From marine biologist to actor

ON THE set of ABS CBNs Muling Buksan ang Puso in San Juan, Batangas, Enrique Gil told the movie press he wanted to be a marine biologist. But show business seduced him and his dream has remained a dream. He stars in the series along with Julia Montes and Enchong Dee and it will premiere this month. Gils interest in marine biology dates back when he was a young boy in Cebu where he was born. His father (Enrique Amadeo Gil Sr.) used to tag him along to the beach and they would often go scuba diving. Discovering the beauty of life under the sea, he had the urge study it further until showbiz stole him away from the sea. His busy schedule has put his desire to go back to school on hold and maybe for a long time. His mother (Barbara Anne Gil) intends to put up a business in which he will be a partner. That wont give him ample time for his planned study. Meanwhile, the 21-year-od actor is happy Muling Buksanhas given him the chance to work with Julia and Enchong. Here, he plays one Julias love interest, Enchong being the other.
