Coco Martin reveals why he decided to go solo at the ABS-CBN Ball 2018


 

Before walking the red carpet at this year's first ever ABS-CBN Ball, Coco Martin shared he was happy to finally be part of the prestigious by-invite only event attended by all the stars in his network. The talented actor also says he was happy to support an event for the benefit of the children for Bantay Bata. 

"Masaya ako kasi may purpose yung ball. Hindi lang para mag-gathering kami o magkaroon kami ng bonding, or para sa glamour or mapakita kung ano yung magagandang damit. Ito kasi may purpose, kumbaga maganda yung hangarin ng ABS-CBN para magtulungan para sa ating kabataan. Sana makatulong kaming mga artista sa mga kabataan," he stated. 

During media interviews at the ball, Coco also said  he prefers to go solo during events even though his Ang Probinsyano co-star Yassi Pressman was not too far from him at the red carpet. 

"Hindi wala, alam mo naman 'pag ganito kadalasan kasama ko yung mga co-actors ko sa Ang Probinsyano. Yung sa amin ni Yassi actually nakakatuwa para sa amin talaga na yung mga tao natutuwa sila lalong lalo na sa character ni Alyanna atsaka si Cardo. Nakaka-proud kasi talaga namang pinaghihirapan at pinagtatrabahuan namin yun. Pero as Yassi and as Coco talaga namang magkakaibigan kaming lahat at talagang nagmamahalan kami," he revealed.

So close is Coco to his co-workers that during a recent Ang Probinsyano party, Coco generously shared his blessings with the staff of his long-running show. 

"Kasi yun yung bilang pasasalamat ko sa lahat ng mga nakatrabaho ko sa tatlong taon. Kasi nga sobrang hirap ng paggawa ng Ang Probinsyano. Kaso nakita niyo naman action, drama. Yun naman ay pagbibigay tanaw sa lahat ng paghihirap na ibinigay nila sa amin kaya sobra akong nagpapasalamat sa kanila. Actually lahat kaming mga artista. At saka very tight, talagang pamilyang pamilya ang turingan namin dun sa isa't isa," he explained.

When asked how things are with his rumored real-life leading lady Julia Montes, Coco deferred from answering directly about their status. "Si Julia mabait naman. Maayos naman si Jules. Hindi lang kami nagkikita kasi nga dahil hindi kami magkasama sa work pero maayos na maayos naman lahat. Siyempre nakakatuwa kasi marami din kaming mga pinagsamahan na project ni Julia. Pero alam naman natin na lahat kami alam naman namon yung gusto namin mangyari na mag-focus muna sa trabaho kasi ang mga kabataan ngayon honestly pinaghahandaan niyo yung future, hindi pangsarili ha. Siyempre una, pinaghahandaan muna namin yung para sa family namin. And at the same time yung para sa amin rin," he told the press.
