When I found out that Martin del Rosario was going to attend the Kulintangtang Festival in one of the municipalities of South Cotabato, I immediately contacted ALV Talent Agency (who now handles Martin’s career) and requested from them a one on one exclusive interview with Martin.
I travelled for more than an hour, from one city to another just to have this sit-down video interview. It’s way long over-due. I’ve been wanting to have this opportunity ever since I attended the gala screening of his first movie with Cinema One Originals ‘Dagim’ where he won two acting awards; Breakthrough Perfomance by an Actor at the 8th Golden Screen Awards and New Movie Actor of the Year at the 27th PMPC Star Awards for Movies.
Martin Miguel, 21, is one of the most underrated stars of ABS-CBN. Though he has proven his brilliance and passion in acting, he is still struggling with the needed spotlight and project. Despite that, he never gave a half-hearted portrayal. With very expressive eyes, he delivered every performance in the past with enough grit and strength. He had a total of 20 shows in ABS-CBN with remarkable performances on ‘Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin’ with Coco Martin, ‘Pintada’ with Denise Laurel and the recent ‘Juan dela Cruz’ with Shaina Magdayao. He is also one of the young celebrities with the most ‘Maalala Mo Kaya’ episode. Martin also got a nomination from FAMAS for his performance on ‘Amorosa’ and good reviews in his 2 most recent movies, “The Healing’ and ‘Bride for Rent’.
