ABS-CBN's longest running drama show "Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK)" is set to feature Former Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr., life story and it tapped Pascual to play the coveted role.
Piolo disclosed that the taping will start next week. And as part of his preparation, he is now doing his own research about the man whose death triggered the 1986 bloodless revolution in EDSA.
He also disclosed that he will sit down with television host-actress Kris Aquino, Ninoy's youngest daughter, for some advice.
"Nakaka-pressure din. Ang laki ng expectations. 'Yong mga tao, hindi pa lumalabas, may judgment na hindi mo kamukha or you are not eloquent as he was. And then sasabihin sa�yo na wala kang karapatan. Ako, I'll just come up with something na version ko," Piolo said.
When asked about his other co-stars, meanwhile, Pascual declined to divulge any detail. "Hindi ko pa pwedeng sabihin. Ako pa lang ang confirmed."
