeling around when I was 16 years old. That’s when I was more into the States than I was in Russia, cause I was originally born in Ukraine. That’s where my story starts. But I moved when I was around like 16, I’ve fully moved to the US. So I went to UCLA in Los Angeles when I was about 18 years old. I did MMA throughout my child years and my teen years, and then did school. I did dance and singing while I was doing MMA. Then when I was in Los Angeles, that’s when I started my acting/modeling career and it brought me here,” mahabang saad pa ni Ryan na isang Tom Cruise look-alike.
Hilig talaga ni Ryan ang umarte, katunayan noong nag-aaral pa siya sa UCLA ay may mga nagawa na siyang mga proyekto tulad ng ‘Jay Rocco’, ‘Past Presence’, at ‘Compound 147’. Nakalabas na rin si Ryan sa ‘CSI’, ‘Law and Order’ at iba pang shows sa Tate, at umaasa siyang magkakaroon ng mga proyekto sa ‘Pinas.
