Character actor Mon Confide recently trends on social media as he once again proved that he is indeed one of the most notable actors that we have today.
On his Facebook account, he shared some of the Hollywood characters that inspired his own portrayals.
According to Mon, he takes pride on taking inspiration from such great movie characters and has always been passionate on giving them life.
“My film character pegs,” he said about the series of photos.
“In Filipino context, it is an expression of taking ‘inspiration’ from an ideal person or thing.”
On the compilation, you can see how he uses Kevin Bacon in Death Sentence, Jack Nicholson in The Shining, Viggo Mortensen in The Road, Gary Oldman in True Romance, Christian Bale in The Machinist, and Mads Mikkelsen in Death Stranding as references on his films.
Fans commended he actor for his unconditional love for his craft and even said that he deserves to be one of the national artists.
On an interview with PEP.ph last 2018, Mon revealed that he considers no limitation on portraying roles given to him on his every project, even if it means he might risk his own life.
Iyong working attitude ang importante, dahil alam mo naman ang indie, medyo limited ang budget.
“So, yung mga artistang maaasahan, kumbaga, ang kailangan.
“So, well, isa ako sa napapabilang sa supporters ng independent films,” he said.
He also said that he does not mind displaying nudity in front of the camera once the director wishes so.
“As an actor, wala akong limitations. Hindi ako nag-aalala sa mga frontal-frontal na ‘yan.
“O kahit ano pa mang ikamamatay ko, alang-alang sa industriya. Ahh… right timing lang.”
