Batang Quiapo BTS Coco, Ivana squad

When the cameras stop rolling on the set of "FPJ’s Batang Quiapo," the magic doesn't end—it just takes on a different form. The ‘bahay’ unit, comprised of Tanggol (Coco Martin), Bubbles (Ivana Alawi), and their housemates in the series, transforms the set into a lively, warm space filled with camaraderie and fun. Here’s a peek into their off-screen moments that showcase their tight-knit bond.

We begin this behind-the-scenes tour with this group shot!

As soon as they’re done with a scene, or even while they’re preparing for one, the set comes alive with selfie-taking. They love to huddle together, strike poses, and flash wide smiles for the camera. Ivana and Coco are seen with their co-stars: Irma Adlawan, who plays the cunning Olga/Beng, and Nikko Natividad, who portrays the gregarious Emong. Joining them is one of the newest additions to the cast, viral social media personality and 'pares' vendor Deo Balbuena, also known as Diwata. He plays Frida, a 'pares' vendor in the teleserye, who is taken in by Bubbles after being attacked by a group of men at his 'pares' store.

Spotted bonding with them is Sugar Ray "Mammoth" Estroso, who plays Bulldog, one of Tanggol's original 'tropa' currently imprisoned in the story. It seems Mammoth missed his co-artists, so he decided to visit the set. Or is this a hint at a plot twist in the upcoming episodes?

Of course, wherever Nikko is, there's bound to be a lot of fun. Surely, his castmates love spending downtime with him because of his energy—there's really no dull moment with him. His infectious humor and lively spirit keep everyone entertained, making the set a more enjoyable place to be.

In one photo he uploaded to Instagram, he jokingly averts his gaze from Ivana so his wife won't get jealous.

On the set, Diwata often goes into full ‘fan girl’ mode, eagerly collecting fun selfies with the stars he’s working with. In one image, he got to hug Coco, capturing a memorable moment with the series’ lead. Happy, yarn?
