Coco Martin was all smiles during ABS-CBN’s trade launch on May 7. After all, his series Juan dela Cruz has managed stay on top of the ratings ever since it premiered a few months back.
In a backstage interview, the Juan dela Cruz actor expressed his happiness with the continuous success of his show and acknowledged hard work as the primary reason of the positive results. “Masaya, sabi ko nga dahil siguro sa resulta ng paghihirap, napaganda namin ang show na tinangkilik ng tao.”
The actor is also excited about the upcoming spin-off series of the teleserye titled My Little Juan. “Nakaka-excite, sabi ko nga siguro naging successful ang Juan dela Cruz kaya nagkaroon pa ng My Little Juan sa hapon. Kaya sobrang nakakataba ng puso kasi sobrang sulit yung pinaghirapan namin.”
Coco was all praises for Izzy Canillo who portrayed the young Juan. “Para sa akin sobrang laki ng utang na loob ko kay Izzy kasi pinagbuti niya at napakagaling talaga niya sa pilot ng Juan dela Cruz kaya deserving na magkaroon ng sarili niyang show.”
Now that his professional career is going strong, the reporters from Push.com.ph, The Buzz, and SIR asked if the same goes for his personal life. Is he dating Julia Montes? “Actually hindi kasi nasimulan kasi nga sobrang busy talaga ng work ko. And then ako naman talaga parang sabi ko nga kung bibigyan ako ng pagkakataon. Si Julia naman kasi bata pa, kumbaga siyempre gusto ko munang enjoy-in niya ang buhay niya. Pero sabi ko yung paghanga at pagmamahal sa tao hinding-hindi mawawala.”
When asked if there’s a competition between him and Enchong Dee who is also linked to Julia, Coco said he is good friends with the actor. “Wala. Actually kaibigan ko si Enchong kasi nakatrabaho ko na siya sa iba’t ibang pelikula.”
