Kapuso leading man Rocco Nacino feels lucky that he is given another big project by his home network. GMA7.
He is part of the upcoming primetime series, Beautiful Strangers, which is slated to air next month.
In a recent interview, Rocco said it makes him even more motivated to excel and never stop studying his craft and be a role model for other aspiring actors.
“To know that GMA is taking really, really good care of me by giving me good projects, nakakataba ng puso. It makes me even more humbled and motivated na magtrabaho, kasi naiisip ko na for someone as simple as me can make it, it gives me that responsibility to other people especially the younger ones na nag-aaspire na maging actor din, na kung nagawa ko, kaya rin nila.”
Being a home-grown talent of GMA 7, Rocco is happy with how his career is going right now. In fact, aside from working anew with Kapuso Premier Actress Lovi Poe in Beautiful Strangers, he just ticked off one of the items in his bucket list – finally working with Heart Evangelista in a series.
“Nakakatuwa na gusto ng mga bosses na makatambal ko silang dalawa (Heart and Lovi). So napakaswerte ko. Finally, makakatrabaho ko na si Heart. First time ko to work with her and I’m really, really excited.”
He also considers it a privilege to be working with seasoned Christopher de Leon, Ayen Laurel and Dina Bonnevie that is why he makes sure not to be intimidated by their presence.
“I make it a point not to be intimidated by anyone. It’s my personality. Kahit sino ang kaharap ko, kakausapin ko siya professionally on and off cam. Hindi ako nagpapapressure or nagpapasindak. I always maintain respect pero hindi ko hahayaan na ma-intimidate ako kasi mawawala talaga ako sa game ko.”
Beautiful Strangers premieres this August on GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.
