Albert Martinez - Still Fab at 50!

ABS-CBN threw a special party for Albert Martinez recently at The Establishment in celebration of his 30 years in showbiz. The joyful night was attended by Kapamilya executives, his family, closest friends, fans, product sponsors and members of the media. Truly a pillar in the industry, Albert promised to always be passionate in his craft and remain optimistic amidst the problems he’s facing. Albert said he’s very thankful for the outpouring of support he always receives from his fans, be it in his career or personal life.

Seeing the multi-awarded Albert Martinez in person brought back memories of Pinoy movies in the 80's. At 50, with occasional streak of gray beard and mustache, Albert still looks fabulous! Albert's secret? He said he started a healthy lifestyle at a very young age of 19. He used to do bodybuilding but stopped when he reached 40. He's now focused in cardiovascular exercises.

Although Liezl didn't make it to Albert's celebration, their children came full force for their father.

Among Albert's critically acclaimed roles are a downtrodden husband in “Magnifico” and as Jose RizalFilm Festival in“Rizal Sa Dapitan,” which gave him three Best Actor trophies in Brussels (Belgium), Metro Manila Manila Film Festival and Guillermo Awards. Albert also made a mark when he played in Mayor Enrique Rodrigo in May Bukas Pa. Albert also revealed that in the course of his three decades as an actor, he hasn’t portrayed a president yet. “A lot of people have been asking me what role would I like to have next. I always say I want to be Manuel L. Quezon. I find him very interesting” he said.

Now, he heads the Altamira clan as Mariano and continues his search for his beloved daughter Elisa, played by Melissa Ricks. Keep glued to Mariano’s crusade in looking for her beloved daughter Elisa. Nasaan Ka, Elisa?, airs Mondays through Fridays, after “My Binondo Girl” on ABS-CBN. Bida Best Kapamilya!
