Rodel Pacheco Nacianceno, professionally known as Coco Martin is a 37 year old actor, director and film producer, best known for playing the lead roles in Walang Hanggan, Juan dela Cruz and FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.

It was in 2017 when he starred as the titular character in the Ang Panday reboot, while also serving as the director thus marking his directorial debut. He was born in Sampaloc, Manila and is a devotee of the Black Nazarene.

He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management at the National College of Business and Arts in Fairview Quezon City. He was also an Overseas Filipino Worker working as a janitor in Alberta, Canada.

Who would have thought that he will be one of the most successful actors and directors today? Because of his amazing talent, hard work, passion and commitment he had built several houses here in the country and even abroad. Aside from those lavish houses, he also has a number of luxury cars and motorbikes and a lot of people will be greatly surprised to know how much each of them costs.
But before he had eventually achieved everything he has now, his very first motorbike was given by the multi-awarded actress Dawn Zulueta as a gift. Coco and Dawn had co-starred in the 2012 romantic melodrama television series “Walang Hanggan”, which was based on the 191 Gomez-Zulueta film entitled “Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit”.

True enough that everything happens for a reason, maybe we face a lot of struggles in our life for now but we can never know what tomorrow can bring. .but one thing is for sure, when you have dreams in life, when you persevere, work hard, and commit yourself to what you are doing everything will fall into places and you will soon be getting what you really deserve.
