Pasion De Amor star Joseph Marco admit there was a time that he wanted the ABS-CBN series to end already.
However, now that the show is about to end on February 26, he can’t help but feel emotional.
He admitted in an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last Friday, January 29, during the finale press conference of Pasion De Amor, that he feels sad because he will be missing his co-stars on the show.
“May mga times dati na gusto ko na matapos kasi ang haba-haba na pero at the end of the day, it’s still a blessing, e.
“And lalo na ngayon na na-attach ako sa kanila, parang ayoko na matapos.
“Iyong iisipin ko pa lang na matatapos na kami by February 26, parang naiiyak na ako.”
Joseph counts Pasion De Amor as his longest show, with him saying that his shows usually end after one season.
The teleserye started airing June 22 last year, in the timeslot before TV Patrol.
The show also stars Jake Cuenca, Ejay Falcon, Arci Munoz, Ellen Adarna and his partner in the series, Coleen Garcia.
DARING SCENES. Pasion De Amor is known for its daring intimate scenes. Joseph’s character Franco is sometimes seen topless on the show.
In the story, Franco is in love with Jamie, the character played by Coleen Garcia.
Viewers of Pasion De Amor have seen the daring love scenes between Joseph and Coleen.
How did Joseph prepare for these kinds of scenes?
“Siguro comfortability din talaga kaya importante talaga yung get-together and team-building.
“I’m just thankful na bago namin gawin iyong mga eksenang yun, ang dami na naming tapings na pinagdaanan kaya komportable na ako sa kanila so I’m into my character, she’s [Coleen] into her character so kapag ginawa namin iyon parang swabe na.”
However, Joseph does not count his scenes with Coleen as the most daring he did for the show.
He revealed, “Siguro iyong love scene ko with Aubrey Miles kasi parang never ko pa na-experience na makipag-love scene with someone na veteran, and iyon nga parang topless tapos as in love scene. So yun yung pinaka-daring.”
It can be recalled that Aubrey was part of the early episodes of Pasion De Amor wherein she played the DJ ex-girlfriend of Joseph’s character.
What can viewers expect in their finale, which has been tagged as “The Hottest Finale?”
“Siyempre, si Franco and Jamie yung pinaka-nahuli [na nagkaayos]. Sa story ngayon, okay si Juan and si Norma, parang kami lang talaga yung officially [hindi pa].
“Abangan nila yung proposal ni Franco, iyong wedding scenes naming tatlo, maraming, maraming pasabog.
FOCUSING ON MUSIC. After doing Pasion De Amor, Joseph plans to focus on his music career.
“Meron akong upcoming single, medyo alternative siya and hopefully, magustuhan nila.”
The young actor is currently part of the all-boy group Harana, composed of Michael Pangilinan, Bryan Santos and Marlo Mortel.
Now that he will be releasing a single, does this mean that he will leave the band?
He answered, “Ah hindi! Kasi sila din, may kanya-kanya silang single, so parang binigyan kami ng kanya-kanyang single pero we’re still a band.”
It is still part of his bucket list to release a solo album in the near future. But right now, Joseph wants to continuously improve his singing skills.
“Well ako ever since gusto kong kumanta, I’m a frustrated singer and para magkaroon ng isang single, it’s such a dream come true for me.
“And I’m really looking forward and gusto ko rin talagang mag-develop and mag-improve pa sa singing career."
