In an exclusive interview with PUSH.com.ph, Marco Gumabao revealed that he already fulfilled his dream role when he played a killer in an episode of Ipaglaban Mo.
“Dream role, actually nagampanan ko na siya sa Ipaglaban Mo. ‘Yung parang twisted mind ako, parang killer ako dun. I want challenging roles. ‘Yung parang hindi talaga ako. I want to see kung kaya kong magportray ng role na gano’n,” he said.
Marco played an obsessive lover who killed his love interest (played by actress Michelle Vito) after getting jealous in the informative drama show based on actual events.
The 21-year-old actor shared that he idolizes Kapamilya stars Piolo Pascual and John Lloyd Cruz because of their humility.
“Hindi porke’t na sobrang sikat na sila pero ang galing galing kasi nilang artista. And, kahit sobrang sikat na sila, humble pa rin sila. So parang even though na kahit anong marating mo, dapat importante, you keep your feet on the ground,” he elaborated.
Marco also thanked his supportive fans. Recalling a time when his family went to their hometown in Bicol, Marco shared, “May mga fans na pumunta sa amin and nabigay ng food so sabi ko, maraming, maraming salamat kasi nagbisita sila, nag-effort sila para pumunta sa amin.”
