Sid Lucero, On Top of the World with Emmy Nomination and Top-Rating Program

Alyna, sid lucero
Actor Sid Lucero marked another milestone in his young career after being nominated for Best Actor at the 2010 International Emmy Awards for his performance on the ABS-CBN teleserye “Dahil May Isang Ikaw,” which is also nominated in the prestigious award-giving body for Best Telenovela.

Sid, who currently stars in the top-rating afternoon drama “Precious Hearts Romances Presents Alyna,” said he is very proud to be the only Filipino actor up for a trophy in the prestigious award-giving body.

“I was somewhere, having my tattoo done when I heard about it. Ang weird ng timing, namimilipit pa ako sa sakit. I was so happy. Di ako makapaniwala. Naramdaman ko na lang na totoo when people started texting and calling me. Then tiningnan ko ang website and read my name there, tapos parang ah, totoo nga,” he shared.

Like Angel Locsin, who earned a nod at the International Emmys last year, Sid is excited to attend the awarding ceremony and possibly mingle with actors like Bob Hopkins and Helena Bonham Carter.

“My dad (Mark Gil) said, ‘Just remember that you will not go there as yourself.’ I told him, ‘Yes dad. I am going there as the proudest Filipino ever,’” said the award-winning actor.

Even his co-stars in “Alyna” praised the acting prowess of Sid. “It’s always an honor to be working with one of the most talented actors in the industry,” said Shaina Magdayao.

Jason Abalos, who once tied with Sid in Gawad Urian for Best Actor in 2008, revealed he is amazed by how his rival in the show transforms to his character during takes.

“Ako kasi observant ako. ‘Pag may nakikilala akong magaling na artista, kinikilala ko yung pagkatao nila eh. Si Sid, ‘yung buhay niya parang ang gaan lang pero pag nag-emote na siya sa isang eksena, parang ang bigat-bigat na ng mundo niya,” he explained.

With or without the nomination, the talented trio is very proud of their show’s strong ratings. And one of their fans is no other than Martha Cecilia, who wrote the pocketbook where “Alyna” was based.

“Narinig ko nga na sobrang nagustuhan niya ‘yung scene na pinaanak ni Dominic si Alyna. Maraming salamat din sa kanya for creating Alyna, Dominic and Rex. Napakaganda talaga ng istoryang isinulat niya,” Shaina said.

Rancho Del Carmen will be rocked again by major confrontations as Rex (Sid) returns to fight for Alyna and their child. Will Alyna (Shaina) take back the man who deceived her or continue with her blooming romance with Dominic (Jason)? What will Lilet (Kaye Abad) do when she finds out that her husband Rex married and impregnated another woman?
Get all the answers on “Precious Hearts Romances Presents Alyna” from Monday to Friday after “Rosalka” on ABS-CBN.
