MANILA – Coco Martin’s portrayal of Paloma on ABS-CBN’s drama series Ang Probinsiyano has been a big hit.

In the past few weeks, Paloma became a major reason for the show to gain more positive reviews and higher ratings based from Kantar Media’s data. While fans fondly watch the TV drama, many has noticed the undeniable resemblance of Paloma with “Everything About Her” star Angel Locsin.

In an ABS-CBN article, Locsin said she has seen the photos of Martin transformed as Paloma. She said many told her they look alike. But she was quick to say, “Pero mas maganda siya sa akin.” [But she’s more beautiful than me.]

Locsin admitted she looks forward to working with Martin for her next project.

“Gusto ko makatrabaho si Coco. Hindi lang po talaga magkatagpo-tagpo ang schedule namin kasi ang super busy ni Coco. Siya po ‘yung next na sana maging ka-partner ko po,” she said. [I want to work with Coco. We just need to arrange our schedule since he is very busy. I hope he will be my next partner.]

Meanwhile, Martin revealed he was the one who suggested the storyline of Paloma to the production unit, Dreamscape Entertainment, according to Arvin Mendoza’s article for Inquirer.

“Para sa akin dream role ‘yan eh. ‘Yun ‘yung mga bagay na hindi mo lagi magagawa bawat proyekto na ihahain sa ‘yo,” he said. [That is my dream role. Those are the kinds of project that do not come often.]

He added he realized how hard it is to play a woman. He said he studied and processed how a woman behaves to deliver a convincing act.

In a video posted by ABS-CBN, other Kapamilya stars like Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla, Julia Montes, Kim Chui and Anne Curtis were all praises to Martin’s transformation as the hottest girl on prime time.
