RICHARD GUTIERREZ – Kapamilya actor shares how he was impressed at the directing skills of Coco Martin on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
Actor Richard Gutierrez is one of the special guests on the long-running Dreamscape series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. The Ang Probinsyano team is currently locked-in for taping.
Richard Gutierrez said he is thankful to finally join the show. This after first discussing his possible appearance and participation in the show with the lead star and director Coco Martin during the ABS-CBN Ball last year.
“I’m very thankful na napasok ako dito sa FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Si Coco nga nag-usap na kami niyan before and sabi nga niya na gusto niya ako makatrabaho. Sabi ko ganun din ako, gusto ko siya makatrabaho. So sabi niya, ;Titingin tayo ng opportunity. Gusto sana kita i-guest sa Ang Probinsyano.’ Sabi ko, ‘Game, any time! Just let me know kung kalian,’ Richard said in an online conference on August 3.
He shared that on her first day on set after the taping continued last month during GCQ, Coco immediately made an effort for him to feel better. Richard said, Coco immediately talks to him and gives directions for his character.
“Kinausap ako kaagad ni Coco pagdating sa set. Nag-usap kaming dalawa and then parang nilatag lang niya sa akin yung character ko, yung magiging kuwento, yung tinakbo, yung part tapos kung saan pupunta. Kumbaga kinausap niya ako in a way na parang pina-relax niya ako na ‘Welcome ka dito sa grupo namin.”
The 36-year-old actor played the role of Angelito in the top-rated action drama series also admired Coco for being a good director. Coco’s attention to detail as a director is impressive, according to Richard.
“Nung first day namin, dun pa lang in-establish na niya yung magiging parang rapport namin kasi as a director, ramdam ko talaga na pinapaganda niya yung mga eksena. Yung mga eksena ko nararamdaman ko na inaalagaan niya. Kumbaga ang daming anggulo, ang daming shots, tapos ayaw niya ng mga eksena na parang puwede na.”
The new actor of Ang Probinsyano admitted that he did not join last year’s series due to conflict in scheduling. Richard also added how good the working style is in their set.
He was also amazed when Coco goes on lead star mode. According to him, Coco is equally impressive. He narrates how impressive Coco is when switching roles, from director to lead actor.
“As an actor naman, ang galing din Coco kasi imagine switching from director to actor, that’s not easy di ba. I guess nakasanayan na niya and I think yung character niya as Cardo humang hulma na kumbaga alam na alam na niya. So ang bilis na niyang nakakapag-switch from director to actor.”
