After spending his second Christmas vacation with girlfriend Bea Alonzo's family, Zanjoen Marudo admitted their relationship is now stronger than ever. “Nung December 24 andun kami sa pamilya ni Bea tapos sa 25th sa pamilya ko. Masaya ang pasko namin kasi pareho naming napuntahan both families,” he shared.
The 30-year-old actor said he enjoyed the holidays and looks forward to what’s in store for him in 2013. He said he and Bea are the kind of couple who give practical gifts to each other. “Wala simple lang, simple lang naman kami mag-regaluhan. Mga maliliit na bagay lang, yung mga wala kami, kung ano yung gusto namin, parang ganun. This year siguro na-excite ako sa mga bagong projects na darating after nitong mga magagandang projects na nagawa ko. Meron na akong naka-line up sa TV and movies,” he said.
Zanjoe admitted he enjoyed his dramatic role as Angel Locsin's boyfriend Tristan in One More Try and is open to playing more serious characters in other upcoming projects. “Oo nga eh. Nag-enjoy ako gawin yung drama kasi challenging. Oo naman open ako mag-drama kasi lahat naman ng binabato sa akin na roles ginagawa ko naman, lalo pag alam kong kaya ko naman,” he said.
The talented actor-model is also very proud of his movie's Metro Manila Film Fest awards Best Picture win as well as One More Try doing well at the box office last month. “Siyempre masaya dahil di ba heavy drama siya, hindi ganung regular na may heavy drama sa teleserye tapos nasali pa kami sa top three sa MMFF,” he added.
Zanjoe was also supportive of his One More Try co-star Dingdong Dantes who bagged the Best Actor award at the MMFF. He said he and Dingdong have become good friends even off-screen and have even discussed playing golf together, which is Zanjoe's favorite hobby. “Kami ni Dingdong enjoy kasi kumportable na kami sa isa’t isa. Feeling ko kasi dahi pangatlo na kasi namin itong nagkasama sa isang pelikula eh,” he said.
