Gary: Arnold Reyes

More than being a very talented film, TV, and theater actor, Arnold’s attitude and work ethics is an inspiring breath of fresh air. After the dire need of the production for a new actor to play the role of Gary, he is indeed a blessing for the production. And he is undoubtedly the best "Gary" to play the role.

This is his first time to collaborate with Rianne and it has been a truly wonderful experience to have him portray one of the film's major characters.

A familiar face on television, Arnold Reyes did numerous ad campaigns. He was a featured model for Smart, PLDT, McDonalds, San Miguel Beer, Downy Fabric Conditioner, Wrigley’s Orbit Chewing Gum, Lucky Me, Sarsa ni Mang Tomas, Talk N’ Text, Benadryl, Kawasaki, Bacchus, Knorr, among others.

For theater, he acted for: "Hamlet Redux,” Atlantis Productions’ "Rent Manila," Actor’s Repertory Theater’s "Romeo and Juliet" and "Florante at Laura," CCP’s entry to the International Theater Festival 2006 "Zsazsa Zaturnnah Ze Muzikal" for which he was voted Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his performance as Dodong (Best of Theater 2006, Philippine Daily Inquirer), and “Orosman at Zafira,” an entry to the “1st International Komedya Fiesta” of the University of the Philippines Centennial Celebration.

He is also into song writing. His song "Paano Na?" interpreted by Bituin Escalante garnered Second Prize Honors at the Metro Pop 2000 Song Writing Festival. In 2003, his composition "Kung Ako Ba Siya?" interpreted by Piolo Pascual made it to the Finals at the Himig Handog Love Song – winning him the coveted Texters’ Choice Award.

He also proved his versatility as an actor playing various roles for renowned independent films including "Big Time," "Pisay," "Ang Huling Araw Ng Linggo," “Imoral,” “Manila,” “Adela,” and “UPCAT.”

He’s also part of the ensemble in Camera Café, the five-minute French comedy show which was adapted by some of the country's leading playwrights to suit Pinoy sensibilities. Arnold also starred in the ABS-CBN “teleserye” “Dragona” and French producer Henri de Lorme’s and director Mark Meily’s “You Women.”
