Marvin Agustin won't leave acting even if he owns 20 Restos

MARVIN AGUSTIN plays a kind pastor who later on kills his wife, Carmina Villaroel, in GMA Films’ scary suspense-thriller, “The Road”. “First time ko to do a role like this,” he says. “Mabait akong husband but something went wrong in our family kaya naging killer ako. I’ve won best actor before in ‘Kutob’ as a psychotic killer, pero ibang klase itong ‘The Road’. I salute our director, Yam Laranas, for his fine handling of the material. He’s very articulate in explaining he wants from you in every scene.”

He didn’t renew his contract with GMA Artist Center. After doing “Iglot”, is he really leaving GMA-7? “Hindi naman. Happy ako rito. Heto nga may bago pa kong movie. But I want to open other doors for me, kahit sa 7, 5 or 2. Ang importante, yung project. Basta sure na magugustuhan ng tao, doon ako.”

Why is he still acting when he’s already a successful entrepreneur owning more than 20 restos all over? “Enjoy ako with both acting and my businesses. You just don’t work naman for the money. Dapat, fulfilled ka sa ginagawa mo. I’m so fulfilled with acting so I’ll act forever.”
