Mark Neumann Glad To Be Killed The Pinoy Baker King Now That He'S Hit TV5 Soap Is Extended Until September

MARK NEUMANN is so happy that TV5 extended “Baker King” until September. “I’ve learned to love my role as Takgu San Miguel, the love child of Raymond Bagatsing as Johnny Lee, the president of Gustavo Bread Factory,” he says. “Feeling ko, alter ego ko na siya at baka magkaroon ako ng separation anxiety from him kapag natapos na ang show. In some ways, I can relate to him, I was able to get into this emotions. We’re both alike kasi pareho kami we lost our mom at a young age. Pareho rin kami in pagiging makulit. But in some matters, we can also be very laid back. Takgu is now on his way to being the most sought after baker in town. At sana ako rin, maging sought after actor in my career. Ha ha ha!”

But no doubt he has achieved success with some fans calling him the Pinoy Baker King. “I really get high when people call me Takgu in public. Before kasi, when I was doing Wattpad Presents, teenage girls lang ang nakakapansin sa akin. But now, every one notices me as Takgu, even tricycle drivers and jeepney drivers, which means people are really watching our show.”

Mark is turning 21 on August 23. What is his birthday wish? “Marami. Sana, mabigyan ako uli ng another TV series. Sana, makagawa naman ako ng movie. I want to be known as a drama-action star. I also plan to visit Japan, my gift to myself na bakasyon doon. Lahat yan, puro pangarap as of now. Libre namang mangarap, di ba? Pero sana, magkatotoo.”
