In the Grand Press Conference of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano which occurred last September 21, Monday, the actors and actresses of the cast can’t help but praise and give credit to Coco Martin’s commendable working attitude and on his further improved acting skills. Three of these were the lovely ladies in the cast – Maja Salvador, Bela Padilla and Susan Roces.

At first, it were the directors, Malu Sevilla and Avel Sumpongco, who noted Coco’s working attitude. Direk Malu stated that there are 3 P’s whenever Coco is involved, “Perfection, passion and perseverance. As a director, working with him is really a dream come true. 4 times na for us (Direk Malu and Coco).”

Susan Roces then added that Coco is a well-rounded person and actor. “Napakahumble ni Coco.. stature niya na Teleserye King at popular na aktor sa pelikula. He has made a name for himself in films and also in indie movies. He honed his talent as an actor..”

“Masarap na katrabaho si Coco. He goes out of his way to say ‘Good morning’ or greet us or have a warm conversation with him. Very considerate actor. He’s always concerned about my age..about late night shootings. He gives way na ‘O, unahin niyo na muna si Tita Susan.’ “

She also thanked Coco for giving value and importance to FPJ’s works. “Maraming salamat Coco. Isa ka sa mga young actors na nagbibigay pahalaga sa pinaghirapan ni FPJ.”

“Ang working relationship namin (with Coco) ay ganun din nung panahon namin ni FPJ. I’m very very proud to be a part of this cast. Masaya ako sa ginagampanan kong role. Hindi masyadong malaki. Hindi po ako bida. Hindi ako ang leading lady ni Coco pero madalas ko siyang nakakayakap.”

Meanwhile, Bela Padilla echoed the notion on Coco Martin’s good working relationship with the cast of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. “Si Coco from Day 1.. katulad ng sinasabi ng lahat sobrang maalaga, sobrang tutulungan ka niya kung anong kailangan mo sa eksena. Nung umpisa talagang kinakabahan ako, talagang nangangapa ako. Step by step, he guided me to where I needed to go with the help of Direk Avel and Direk Malu…”

“Masarap po siyang katrabaho..masarap siyang panoorin. Nakikita mo yung process niya kung paano niya ginagawa yung character niya..”

The excited Maja Salvador was overjoyed on her reunion with Coco Martin and was really happy for the fans of CocojaM. “Yung first taping day ko, parang nakatulala ako kay Coco.. na parang si Coco ba ‘to. Madaming pinagbago. Pero maganda. Parang panibagong Coco yung nakikita ko. Kasi yung sobrang grabe na yung passion na nakita ko nung Nagsimula Sa Puso at Minsan LAng Kita Iibigin.. dito habang nagte-taping kami ng Probinsyano, iba-iba yung binibigay niya. Parang 1000%. Tsaka na-appreciate ko yung sobrang concern siya sa character ko. Yung pagpasok ng character ko. Pati yon inaalagaan niya. Pati yung atake namin dito. Ibang iba…”

“May mga plano kami..may mga suggestions kami na gagawin tapos nagugulat kami na yung mga plano na gagawin namin, mas napapaganda pa namin.”

“Maswerte po kami ni Coco kasi tulad nun ang tagal naghintay ng CocojaM. Maswerte kami na hindi bumitaw yung mga CocojaM..na apat na taon silang naghintay, nagtiis, nagre-request na kahit picture lang, makitang magkasama kami. At doble.. triple yung suporta na ibinibigay nila ngayong magkasama na kami.”

“Sobrang proud ako sa mga CocojaM fans kasi talagang wagas..kakaiba yung pagmamahal nila.”

The FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano Leading Lady then closed, “Kung nakita niyo na pong mahusay si Coco, ito yung pinakamahusay niya. Dito ako parang sobrang..Wow! Proud ako! Nakakaproud..”
