Alden Richards candidly talked about the difficulties of creating his Victor Magtanggol costume.
In a report aired on 24 Oras on June 22, the GMA-7 actor said it has always been his childhood dream to play this kind of role.
“Alam naman ng karamihan na super fan ako ni Iron Man, so yung mga secret dreams ko before was really to play a superhero role.”
He observed that the costume allowed him to move freely, especially when doing fight scenes.
”Surprisingly ang ganda nung movement. Parang magaan siya isuot.”
He then described the painful process of doing a body cast.
“Isang oras kang babalutan ng material na parang tumitigas. Masakit, pero para talagang tailor-made yung costume, kailangan yun, e.”
The costume underwent several revisions and Alden said he is satisfied with the final design, which was created entirely in the Philippines.
“Everything is purong Pinoy. It’s all Filipino talent, Filipino effort, blood, sweat, tears, all in one project. So ito yun.”
