Joseph Marco to star in HBO Asia's 'The Bridge'

Joseph Marco jetted off to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to start working on his first international acting project, HBO Asia’s crime-drama series “The Bridge”.

The “Los Bastardos” star began shooting for the series’ second season alongside other international actors yesterday, Dec. 2, as seen in his Instagram post on the same day.

He also showed moments of him on the show’s set alongside his fellow cast members Malaysian actor Bront Palarae, Singaporean actress Rebecca Lim, and Indonesian actors Ario Bayu and Miller Khan.

“Feels very surreal doing my first ever acting stint abroad!” Marco said. “It’s such an overwhelming experience to be able to work with international production and I really am grateful for it!”

The said program is a remake of the Swedish TV series of the same title that originally aired from September 2011 to February 2018.

Marco is not the only Filipino artist to appear in a project under HBO Asia recently. Bianca Umali and Sam Concepcion are also set to star in the said network’s fantasy series “Halfwords”. The show will be filmed in the Philippines under the direction of filmmaker Mikhail Red (“Eerie”, “Birdshot”). JB
