Martin del Rosario names his dream leading ladies in GMA: Lovi Poe because “nagagalingan ako umarte”, and Kylie Padilla and Heart Evangelista, “kung sa ganda ganda.”


It was May of last year when Martin del Rosario announced that he will be transferring to GMA.

He was given a guest role in the series Rhodora X, and also appeared in different episodes of the drama anthology Magpakailanman.

But he has not been given regular teleserye since then. Isn't he bothered by this?

“Hindi naman kasi actually, kaka-sign ko lang ng October.

“'Tapos nag-promise sila ng project early this year, kaso lang na-move siya, which is heto naman, parating naman na yung project na hinihintay ko.”

While waiting for his big project, he will be doing a guesting in the Dingdong Dantes-starrer Pari ‘Koy.

“Mag-ge-guest ako in Pari ‘Koy. 'Tapos yung the rest kasi, medyo confidential pa siya, hindi ko pa puwedeng sabihin.

“Hindi ko alam kung primetime siya, pero a big project.”

Will he be having a love team in this new teleserye?

“Yes meron. [Pero] hindi pa final yung love team, e. Gusto ko sana pag final at saka ko na sasabihin."

He also disclosed that an indie film is in the works.

“Sana, sana. Pero hindi ko sure kung tuloy pa yung indie ko pero sana matuloy.”

Does he set his career goals with talent manager Arnold Vegafria?

“Usually pag makikipag-usap ako sa manager ko, ito yung goal ko, parang nagmi-meet halfway.

“Yung gusto ng manager ko, siyempre, business pa rin 'yan e. Yung gusto niya, susundin ko.”



MARTIN’S JOURNEY IN SHOWBIZ. And how time flies!

He was 15 years old when he entered showbiz.

As a teen star, he starred in the defunct youth-oriented show Star Magic presents Abt Ur Luv and Ur Lyf 2, and was given support roles in teleseryes like SineSerye presents Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos, Iisa Pa Lamang, Magkano ang Iyong Dangal, and Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin.

In 2012, he was given his biggest break in the afternoon teleserye Precious Hearts Romances presents Pintada, where he played Denise Laurel’s leading man.

And then mid-last year, he transferred to GMA.

He is now 22 years old.

What is his fondest memory so far in show business?

“Alam mo yung feeling na noon, nanuonood ka lang sa TV? 'Tapos ngayon, napapanood mo na yung sarili mo sa TV.

“Although noon ha, hindi ko talaga drineam na maging artista.”

Joining show business, he said, is an accident. His original plan was to be a doctor. In fact, he was top two in his class.

“Aksidente lang ‘yon, e. Kasi dati, nagko-commercial ako, commercial model ako, yun madali lang, smile-smile lang.

“'Tapos, hanggang sa na-discover ako noong last day of class ko sa Lourdes [School of Quezon City].

“Ta’s pina-try ako, akala ko kasi commercial ‘yong papasukin ko. Biglang pina-workshop ako.

“All of a sudden, binigyan ako ng show, 'tapos napunta na ako doon, hanggang sa minahal ko na rin siya.”

RUMORS. Of course, he did not deny that rumors being spread about him is a downside of being in show business. But he has learned to take it positively.

“Siguro ‘yong mga tsismis, na kunyari, hindi totoo.

“Tapos siyempre maraming maaapektuhan, yung family mo 'di ba?

“Pero parang sa ‘kin kasi, ang ano sa ‘kin noon, basta may tsismis, okay [at least], napag-uusapan din naman [ako].

“Naka-ka-bother lang na iisipin ng ibang tao ‘yong mga tungkol sa’yo pero hindi naman totoo.

“Naka-ka-bother lang pero not to the point na talagang pagbibigyan mo ng panahon na matagal.”

WISH LIST. He also shared that his dream leading ladies in GMA are Lovi Poe because “nagagalingan ako umarte”, and Kylie Padilla and Heart Evangelista, “kung sa ganda ganda.”

Does he still have a dream character to portray in mind?

“Ako talaga basta challenging,

“Ang dami ko nang nagawa na sobrang kakaibang roles rin. Basta bago.”

Is he the type who sets his goals and put deadlines to them?

"Ah ganun ako mag-isip. Pero ako kasi, gusto ko panalo.

"Pag may goal ako talaga, usually, tri-nain ako na bata pa lang ako, kaya ko mag-top one.

"Parang nasanay ako sa ganoong mindset na nag-start ako mag-artista.

"Kung pinasok ko ‘to, gagalingan ko na. Hanggang sa parang hindi ko ma-imagine na pumasok ako, kung iisipin ko yun ha, medyo malayo-layo na rin pala.

"So parang ako, happy ako.

"Parang tinatanong mo kung medyo mabagal yung ano ngayon e pero okay lang kasi marami naman akong nilo-look forward, yun yung mas mahalaga sa 'kin. kasi, yung future, may mga naka-plano."

And nope, he's not actually thinking of any fallback option in case things do not work well in showbiz.

With his talent and determination, "Walang 'di kakayanin sa industriyang ito."
