Get ready with your tissues again on Saturday. Maalaala Mo Kaya, ABS-CBN's top-rating drama will feature a two-part special tribute for the Special Action Force (SAF) commandos who died in Mamasapano clash starring Coco Martin and Angel Locsin.
Airing this Saturday April 25, Coco will play Gary and Angel will play Suzette along with other stars Ejay Falcon, Rita Avila, Alex Medina, Marx Topacio, Efren Reyes, Trina Legaspi, Denisse Aguilar, Jillian Aguila, Aenah Solano and Johan Santos under the direction of Garry Fernando written by Arah Jell Badayos. This is MMK's first time to pay tribute to fallen commandos and it's also first time for Coco to be with Angel in a drama.
As Gary Erana, Coco Martin was able to meet the family of the real Gary. Coco said Gary had real big dreams too big to let it slip away because of the incident. Coco shared his sentiments about the fallen dreams of his character Gary who is supposed to marry girlfriend Suzette (Angel Locsin) next year on May. When asked what he felt after listening to the family's stories about the soldiers Coco was emotional and asked the left ones to take care of themselves in the field. He had grown better understanding of the meaning of 'special action force'. "They were not ordinary soldiers and their dream of giving peace to Mindanao should continue", Coco said. Don't miss MMK's special tribute to the Fallen SAF 44 on April 25 this Saturday and May 2 on ABS-CBN.
