With his captivating looks, radiant smile, and irresistible charisma, Enrique Gil is no doubt one of the most handsome faces and sought-after bachelors today. More than just having a pretty face, he possesses a one of a kind inward character and admirable qualities that make him the ideal young man every girl dreams to marry.
A humble and kindhearted person
German philosopher Immanuel Kant once said, “He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” This statement proves so much truth in Quen. His love for animals is such a lovable trait for a man. This reflects how good he is as a person.
Despite all the praises and achievements he has been receiving, he remains to be grounded and focused in always trying to become better in his craft. He neither put people’s compliments in his head, nor negative criticisms in his heart. When involved in issues, he faces them just how a real man would, and answers questions with maturity. He admits his own mistakes, and sincerely apologizes whenever he wrongs someone.
Family, friends, co-workers, and fans testify Quen’s admiring humility and tenderheartedness. He gives equal treatment to everyone. He sees his fans as friends, and not as any stranger. No wonder why a lot of people love this young man. Also, beyond everyone’s awareness, he has a soft spot for kids and old people. He enjoys being with them, and is generous enough to have himself involved in charity events related to them.
A loving son and a caring brother
Behind the limelight, Enrique is a loving son to his mother and a caring brother to his siblings, Javy and Andie. When his father passed away in 2008, he took over as the bread-winner in the family by working in the showbiz industry. He always looks after his family’s needs, and values them very much. He’s not ashamed to show his affections toward his mom by kissing and hugging her in front of many people. His mom, Ms. Bambi Gil, once shared that Quen is very close to his younger sister. He always takes care of her since they were kids. As they say, you would know how a man would treat you by how he treats the women in his family. Just by looking at it, Quen is definitely worth for keeps.
A brilliant and promising actor
In his 8 years in the industry, Quen has proven to be a brilliant and promising actor. Throughout his series and movies, one would see how he has grown in the field of acting. Whether it would be kilig, suspense, heavy drama, or comic relief, he’d always nail it. His passion for his craft is very evident in how he superbly portrays every character given to him.
In his first indie film “Dukot”, a different side of Enrique Gil was seen. His depth was strongly felt by the audience. The director of the said film, Direk Paul Soriano, observed Quen to be a hungry actor. He always wants to learn more. His co-actors who are veterans in the industry, Ricky Davao and Christopher de Leon, praised Quen as an actor. In Tonight with Boy Abunda, Ricky Davao said, “Si Quen, he’s an actor. He’s very serious. Lahat nung traits of a good actor meron siya.” In the same show’s fast talk portion, Christopher de Leon was asked to describe Quen and he said, “He’s a good actor.”
In Dolce Amore, a serye which was top-rating and just concluded with a bang, Quen’s character went through 3 transformations. Giving distinction in every version was hard, but he obviously gave justice to each. From being the “Raketero from Tondo” that has a lisp to becoming a songwriter, and evolving into a cold-hearted businessman, he was able to carry the changes in his character very well. In this serye, he also showed how to convey his character’s emotions through his eyes. There were scenes that no lines were necessary for the audience to feel the anger, pain, jealousy, and love. His confrontation scene with “The Ms. Cherie Gil” on the third to the last episode was one of the most talked about in social media. His stellar performance garnered countless applause from people in the showbiz industry and the fans as well. Suffice it to say, Quen is indeed the most versatile actor of his generation. It is no doubt that he would eventually be receiving best actor awards endlessly. As long as he remains grounded, he truly is bound for greatness.
An absolute husband-material
Patience – a value which Quen has exhibited and continues to show as he waits for his amore, Liza Soberano, to become fully ready for a serious relationship. He respects Liza’s family, and understands their decision concerning their relationship. While the “go signal” has yet to be given, Quen takes care of the lovely lady, and cheers her up when she’s down. Throughout his interviews, he is very consistent in saying that Liza is the one he would spend the rest of his life with. He doesn’t mind waiting because he knows forever awaits their love for each other. Liza is so blessed to have an Enrique Gil in her life as much as she is a God-given gift to the young man.
Good looking, humble, gentleman, generous, patient, respectful, loving, talented, bubbly, thoughtful, compassionate, family-oriented, smart – these are the traits women definitely look for in men, and Enrique Gil totally got them all. Netizens would often say, “Pahinging isang Enrique Gil”. But sorry, his heart is already owned by a beautiful young maiden who has also captivated a lot by having similar characteristics as Quen’s. The 24-year-old young actor is definitely the kind of bachelor every lady wishes to have a clone of.
