Kelvin Miranda reflects on how ‘Dead Kids’ affected his career

As one of this year’s breakthrough stars, Kelvin Miranda looked back a part of his journey of being an actor. After starring in critically-acclaimed movie Dead Kids, his popularity among Filipino viewers has grown exponentially. This 21-year-old young artist has shown impeccable acting performance in the said movie directed by Mikhail Red.

Kelvin played the role of a less fortunate, introvert student, who has always been a victim of bullying. The film also featured Khalil Ramos, Vance Larena, Markus Paterson, and Sue Ramirez.

Kelvin on Dead Kids journey

In an interview with PUSH, Kelvin shared how his role Mark Sta. Maria affected his career — in a good way.

“Ang naging epekto siguro nito sa akin, eh, nagkaroon ng tiwala sa akin yung mga taong hindi naniniwala sa akin noon. Mas nagkaroon ako ng oportunidad sa larangan ng pelikula at telebisyon. Kahit papaano, naramdaman ko na rin yung respeto mula sa ibang artista na hindi ako ganun katanggap dati. Totoo po yon, pero masaya ako na nakamtam ko na yon at laking pasasalamat ko at kung ano yung nabago sa akin ay pahahalagahan ko nang sobra,” he shared.

As a newbie actor, Kelvin, of course, felt overwhelmed with all the positive feedback from film critics.

“Para  sa akin, medyo nag-hope din po ako talaga na mapapansin ang performance ko sa movie, kasi ito po talaga yung kauna-unahang pelikula ko na mabigat talaga yung role ko, hindi pa naman kasi ako sanay na magbida talaga, eh.

“Sobrang kabado ako nung una, kung ano ang magiging pagtanggap ng director, ng mga co-actors ko, at lalo na ng mga tao sa ginawa ko dahil sila ang makakapanood ng pelikula, buti na lang, maganda talaga yung naging outcome,” he said.

After Dead Kids, did he receive movie offers?

“Sa totoo lang po, nung natapos yung Dead Kids, masyado na po akong nalimitihan dahil sa comparison nila about sa role ko sa Dead Kids. Siguro yung iba nahihiyang mag-offer ng mas maliit na role. Pero hindi naman po kasi ako namimili ng role. Kung anong ibinigay na project ng management team ko ginagawa ko lang po,” he explained.

FYI, Kelvin just won his first best actor award at Urduja Film Festival for the film The Fate.
