MANILA - Despite not making it big in Hollywood last year, actor Sam Milby said he is still happy, citing his career here in the Philippines.

He said that he is "a lot happier now" because he is given the opportunity to take on more challenging roles.

"I am happy. Now I am a lot happier now. It seems that I'm given, in terms of roles, especially, itong last na teleserye na ginawa ko I was given something different. It was the series with Judy Ann, medyo gray 'yung character, medyo iba. It's like bipolar. I'm enjoying trying different roles and different things," he said, referring to his role in the defunct primetime series "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala."

Still, Milby said he is still not giving up on his dream of making it big in Hollywood.

"I think it's any actor's dream to go and work in Hollywood. It's always gonna by my dream to work there. But I’m very, very contented here," he said in his guesting on ANC's "Headstart" on Friday as he promotes his newest film, "Kimmy Dora: Ang Kiyemeng Prequel."

"It's also extremely hard to get in there and I'm very content here. I love my work, I'm so happy with all the blessings that I have here. It is still something that I want to pursue if I have time because, you know, I have great representation and people believe me over there and they really think that I can make it," he added.

Milby went on to say how the auditions "are itself an experience."

“For me if I have time I’d love to go even just for auditions because the auditions itself are an experience and a way to grow. I felt I have a great experience from the last time that I got to do the auditions," he said.

After auditioning abroad, Milby returned to the country to shoot the film "Four Sisters And A Wedding."

He also worked with Santos and KC Concepcion in "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala."
