FPJ’s Batang Quiapo leading actor and director Coco Martin believed that he was being guided by the late action star Fernando Poe Jr.
In an interview, Coco said that he also couldn’t explain why new ideas kept coming to his mind that helped him to extend Batang Quiapo.
Coco admitted that he had no experience in creating programs or writing stories, but he still successfully did his tasks.
“Honestly, wala akong alam sa paggawa ng mga teleserye, pagsusulat… hindi ko rin alam kung paano nangyayari lahat. Kapag nasa creative (team) ako, honestly sinasabi ko pagod na pagod na ‘ko… hindi ko alam kung kaya ko pa, pero ‘pag naron na ‘ko, nagsisimula na ‘kong magsalita, hindi ko alam kung saan nanggagaling yung ideas, yung mga sinasabi ko, yung mga kuwentong ikinukuwento namin, hindi ko alam…” said Coco.
He believed that FPJ and God were giving him ideas to continue his craft.
“Guidance ni God, and then sabi ko siguro… naniniwala ako na nariyan si FPJ para i-guide ako talaga…” said the actor.
It can be recalled that Coco was dubbed as the next FPJ as he was leading the projects made by the King of Filipino Movies and turned it into a series.
