After working with Hero Angeles and Marlo Mortel who play his older brothers in their episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya, Sky Quizon said he and his co-stars have a lot in common in real life. The three actors play brothers who lose both their parents and are raised by their grandmother.
“First time ko silang makatrabaho. Si kuya Hero napaka kuya talaga. Na-ga-guide niya kami si kuya Hero. Very kuya talaga. Sa aming tatlo, nag-print talaga siya ng hard copy ng script. Si Marlo naman, iniinis niya lang ako, wala akong natutunan sa kanya (laughs). Pero sa totoo si Marlo ang dami kong natutunan sa kanya, pinapanuod ko nun yung Be Careful With My Heart before so may mga nakuha akong mga style sa acting sa kanilang dalawa,” Sky shared during the MMK mediacon.
Aside from sharing a common love for their grandparents, Sky also revealed that he is dedicating his work on MMK to his grandmother who passed away late last year.
“Similarity naming tatlo siguro yung pagmamahal sa family. Given that the story is about family, we’re very much family-oriented. Recently I lost my grandmom in November last year so sobrang lapit ng kuwento sa puso ko kasi parang I’m doing it for her. I’m doing it for my lola, na sana proud siya na mapanuod ito. That’s what I think yung similarities naming tatlo. Sa differences naman, well ako yung hindi mukhang kapatid kasi napalayo ako bigla kasi sila moreno tapos yung bunso mukhang hindi Pinoy,” he said.
Sky also shared why it is important for viewers to catch MMK this weekend because of how inspiring their episode is.
“I think the story reflects Filipino culture. Specifically family culture kasi di ba napaka-Pinoy na pag nakatapos ka you would give back to your family. Minsan pag ikaw yung panganay ipagpapatuloy mo yung pagpapa-aral sa mga mas nakababata mong kapatid. It’s about that. So I think every Filipino family would be able to relate dun sa story nung tatlong magkakapatid kasi it’s driven by love yung ginagawa nila. And any Filipino family ay ganun yung ginagawa. Nagtatrabaho tayo para sa pamilya natin. Gusto natin maibigay what they deserve and more sa family natin. So it really reflects every Filipino family. Kung gaano kapursigido yung mga anak, yung mga apo, na mabigyan ng magandang buhay at para maging masaya yung pamilya nila,” he added.
