Breakthrough star Kokoy De Santos joins Sparkle GMA Artist Center
We’ve seen him take on daring roles in independent films and in 2020, he rose to fame through well-received digital series Gameboys. Yesterday, Kokoy De Santos officially becomes a Kapuso and a co-managed talent of Sparkle GMA Artist Center.
In an intimate media conference to welcome Kokoy and promote his performance on Magpakailanman, the Pepito Manaloto star expressed gratitude and excitement to be a part of GMA Network.
When asked what they saw in Kokoy to take him in, Sparkle head and GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara shared, “Tingnan mo o, ang cute, o. He’s very talented. He’s very charming. He knows how to make best use of his smile. Marunong lumandi sa camera.” Everyone burst into laughter. Gigi added, “O, ‘di ba, nakakakilig?”
Santiago-Lara also expressed gratitude to Kokoy’s co-manager, Director Perci Intalan. She added, “We are very thankful actually kina Direk Perci Intalan for agreeing to entrust him to us also, so dalawa kami magkahawak-kamay dito.”
As an official Kapuso, Kokoy is set to get better in acting. He told GMA in an interview, “Lagi akong gutom sa mga bagong aral na makukuha ko sa mga katrabaho ko rin, direktor, aktor, sa lahat.”
During the interview, he also told Random Republika the kind of project he would want to be a part of – action with a mix of romantic comedy.
