So Viva is pushing for this little showbiz newbie named Yam Concepcion to be their next cinematic sex goddess. We say she has the makings of a Pinay Kate Winslet–that award-winning actress who disrobes in most of her films–not to mention an incredibly hot bod, so we went with Yam as cover babe for our October 2012 issue. And we couldn’t be prouder with the results.
The 23-year old Viva stunner leads the revival of sexy cinema via the steamy, erotic adult drama movie Rigodon, coming out on November 21. Directed by Erik Matti, the genius helmsman behind Scorpio Nights 2, Balahibong Pusa, and Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles, Rigodon is all about secret lives, hidden passions, deceit, betrayal, vengeance, and peeping eyes. Check out the movie's posters below to get even more excited! (We know we did!)
Yam plays the role of Sarah, a woman in despair who shares a passionate night with Riki, only to find out that the guy she’s seeing is a former teen star who is running away from bosses, loan sharks, and ex-wives. Synopsis pa lang, pang-award na! And if any of the previous Erik Matti films are any indication, Yam is in for some heavy acting (and disrobing).
"I want to be known as someone who takes off my clothes but can act,” says Yam. “I’m a person who likes to challenge myself even when pushed to the limit. That’s how you test yourself; see how you deal with everything that comes your way. I’m just trying to be strong and versatile. I’m risking it all, that’s how life is—you have to risk it and go out of your comfort zone, try different things and learn from it.”
Mark your calendars and let’s make a pact: we will all be watching Rigodon when it hits theaters on November 21, oks? Also, don’t forget to swing by FHM TV this Thursday, November 8, to get a look at the teaser trailer for the film.
