Sky Quizon on his role in Tabig Ilog The Musical: “Definitely nandu’n ‘yung pressure”

The classic ABS-CBN youth-oriented drama Tabig Ilog got the comeback it deserves via Tabing Ilog The Musical. In fact, the theatrical reimagining of the hit 1999 teen drama features this generation’s promising stars. One of them is PBB alumnus Sky Quizon, who is playing the role of Rovic, originally played by John Lloyd Cruz.

Sky on his preparations for his role

In an interview with PUSH, he was asked if he tried reaching out to John Lloyd Cruz to seek advice on how he should play the iconic role.

“Well, what I did was I tried watching ‘yung mga Tabing Ilog na clips. But parang even the management — I don’t know if they were able to contact John Lloyd na ma-invite manood because medyo MIA [Missing In Action] siya ngayon,” he said.


Sky, who is not new to theater acting, shared his preparations for his role. “So as much as I want to reach out and ask for tips kung paano niya binuhay si Rovic before, I just did my own homework. Ako na lang ‘yung nag-research. Pinanood ko siya. At siyempre dati pa siya. Tinitingala ko na siya before pa,” he shared.

Big Thing

ABS-CBN introduced a number of promising male stars, and Sky bagging the role of John Lloyd is really a big thing, of course.

Is he pressured?

“Well, sobra. Definitely nandu’n ‘yung pressure kasi it’s a big, iconic role before. [Tapos] bida si John Lloyd. Pero ako sobrang blessed lang, thankful na sa akin binigay [at] pinagkatiwala ‘yung role ni Rovic ni John Lloyd before,” he said.

Gusto ko lamang mas galingan at ipakita na kung paano ko bibigyan ng hustisya ‘yung character ko,” he added.


Moreover, Sky assures that he will give new flavor to the character through his perspective on the various issues confronting the youth today.

“Definitely kung paano ko tingnan ‘yung mundo ngayon, ‘yun ‘yung nilagay kong flavor at timpla kung papaano ko gagampanan ‘yung role ni Rovic,” Sky said.

Tabing Ilog The Musical runs from March 7 to April 26 at the Dolphy Theater located inside the ABS-CBN complex.
