With the Valentine’s Day release of his Dreamscape Digital movie Apple of My Eye, Marco Gumabao said he is happy and proud of his latest project which will be streamed online for free on iWant and partners him with new leading lady Krystal Reyes. He admitted his latest role as an app developer is a big challenge. “Lahat naman ng characters na pino-portray may challenge because you want to portray it properly and hindi makita yung Marco kundi yung character na pino-portray mo. It was fun kasi very totoo yung story. It happens in our everyday lives. So yung love na makikita niyo dito is nakakatuwa siya kasi dito may isang tao na mahirap abutin at saka isang tao na simple pero sila pa yung nagkakatuluyan. Di naman malayong mangyari,” he said.
Aside from Apple of My Eye, Marco is also busy preparing for his next film project called Just a Stranger. “Busy (laughs) sa trabaho ngayon. May ginagawa rin akong movie now. Mag-sa-start na kami. It’s going to be with Anne Curtis under Viva so I’m really excited for that and kinakabahan ako at the same time. Aside from Los Bastardos, yung movie ginagawa ko so walang time para mag-date. Next year na lang siguro (laughs),” he said.
Marco said he will not be celebrating Valentine’s this year because of work and not because he is heartbroken. “This year mukhang hindi happy eh (laughs). Mukhang taping lang ako this year pero okay lang hindi ako nagrereklamo. It’s a good problem actually. So marami pa namang Valentines. Marami pa namang taon na natitira sana. Pero now trabaho muna tayo,” he added.
As a self-confessed romantic, Marco said his idea of an ideal date is very simple. “Kung may oras lang for this Valentines, I’d take someone to the beach. Pero work muna. Lagi naman ako happy. Even though I’m single I’m always happy. I don’t need a girlfriend or someone to say na happy ako because alone or with my family or my friends, I’m already happy. So I’m content,” he shared.
