Rob Gomez: ‘The Cool Bad Boy’ of Showbiz
I have always had a strong belief in the cultivation of talent.
When I think of the names that have become “Regal Babies” in the recent few years, there is one name that stands out above all in terms of having that elusive magical factor and that name is none other than that of the resident cool bad boy of Regal, Rob Gomez.
I still vividly recall the very first time I saw Rob Gomez in action as an actor in an indie film. I got the impression right away that he exuded bravado, swag, and a certain air of awesomeness, which qualities are reminiscent of young actors who were popular in the 1990s. In a nutshell, the man is a throwback to an era that has long since passed, during which period it was not unusual to find someone with his form and presentation. Indeed, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find someone of Rob Gomez’ representation in today’s local showbiz world.
As times continue to change in show business and more people are simply after looks (physical appearance) and not personality per se, it does leave the industry in a bit of a vacuum in that, sure, there are a lot of good-looking actors around, but more than half of them just do not have the magical and elusive factor that will carry them through the long run. In addition to that, they don’t have much of a personality either, to begin with.
Now, this is not meant to be discouraging nor disparaging; rather, the purpose of bringing this up is to bring more awareness to the fact that if the industry is going to continue producing top-tier talent, then there must be a proactive effort to find, discover, and develop more actors in the mold of Rob Gomez.
As Rob Gomez has shown, it is much better to be true to yourself even though that might differentiate you from everyone else. To point out, Rob Gomez shows he is certainly aware of who he is. He is comfortable in his own skin. He embraces his own person and has the bravado to just be himself. That is what makes him stand out. Ultimately, this is how he has been distinguished from the throng.
Rob Gomez is someone we should continue to keep an eye out for.
Indeed, Rob Gomez is deserving of the moniker I have given him, which is “The Cool Bad Boy of Showbiz.”
