Martin Del Rosario Plays A Bad Guy Role As The Rapist Of Yasmien Kurdi Who Gives Her H.I.V. In GMA-7's New Afternoon Drama, 'Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka'

MARTIN DEL ROSARIO plays a villain role in the new GMA afternoon soap, “Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka”, that will replace “Haplos” starting February 26. He plays Lawrence, the college friend of Yasmien Kurdi as Thea who has a secret admiration for her. He drugs her then rapes her, without knowing that he is afflicted with HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) and he unknowingly transfers the disease to her. When Yasmien confronts him about this later, he is in denial and won’t admit he’s the culprit in giving her the deadly virus.

“Usually, mabait ang roles ko so very challenging for me to play this kind of bad guy role,” says Martin. “Later, the disease will affect me physically and, unlike Thea na nilalabanan yung sakit, ako, I will deteriorate physically so nagpapapayat talaga ako parang maging credible sa role ko.”

Martin is really so busy these days as he’s doing two other regular shows. For Cignal TV, he is doing the role of Barbs in “Born Beautiful”, for which he has to shave all the hair on his body to be credible in his role as a transgender. He’s also in the environmental series produced by a Japanese company, “Unbroken Hearts”, with Janine Gutierrez, shot on the beaches of Zambales.
