Rocco Nacino Reveals His Near Death Experience In Arnold Clavio's Show, 'Alisto'

ROCCO NACINO is the special guest in Arnold Clavio’s show, “Alisto!”, a show that gives tips on what’s to be done when you are faced with an extremely dangerous situation, this coming Monday. He will share his experience when he nearly drowned while shooting the filmfest entry “Pedro Calungsod”, where he played the title role.

The second Filipino saint St. Pedro Calungsod was stabbed by hostile natives repeatedly then thrown into the sea in Guam in 1672. And when Rocco re-created this particular scene for the camera, he almost drowned because a heavy stone was tied onto him to make sure the saint’s dead body won’t come up again into the surface.

Rocco shares some details of the harrowing incident. He recalls that after the take, he had difficulty unfastening the heavy rock tied up to him and things got worse when a ten-foot wave came along to further drag him down. What should be done when you are faced with such an emergency? Find out when you watch “Alisto!” with Arnold Clavio this Monday, 4:35PM, on GMA7.

Meantime, after “Hiram na Alaala”, Rocco has just finished a new movie, “Balut Country”, which is an entry in the SinagMaynila Filmfest spearheaded by Solar Entertainment and Director Dante Mendoza that starts showing next week. "Balut Country" is written and directed by Paul Sta. Ana, who earlier helmed “Oros” that gave Kristoffer Martin a couple of acting awards.
