Many Kapamilyas have known Carlo Aquino since he joined the entertainment industry as a budding child actor. Today, thanks to his lead role on the primetimes series A Soldier’s Heart, fans still get to watch him from Mondays to Fridays. Yet, we still have questions about him. So, for this Entertainment.ABS-CBN.com exclusive, he is finally answering the web’s most searched questions!
Carlo got his ticket into showbiz when an agent approached him at an LRT station. He could not remember which station specifically, but recalls being asked to do a commercial. From that point on, he earned a number of roles on movies and television shows.
Some of his most memorable projects include the 1998 classic “Bata, Bata… Pa’no Ka Ginawa?”. “Doon ako nakilala. Doon ‘yung pinaka famous line ko na nagawa,” he explained. There is also the 2001 film “Bagong Buwan”. This was the first and last time he worked with the multi-awarded director Marilou Diaz-Abaya. Carlo also enjoyed his brief cameo in 1996’s “Magic Temple”. Back then, he loved fantasy.
Now, he hopes to eventually direct a movie. He already has some experience thanks to a segment on “Cyberkada” where he got the chance to direct Tootsie Guevara. Carlo led the making of music videos for his songs “Alaala” and “Balisong”.
After spending decades in the industry, another skill he learned is how to handle the haters. “Pinapahanap ko sa NBI,” he joked. His mindset is to ignore negative comments about his life from people he does not even know. Instead, he only listens to those who truly care about him. “Hindi na importante ‘yung mga opinyon nila sa buhay mo. Mas bigyan mo na lang pansin ‘yung mga taong alam mong totoong nagmamahal sa’yo,” he advised.
Whenever he needs a break, the Kapamilya actor would just jump on one of his motorcycles. He is a nature lover but does not have enough time to actually visit a beach or go hiking. Going on short rides is the next best thing.
Carlo Aquino also address his diet, work out, passion for music and more! “Gusto n’yo ba ‘yung brief history ng height ko?” Check out this video to get to know the A Soldier’s Heart star more!
