Khalil Ramos talks about the demands of playing Felix, a young student in the throes of adulthood, in the Cinema One Originals 2016 Best Picture, “2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten.”

Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — For Khalil Ramos, his role as Felix in “2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten” is about finding the right step to make when treading the crossroads of young adulthood. “He doesn’t know where he fits, kung sasama ba siya sa nerds or kung sasama siya sa mga cool kids,” he says. Ramos admits that the character required a lot from him and the result is something to behold on screen: a slow-burning tale of coming-of-age riddled with desire and anxiety.

In CNN Philippines Life’s inaugural “Life on Screen” series, Ramos talks about the the perils of playing a character such as Felix and why acting is a profession that continues to amaze him.
