Five years is more than enough to build a happy family on the set of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. The ensemble cast and production team were able to hoard memories and stories – from surpassing major roadblocks and death-defying stunts to the happy times – worth a second look.
The show’s torchbearer, Coco Martin, smiles while reminiscing about all they’ve been through mounting an action-drama series. His message resonates with humility and gratitude as he credits his co-stars, production staff, and the loyal Kapamilya viewers.
Misunderstandings happen just as in an ordinary family. But at the end of the day, respect, love, and the commitment to the Filipino audiences keep them together. “Maraming hindi pagkakasunduan pero sa kabila po noon, nananatili pa rin ang magandang pagsasamahan bilang pamilya. Napatatag na po kami ng haba ng panahon,” said Coco.
The King of Philippine Television pays homage to Susan Roces – the pillar of their extended family. “Siya po ang aming tumatayong ina, lola, ang puso ng buong Probinsyano,” Coco states. He is thankful for the veteran actress’ loyalty, for not leaving the show despite the uncertain times. Susan is currently working from home to sustain the role of her well-loved character, Lola Flora.
The country’s longest-running action-drama series stood the test of time, thanks to the Kapamilya viewers that showed overwhelming devotion. Coco thanks the Filipino families for welcoming them into their homes. “Napakalaki po ng utang na loob namin sa inyo dahil kayo po ang nagpapalakas ng loob po namin para ipagpatuloy pa rin po namin ang aming trabaho,” he says.
Coco vows, “Hindi po kami susuko. Tuloy ang laban. Kung ito po ang maisusukli po namin para sa inyo, na mabigyan kayo ng magandang palabas at makapagbigay kami ng inspirasyon sa inyo, ibibigay po namin sa inyo ‘to at sisiguraduhin po namin na hindi namin kayo bibiguin.”
The unwavering passion and commitment to the Filipino audience make FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano immortal. Cardo’s story is far from over. Tuloy ang Laban!
