How jail changed Mark Anthony’s life


Mark Anthony Fernandez slipped under the radar more than a year ago when he was nabbed for marijuana possession.

After his drug related case that was dismissed by the Pampanga Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 58, 3 months ago, Mark Anthony Fernandez is back and is in demand.

Last seen in a teleserye on GMA-7 called “Wish I May” before the actor was nabbed, Mark Anthony enters new chapter of his life.


In a one on one interview, Mark Anthony said that “this is the best time of my life” in spite and despite his ordeal being in jail as he swears never to touch marijuana again until it becomes legal in the Philippines.

“I was taking pot a lot and way too much as a cancer preventive medicine, It’s never one specific thing & not just for Kicks, I mean, you’re in your middle 30s, going through life in entertainment, you know?

Everything is thrown at you, It’s a never-ending struggle, and being in jail changed my life, I’m much more comfortable in my own skin even after the trials,” the actor said.

Poised to make a comeback in 2018, the actor also signed up with Viva films and is set to do a film project with Claudine Barreto, being one of GMA’s leading actors in the past with his critically acclaimed performances on TV series like; Impostora (2007), Kamandag (2007–08), Ako si Kim Samsoon (2008), Luna Mystika (2008–09), All About Eve (2009) and Munting Heredera. He also portrayed Manny Pacquiao in Magpakailanman in 2003 before his second drug rehab.


Mark Anthony is currently part of the iconic FPJ series “Ang Probinsyano,” playing the villain, Brandon Cabrera.
