    John Prats revealed that playing a gay role used to scare him like mad especially when he did it for the first time in "Ako Legal Wife," a Metro Manila Film Festival entry of Regal Entertainment last year.

    His role required him to don a womenís attire and he was ordered by his director, Joel Lamangan, to shave his hair, especially in his underarm. John won a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his role in the movie.

    John again plays gay in the teleserye, "Crazy for You," which partly was taped in Barcelona, Spain. "I supposed itís getting used to it that matters. Ngayon, I donít mind if in my next movie or TV assignment, I will be asked to do another gay role. Ang importante ay kung ano ka ngang totoo," he related.
