Tonyong Bayawak lead star Coco Martin revealed that he started to become comfortable with challenging roles when he was immersed in the primetime teleserye Tayong Dalawa.
"Yung experience ko sa Tayong Dalawa, nakatulong ngayon dito sa Tonyong Bayawak. May mga action scenes kasi doon. Ang kaibahan lang, may prosthetics ako dito at may powers," Coco shared. "Naeenjoy ko po yung mga ganitong klaseng role dahil bukod sa challenging, masaya siya. Di ka lang kasi basta bibitaw ng linya. Pati galaw sa mga eksena lalo na yung maaksyon dapat controlled rin."
According to the show’s director Dondon Santos, "Portraying action roles is one of Coco Martin’s strong points. He breathes life to strong characters with a breeze. Kaya niyang kumawala sa comfort zone niya." Direk Dondon helms the Saturday TV series Agimat presents Tonyong Bayawak.
