Coco Martin shares experience working again with Susan Roces in upcoming soap
092615-COCO_main.jpgCoco Martin shared that he chose to do most of his stunts in his new project FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. “Halos [ako gumawa ng stunts] po kasi nagtutulungan po talaga kami nina direk Avel (Sumpongco) at direk Malu (Sevilla). Siyempre as an actor pag nandon ka na, pag nandon ka na sa eksena na talaga, alam mo ‘yung mas feel mo ‘yung kapag ikaw mismo ‘yung gumagawa po,” he said.

With this action-drama project, Coco relayed that they came up with scenes close to the situation in the modern world. “Para sa akin kasi siyempre sabi ko nga po never nating mapapantayan at malalampasan ‘yung mga ginawa ni FPJ pero sa henerasyon natin ngayon gusto nating makagawa ng upgraded na mga sitwasyon, sabi nga namin pakitaan ng ano ba ‘yung ibang maiihain natin sa kanila,” he said.

Coco relayed that he is really working hand in hand with the team behind the soap to come up with a great series. “Siyempre alam naman po natin na galing ako sa drama and then kumbaga pangalawang beses na gagawa ng ganitong klaseng soap opera and then nagtutulungan po kami,” he said.

Coco is working with FPJ’s widow Susan Roces in the soap opera. The actor was all praises of how caring the veteran actress is on their set. “Kay tita Susan honestly hindi lang po sa akin kundi sa buong set talaga pong siya ‘yung nanay namin. Sobra niya kaming inaalagaan at parang laging piyesta, breakfast, lunch, merienda, dinner and then kami nila kuya Dennis pag may time po kami, may problema kami, whatever ang naiisip namin, pinupuntahan po namin siya sa tent niya, nakikipag-one on one kami, nagkwe-kwentuhan,” he relayed.

Coco said that he actually seeks advice from Susan. “At sabi ko nga po kung meron man si tita Susan na hindi matatawaran, ‘yung wisdom niya bilang isang tao. Grabe pag nasalita siya, kapag kahit napakabigat ng problema mo, maliliwanagan ka. Hindi ko mapaliwanag, sabi ko nga po, iba po siya eh, laging [doon] siya kung ano ang totoo, kung ano ang tama,” she said.
