JM de Guzman plays Blessed Pedro Calungsod in new movie-A A +A
Sunday, September 16, 2012
YOUNG actor JM de Guzman is set to topbill a movie about the life of Blessed Pedro Calungsod.
"Mahirap pala maging santo," the actor said when asked about the story conference they had a few weeks back.
JM said this project is very different from his past works and it is a new challenge for him to play someone who lived his life serving the Lord.
"Napakaganda nung film. Napakaganda nung gustong ipakita at ibigay nung pelikula sa tao. Para sa mga taong nakakalimot magdasal at tumingin sa Diyos. Mayroon palang isang Pilipino na sinakripisyo yung buhay niya para sa Panginoon," he said.
Blessed Pedro Calungsod will be the second Filipino to be declared as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church.
In February, the Vatican announced that he will be canonized in October 21, 2012.
Meanwhile, JM is also thankful to all the viewers and supporters of his afternoon soap "Angelito: Batang Ama Book 2."
The Kapamilya actor said it pushes the whole staff and crew to work harder because they receive a lot of positive feedback.
"Thankful kasi may trabaho pa rin and very successful nung show. Ibig sabihin nun maraming nanonood at maraming naho-hook sa programa namin," he said.
The afternoon program is extended until February next year. (Sunnex)
