After his seven-month stint in "FPJ's Ang Probinsyano," Baron Geisler could summarize his whole experience in one word: bittersweet.
In an exclusive interview with PUSH published today, October 18, the actor opened up about saying goodbye to his character in the show, Bungo.
"Sobrang saya ko…bittersweet," he admitted. "Bitter dahil mamimiss ko 'yung mga taong nakasama ko for seven months sa show. Sweet naman dahil makaka-release na ako don sa masama kong character."
Baron then expressed his gratitude to Coco Martin, who gave him not only the trust to portray the role, but also a satisfying ending for his character.
“Noong kinausap pa lang ako sa umpisa ni Direk Coco, sabi niya malaking role ito, so ayusin ko. Inayos ko naman. Wala naman silang naging problema. Kaya siguro nila ako binigyan ng magandang ending, 'di ba? Madali ka namang patayin doon,” he said.
“Ganun pa man, happy ako sa ending ko kahit patay siya, patay 'yung Bungo. Happy para sa akin at nakalabas na rin ako sa ganoong kasamang character ko," he added.
Now that he's done with the long-running series, Baron said that he will go back to focusing on Christian group activities.
“Marami pa akong proyektong gagawin for the Knights of the Circle, 'yung Christian group namin. [So ngayon,] makaka-focus na ako doon sa mga proyekto namin as ambassador,” he shared.
Prior to joining the show, Baron starred in various movies, including "Ang TV the Movie: The Adarna Adventure," "Nagbibinata," "Kimmy Dora: Kambal sa Kiyeme," "Anak," and more.
