In 2017, Martin starred as the titular character in the Ang Panday reboot, while also serving as the director thus marking his directorial debut. He is credited under his real name, Rodel Nacianceno for his roles as director.
Early life and career
Coco Martin was born in Sampaloc, Manila and raised in Novaliches, Quezon City to his parents, Maria Teresa (née Pacheco) and Ramon Nacianceno. His parents separated and he became a street kid. He is a devotee of the Black Nazarene. During his childhood years, he usually went to the Quiapo Church with his grandmother to seek guidance from 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. Martin was also an Overseas Filipino Worker working as a janitor in Alberta, Canada.
Martin started out in one of the ABS-CBN's talent agency, Star Magic, as part of the Star Circle Batch 9. He made his first cameo film appearance in the 2001 film Luv Text where he was credited under his real name, Rodel Nacianceno, followed by many independent films.
Since then he has appeared in several TV advertisements before breaking back into showbiz with his lead debut independent film Masahista for which he was awarded the Young Critics Circle Best Actor Award in 2006. He also starred in Summer Heat in 2006.
In 2008, Martin was cast in Ligaw na Bulaklak as one of the regular cast members. In 2009, he starred in the drama series Tayong Dalawa where he won the award for Best Drama Actor at the 2009 Star Awards for Television. After Tayong Dalawa, he starred in the afternoon soap opera titled Nagsimula sa Puso, alongside Maja Salvador, Jason Abalos and Nikki Gil. In the same year, he joined Star Magic.
In 2010, he became part of the cast of ABS-CBN's primetime drama Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo, and had his first leading role in the action series Tonyong Bayawak. He also starred in his first mainstream film Sa 'yo Lamang, and the primetime series 1DOL. Martin also filmed another independent film titled Kinatay, where he was nominated for a FAMAS Award for Best Actor.
In 2011, he led the highly acclaimed television series Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin. In May, Martín received the Dekada Award in the Gawad Urian ceremony. He was nominated for multiple awards for his portrayal as Alexander and Javier del Tierro in Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, namely from the KBP Golden Dove Awards, Golden Screen Awards and Star Awards for TV.
In 2012, Martin starred in another ensemble series titled Walang Hanggan, an adaptation of the 1991 film Hihintayin Kita sa Langit. Having a good chemistry together, his love team with Walang Hanggan leading lady Julia Montes is Martín's most successful and effective love team, giving them more chance to star in other projects. Because of the success of the series, Coco Martin was then dubbed as the "Prince of Philippine TV Series". He was also the creative consultant of the series. He also starred in his second mainstream film entitled Born to Love You, opposite singer Angeline Quinto.
In May 2012, a script for a film called Juan dela Cruz was submitted to the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival, starring Martin alongside Tayong Dalawa co-star Jake Cuenca, Nagsimula Sa Puso and Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin leading lady Maja Salvador, and Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo co-star Albert Martinez. The entry, directed by Richard Somes, was one of the 7 rejected scripts. Cinemedia Films Production Incorporated and ABS-CBN Dreamscape Entertainment unit head Deo Endrinal decided to retool the cancelled film as a television series, which was aired in 2013. While Angel Locsin was originally pegged to be Martin's leading lady, Erich Gonzales ultimately bagged the role. Together with Martin, Gonzales and Martínez, Arron Villaflor, Eddie Garcia, Zsa Zsa Padilla and Gina Pareño played supporting roles.
In 2014, Martin starred in the period drama television series entitled Ikaw Lamang, alongside Walang Hanggan leading lady Julia Montes, and Tayong Dalawa co-stars Kim Chiu and Jake Cuenca. He also starred in another mainstream film Maybe This Time, with singer-actress Sarah Geronimo.
In October 2014, he celebrated his 10th anniversary in show business.
In September 2015, Martin together with an ensemble cast starred in the TV adaptation of the late Fernando Poe Jr.'s film FPJ's Ang Probinsyano. To portray the role, he had to train various martial arts such as Kickboxing, Arnis, and MMA. With the series dominating primetime and Philippine television, the tag "King of Philippine Television" was given to Martin. Prior to FPJ's Ang Probinsyano, Martin similar to his character Cardo, portrayed Police Inspector Gary Erana in an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya co-starring Angel Locsin and Ejay Falcon dedicated to the memory of Special Action Force members killed in the Mamasapano clash.
In 2017, Martin star as the titular character in Ang Panday reboot, while also serving as the director and producer thus marking his directorial and producing debut. The role was first popularized by late actor Fernando Poe Jr., hence, making it the second time Martin will portray one of his roles. The film will be one of the selected entries in 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival. In 2018, starred in the film Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles alongside GMA artists Maine Mendoza and Vic Sotto. Due to the continuous success of his top-rating drama series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano and consistently maintaining the number 1 spot in ratings above all Philippine television shows, Martin holds the title as the "King of Philippine Television".
In 2019, He starred in the film 3Pol Trobol: Huli Ka Balbon! with Jennylyn Mercado and Ai-Ai delas Alas. He was also the film's screenwriter, director, and producer. His series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano, which has been airing for 4 years, still maintains the top spot in ratings.
In 2020, Martin is set to lead the romantic comedy film "Love or Money" with Angelica Panganiban for Valentine's Day.
As of 2020, Martin holds a total of 109 awards and recognitions and 35 nominations from various award giving bodies since 2006.
Included in these are 5 Gawad Urian Best Actor nominations, 1 Gawad Urian Best Supporting Actor award, and 1 Gawad Urian 'Actor of the Decade' Award, an award given to actor/s and actress/es who had made outstanding works in the past decade. The Gawad Urian Awards is the most prestigious and highly coveted film award-giving body in the Philippines, and is currently regarded as the counterpart of the United States' New York Film Critics Circle.
Media and production companies
Martin is the co-founder and creative director of the media and tech firm CoSyn Mediatech. Martin co-founded the firm in partnership with Synergy 88, a Philippine-based group of businesses in digital media entertainment. Syenergy 88 is the country's first official Microsoft certified art studio for Gear of Wars 4. They have also done art assets for the multi-awarded game, the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt-Blood and Wine. Synergy88, along with its animation company ASI Studio, was also awarded the “Best 2D Animation Show” in December 2016 by the Asian TV Awards in Singapore for “George of the Jungle.”
In 2017, CoSyn Mediatech developed a game app 'Ang Panday', which was conceptualized in support of the 2017 remake of FPJ's classic, which now has a new face in movie and primetime TV king Coco Martin. Because the app was highly-successful, the company ventured to their second app in 2018, the 'La Luna Sangre filter app', based on ABS-CBN's hit 2017 series La Luna Sangre.
In 2017, Martin established his own film Production Company 'CCM Film Productions'. As of today, the company has produced three films since 2017: Ang Panday, Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles, and 3pol Trobol: Huli Ka Balbon!, all of which are starred by Martin.
