Kapamilya actors Arjo Atayde and Lorna Tolentino have spoken up on the alleged “buhos tubig” incident of lead star and director Coco Martin on the set of Ang Probinsyano.
Arjo formerly played the nemesis of Coco in the long-running TV series, while Lorna currently stars as Lily, a money collector in Lucas’s (Edu Manzano) drug syndicate.
Amid the ABS-CBN franchise renewal issue, Robin Padilla previously brought up the incident where Coco allegedly poured water on staff who fell asleep out of fatigue, as a reply to a netizen who told him to “be like Coco”. (READ: Robin Padilla responds to netizen who told him to be like Coco Martin)
In an ABS-CBN report, Arjo said he witnessed the incident but insisted that it was just for fun.
He added that it doesn’t need to be an issue among the Ang Probinsyano crew members who have long been together on the set.
Meanwhile, Lorna revealed in a Pang-Masa report that she did not witness and experience such thing.
“Wala akong experience na ganu’n. Kasi nun’g nagpupuyatan din kami nung kailangang ang mga politikong tatakbo ay mawala na sa Probinsyano, medyo ‘yun, nagpupuyat kami talaga. Wala naman akong nakitang ganu’n,” she said.
“Dumarating naman yung mga pagbibiro na ganyan, basta hindi lang nakakasakit. Basta hindi nasaktan yung tao, okay lang,” she told Pilipino Star Ngayon.
