Christian played the role of Barbs in the 2016 Metro Manila Film Fest entry “Die Beautiful”.

“Born Beautiful” is produced by The IdeaFirst Company directed by Jun robles Lana, who brought to as the award-winning comedy/drama movie “Die Beautiful”.

According to the official statement of The Ideafirst Company, Christian mentioned that he can no longer do the series “Born Beautiful” so they had to scout for another actor.

“Award-winning actor Martin del Rosario is now the lead star of Jun Robles Lana’s DIE BEAUTIFUL spin-off series, BORN BEAUTIFUL. After starring in a number of acclaimed independent films — among them ‘Dagitab’ which won for him an Urian award — Martin will portray the expanded role of Barbs, the best friend of Paolo Ballesteros’s character Trisha.

“Direk Jun explained that it was an interesting twist of fate that led to this casting of Martin, ‘Christian Bables expressed to us that he is no longer available to do Born Beautiful, that allowed me and the creative team to rethink the character of Barbs and what the character can do. We thought of Martin because we recently worked with him when we produced Prime Cruz’s ‘Ang Manananggal sa Unit 23B’ and we know he can bring in a new dimension to the character now that the entire series revolves around Barbs.’

“BORN BEAUTIFUL will go into production this November and will be seen on Cignal Entertainment in early 2018.” In the meantime, Martin is too excited for the said series. In fact, he had posted in his Twitter account... @mart_drosario: “Walang pinanganak na pangit. Everybody is BORN BEAUTIFUL.”

He also posted a photo of a pair of high heels captioned,”Practice, practice...”

Again, he posted the following day with the title card Born Beautiful:

“Cameras to start rolling soon! #BornBeautiful.”

One basher named Mark Devaras questioned Martin’s acting capacity.

“Why you? Why not Christian Bables? The awards that were awarded to him because of the film is the undeniable proof that he is the only artist who fits in that role. I don’t think that Born Beautiful is going to give me the same impact Die Beautiful gave me before.”

Martin replied back,””Why me? Why not.”

“Respect is given to people who deserve it. Respect is earned.”

On the other hand, Direk Juna lana expressed his gratitude to Martin by posting in his Twitter account.

“Honored to be working with one of the most talented and professional young actors in the industry today. @mart_drosario I know you’ll blow their socks off ! (or rather their heels) #BornBeautiful” Martin replied,”

“Thank you so much @junrobleslana sa tiwala. Excited to be on the set of #BornBeautiful. Let’s do this!”

FORMER kapuso singer-actress Frencheska Farr married her non-showbiz boyfriend Gino Jose at a civil rights in las Vegas, Nevada,USA.

Now that she newly got married, has she adjusted so far?

“Ayos na ayos naman ang buhay misis dito at medyo hindi pa ako sanay sa term na ‘misis’ or ‘asawa.’ Pero masaya talaga kasi may katuwang ako sa life at nag-e-enjoy lang kami. Wala munang baby. Gusto muna namin enjoy-in ang life habang wala pang kids.”

Before getting married, she tried her luck in the US, however, most of the time she gets homesick.

“Nami-miss ko rin ang Pilipinas, lalo na kapag naiisip ko ang family at friends ko na matagal ko nang nakasama. Pero ine-embrace ko rin itong bagong environment ko dito. Marami na akong mga new friends at iba pa rin ang mga opportunities na dumarating sa iyo. Habang bata pa tayo, grab that opportunity, di ba?”

It’s been a long time since Frencheska signed with GMA Artist Center. But she mentions that she still looks back at GMA and what the network has done for her career.

“To be honest, pag nagre-reflect ako about GMA, talagang thankful ako sa GMA dahil kung wala sila, hindi ako makakarating sa kung nasaan man ako ngayon. Malaking part sila ng pag-shape ng aking pagkatao at talagang binago nila ang buhay ko. And for that, super grateful ako.

“Siguro time to move on na rin talaga at maghanap ng bagong opportunities para rin sa growth ko as an artist,” diin pa niya.

In the States, Frencheska never stops acting.

She plays role in her husbands short films.

“May mga small acting projects pa din ako, at nag-a-assist pa rin ako sa paggawa ng short films ni Gino. Nakakatuwa nga dito at nai-invite kami to screen our films sa film festivals. Recording naman ay wala akong ginagawa sa ngayon. Yung last na ginawa ko ay independent EP na nasa Spotify at nirelease ko yun last year. Pero araw-araw pa rin ako kumakanta. Sa bahay, sa park, sa kotse… Nag-aaral din ako dito ng music, at hopefully makapag-share ako ng new songs soon.”
