Martin Del Rosario admits he is happy to do another horror role in 'Amorosa'


081612-martin-main.jpgAfter being part of the thriller-horror movie The Healing, Martin Del Rosario shows off his love for horror with another challenging acting project in Skylight Films’s Amorosa: The Revenge. “I play the role of Amiel,bata pa lang ako dito, humina na yung eyesight ko, pawala na siya dahil sa genes ng mommy ko. Nabulag ko hanggang paglaki bulag pa rin ako tapos may mangyayaring tragedy na mag-reresulta na lumipat kami sa ibang buhay not knowing na sa bahay na yun meron pa lang namatay dun. dun magsisimula lahat ng adventure,” he shares during the presscon held last August 15 at the White House restaurant in Quezon City. The movie also stars Angel Aquino and Enrique Gil who play Martin’s mother and older brother. “Mabait kasi akong anak dun, mabait din kapatid. Opposite ako ng kapatid ko dahil medyo rebelde yung kapatid ko. Ako naman yung mabait kaya andun ako para suportahan yung nanay ko at saka yung kapatid ko tuwing may mga mangyayaring problema,” he tells Push.com.ph.

Martin also shared that he enjoyed working with Angel and Enrique on a movie. “first time ko sila pareho makatrabaho ngayon sa movie. Masaya, parang magkaka-age lang kami, lalo na si Miss Angel walangpressure, walang stress. Si Enrique kilala ko naman siya matagal na, nakaka-workshop ko na siya kaya kahit nung magkita kami dito first time parang matagal na din kami magkakilala so very comfortablenaman kami sa isa’t isa.”  The young actor says he did not hesitate to get the chance to be part ofAmorosa because he is really a horror fan at heart. “Mahilig ako sa horror. Bata pa lang ako, fan na ako nila Chuckie, mga ganun at saka yung mga brutal na mga movies, mala-Wrong Turn, yung mga ganun. Kaya first time ko yung The Healing na mag-horror so natuwa naman ako tapos after ng The Healing nasundan kaagad ng isa pang horror na mas madugo pa. so ayun nakakatuwa kasi yun ang favorite ko eh, horror, tapos lagi akong napupunta dun. kung papipiliin ako, horror kasi gusto ko panuorin. Sarole siyempre depende yan, kunwari drama, iba-ibang roles. Pero kung sa movie lang, horror talaga,” he explains. 

Martin also says it as a different kind of acting challenge to pretend to be blind. “First time ko gumanap ng bulag. Nung una medyo mahirap para sa akin kasi pag bulag, kailangan tagos lagi yung tingin mo kahit may malapit kang tinitingnan, dapat parang malayo tapos yung movement mo maliliit kumpara sa ibang roles na gagawin mo, dun siyempre normal na galaw lang. yung bulag nakaupo lang talaga, bibig lang talaga yung gumagalaw at saka kung paano mo aartehin na with feelings na talagang boses lang kasi hindi mo ma-express. Medyo mahirap siya pero okay naman siya,” he reveals.

Catch Amorosa: The Revenge in theaters starting August 29. Directed by Topel Lee, it also stars Empress, Carlo Aquino, Ejay Falcon, Jane Oineza and with the special participation of Xyriel Manabat.
