Kapamilya actress Shaina Magdayao revealed on March 28 that Coco Martin’s directing style was inspired by Brillante Mendoza.
At the premiere night of ‘Apag,’ which LionhearTV covered, Magdayao highlighted how Martin taught her about scriptless acting while working in FPJ’s ‘Ang Probinsyano’.
The actress revealed, “Ngayon po, alam ko na kung saan nakuha ni Coco ang style kung kanino po siya nag-mana. Kay Direk Brillante po talaga. Buti na lang na-train ako ni Coco sa Ang Probinsyano kung hindi baka nagka-utal-utal po ako pagdating sa set ni Direk Brillante. But siyempre grabe po ang suporta nila sa akin. At tiwala nila sa akin.”
Magdayao expressed gratitude for landing her role in ‘Apag’ and the chance to work with Martin and Mendoza.
She expressed her gratitude to Director Brillante Mendoza and to some of the country’s most respected actors and actresses, particularly Coco Martin, who paved the way for her to be a part of this project.
Magdayao stars in the Brillante Mendoza film ‘Apag’ with Coco Martin.
The film also features Gladys Reyes, Jaclyn Jose, Julio Diaz, Carlos Canlas, Lito Lapid, Mark Lapid, Gina Pareño, and many more.
Under the direction of Brillante Mendoza, ‘Apag’ opens in cinemas on April 8 during the Metro Manila Summer Film Festival.
