What role did Coco Martin (left) play in Aljur Abrenica's inclusion in FPJ's Ang Probinsyano? Coco revealed that it was actually his idea to include new Kapamilya Aljur in FPJAP.



Aljur Abrenica is officially introduced as the new character in the ABS-CBN top-rating primetime series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.

His inclusion in the teleserye coincides with the show's celebration of its 100th week on the air.

This also serves as the former GMA-7 actor's first teleserye with the Kapamilya network.

During the thanksgiving press conference of FPJ's Ang Probinsyano last night,  August 3, at Le Reve Events Place, Aljur told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other entertainment press that it was his new manager Jon Ilagan who negotiated with ABS-CBN.

He said, "Mabilis yung mga nangyari, e. Ganito na lang, after I ended my contract with GMA, yung manager ko, tinawagan ako.

"Kaya laking pasalamat ko sa bumubuo ng Probinsyano dahil nagkataon po na interesado sila sa akin.

"Then sinabi po sa akin ng manager ko na kailangan na naming pumunta ng ABS noong Monday.

"Noong nagpunta ako dun, doon na po ibinigay sa akin o nilatag ang character ko sa Probinsyano. Doon na nagsimula."

Note that previous reports mentioned that GMA Network decided not to renew Aljur's exclusive contract after it expired in March 2017.

Actually, it was lead actor and creative consultant Coco Martin's idea to include Aljur in FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.

Coco personally requested management to have Aljur as a guest in his primetime series.

He revealed, "Si Aljur, nabalitaan ko na papasok na sa ABS.

"E, matagal na po nagkausap na kami ni Aljur, one time nagkasama kami sa gym.

"Basta yung kuwentuhan namin na simple na yun, parang nakagaanan ko na siya ng loob kaagad, silang dalawa ni Kylie [Padilla], nakakuwentuhan ko.

"And then after that po, noong nalaman ko na papasok siya, hiningi ko sa management na sana makapag-guest muna siya dito sa Probinsyano bago siya lumipat ng ibang show."

Aljur's photos trended online after he showed his toned abs while riding a horse.

Aljur said about his character, "May-ari po kasi kami ng isang quarry. Ang tatay ko po ay si Mr. Jestoni Alarcon.

"Yung kabayo na 'yon, ang pamilya kasi namin, mahilig sa mga kabayo, ginagamit ko siyang pang rotonda sa quarry namin.

"Nagbabantay ako ng mga tao doon, sinisiguro ko kung ginagawa nila yung mga kailangan."

The 26-year-old actor admitted that he doesn't have any qualms doing topless scenes.

He explained, "Sa atin, bilang pong isang artista, kahit ano pong ipagawa sa akin, gagawin ko.

"Pero depende na rin po, siyempre, pupunta po tayo sa usapan ng management at saka ng proyekto kung hanggang saan yung pupuntahan.

"Pero bilang isang artista, handa po akong gawin lahat kasi, sa personal ko po, gusto ko rin mag grow bilang isang aktor at masasabi ko pong napakagandang oportunidad na mapabilang sa No. 1 show na teleseryeng ito sa Pilipinas na dito ko po huhubugin yung sarili ko."

Aljur also said that he doesn't know yet if his character will be a kontrabida, but he teased, "Masasabi ko na may pagka-bad boy."
