Edu Manzano Back To Playing A Villain Role As A Corrupt Senator In 'Ang Pagbabalik Ni Alyas Robin Hood'

EDU MANZANO’s last primetime soap was ‘Bridges of Love’ at ABS-CBN. He’s now doing “Alyas Robin Hood” on GMA and he says he has long been missing doing action scenes.

“Ang dami ko ring ginawang action movies noong araw, whether as bida or as kontrabida like ‘Alyas Boy Kano’, ‘Task Force Habagat’, ‘Contreras’,” he says. “Mahirap gumawa ng action, be it sa TV or sa movies. Kasi mas magastos siya kaysa sa drama, lalo na kapag may explosions, car chase scenes na winawasak ang mga kotse and gunfights na kailangan ng mga baril at gunshot effects. Matagal i-set up. Pero nakaka-miss din pala, kaya heto, natuwa naman ako nangmapasama ko sa ‘Alyas Robin Hood’.”

He plays the role of Sen. Emilio Albano, a politician who seems to be very good to the poor, doing a lot of charity works, but is actually a scheming and corrupt public servant. So he’s back to being a villain?

“Yes, na-miss ko rin. Ang sarap magkontrabida, pero mahirap din kasi ang main responsibility mo is paguwapuhin yung bida. Complicated yung role ko kasi magkakaroon ng twists and revelations sa character ko. May nakaraan pala kami rito ni Jaclyn Jose, ang mother ng bidang si Dingdong Dantes. Anak-anakan ko rito si Ruru Madrid, pero may twist din sa character niya.”
