Coco Martin says he can relate to his role as Tonyong Bayawak

As detailed in previous ABS-CBN.com reports, Coco Martin admitted that his role in Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla Sr. Presents Tonyong Bayawak requires a big adjustment for him as an actor. From doing heavy drama scenes in his previous projects, he now executes action sequences. Given Tonyong Bayawak’s storyline, Coco says he has prepared himself for everything that will be required of him and he is looking forward to the show reaping good results. “Nakaka-six taping days na kami, I think seven days pa kumpleto na. Sana talaga magkaroon ng bunga lahat ng mga pinaghihirapan namin, sana magdere-derecho ‘yung mga magagandang ratings na nakakamit ng series na Agimat.”

ABS-CBN.com asked Coco what trait he shares with his character and he answered, “‘Yung pagmamahal sa pamilya. Siyempre likas naman sa mga Pilipino ‘yun, either sa girlfriend mo o sa magiging asawa mo o sa mga anak mo kasi ganun ako, e. Ang priority ko talaga pamilya more than sa lahat and huli talaga ‘yung sarili ko kaysa pamilya.”

He said that he feels that he is more effective as an actor if he is touched by the show’s story. “Kung baga ako kasi lagi kong sinisiguro na every time may ginagampanan akong role nakaka-relate ako para at least may ma-contribute ako dun sa character ko. Ayoko kasi na parang ako mismo hindi ko pinaniniwalaan ‘yung character ko. ‘Pag ganung point nagi-isip ako kung dapat ko bang tanggapin [‘yung role] o hindi pero ‘pag napatunayan ko na naiintindihan ko at maipaiintindi ko sa mga manonood ‘yung gusto kong maipakita sa kanila, okay ako dun.”

Having said that, Coco shared that he wants to give back to his family and relatives for all their support for him. “Sa ngayon, gusto ko marami akong matulungan lalo na yung mga kamag-anak ko kasi ang hirap ng buhay ngayon at ngayon na kahit papano marami akong blessings na natatanggap dapat siguro suklian ko sila kahit sa maliit na paraan ng pagtulong.”
