While the project is largely still being kept under wraps, a new and exciting development about the much-awaited LizQuen series Make It With You just came in: Enrique Gil is sporting a new look!

As revealed in their first pictorial for the Croatia-set teleserye, it is now the actor’s turn to rock a new hairstyle and, boy, does he look great! From his short, neat cut, Enrique now flaunts a wavy hairdo as part of his character, Gabo, who is a young man on a journey of finding his true happiness when he meets Billie, a free-spirited, family-oriented overseas Filipina worker—portrayed by his on-screen partner Liza Soberano—in Croatia.

While we certainly can’t wait to meet Gabo—and see Enrique’s fresh look in action!—here’s a look back at some of his most unforgettable and outstanding on-screen appearances to date! 

 

BAGANI

In the 2018 drama fantaserye Bagani, Enrique owned the “rugged” look (read: long hair tied in a man bun, battle suit, and tanned skin) as Lakas, a skilled swordsman and warrior from the Desert region in the fantasy world of Sansinukob. As his character, the 27-year-old star not only proved his acting versatility, but his willingness to go to great lengths to give justice to a role.

FOREVERMORE

Did you know that Enrique’s hair is naturally blonde in color? And he got to showcase his natural roots in the 2014 romance drama series Forevermore, where he portrayed the character of Xander, a rebellious child of a hotel magnate who falls in love with Agnes, the humble daughter of a strawberry farmer in La Presa, Banquet. Pretty interesting, huh?

MAALAALA MO KAYA AS JUAN PONCE ENRILE

Speaking of doing his role justice, Enrique took things up a notch higher when he portrayed Senator Juan Ponce Enrile in a special episode for the longest-running drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya in 2013—particularly in scenes where the actor was seen struggling at the hands of the merciless Japanese soldiers during World War II. A look far cry from his usual neat appearance, topped with his impressive acting chops? Bravo, Quen!

SEVEN SUNDAYS

As the youngest of the brood, Enrique nailed the “teenage boy” look (think: printed shirts, sweatshirts, and headphones as an accessory) when he starred in the comedy drama film Seven Sundays and brought to life the character of Dexter, the constantly misunderstood and underestimated bunso who never feels like he belonged in the family because he grew up without his siblings.

ALONE/TOGETHER

Enrique’s portrayal in Alone/Together was just as memorable as his fashion moments as the happy go lucky-turned-mature Raf. He had served a variety of dapper looks throughout the entire film, but whoever thought of putting Quen in a white coat-—while locking eyes with his equally gorgeous on-screen partner and real-life girlfriend, at that—surely deserved a raise!
