Marco Gumabao Done With Teeny Bopper Roles, Ready For More Mature, Sexier Parts Like In 'Para Sa Broken Hearted'

MARCO GUMABAO is happy that even if he left Star Magic and is now managed by Viva Artists, he continues to do projects as a Kapamilya. He has started taping for the new afternoon soap, “Los Bastardos”, where he’ll play one of the sons of Ronaldo Valdez. Meantime, after doing a sexy guest role as the man who comes between Cristine Reyes and Natalie Hart in ‘Abay Babes’, he now plays a lead role in his new movie, ‘Para sa Hopeless Romantic’.

“I’m really thankful with the projects I’m getting now,” he says. “I didn’t burn my bridges naman with ABS-CBN when I left Star Magic kaya I can still get to work with the Kapamilya network. Nagpaalam naman ako nang maayos so no hard feelings for us.”

He’s now obviously ready to go sexy, like in “Abay Babes” where he donned a revealing swimsuit. “Okay lang naman. I’m now 24 years old, so hindi na puedeng puro teeny bopper roles ang gawin ko like before. Dapat lang mag-level up to do more mature roles. Also, pinaghirapan ko naman itong katawan ko through work out and diet. Ganun din dito sa ‘Los Bastardos’, marami kaming shirtless scenes ng mga kasama ko. Pampainit sa hapon para sa viewers.”

In “Para sa Hopeless Romantic”, which opens in cinemas this Wednesday, he is paired with Shy Carlos. “I play RJ and Shy is Jackie. She’s the one na medyo aggressive pero nang maging kami, I found out na very dominant ang personality niya, so nasasakal ako and I want to be out of our relationship. Maraming matutuhan ang viewers dito, lalo na ang millennials, kasi it shares a lot of insights about the ins and outs of relationships. Madaling ma-in love pero mahirap maging broken hearted.”
