“Thank you for plac­ing your bet on a name­less ac­tor like me,” said ac­tor Chris­tian Bables af­ter he snagged the best ac­tor tro­phy at the re­cently con­cluded 2018 Hanoi In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val in Viet­nam. Bables played “In­toy” in “Sig­nal Rock,” a quiet movie about a pro­vin­cial boy help­ing his sis­ter, an over­seas Filipino worker, win a child cus­tody case by in­volv­ing their neigh­bors in a re­mote coastal com­mu­nity. “Sig­nal Rock,” di­rected by Chito Roño, is the coun­try’s nom­i­nee to the best for­eign lan­guage film at the 2019 Academy Awards in Hollywood. Bables, 25, is slowly mak­ing a name for him­self in the indie film­mak­ing scene with films like Jun Lana’s “Die Beau­ti­ful” and this dra­matic Roño ve­hi­cle. “I will con­tinue to hone my craft so that I can bring to life more sen­si­ble char­ac­ters in the fu­ture,” Bables de­clared. “Stay true to that burn­ing pas­sion in­side you,” he told aspir­ing ac­tors who, like him at some point, were on the verge of giv­ing up on their craft.
