Joseph Marco is to star in the Ipaglaban Mo episode this Saturday, May 14. It is the actor's first stint on the show so he is ecstatic about playing a challenging role.
"Gagampanan kong role kasi ano siya putol 'yung kaliwang kamay niya, bulag 'yung kanang kamay niya. Nasabugan siya ng granada nong bata pa lang siya tapos paggising niya nasa ospital na siya. And then tatayo siyang parang tatay-tatayan nong ex-live in partner niya na ipla-play ni Helga Krapf. So don sa tatlong anak-anakan niya, 'yung isa don eh may gagawin siyang karumaldumal," he shared in an interview with Push.com.ph.
The actor admitted that it was tough playing the role, saying, "Because 'yun nga whole day nakatakip 'yung isang mata ko tapos parang kailangan kong itago ang left arm ko talaga. But then it's such a big help na may prosthetics ka. Nakakatulong sa character. Parang don pa lang may push na eh, but you know I enoyed protraying the role."
Joseph relayed that he is set to topbill two movies this year and a telesine.
Asked if he has a dream project in mind, he replied, "Gusto kong gumawa ng ano ng Walking Dead Philippine version, zombies, 'yung nag-sniper ka lang, nasa mall ka lang."
After being paired with various Kapamilya actresses, who does he want to work with as his leading lady next?
"You know what, I find Bela Padilla really pretty. And you know she just moved here. I'm looking foward to be working with her. Sana makatrabaho ko siya and of course Alex G (Alex Gonzaga) since 'yun nga parang bitin 'yung work namin together with Pure Love so sana makatrabaho ko ulit siya."
Joseph was also asked whether or not he dated his Pasion de Amor co-star Kazel Kinouchi since photos of them together were posted online before. Kazel was even Joseph's date to last year's Star Magic Ball.
He clarified, "No, never namin kami dumating sa part na 'yun. Parang nasa getting to know stage, but you know it didn't work out but we had fun, so no regrets. We're friends now so yeah wala talaga."
The actor said that he is single at the moment.
