Marvin Agustin is thankful that he was allowed to do the movie 'Ang Tanging Ina, Last Na 'To' in his former home network.
Former ABS-CBN contract star Marvin Agustin was taken aback by the changes inside the Kapamilya network when he took part of Ang Tanging Ina, Last Na 'lsquo;To press conference last December 2. "Kinabahan nga ako e.'nbsp; Iba na hitsura ng (ABS-CBN) compound.'nbsp; Ang dami nang harang.'nbsp; Dati labas-pasok lang kami," was Marvin Agustin'rsquo;s feelings about stepping in the station where his career was launched years ago.'nbsp; 'nbsp;
Marvin started out his showbiz career with ABS-CBN back in the mid 90'rsquo;s, and in 2003 he played the eldest son of AiAi Delas Alas in the very first Ang Tanging Ina film made by Star Cinema.'nbsp; When the sequel Ang Tanging Ina Ninyong Lahat was made in 2008, Marvin was already working for rival station, GMA 7.'nbsp; "Dapat nand'rsquo;un ako pero hindi lang tumugma sa schedule ko sa kabila," he revealed. 'nbsp;
When he was told that a third and final installment was in the works, Marvin swore that he would do everything to be part of the film.'nbsp; So when he figured that he could squeeze in the project with his current schedule, he wrote a letter to his management to ask permission.'nbsp; "Buti na lang talagang nasa franchise ako kasi kung hindi, I think it would be hard na i-cast pa ako at mahirap rin sa akin to ask permission.'nbsp; Nakakalungkot naman kung ako pa 'lsquo;yung magiging dahilan para hindi makumpleto uli 'lsquo;yung cast sa huling installment.'nbsp; Kaya tuwang tuwa ako sa kabila kasi they allowed me."
In this age of 'lsquo;exclusivity,'rsquo; most contract artists have found it very difficult to do projects in other networks or productions.'nbsp; That'rsquo;s why Marvin considered it a big privilege that he was able to do a movie again with Star Cinema.'nbsp; He confessed though that since it has been five years since he left ABS-CBN, the first shooting day of Tanging Ina 3 became a refreshing experience.'nbsp; "Ibang logo 'lsquo;yung mga nakikita ko, ha ha ha!'nbsp; Akala ko talaga hindi na ako makakabalik.'nbsp; Nung inaayos pa lang kasi ang schedule, hirap pa akong paniwalaan.'nbsp; Kaya dito sa third hindi na ako masyadong umasa.'nbsp; Kaya hindi ako makapaniwala na heto na at natuloy."
Does this mean that Marvin is open to becoming a Kapamilya star once again?'nbsp; "Loyal ako, kung saan may trabaho, ha ha ha," the actor laughingly explained.'nbsp; Marvin added that he will honor his existing contract.'nbsp; "I still have a contract with them until September next year.'nbsp; I'rsquo;m very happy with them naman so far."
