“It doesn't matter if you're big or small.”
Ninety percent of the time, he is tiny, so they do those shots in chroma, and they have seven shots for a single scene, so he really made use of his imagination. All his kissing scenes with Alex were virtual. The most difficult scene was the nude take, where he had to wear skin tone cycling shorts. There was also a hard part he played where he was placed on a harness while in front of a green screen as he was emotionally breaking down. John said that it was painful on the sides of his groin, where the pressure from the ropes was greatest.
His favorite superhero is IronMan because he is just a normal person but with cool gadgets, somewhat similar to “Tiny Tony.” His real-life superhero is his Dad, because he is there to lead the family, and he makes sure that he supports their mom. Another real-life superhero is Shaina Magdayao, who is always there when he needs a pick-me-up.
“Tiny Tony” is agile, ultra-intelligent, and lastly has the ability to heal. DonDon Santos directed almost all of the “Komiks” series, and John witnesses that everything that Mr. Santos suggests works, that he is good even with the effects, and was able to bring to life the characters of “Tiny Tony” in each of the actors.
