Rocco Nacino Wants To Meet Senator Grace PoeRocco Nacino wants to meet Senator Grace Poe-Llamanzares, his girlfriend Lovi Poe's half-sister. It will be an honor for him to meet the senator.
Lovi and Grace are daughters of the late King of Philippine Movies Fernando Poe Jr.--Lovi with Rowena Moran and Grace with Susan Roces.
Lovi said she wants to introduce Rocco and her sister to one another. She just wants the occasion to be special and the timing proper. Lovi and Senator Grace recently had a televised interview on Startalk.
As for the senator, she revealed not having met Rocco yet, although she saw him on TV and she thinks he looks nice. Rocco said he's ready to meet the senator anytime and anywhere.
The actor denied that Rowena doesn't like him for her daughter. He recently spent time with her in a family gathering. If she doesn't like him, Rocco will surely feel it.
He's very sensitive to things like that. Rocco added that these are just rumors.
He won't be able to go to Japan with Lovi and Rowena because he's taping heavy scenes for "Hiram Na Alaala." Rocco said Lovi wants to take a break because she has been very busy with work. She did "Shake, Rattle & Roll XV" and a soap opera for Cinema One Original.
He and Lovi might go to Japan in April for the Cherry Blossoms festival. In fact, Rocco's family may come with them too.
Meanwhile, this is the first time Rocco sported a mustache and beard. He's doing this for her role as Otep in "Hiram Na Alaala." It's important for him to change his looks for the series, so he can feel his role better.
In the teleserye, Otep has long been away from his girlfriend, Andeng (Kris Bernal), who's falling in love with Ivan (Dennis Trillo). His role Otep is undergoing a lot of challenges. He's suffering from shell shock or combat stress reaction, as well as PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Otep is a former soldier in the series. He has been affected physically, psychologically and also emotionally because of what happened with him and Andeng.
Otep gets angry easily and for no apparent reason. He also became confrontational. He only changes when it comes to Andeng. He just cannot accept that there's a new man in Andeng's life.
Rocco wants to be ready for the heavier scenes in his character. Their director, Dominic Zapanta, demands the best from them. For him, though, it's physically and mentally draining.
He also finds it hard to disconnect from his character because he can feel Otep. He simply thinks happy thoughts, so that he can break away from Otep.
What Rocco does is to call Lovi, so he can hear her voice. Lovi brings him back to reality. "Marinig ko lang ang boses niya, okey na ang lahat."
Lovi gets concerned, at times, about how intense his character is. She also knows how dedicated he is in his work. Lovi shows support for him through her social media accounts.
