" Sam Milby doesn’t mind being second choice "

What’s wrong with being second choice?
Nothing at all, says Sam Milby, especially if you’re replacing someone like Piolo Pascual.
“This is a privilege. Siguro naman depende kung sino ang naging kapalit. But coming from (Piolo, it) is a privilege. If (it was) someone different, ayoko na magbanggit ng names, (ibang usapan na),” Sam, who took Piolo’s place in the “Kimmy Dora” prequel, told Yahoo! Philippines OMG!
He added, “Siyempre it worked out for me since matatapos na 'yung "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala". 'Yung movie na gagawin ko with Anne (Curtis) and Cristine (Reyes), si Direk Chris Martinez din. And siyempre 'yung management ko, Spring Films din which is Piolo's [production studio].”

Sam was referring to his other comedy film in the works, Chris Martinez’s “The Gifted” under Viva Films, which happens to be his reunion movie with former girlfriend Anne Curtis. They were last seen in the romantic-comedy film "Babe, I Love You" in 2010.
This early, the Kapamilya actor has dismissed any chance of getting awkward with Anne.
“Okay naman kami. It's been four years. Hindi naman kami friends na nag-uusap lagi, pero yes nag-uusap kami.”

Sam explained acting in two comedy films calls for a drastic change in acting style.
“It'll be a big adjustment coming from such a heavy teleserye ("Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala") and going to all that comedy. Exciting naman. Siyempre kapag comedy magaan naman… a lot easier a lot more fun.”
While he looks stiff on TV because he’s usually typecast in rich, suplado roles, Sam insists he has sense of humor too.
“Oo naman! Siguro 'yun ang side na hindi pa nakikita ng mga tao. Andaming roles na nagawa ko na... masungit, romantic. This is something different for me. Sana maipakita talaga 'yung [funny] side of me.”
But unlike other men, Sam said he doesn’t use humor to attract girls.
“Ako kasi most of my life ako 'yung shy. Kapag kumportable ako sa mga tao [doon na lumalabas 'yung humor].”..
