Makisig Morales reveals what he misses most about working on with Dolphy


020112-makisig_main.jpgAfter gaining popularity with his first lead role in Super Inggo back in 2006, former child star Makisig Morales makes his television series comeback in the upcoming teen horror show Oka2kat which was inspired by the original Oka Tokat series which aired for five years until 2002.

The 15-year-old singer-actor admitted he is challenged by his newest role as the bookworm Neil. “Yung role ko dito is hindi tulad nung mga nagawa ko ng shows dati. Dito ngayon more serious siya and talagang knowledgeable siya. Challenging yung role ni Neil kasi parang ito yung other side ko naman na pagiging matalino tapos parang gusto ko maging valedictorian. Puro aral siya, wala siya talagang adventure sa buhay niya, puro books. Sa bahay lang siya, yan lang ginagawa niya. Challenging kasi ibang iba dun sa mga nagawa ko na na mga shows. Mas challenging ito,” he said during the Oka2kat presscon held last January 31 at the ABS-CBN compound.

Although he has been making guest appearances in various shows since Super Inggo finished airing, Makisig admitted that he wished his aborted fantaserye Utoy, which he shot with Dolphy, had pushed through. “Oo naman gusto ko sana matuloy yun kasi si Tito Dolphy yun. Parang it was an honor na makasama si Tito Dolphy. Medyo sayang lang po. Hindi biro yung ginawa namin dun kasi madalas kami sa ilog. So nabababad babad kami dun at sobrang pinaghirapan naming yung show na yun. Nag-shoot kami dun pero yun nga, dun sa pilot episode mukhang dun nagka-aberya. Hindi ko alam kung anong nangyari. Yan lang ang pagkakaalam ko talaga,” he revealed.

Makisig said that he had learned a lot from the local King of Comedy. “Wala na talaga akong masabi. Sobrang bait ni Tito Dolphy. Actually binibigyan niya ako ng mga advice pagka nandun kami sa set… kasi nung bata pa ako, medyo malikot likot pa ako nun. Sa kanya rin ako matuto na mag-focus talaga at yung hindi lang basta-basta yung work na ginagawa namin. Kaya nag-work hard talaga ako kasi siyempre kasama ko si Tito Dolphy kaya yung kilos ko medyo limited lang, tamang likot lang,” he recalled.

Makisig also shared what he misses most about Dolphy. “Siyempre nami-miss ko siya. Sobrang nami-miss ko si Tito Dolphy kasi nami-miss ko yung mga advice niya, nami-miss ko siya mismo. At saka wala talaga akong masasabi kay Tito Dolphy, sobrang bait na tao talaga,” he stressed.

The talented teen actor said he is not worried at the reaction from the public now that he is a child actor no more. “Magugulat naman sila. Ako natural naman sa akin kasi hindi ko rin talaga ramdam na lumaki ako (laughs). Pero kung ano ako, sino ako, steady pa rin ako na ganito. Lagi ko naman sobrang feel na bata pa rin ako lalo na pag kasama ko yung mga kasama ko dito sa show. Pag nasa set, ini-enjoy lang namin yung work namin. Tapos siyempre pag may time for play, nagple-play naman kami,” he said.
