Rocco Nacino Foregoes Attending Cosmo Bash 2013Kapuso actor Rocco Nacino explains why he had to forego walking on the runway of Cosmo Bash 2013 this September 24. Since he is currently taping for "Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir," Nacino said he doesn't want to do sexy roles and pictorials for the meantime.
It can be noticed that Nacino is not in the list of the celebrities and models who will walk the runway in this year's Cosmo Bash 2013. He didn't even participate in the Cosmo Men photo shoot for this year's Cosmo bachelors.
"Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir" is an official entry to the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival in December. It is a biopic of the life of the modern-day Filipino saint. He was canonized just this year.
Nacino said he doesn't want the people to be confused with the roles he will be playing. So until the biopic is shown in December, he will defer doing sexy roles and pictorials. "I want to stay true sa character ko as Pedro Calungsod. Bilang respeto na rin sa taong ginagampanan ko."
There are sacrifices he has to make for the film, the actor said. He added that his fans will understand he has to put the movie as priority.
Hopefully, they will just support his movie come December. It is better if they will just watch his movie, he added. Besides, his fans will still be able to watch him in "Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas" with Lovi Poe.
Meanwhile, Nacino is very happy with the success and high ratings of "Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas." He said this is the first time in three years that he is able to star again in a primetime series. His last primetime teleserye was "Time Of My Life" in 2010.
After that, he only did afternoon series for the next three years.
Nacino is equally happy that people are still supporting his loveteam with Poe. He then invited their fans to watch their GMA News Original TV Series "Titser."
He is thankful to GMA that he was tagged as one of the "Kapuso Prime Leading Men." When he was given that title, he wasn't feeling very well because of the heavy schedule of that day. It enabled him to realize that there are still some things that can make him feel okay without any effort at all.
The actor thanked GMA for giving him that kind of opportunity.
For now, Nacino will also be filming for "Bayan Ko 2." They have received a lot of good feedback for the first series of "Bayan Ko," so they decided to make another one.
