Actor Coco Martin laughed off rumors that he has supposedly been going out on dates with his “Ikaw Lamang” co-star KC Concepcion.
In an interview with “TV Patrol,” Martin stressed that he is just friends with his TV series co-star, whom he finds humble and easy to like.
He added, “Sana magkaroon ng time lumabas, pero sa ngayon sabi ko nga masarap siyang katrabaho.”
Asked if there’s any possibility that his relationship with Concepcion could go beyond friendship, Martin answered, “Hindi ko pa alam eh, siguro masyado pang maaga para magsalita about diyan.”
On being paired with her, Martin revealed, “Nung una may takot ako kasi KC Concepcion ’yan eh tapos ’di ko in-expect na ganun pala siya… Napakabait pala niyang tao.”
Still, the 32-year-old actor said that he cannot commit to a relationship for now due to his hectic work schedule.
“Masaya kahit single kasi medyo busy din naman ako at gumagawa pa ako ng direksyon para sa sarili ko,” he said.
For her part, the 29-year-old actress has only good words about Martin.
Aside from describing him as “very gentleman,” Concepcion added that he is, “sobrang maalaga. As in to the point na tuwing tatayo ako, tuwing uupo ako, nakaalalay siya. Hindi ko alam kung may radar siya or something…”
Movie with Nora
For the first time, Martin has worked with Superstar Nora Aunor in the yet-to-be-released film “Padre de Familia.”
“Napaka-importante sa akin ng proyekto na ito, kasi siyempre Ms. Nora Aunor ito,” he said.
“Padre de Familia,” Aunor’s first cinematic collaboration with director Adolf Alix, Jr., is a domestic drama that also features Joel Torre, Rosanna Roces, Anita Linda, Joem Bascon, Baron Geisler, Manuel Chua and Miles Ocampo.
