Markus Paterson on working with Heaven Peralejo on MMK: ‘We have that connection that just comes naturally’

As part of the longest running drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya’s episode lineup this month, actor Markus Paterson talked about his latest role as Heaven Peralejo’s romantic interest in the episode Strangers Online.

“Greg loves so fully and it really wasn’t hard to feel that love in this episode kasi hopeless romantic din ako eh. And it’s very easy to work with Heaven. I’ve known her since she was 16 and I was 17 so we have that connection that just comes naturally. And it’s our first time working together acting-wise surprisingly. I’m just proud of the whole episode and honored working with direk Raymond (Ocampo) again,” he said.

Having joined showbiz over six years ago, the Fil-British MMK actor shared how he approaches every character he portrays onscreen.

“Every time you do a role or you act, it’s always best to put yourself in your character’s shoes para mas authentic yung performance mo. It’s also good to use something from your past or your own personal experiences pero kung wala talaga it’s a lot easier to just become the character and then try your best to give an authentic performance. For me, wala naman akong hugot in this episode,” he revealed.
