MANILA, Philippines -- Actor Enchong Dee admitted that doing the film "The Reunion" is a "breather" for him.

"I have the feeling na after this I have to go back to serious characters and it's such a breather kasi after doing teleserye na naging dad ako, old image, parang ang sarap gumawa ng ganito," Dee said in an interview with "Mornings@ANC" on Tuesday.

Dee's last acting project was the ABS-CBN soap "Maria La del Barrio" with Erich Gonzales.

"I'm so thankful na lahat ng nakasama ko (dito sa 'The Reunion'). They are willing to bend whatever they had before, like si Kean (Cipriano) from music siya. Si Direk (Frasco Mortiz) it's his first full-length movie so ang ganda ng collaboration namin. Even the love teams sa pelikula na ito are not the usual love teams na nakikita mo sa TV. So, everything in this movie is experimental and first," the actor explained.

Dee said he really enjoyed playing his role Lloyd in the movie since they share many similar traits.

"Parang it was easier for us to go to that character kasi it's closer to us. Parang nerdy, conservative at ako 'yon," he said.

"The Reunion" opens in theaters nationwide on August 15.
