Coco Martin Now A Certified Godfather To New Actresses Who He Helps To Achieve Stardom

NO DOUBT Coco Martin is now the only top actor who helps boost the career of actresses who gain full stardom after appearing as his leading ladies. No doubt that after being paired with him and being rumored to be his girlfriend, the stock of Julia Montes zoomed up and she starred in her own hit soap, “Doble Kara”. The same for Maja Salvador, after whose appearance in “Ang Probinsyano” was given the afternoon soap “Wildflower”, now a certified hit in the ratings.

Ditto for Bela Padilla after her stint in “Ang Probinsyano”, she starred in “My Dear Heart” then became a producer-writer-actress in the hit flick, “Camp Sawi”, even if her solo romcom “Luck at First Sight” wasn’t that successful at the tills. Now comes Yassi Pressman, whose appearance in “Ang Probinsyano” as Coco’s wife definitely boosted her stock. She now has many endorsements and is now even starring in her solo movie, “Ang Pambansang Third Wheel”.

For his Metro-Manila Filmfest entry, Coco has chosen an entirely new leading lady, reigning Bb. Pilipinas International Mariel de Leon. Mariel seems an inch or so taller than him but, never mind, since she is a bonafide showbiz royalty being the daughter of respected stars Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong. We have no doubt that Coco will definitely be a big help in jumpstarting Mariel de Leon’s career in local show business.
