Coco Martin speaks up about Yassi Pressman and the ‘end’ of ‘Ang Probinsyano’


 

“Ayoko nang palakihin, hindi naman totoo,” said Coco Martin about the recent video that showed him allegedly kissing his Ang Probinsiyano leading lady, Yassi Pressman. He maintained that there’s nothing to it, and charged it to people being drawn to their characters on the TV series. Coco chose to see it as a sign that Ang Probinsyano is still doing well. “Siguro natutuwa lang ‘yung mga fans. Natutuwa ako na kinikilig sila kasi siguro nadadala sila doon sa kwento.”

 

As a director, he is all praises for Yassi. “Si Yassi talaga magaling. Kailangan mo siyang i-guide, then after that, ibibigay niya sa ’yo ‘yung hinihingi mo.”

 

Coco has taken on huge responsibilities on the show. Not only is he its lead actor, he is also very active behind the scenes. For him, any success of the show is really a big win for himself as well. “Nakaka-inspire, nakakatuwa. Kuwento ko ‘yun e. Siyempre masarap sa pakiramdam, kasi ako din ang nag-didirect, nagsusulat.”

 

He assures the fans that there is still much to look forward to. “Napakahaba pa ng tatakbuhin ng kwento!” In fact, a lot of new characters are still being introduced, one of them being Jolo Revilla. Coco revealed that the Revilla family was one of the first who saw his talent. “Extra-extra pa lang ako, tapos sina Tita Lani at Tito Bong ang naka-discover sa akin. Ginawa akong main kontrabida ni Jolo sa isang pelikula niya sa Metro Manila Film Fest, ‘yung Agimat. So ngayon na ako naman ang may pagkakataon na bumawi, ako naman ‘yung lumapit kay Jolo na sana mag-guest siya sa show ko.”

 

There have been speculations that the show will be ending by early next year, but Coco debunked the rumor. “Wala pa talagang definite plan kung kailan siya matatapos,” he clarified. “Kapag naramdaman namin na wala na kaming kuwentong maibibigay, kailangan na naming tapusin. Pero hangga’t tinatangkilik pa siya ng mga tao, hanggga’t may maibiigay pa kaming kwento, hangga’t nakaka-inspire pa kami ng mga tao, nandiyan pa din ang Ang Probinsiyano.”
