This December 14, Saturday, actor-comedian Empoy Marquez teams up with beauty queen-turned-actress Maxine Medina for the upcoming Ipaglaban Mo episode that would bear the hashtag #IMdinukot. Empoy and Maxine will play as husband and wife whose child will be kidnapped during the Christmas season. As loving parents, they would do everything they can to get their beloved daughter back and attain justice.
Inviting us all to watch the said episode, Empoy revealed some interesting facts about him and #IMdinukot, by responding to some questions from the netizens.
When it comes to his Ipaglaban Mo experience, the 38-year-old comedian shared that his role is somehow similar to the roles he previously took in other shows, given that he would portray a caring father. After doing the episode, the actor/comedian realized that being a father truly makes a man selfless. He learned that more than everything in life, family is the most precious thing one could ever have and should prioritize no matter what. Of course, he also learned that aside from making time for our families, praying to the Lord must always be on top of our to do list.
Moreover, although working with someone as beautiful as Maxine could be somehow “intimidating”, as per suggested by the netizens, he said that he felt comfortable working with the beauty queen.
Don’t miss #IMdinukot this Saturday, December 14, after It’s Showtime.
