Dominic Ochoa said that he is grateful for the opportunity to portray the role of a superhero in the upcoming ABS-CBN show My Super D. “I am very thankful of course. It was an early Christmas gift for me because they told me about this before Christmas, napakagandang pamasko ito sa akin. Ayon nagpapasalamat ako na nag-umpisa na kami last Feb and we airing in how many days so siyempre masaya ako,” he said in an interview with Push.com.ph.
He added that what he is more excited about is the chance to impart good moral lessons to the viewers. “I’m excited dahil maganda naman ‘yung aral na gusto namin iparating sa mga manood. I think that is the most important thing sa akin kaya excited ako. Dito I became a tool para mabigyang aral ang mga tao.”
What were his preparations for the role? “It’s a learning stage, we didn’t have time to prepare. I had to lose weight a little and nagtra-training ako ng a little bit of martial arts and then mahirap po kasi ‘yung harness so it’s very important na I try to do ‘yun hangga’t makakayanan ko gaya kahapon buong araw naka-harness kami. I’m thankful na ‘yung mga kasama ko I worked with them already at napakadali katrabaho.”
Dominic reunites with his friend Marvin Agustin on the show. When asked what he feels working again with the actor after ten years, he replied, “Kaya ako na-excite. I think the last time we worked together was 2003 or 2004 Whatta Men pa, bascially 10 years ago.” He quipped, “Wala namang pinagbago, kasi makunat pa rin siya (laughs) ganon pa rin naman ‘yun.”
He added that he is thankful that he gets to star on the same show again with Marvin. “I’m thankful na nagkadugtong-dugtong, it’s a very light drama and comedy hindi naman sagad comedy kasi realistic ‘yung gusto nating mangyari sa katatawan nito so as much as possible we play for truth so yun. Excited ako na makasama si Marvin at hinihintay pa rin namin na manlibre siya ng siopao niya ang tagal na non eh,” he said.
