“It was unfortunate that it didn’t work out. I’m sorry for my shortcomings I guess. I didn’t have time,” expressed Kiko, relating how he had to focus on his drama series then entitled “Sinungaling Mong Puso.”

“I wish I could turn it around, I wish I had more time but of course it was not possible.”

Kiko maintained as much as he loves Barbie, he had to focus on “Sinungaling Mong Puso” as it was his biggest break.

“Sayang naman kasi kung hindi ko gagalingan because it was my first lead role with Rhian Ramos and Rafael Rosell with director Ricky Davao and it was a star-studded cast,” he said.

His hard work did pay off as the show earned him a Best Actor Award from the World Class Excellence Japan Awards early this year.

Kiko is happy that Barbie is enjoying great success with her new show “Meant To Be.”

“I’m happy with what’s going on in Barbie’s life,” he exclaimed.

Asked if he would like a reconciliation with Barbie, the actor said he’d rather focus on “Mulawin Vs. Ravena.”

In it, he plays the role of Rafael, a cripple. He describes his character as having manic depression.

He opted to lose weight, more than five pounds already, for his role.

“Binabagayan ko lang ‘yung katawan sa character. Medyo payat siya ngayon pero siguro kapag nakakalakad na siya if ever naman pwede na siya lumaki,” Kiko said.

It’s not surprising for Kiko to put so much effort in building his character on “Mulawin Vs. Ravena.” As he has explained in previous interviews, he is always working hard to be a good actor. In fact, his acting award only made him hungrier for more.

“I’m not in this for the fame. I’m in it for the acting. I’m in it for the job. I love my job,” he expressed. “Fame comes with the job but I don’t necessarily look for that. I care if I have work and I care if I’m doing good and I care if I’m good at acting or not.”

Kiko’s state of mind about his craft is also because of his father’s advice. He is the son of actor Gary Estrada.

“He told me just to be true and be myself. He also told me to work hard and gawin ang trabaho ko at maging magaling sa craft ko. And everything will come into place,” he related.
