"It’s crazy. Honestly, hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala."
These were the words of Inigo Pascual as he described his experience bagging a role in the Hollywood series Monarch by Fox.
In an exclusive interview with MJ Felipe of ABS-CBN News, Inigo admitted that things haven’t yet sunk in for him.
"Every time someone congratulates me about it, hindi pa rin nagsi-sink in sa akin na it’s happening. It all happened so fast ever since I did the audition," he said.
The singer-actor relayed that he performed two songs for his audition.
"I had to sing two songs. One was a country song and one was a pop song," he shared.
He also relayed that he celebrated his birthday last September 14 on the set of Monarch wherein he shared a conversation with actress Susan Sarandon.
"She’s honestly so sweet. I had this talk with her on my birthday. I celebrated my birthday on the set and I told her all I want for my birthday is a picture with you. Sabi niya you’re so sweet. Tapos we had this conversation for 20 minutes and grabe sobrang down to earth na tao," he relayed.
As reported by Deadline, Inigo will play the role of 18-year-old aspiring country singer Ace Grayson in the series.
Monarch tells the story of the Roman family, who was dubbed as the first family of country music in Texas.
