He won numerous awards for portraying edgy roles in TV dramas like “Destiny Rose” and “My Special Tatay,” and this time around, Kapuso actor Ken Chan goes heavy drama on the big screen with “Papa Mascot.”
“Papa Mascot” tells the story of a man who became a parent to the child he kidnapped. Now that the child is living with her real parents, the man dons mascot costumes for “his” child’s birthday party every year in order to spend time with her.
Louie Ignacio, the director of the film, revealed that this movie is intended for Ken and he has all-praises to the actor’s dedication in his craft. He even predicted that Ken could bag his first international acting award for his debut feature as lead actor.
Hearing high words from his director, Ken takes it as a double-edged sword.
“Nakakakilig. But there’s pressure at the same time. In this industry, or any field for that matter, crab mentality can’t be avoided. So it feels good to have people who encourage you and lift up your spirits. They inspire me to do my job right and improve my craft,” he said.
“Papa Mascot” also stars Miles Ocampo, Gabby Eigenmann, Liza Diño, and Erin Rose Espiritu. Produced by Wide International, the film is now showing in more than 100 cinemas nationwide.
