The reason behind the name is that whenever he left home with a toothbrush, it was because he planned on sleeping over at a friend’s house. This is only one of the unexpected fun facts about Empoy Marquez that we recently discovered when he took on the Yes or No Challenge!
Despite being part of the entertainment industry, Empoy does not watch a lot of movies. So, it is rare for him to cry because of one. Although, the 2017 hit “Kita Kita” did manage to make him feel emotional. When they were shooting the romantic comedy in Japan, he revealed that they were mostly just having fun. It was only after the movie was released that he realized what the final product would like. “Doon ko napagtanto na ang ganda pala nung ginawa naming palabas,” he explained. Obviously, viewers thought the same thing. So, in the end, the overwhelmingly positive reaction from the audience made the comedian teary-eyed.
Indeed, this memorable project has proven Empoy’s worth as an actor. But what fans might not know is that he usually only needs one take when shooting a scene.

On a serious note, he advised the newbies of show business to trust that God has a purpose and that they should use their influence for good.
