Things You Still don't know about Sam Milby
The few hours of hanging around the hotel was nothing compared to the more than 3 years of wanting to have Sam Milby as a guest on The Morgan Show. You can just imagine how delighted I was that it finally happened, almost 700 Miles outside Manila, in the Tuna Capital of the Philippines, General Santos City.
I first requested for this interview right before Sam left for Hollywood. When he came back, he got so busy that it was never materialized. I tried pushing for the interview when I visited him on the set of ‘Wansapanatym’ and ‘Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala’ 2 years ago but the situation didn’t permit me to do so. I didn’t lose hope. I know it will still happen but I didn’t think it will be right after the Chinese New Year and Valentines! This must be a lucky year for me that the wooden horse brought him to where I was.
This year marks Sam’s 9th year in the industry. 8 years of that included the undying issue of his sexuality. It’s pretty outrageous that Sam would be in a position where he would need to comment from time to time on matter regarding his sexuality than just concentrating on his craft and improving his talents and capabilities. The showbiz world revolves around a judgemental society who has innate love for intrigues and scandals. They have aggressive thoughts that they wouldn’t mind hurting people just as long as they get to air their opinions on matters with what only their eyes have seen and their ears have heard.
I’ve known Sam for around 6 years now and never was an instance that I saw traces of homosexuality. I know one when I see one! Sam is even more of a ‘straight’ and more of a gentleman than the many celebrities we have in the industry. Not because he is soft spoken and has that extra kindness would mean that he is gay. He is just a compulsive and a shy guy.
For those of you who have been regularly checking my magazine and my posts, You know that I have always been vocal in pointing out things and issues that need to be addressed. This is not a discourse to defend him but just an article for you to know him better the way I did.
Sam is one of the most likable and lovable celebrities. I first met him few years after he got out of the Pinoy Big Brother House. He has always been the same person that I’ve known; humble, kind and accommodating. He is apprehensive but loosens up when he is comfortable with the person he is with. He suddenly becomes loquacious and shares a lot of stories. I’m always ecstatic whenever I’m with him and having that precious little moment & conversation. What's more nice about Sam is he does not only appreciate the love, care and support coming his way but he also values them.
I Love Sam! He is not perfect so anyone else but we all can have a perfect moment with him. His presence brightens the surrounding. His smile is enough to turn a bad day into a blissful one. His eyes sparkle like there are big stars in a gloomy night.
I’m sure you will all be happy to see him act again! He will be back on Primetime this March as he takes the role of a merman on ABS-CBN’s Teleserye remake of #Dyesebel. He plays the character of ‘Liro’ a new character that was added on the Mars Ravelo masterpiece. Sam will discuss more of this new project on the video below.
By the way, Sam recently opened PROST in Fort; a german pub and restaurant. Prost means Cheers in German. The resto takes pride of an abundant selection of sausages and mains that any meat lover will absolutely go for. Prost is a bistro where people dine in for a starter. If you want to grab a bite before heading to a party or clubbing, then Prost is the place for you.
Next month, he is opening another business, Third District, a specialty coffee shop in Katipunan right across Ateneo. He went to Hongkong and had a crash course in coffee making and blending for this venture. Sam has extra ordinary love for coffee and he’s very happy that he is more involved in the process and operation.
Sam, who will turn 30 this May, is definitely A dream guy! Any woman would be so fortunate to have him as a significant other. A heartthrob, A racer, A singer, An actor, A businessman and most especially A handsome being; inside and out. Undoubtedly one of the most desirable bachelors we have in our country.
