Albie talks about transforming into his transgender character


By Kathleen N. Lavapie


Known for his bad boy yet charming looks, Albie Casiño, admitted on Kapamilya Chat that he was initially hesitant to take on a transgender role for the "MMK" October 15 episode.

"Kahit nga papunta na sa set, natatakot na 'ko eh." he confessed. "'Di ko na itutuloy 'to."

Still, he took on the challenge, since he really wanted to play gay in a project.

When asked about how he prepared for the role he mentioned that he Skyped with Erica, the person that he's portraying, and got to know her.

He also explained how helpful everybody was, especially the gays on their set, as they gave him insights.

Serving as his love interest in the episode was Neil Coleta.

"Nag-uusap kami as Neil and Albie, pero as soon as sinabing, ito na ah [take na], in character na kami. Hindi na si Neil ang tingin ko sa kanya, malagkit na 'yung tingin namin sa isa't-isa," Albie related.

He further related that he did not think of what others might say over his role.

"'Yung iniisip ko lang, I want to do my best para kay Erica, to give justice to her story," he enthused.

Let us all see Albie's transformation on "MMK" this Saturday!
