Zanjoe Marudo says he would consider doing a gay kissing scene for an art film


051913-zanjoe_main.jpgAfter his first starring movie under Skylight Films’ Bromance: My Brother’s Romance opened last May 15, Zanjoe Marudo admitted he is happy with all the response he’s been getting from the public and ABS-CBN. “Siyempre nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng nanuod nung first day tapos sana talaga ay mas dumoble pa yung maikuwento pa ng mga nanuod sa ibang tao. Ikinatutuwa ko kasi yung mga feedback puro positive, lahat nag-e-enjoy. Hindi nasayang yung pera nila kaya ang sarap din nung pakiramdam na ganun di ba? First movie ko na pagbibidahan tapos natutuwa yung mga tao kaya ang sarap ng feeling na ganun,” he said.

One of his biggest fans is girlfriend Bea Alonzo who was with him during the Bromance premiere on May 14. “Siya yung may pinakamalakas na tawa dun sa sinehan kasi lahat na lang ng eksena tinatawanan. Nanuod siya nung opening screening. Lahat na lang ng eksena tinawanan niya. Tuwang tuwa din siya dun sa mga ibang cast,” he said.

Zanjoe said he is proud of being offered challenging roles that are far from his real character like his gay character Brandy in Bromance. “Hindi naman ako natatakot na kahit paulit-ulit kong gawin yun kasi kung gusto naman nila, kung gusto naman ng taoBakit si Mang Dolphy diyan naman, marami siyang pelikula na gustong-gusto ko na bading yung role niya so hindi naman ako natatakot na ma-typecast,” he explained.

If ever he would be offered a role with a gay kissing scene, Zanjoe said he would consider it. “Depende siguro sa tema kung medyo art film siya o di puwede kung ipanglalaban sa mga festival. Pero kung pangbata o pang-masa, hindi naman siguro patok yung mga ganung klaseng eksena. Depende talaga sa project,” he said.

The 30-year-old actor said he does not know how Bea would react to watching it but they can just cross the bridge if ever that situation will happen. “Hindi ko masagot pa kung paano, hindi ko rin iniisip kung paano ko gagawin, kung hindi ba ako maiilang. Kasi may mga eksena sa Bromance na first scene ko with Carlo Romero (who plays Brandy’s straight boyfriend) halata mo pa na naiilang ako kasi first time din namin nagkatrabaho. Pero nung tumagal naman naging normal na lang kaya lang yung mga ganyang klaseng parang papasok lang siya sa mga art film talaga na talagang panlaban sa festival, pang-ganun, pang-ibang bansa. Parang hindi siya tatanggapin dito sa atin. Parang kung gagawin ko yun at ipapaplabas dito, parang hindi rin i-e-ere, i-ku-cut din, puputulin din,” he explained.

The model-turned-actor said he would also be open to doing roles in movies like the iconic 1985 Peque Gallage film Scorpio Nights if given the opportunity. “Yun kasi yung unang pumasok sa isip ko nung sinabi na kung babalik ba sa pagpapa-sexy, ganun. Siguro naging time ko kasi yun nung ‘90s ‘di ba? Hindi naman ako nagsasarado ng pinto sa mga ganung klaseng roles. At saka maganda yung storya niya, hindi naman ito para lang. Sana mabigyan ng iba’t ibang klaseng role ako after ng Bromance sana mabigyan pa ako ng isa pang pelikula na comedy ulit na makakapagpasaya sa mga tao,” he said.
