MARTIN DEL ROSARIO is currently better known for his pivotal villain role as Zardoz in “Voltes V Legacy”. 

And now, he gets to play another important character on the big screen in “The Cheating Game”.   

This is the first offering of GMA Pictures after “Family History” with Michael V. Nessa Valdellon, Senior VP of GMA Pictures, says they’re very proud of the movie. 

“It’s not the usual romcom as it becomes something completely unexpected towards the middle.” she says. 

“Medyo iba siya kasi it turns out to be something else and we’re sure viewers will like it. Both Rayver and Julie shine here in their respective roles.

"Lalo si Julie, maraming gugulatin dahil ang galing-galing niya rito. Also a stand out is Martin del Rosario as Brian, Julie’s first boyfriend.”

Martin says he is very happy to be part of the movie as it tackles something very important about relationships and people can relate with easily.

“The title is ‘The Cheating Game’, but it’s not only about cheating but also lying,” he adds. 

“For me, cheating and lying are mortal sins in any relationship. I mean, bakit mo itatago sa akin ang isang bagay if you really love me?

"How can we have peace in our relationship if you’re hiding something from me? For me, kapag ganoon, tapos na tayo.”

How does he feel when viewers hate him as Zardoz? 

“Okay lang, that’s to be expected as Zardoz wants to invade planet Earth. Pero may redemption naman later sa character niya. 

"As Brian, maiinis din sa akin ang viewers dito sa movie kasi nga, he is a cheater. He cheated on Julie Anne San Jose in the story.”

He’s glad that his role as Brian was well defined in the script. 

“Yes, very clear ang pagkakasulat sa character ko. He is carefree, very immature in the way he handles his problems. Pero dahil sa cheating niya, sasabog sa mukha niya ang lahat kasi gusto niyang magmahal ng sabay-sabay.”

How is it working with Julie Anne, Rayver Cruz and their director, Rod Marmol? 

“Both Julie and Rayver, magaan katrabaho, even our other co-stars. Lahat ng nasa cast, puro magagaling na artista and si Direk Rod, sobrang chill lang, walang stress. 

"Siya mismo ang sumulat sa script so he knows how to guide us para makuha mo nang tama ang character na ginagampanan mo. We’re all proud of our movie na showing na sa mga sinehan on July 26.”
