Kapamilya actor Coco Martin revealed why he wanted veteran actress Tessie Tomas to be part of his series Batang Quiapo.

The Kapamilya primetime series is now in its second season. In a previous statement, Coco shared that he is aware of the viewers’ comments about the plot of the story following Mokang’s death, the character played by Lovi Poe.

The actor-director assured the fans that they will show the never-before-seen scenes and that the series will be more explosive.

In a recent report by ABS-CBN entertainment reporter MJ Felipe, Coco Martin talked about the cast members of Batang Quiapo. He is known for letting newbie artists and returning actors and actresses be part of his series. This happened in his previous series Ang Probinsyano also.

Coco said that it has been his goal to show newbies and returning artists to showcase their talent so that producers would see them and they would eventually get more projects.

One of the recent additions to his series is Tessie Tomas. Coco said that the veteran actress was his personal choice to be included in the series. He said that he wanted someone who could be the opposite of Charo Santos’s character.

Coco remembered the performance of Tessie in the series Dirty Linen and he thought that she would be perfect for this role.

The actor-director is reunited with veteran actor Jaime Fabregas in the second season of the Kapamilya primetime series. They worked together in Ang Probinsyano also in which Jaime played the character of Coco’s grandfather.

Coco said that he wanted to showcase the other side of Jaime and so he let him play a villain role in Batang Quiapo. He also shared that if given a chance, he wants to work with veteran actresses Chanda Romero, Gina Alajar, and Rio Locsin.
