Martin Escudero returns to the small screens to play yet another challenging and controversial role as a person who is diagnosed positive with HIV in TV5's Positive set to air on Thursday, October 17, and part of TV5’s stronger primetime block.
A pocket presscon was held on Tuesday October 1 at Annabels Tomas Morato.
Martin Escudero: I play as Carlo – a young and successful professional who lives his almost perfect life as an Operations Manager of a Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) company and as a family man happily married to his pregnant wife, until he was diagnosed positive of HIV.
First time kasi that a whole series is dedicated to the life of someone with HIV. It’s an interesting series and it’s a challenging role, so I really have to prepare for it.
TWM: What was your first reaction upon learning your role?
Martin Escudero: I wanted to get tested. Marami kasing natatakot magpa-test for HIV. So I want to get tested to fully understand the feeling, para magamit ko sa role ko bilang si Carlo
