Arjo Atayde’s outstanding performance on “MMK” Saturday has again proven his impeccable acting skills, after the episode earned excellent reviews.
Atayde, who used to portray a tough villain on “Ang Probinsyano,” played renowned Pinoy fashion designer Rocky Gathercole. Many netizens gave Atayde a thumbs up; some even called him the best actor of his generation.
While a big potential was seen in Atayde early in his career, his mother, Sylvia Sanchez, revealed that the main secret to her son’s good acting is faithful studying.
“Honestly noong umpisa, noong nakita ko siyang nag-start, alam kong mayroon siyang ibubuga kasi nakikita ko eh. Pero hindi ko alam na ganito siya kalalim,” Sanchez said.
According to “The Greatest Love” star, the night before the taping began, Arjo turned off his phone, and spent the wee hours reviewing movies and other materials that are helpful for his role.
“Nagre-research siya. Nag-aaral. Nanonood ng movies,” Sanchez quipped.
Sanchez also acknowledges the possibility that her son might have inherited her acting prowess. Her daughter, Ria, has also entered showbiz. (MNS)
