At the set of the first shooting day of his latest movie, You Light Up My Life, an exuberant Coco Martin couldn't help but express how impressed he was with his leading lady, Angeline Quinto.
According to the actor, even though it's her first movie, she is already showing a lot of potential.
"Feelingko nga niloloko niya ako e, he shared. Sabi niya sa akin hindi siya marunong umarte pero sa workshop tsaka dito sa shooting namin ngayon sabi ko meron, e. Sabi ko sa kanya, 'Pinasasakay mo lang kami, e! Nagpapa-humble ka lang na 'di ka marunong umarte.
In You Light Up My Life, Coco portrays a moody photographer who falls in love with Angeline. Angeline, on the other hand, plays a bubbly tourist guide. The contrast in their personalities will result in a love-hate relationship.
Coco is full of praises for the first grand winner of Star Power. He is also aware that Angeline has more than a little crush on the actor. "Oo nga. Hahaha! Hindi ko iniisip, e, he divulged. Siyempre nakakatuwa para hangaan ka ng isang tao, pero mas dapat intindihin yung trabaho. Nakakatuwa kasi nakita ko yung dedikasyon niya at ipinapakita niya kung sino talaga siya. Napakasimple niya at napakabait na tao, Coco added.
As early as now the Coco-Angeline tandem is showing a lot of promise. In fact, fan groups who call themselves Coline and Cocogine are mushrooming all over the internet. Coco believes that he and Angeline's similar backgrounds contribute largely to their onscreen chemistry.
Siguro kasi nakita nila na pareho kaming masa, malapit sa tao, pareho kami ng pinanggalingan. Kapag pinanonood ko siya, sabi ko parang nakikita ko yung sarili ko sa kanya. Excited ako sa team-up namin tsaka matagal ko ng gusto makagawa ng love story so eto na yun."
