The show ran for eight months, which premiered in February of this year.

In a blog conference held three weeks ago, Martin had the chance to express his gratitude for having done the said project on television. Apart from the fame it brought him, he feels fulfilled for the advocacy programs that the series has done during its run.

Like his character, when Martin was asked if he were to choose from the weapons that his ‘Bakal na Cruz’ gets to transform, which would he most likely resonate with; and he was quick to answer: “It’s the shield.

“To my loved ones, I’ve always been their shield from all the challenges in life. I also like playing the ‘shield’ to protect my loved ones.”

He may likely have that Messianic attitude, but for sure his heroic acts don’t go to waste as well as his effective portrayal of the role.

And despite the successes he is enjoying, Martin remains a humble individual and still maintains his good relationships with the people he has worked with especially the people behind the cameras.

Join him and the rest of the cast members in tonight’s conclusion of the said series.

Young, plays Hazel Mendoza, the incoming freshman student at Branwood College; seeking answers to her friend’s mysterious death—was quick to defend their show, “It has a more Filipino flavor and quite far from ‘PLL’.

Playing her two leading men are two of the equally promising male stars—Madrid and Pineda as Charlie and Burn, respectively.

After portraying the role of Omel in ‘Bamboo Flowers’, an entry in the recently concluded Sineng Pambansa National Film Festival All-Masters Edition, Madrid said that his role here is much challenging, “I have to do more research and study how exactly ‘nerdy’ people act.”

On the other hand, when Pineda was asked if he were to choose between being a vulnerable and gullible, he chose the former for he believes that being an actor—he should be one.

During its bloggers conference, the stylish and comfortable Urbanears made the said gathering a success. For more information and updates visit GMA Network Artist Center. Also like its facebook page and follow its twitter and Instagram accounts.
