Lorna Tolentino Is Back To Working With Coco Martin In “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo”

Lorna Tolentino is a Kapamilya primetime villain once again!

Veteran actress Lorna Tolentino is back on Kapamilya primetime as she enters the world of “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo.” 

Tolentino was introduced as Amanda during the April 20, 2023 episode as she was mentioned by Olga (Irma Adlawan). Amanda, along with Augustus (Julio Diaz), according to Olga are tough opponents to beat to get full control of Quiapo.

Later on, it was revealed that Amanda has a history with Supremo (Lito Lapid) as the latter is plotting revenge for her and Augustus.

Amanda, as it turns out, is a merciless killer.

Kung kinilala mo kung kaninong teritoryo ‘to, e, di sana buhay ka pa,” Amanda said on the show’s April 21, 2023 episode.

Lorna Tolentino and Coco Martin

Tolentino’s entry into the soap marks her second action primetime project with Martin. The two first worked together in the movie “Sa ‘Yo Lamang” in 2010, then in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” where she played the role of Lily Hidalgo.

He previous role as the scheming wife of President Oscar Hidalgo (Rowell Santiago), who used to be in leagues with criminal mastermind Renato Hidalgo to oust the president, stayed on until the show’s last two weeks as she fought to kill Cardo (Martin) and his cohorts.

Tolentino earlier teased her entry to “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo,” saying how glad she was to join the show.

Mabuti ngam hindi lola!” she says in jest, in a report by ABS-CBN’s Push.

Tolentino, in an interview early this year, expressed her gratitude to actor-director Coco Martin for casting her in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.” 

“‘Yung sa akin na role sa ‘Probinsyano,’ 10 days lang [dapat] ‘yun, tapos naging three years and five months,” Tolentino said in a past interview.

When asked if she will be open again to work with Martin, she quips, “Siyempre, go go go ako kung tatawagan ako ni Coco. Lalo na kung alam mong magtatagal. Ang saya kaya.”

Tolentino also previously expressed her openness to play another villain role with Martin.
