Skinny, long-haired, and laden with tattoos.

This is the look nowadays of former teen heartthrob Felix Roco, who is in the cast of the upcoming TV5 drama series “Positive”.

His current appearance is quite a departure from his former wholesome matinee idol image. It also significantly differentiates him from his twin brother, fellow actor Dominic.

“It’s better na rin sa amin ni Dom na magkaiba ang itsura… Mas OK na ring ganito itsura ko, tapos si Dom ang prim and proper,” he told News5.

Felix admitted that his physical appearance tends to document some significant events in his personal life. Case in point is the elaborate tattoo of a woman’s face on his left arm.

“Nagpapalagay ako pag may pinagdadaanan ako sa buhay,” he said.

During his teenage years, it was reported that he did not see eye to eye with his father, acting great Bembol Roco. How is their relationship now?

“OK lang. We’re on good terms,” he said.

Felix then confessed that he turned to recreational drugs during those years when he rebelled against his father.

“Yeah, it was a phase, yeah.. Ayun, yes… Paminsan-minsan kasi hindi natin maiiwasan iyon, di ba? Nadadala rin kasi ng pera,” he said.

However, Felix noted that all that is in the past  and he has already learned from his mistakes. “Natututo rin naman tayo. Doon tayo natututo sa pagkakamali natin,” he said.

Felic is very thankful that, after overcoming his personal demons, he still found a niche in the industry. He plays the rocker best friend of lead star Martin Escudero in “Positive”, which will premiere on TV5 in October.
