In an interview with "The Buzz," Martin said he does not believe that he is now the station's favorite male star.
Martin is set to star in his first lead role in a series in "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin" which will premiere on Monday (March 7) after "Mara Clara."
He believes that maybe the network management just saw his dedication to his work as an actor.
"Hindi naman po siguro. Nagkataon lang po siguro na kumbaga, nagampanan ko ng maayos ang mga role ko sa nakaraang soap opera na ginawa ko. At siguro nabigyan lang po siguro ako ng oportunidad at nakitaan ako ng potential kaya nagkakataon na magaganda ang proyekto ko at nakakasama ko ang magagaling na artista," Martin said.
Before taking the lead role for "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin," Martin showed his acting prowess in the hit soaps "Tayong Dalawa" and "Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo," with Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu as the lead stars.
Martin has always keep his feet on the ground and said that he's really thankful for the newest blessing.
Directed by Ruel Bayani, "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin" also stars Maja Salvador, Andi Eigenmann, Ronaldo Valdez, John Estrada, Amy Austria-Ventura and Lorna Tolentino.
