There were reports that the young actor allegedly attempted to commit suicide. Fans and netizens then concluded that it might have been the reason for Diego’s sudden departure from the show.
In an interview with ABS-CBN Entertainment, Marco shared that during the time that Diego was still taping for the show, he did not notice any signs of depression from his co-star. “Wala eh. Hindi mo kasi mapapansin sa isang tao yun pag depressed siya. Ako wala, hindi ko napansin. We just want to respect yung wishes ng family nila, if they want na ilayo muna siya sa showbiz, okay lang. We can’t blame them kasi minsan kailangan mo rin ilayo yung sariili mo sa mga bagay na minsan hindi okay sayo,” shared Marco.
Marco still shows concern and support for his co-star as they both as they both share a friendship outside of the show and says that he is always just there whenever the actor needs him. “Kaibigan ko talaga si Diego even before. Si Diego barkarda ko yan dating-dati pa. Dati ko pang kaibigan yan. Sabay kaming nag-start. And para ko na rin siyang kapatid, kami nilaDaniel (Padilla), mga ka-close talaga namin si Diego so I’m just here for him if he needs me, if he wants to reach out sa akin. I’m here to listen.”
The actor also shared why he gave Diego space when news of his suicide attempt broke out, “Siyempre when that happened to him nakakalungkot but also I want to give him space,” Marco said.”Ayoko naman yung maging kaibigan na, ‘Uy, ano na nangyari sa ‘yo?’ Baka magmukhang tsismoso pa ako or what ‘di ba? I don’t want that to happen. I just want him to know that I’m here for him and na-miss namin siya.”
Marco also said that he currently does not communicate with Diego but assures him that his Los Bastardos family is there for him anytime he needs them. “Now wala po(communication). Napag-usapan siya before sa taping but like I said before, wherever he is now or whatever is happening kay Diego, I just want him to know na nandito kami, yung mga kapatid niya sa Los Bastardos, na we’re here to support him and give him the love that he needs. If kailangan niya kami we’re just here, we’re just a text away. I’ve been friends with Diego for like the longest time. I know na he’s going through a tough time now.”
We do hope that Diego is feeling better now!
