Amidst the relentlessly dramatic and intense narrative of Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin, Marissa’s (Jodi Sta. Maria) trustworthy right-hand Blue (Nico Antonio) wasn’t only one of the people who she depended on the most, but also one of those who provided comic relief through his unmistakable sense of humor and funny antics.
As avid viewers probably wondered how his unbreakable connection and faithfulness to Marissa began, it was revealed that their paths first crossed when she saved him from being murdered by Caesar (Simon Ibarra) after he was caught stealing money.
Apart from serving as his shield when Caesar almost shot him and stopping him and his henchmen from torturing him, Marissa was also compelled to offer her whole life to the organization and their leader Madam Adelina (Carla Guevarra) in exchange of sparing him from death.
Marissa’s courageous act of kindness made him feel indebted to her, so he vowed to also put himself on the line for her since then. Aside from being his and his family’s bodyguard, he also became his ever-reliable friend and the person he could depend on the most. And in the March 15 episode, Blue had faced his untimely, tragic death.
While his character had the bravery, loyalty, versatility, and reliability that every bodyguard should possess, Nico actually has a finely chiseled physique and amazing fighting skills to show-off. Going through his Instagram fan page named “welovetolayts”, we’re able to spot a few of his sweltering topless shots, and included some in this gallery!
Of course, achieving that ripped body didn’t happen overnight or in an instant as he definitely worked hard for it. The 38-year-old actor does workouts, yoga, boxing, and taekwondo to be able to maintain it and to efficiently execute his stunts. He also made sure to continue exercising during their lock-in taping together with his co-stars!
For sure, avid viewers will miss Blue! Keep on watching the remaining episodes of JRB Creative Production’s Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin, created by Dindo C. Perez and Julie Anne R. Benitez and directed by FM Reyes and Avel Sunpongco, weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z!
