Makisig Morales says he is happy that his siblings Maliksi and Marikit are also in showbiz


070111-makisig_main.jpgNow that he is entering his junior year of high school, Makisig Morales is happy that two of his younger siblings have joined him in Star Magic. Eight-year-old brother Maliksi has already appeared various teleseryes like Mula sa Puso, Agua Bendita, Momay, and is currently seen in the action-drama series Guns and Roses. Five-year-old sister Marikit was seen on Kristine and in an episode of Maalala Mo Kaya.

Siyempre masaya ako na nasa showbiz din yung mga kapatid ko kasi hindi lang ako yung nakikita ko sa industriya ng showbiz. Hindi ba first time lang nila tapos kunyari magkasama kami sa isang serye, eh ‘di may matatakbuhan silang kuya na parang yung mga experience ko puwede ko sabihin at i-share sa kanila parang ma-she-share ko rin yung mga nakuha kong talents, ganun,” he told Push.com.ph.

Although he is always watching over the two on set, Mak said that it is really their  father who guides them on how to do well at work or in school. “Binibigyan ko sila ng advice pero madalas ang nag-a-advice talaga sa kanila si Daddy kasi si Daddy rin ang nagbibigay sa akin ng advice dati sa mga ginagawa ko. Pero matanong rin sila sa akin kaya pinagsasabihan ko rin sila kung ano yung tamang gagawin,” he added.

Mak also said that when he was the only actor in the family before, there was never any jealousy or sibling rivalry in their family. Now, he is even proud of his younger siblings and hopes that they will do well in showbiz. “Siyempre sobrang proud ako kasi dati si Maliksi parang sobrang kulit lang na bata na sumasama-sama lang sa amin tapos hindi naman rin niya ini-expect ‘di ba? Parang bigla na lang ganun, artista na rin siya,” he admitted.

When it comes to showbiz mentors, Mak said one of the persons he looks up to the most is The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition host Sharon Cuneta. “Siya yung nagturo sa akin na ang pinaka-importante talaga sa showbiz is huwag mo kakalimutan ang iyong fans. Ang nagturo sa akin niyan ay si Miss Sharon Cuneta. Pagka-iniisip ko na ganyan, na ‘pag hindi ko nakalimutan yung fans, na patuloy akong susuportahan. Kaya ayun ang sinasabi ko kay Maliksi, pagka may pagkakataon na mayroong gustong magpa-picture, pagbigyan niya at matuwa dapat siya na masaya sila para magpa-picture sila. Siyempre dapat masaya ka rin kasi nakapag-pasaya ka din ng ibang tao,” he explained.
 
Mak was also excited to welcome the newest addition to their family as his mom is currently pregnant. “Okay lang naman na ako na kuya. Sinabi ko nga kay mama eh, ‘pag boy yung anak niya, ako yung mag-aalaga. Eh boy nga so ako mag-aalaga!” he excitedly shared.

Currently gearing up for his latest project, Okatokat, Mak said his acting skills will be challenged with a role that is very different from the usual characters that he gets to portray. “Ang story dun, mga bata lang kami na parang pupunta kami sa mga iba’t ibang adventures. Medyo may kaibahan nga yung role ko dito kasi ang mga role ko dati mga siga, parang mga maton, medyo rough. Ngayon parang medyo nerdy-nerdy ako sa Okatokat so parang yung kilos ko laging straight body and may mga lines ako dun na mag-e-English ako. kaya kailangan memorize ko talaga yung script. Nasa amin na yung script kaya nakita ko narin. Okay naman sa akin,” he admitted to Push.com.ph.
