011813-coco-main.jpgAfter playing numerous roles in various Kapamilya teleseryes with the most recent being the blockbuster hit Walang Hanggan, Coco Martin admitted he is ready to step into a different kind of acting genre with the fantasy-action serye Juan Dela Cruz in 2013. “Sabi ko talaga, after ng Walang Hanggan. Siyempre nag sunod-sunod ako from Tayong Dalawa, Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo, Minsan Lang Kita Iibigan, at saka yung Walang Hanggan. Gusto ko kahit papaano naman at least medyo magaan naman, medyo relaxed. Action-drama pa rin pero hindi lang sobrang heavy, may comedy. Sinabi ko iba naman kasi gusto ko rin ma-challenge, ibang mundo naman,” he admitted during his presscon as the new brand ambassador of Max’s Restaurant held last January 15.

The Kapamilya heartthrob admitted he feels pressured about having his first solo series. “Hindi ko kasi dinidibdib yung ganun eh. Basta ako sabi ko, the more na naniniwala ako dun sa project at sa kuwento, sabi ko masaya ako. Ako tao ako, gagampanan ko lang yung sinulat nila. Kumbaga siyempre sana magampanan ko ng maayos. Alam ko yung pagpupursigi ko na magampanan ko ng maayos, yung pagsisipag ko sa trabaho, yun yung pundasyon ko sa kilala ko yung sarili ko eh na alam kong aayusin ko lahat. Sana magawa ko ng tama,” he said.

The 31-year-old actor said he takes his role in Juan Dela Cruz seriously, because he knows how influential television is especially to the youth. “Nagpapasalamat ako kasi ako’y kinonsider nila para dito sa project. Sana lang magampanan ko ng tama. Kasi bilang artista, may responsibilidad yun bilang tao eh. Kasi lalong-lalo na para sa mga kabataan, inspirasyon ka nila pag napapanuod ka nila eh. Sabi ko nga, sana mapanindigan ko. Hindi ko ina-assure [na perfect lahat] kasi tao ako eh. May mga bagay na magawa kong mali ‘di ba? Pero sabi ko sana maging magandang huwaran ako para sa kanila,” he said.

Coco said he will always choose to be level-headed about fame. “Sobra, kumbaga yun ang ano ko eh, yung huwag mag-expect. Parang hangga’t hindi ko ginagawa, hangga’t wala sa harapan mo, dapat okay ka lang,” he added.

Coco, who plays a half-man, half-aswang in Juan Dela Cruz, admitted he has always wanted to play a character with super powers. “Masarap kasi dumaan ako sa pagkabata eh. Di ba lahat ng bata nangarap maging super hero? Ngayon gagampanan ko sa soap opera, ayun masarap ang pakiramdam sobra,” he said.

When asked which superhero was his favorite growing up, Coco did not hesitate to answer. “Siyempre si Superman, yun ang basic eh. Yun yun eh.

The talented actor said he is also not worried about competing head-on with other series in the same vein. “Hindi naman ako na-pe-pressure pero sa akin kasi, honestly, sobrang taas ng respeto ko sa kapwa kong artista. Lalong lalo na kay Senator Bong Revilla kasi dati po kung alam niyo lang, sa Agimat na movie ni Jolo (Revilla), isa ako sa part nun. Isa ako ng mga tagahanga nila. Ano pa lang, Ramon Revilla senior pa lang. Yung mga pelikula ni Senator Revilla nung araw, bago pa si Senator Bong, kumbaga ako respect ako,” he admitted.
