Comedian Empoy Marquez Gets His Biggest Break As Alessandra De Rossi's Leading Man In 'Kita Kita'

COMEDIAN EMPOY Marquez is the most visible actor on the big screen these days. His suspense-thriller, “Bloody Crayons” opened in theaters last Wednesday and while it is still showing, his new movie, the oddball romantic comedy, “Kita Kita”, will be opening this Wednesday. Empoy and his leading lady in “Kita Kita”, Alessandra de Rossi, are both proud as their movie got a Grade A from the Cinema Evaluation Board.

Directed by Sigrid Andrea Bernardo (of “Huling Cha Cha ni Anita”, the movie was shot on location in Japan. Alex de Rossi plays a blind girl who falls in love with him thinking he’s very handsome. This is Empoy's first starring role and he would like to thank their producer, Piolo Pascual and his Spring Films, for banking on him.

“Salamat kasi sumugal sila sa akin pero siempre, kinakabahan ako habang papalapit ang playdate ng pelikula,” he says. “But so far, very positive and encouraging ang feedback mula sa mga nakapanood nito sa advanced screenings, like sa preview nito sa UP na tawa nang tawa talaga ang audience. Sabi ng Spring FIlms, gagawa pa raw ako ng isang solo movie sa kanila pagkatapos nito, ang “Tondo Dead”. Kakaiba rin ang concept nito para sa millennials.”

He started his career in 2003. “Yung classmates ko nung high school, tawa nang tawa sa mga ginagawa ko, kaya tinuloy-tuloy ko na. Awa ng Diyos, nakapagpagawa na ko ng sariling bahay sa Bulacan para sa family ko at dito rin sa Manila. Napagtapos ko na rin ng pag-aaral ang mga kapatid ko.”
