Marky Cielo can be considered as one of the young celebrities who has been getting projects continuously.
Ever since he won the titles Ultimate Male Survivor and Sole Survivor in the third batch of StarStruck in 2006, Marky has been regularly seen on television—in teledramas and variety shows. He also top-billed Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan and Sine Novela: Kaputol ng Isang Awit only more than year after he won the talent show.
Now he is part of one the most expensive project of GMA-7, so far, Codename: Asero.
People are now questioning his easy access to stardom. Some are asking, "Is Marky really one of the favorites of GMA Network?"
"Hindi naman, ito nga [Codename: Asero] unplanned, e. Mayroon namang mahaba-habang panahon na wala akong ginagawa," Marky answered humbly.
He added, "Sa tingin ko lang, swerte ko lang talaga, e. I mean, hindi ko naman masasabi na malakas ako sa kanila [GMA Network]. Suwerte ko lang po talaga."
The guy from the Mountain Province also dismissed rumors that he was included in GMA-7's public affairs program called Kalam, which was shown last Sunday, July 6, because of his strong connection to the network.
He explained, "Ayun, suwerte ko lang na ang topic [about] rice. Siyempre 'yong rice din, mayroong mga native rice din. Sa mga roots, [binase] nila sa mga areas na related 'yong rice problems, kung paano masosolusyunan. So, kami na may mga ugat doon [ang napili], like Jay [Taruc], Nueva Ecija po siya. Ako po 'yong from Mountain Province, sa Cordillera, na nag-represent po doon."
Marky believes he is just lucky right now. So, he takes all the opportunities he gets.
"Hindi ko alam kung hanggang kailan ang suwerte kong ito, 'yon lang, tanggap lang muna. So kung ano man 'yong sinasabing malakas diyan, wala akong oras para i-entertain 'yon. Habang meron ako, tatanggapin ko," said Marky.
The young actor did not forget to give his gratitude to his talent manager, Rommel Gacho, for the project he's been receiving.
He said, "Salamat kay Tatay [Rommel Gacho], hindi niya kami pinapabayaan. Siguro 'yon ang influence na hinahanap ninyo. Like, kaming mga anak niya, hindi naman niya kami pinapabayaan. Kung wala kaming ginagawa, may mga guestings. 'Yon lang ang maiisip ko, inalagaan niya kami, tinuruan niya kaming lahat."
