Actor Coco Martin received an award in the 2010 Anak TV Seal Awards program held December 8, Wednesday, for the Most Admired TV Personalities category. Coco mentioned in the interview afterwards that he has been really blessed this year, what with projects and awards coming his way.
“Sobrang thankful ako dahil sa lahat ng mgablessings na dumating sa akin. Unang-una sunud-sunod ang mga blessing na dumating sa akin dahil nanalo ako sa Golden Dove Awards (Best Actor) tapos napasali ako sa Walk of Fame ni Kuya Germs (Moreno). Tapos nagkaroon ako nitong Anak TV. Sobrang thank you lang,” explained Coco.
For 2011, the actor revealed that he is already working on his next TV series, where he will be working with Lorna Tolentino, Andi Eigenmann, and Maja Salvador.
On a personal level, Coco said that he will be spending Christmas with his family in Pampanga. He said that he is not treating himself to any luxurious gift this Christmas. “Siguro gusto ko lang mapasaya ko ang pamilya ko at magampanan ko nang tama ang responsibilidad ko para sa pamilya.” But he is hoping that the house that he is currently having built for his family will be done by next year.
Asked if he intends to have a love life by next year, Coco replied smiling, “Saka na ‘yon. Mahilig kasi ako sa trabaho. ‘Pag nagkataon kung meron akong mapusuan, bakit hindi?”
Although Coco is becoming a very in-demand actor and endorser nowadays, he said that he does not mind making bold movies, which he has made in the past in the indie film industry. The actor said that he will continue doing similar projects as long as a good script requires it. “Sa tingin ko naman hindi naman sagabal ‘yon (award). Sabi ko naman the more na naniniwala ako sa proyekto, wala sa aking makakapigil kasi para sa akin artista ako, trabaho ko ‘yon,” he justified.
The actor was also asked about the recent confrontation that ensued between fellow actors Jake Cuenca and Jason Abalos. It was reported that had not it been for Coco, Jake and Jason could have possibly engaged in a fistfight. “Meron lang bagay na hindi nagkaintindihan. Napag-usapan na rin nung araw ring ‘yon,” said Coco while refusing to reveal the cause of the confrontation. He said that he treats Jake and Jason as his brothers so he would not allow them to hurt each other. “Normal lang naman ‘yon. Sabi ko nga sa bawat tao minsan nangyayari ang mga ganong bagay. Ang importante naayos."
