Rodjun Cruz says its okay if brother Rayver is more famous than him


After eight years in showbiz, Rodjun Cruz finally got his biggest break to date via the top-rating afternoon teleserye Juanita Banana, which is top-billed by Bianca Manalo. Rodjun added that it was worth the wait even when while it took him almost a decade before he got a lead role. "Hindi naman ako nawalan ng pag-asa kasi nung una hindi ko naman in-expect na maging bida agad. Ang aim ko lang talaga mapakita ko sa tao ang talent ko," he said.

Though he and younger brother Rayver joined showbiz at the same time, the younger Cruz was the first one to be given a break. However, Rodjun clarified that this is not an issue between them. "Kami ni Rayver simula bata pa lang sabay kaming lumaki n'rsquo;yan. Sobrang close kami, walang inggitan. Nagtatawanan lang kami kung ano ang achievement ng bawat isa. Ngayon sabi niya, 'lsquo;Bro, ang yabang mo, ilibre mo ko madami ka ng pera.'rsquo; Sabi ko, 'lsquo;Hindi, ah.'rsquo; Sobrang close kasi kami, walang inggitan."

He also said that Rayver was the first person who got really happy when Rodjun got the good news about Juanita Banana. "Siya 'lsquo;yung unang-unang natuwa. Sabi niya, 'rsquo;Yan, bro ayos 'lsquo;yan. Simula na 'lsquo;yan.'rsquo; Papanoodin daw niya palagi. Sabi ko, 'lsquo;Oo, bro, idol kita, eh gagayahin ko 'lsquo;yung acting mo.'rsquo;"

Rodjun expressed that he and Rayver are so close that they also talk matters of the heart. "Sobrang close kaming magkapatid, so open kami sa mga ganong bagay." He added that Rayver is not prioritizing his love life and is focusing on his career instead.
