Zanjoe Marudo shares why he is very proud to be part of the Star Magic family


062411-zanjoe_main.jpgAfter completing his scenes in the upcoming Star Cinema movie with Toni Gonzaga and Eugene Domingo called Wedding Tayo, Wedding Hindi, Zanjoe Marudo admitted that he is looking forward to sharing his newest project with his fans. Although this will be Zanjoe’s second movie with Toni, after You Got Me in 2007, this movie was Zanjoe’s first time to work with Jose Javier Reyes. “Itong pelikula, comedy siya so hindi na bago para sa akin pero nandito yung side ko na hindi ako kenkoy. Kumbaga isa akong parang may pagka-nerd kumabaga,” he shared with Push.com.ph.

Zanjoe also admitted he looks forward to his upcoming teleserye Alta. “Abangan niyo yung bago kong soap na gagawin. Heavy drama talaga siya dahil kasama ko dito si Angelica Panganiban, si Gretchen Barretto, at si KC Concepcion. Yun yung bagong i-o-offer namin,” he shared.

Although he could not divulge specific details about the role yet, Zanjoe revealed that he will play a complex character in the series. “Siguro ang masasabi ko lang sa ngayon, bago talaga sa akin itong role na ito dahil kumabaga sa aming lahat, sa lahat ng cast of characters, ako yung pinaka-hindi belong. Ako yung pinaka-naiiba. So yun na lang muna yung puwede ko sabihin,” he added.

Being part of the Star Magic family for the past five years, Zanjoe said that he is grateful for the way his career has been managed after his stint on Pinoy Big Brother in 2006. The 28-year old actor says he was happy to be included in the Star Magic music video shoot for their anniversary jingle “Ikaw Ang Magic ng Buhay Ko,” which featured all the talents of Star Magic. “Siyempre masaya ako kasi lalo na pag may mga ganitong events, like the Star Magic catalogue, the Star Magic Ball tapos may bago kaming ginagawa, like itong music video. Siyempre ito yung time na nagkikita-kita talaga kami nung mga ibang artists ng Star Magic. Excited kami lahat na merong bago laging ino-offer ang Star Magic para sa mga sumusuporta sa amin,” he explained to Push.com.ph.

Zanjoe admitteed that he has always considered Star Magic as a kind of family to him. “Talagang masasabi kong pamilya ko ito hindi lang dahil sinasabi silang Star Magic family, literal talaga. Hindi lang kung madami kami, kung sampu kami. Hindi naman career kumbaga ang nagbubuo sa amin lahat kundi yung friendships and personal things like kung may mga masasayang bagay or malulungkot na nangyayari sa amin, eh parte sila, parte kami lahat,” he said.

The actor-model also admitted that choosing to stay with Star Magic has helped him keep him grounded when it came to his career as well as hone his skills in acting even more. “Dito naman sa pag-arte, lahat kami na artista, ang maganda ay merong star magic, kini-keep kami nila na maging humble sa lahat ng bagay na ginagawa namin and sabihin mo ng may makuhang award or parang kumabaga nag-hit yung isa mong ginagawa or maraming pumupuri sayo, ang Star Magic nandiyan to help keep my feet on the ground, para hindi lumaki ang ulo mo. So hindi naman kami nagco-compete sa isa’t isa, siguro nagiging conscious lang kami na dapat ‘pag Star Magic ka, dapat ay maipagmamalaki ka ng kompanya,” he said.
