The Multi-talented Marc Justine Alvarez


Kapuso child actor Marc Justine Alvarez is known for his role as Antonio in the epic fantaserye, Indio. He now plays Sonny in One Day, Isang Araw. In this exclusive interview, Marc talked about his past roles, talents and aspirations.

We asked Marc whom he looks up to the most when it comes to acting. He told us that his Indio co-star, Senator Bong Revilla was his idol. He explained, “Marami po akong natutunan sa kanya, mag-action po, action-drama at mga iyakan, kung paano makipaglaban nang may kasamang kabayo, marami pa po.”

Marc juggles school and showbiz, and he is currently a Grade 3 student. How does he manage his time?

“Kunwari po, umabsent ako sa school, tapos pumasok po ako ulit, ‘yung hindi ko na nasulat [na notes] papakopyahin po sa akin ng kaklase ko tapos aaralin ko po,” shared Marc.

He added that his favorite subject is Math and that he also enjoys drawing. What does he usually draw?

“Dinodrawing ko po, mga monster, mga multo at mga heroes po,” said Marc.

It seems that art is both his talent and passion because he really wants to pursue it. What does he want to be when he grows up?

“Gusto ko po maging artist dahil mahilig po akong magdrawing at gusto ko rin po mag-painting. Gusto ko pa rin po mag-artista, puwede na rin po maging doktor para makatulong po sa may sakit,” stated Marc.

Did anyone teach him how to draw? How did he learn this skill?

Marc answered, “Wala po akong pinagtutunan magdrawing. Ako lang po mag-isa. Minsan po pag nagdraw-drawing ako, may kopyahan. Pag nabobore na po ako, ayoko na pong may kopyahan. Itatago ko na po, at itutuloy ko nalang ‘yung drawing.”

He shared that he has another talent that he rarely shows...He sings! He even sang for the GMANetwork.com web team who visited the set of One Day, Isang Araw.

Marc’s long list of talents does not end here, as he also knows how to speak Hebrew. He had to learn the language for his role in the independent film, Transit.

On his experience in learning Hebrew, he said, “’Yung Hebrew po, pinag-aralan ko ng isang buwan. Meron din po akong alam na isang kantang Hebrew. Ang una pong nagturo sa akin ng Hebrew, ‘yung friends ng mommy ko sa Israel. Nag-enjoy po ako.”
