Marco Gumabao admits he wants to play leading man to Sarah Geronimo in the future.
After his successful pairing with Anne Curtis in Just a Stranger earlier this year, Marco Gumabao said he is now more comfortable playing leading man to older women now that he is working with Lovi Poe in his next movie project. “Hindi pa kami tapos pero we started na. Okay naman. It’s fun. It’s a new working environment of course. First time ko sila lahat nakatrabaho pero at the same time ang dami kong natututunan sa kanila and it’s such a privilege na sila yung nakakasama ko,” he told PUSH during the LG Home Solutions Appliance Launch event in Makati City.
Marco admitted that he now wants to work with actresses who are older than him. “Actually parang mas gusto ko nga yung ganito. Parang you learn a lot also from them because they’re older, they’re more mature, mas matagal na sila sa industriya so yo get to pick up a lot of tips on the set in terms of acting,” he shared.
With his new leading man status, Marco said he hopes to get to play leading man with one of his fellow Viva artists. “Siyempre with Viva gusto ko si Sarah Geronimo. Nag-guest ako sa movie niya but siyempre being in a movie with her would be such a big privilege. Actually marami pa akong gusto makatrabaho. In ABS-CBN, gusto ko makapareho sila Maja (Salvador) kasi ang tagal ko na silang hinahangaan na artista,” he said.
Currently busy with his movie commitments, Marco said he is taking a break from television work. “Wala pa muna. Rest muna sa teleserye. Movies muna because kakatapos rin lang ng Los Bastardos so kailangan na rin ng konting rest from TV because siyempre people have to forget my character first. So siguro in three to six months we’ll rest it out muna. Maybe next year na ulit. Being busy is good. I’m ending 2019 with three movies,” he said.
