Zanjoe Marudo on Andrea Brillantes: 'Ready na siya na maging bida talaga'


060213-zanjoe_main.jpgIn an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph, Zanjoe Marudo talked about his role in Annaliza and about the changes made to his character in the remake of the classic series. “Ako ‘yung tatayong tatay-tatayan ni Annaliza. Ang karakter ko don ay si Guido played by Renato del Prado nong original. Pero ngayon mas naiiba ‘yung character ni Guido kasi ngayon magiging mabait ‘yung character niya. Kasi siya ‘yung magpapalaki kay Annaliza. Magiging mabuting tao si Annaliza dahil sa kanya. Kasi before masama yung character ni Guido,” he relayed.

Zanjoe admitted that it is one of the most challenging roles that he has ever played considering he has not experienced fatherhood yet. “Isa ‘to sa mga challenging na karakter na gagampanan ko dahil ‘yun nga tatayo akong ama ni Annaliza. And first time kong gagawa ng ganong role. At tsaka siyempre di ko pa naman nai-experience maging tatay,” he remarked.

When asked how it was working with Andrea Brillantes who plays Annaliza, the actor had nothing but good words for the new child wonder. “Grabe, ready siya eh. Handa siyang maging bida at alam niya kung ano ang dapat gawin.” Zanjoe further commented that the show will thrive because of its lead star’s versatility. “Makikita mo talaga dito sa Annaliza na tatayo, tatayo talaga ang show na ‘to dahil ‘yung bida mo eh kung baga hinog na, kung baga ready na siya maging bida talaga.”

Zanjoe recently took the lead role himself in the comedy film Bromance which was a success at the box office. On his reaction to the overwhelming success of his film, he remarked, “Siyempre nakakatuwa na alam mo ‘yun, ‘yung feeling na naitawid ko ‘yung pelikula na may nag bayad, may nanood. Siyempre hindi ito ang huli na makakagawa ako ng movie dahil siguro pagkakatiwalaan ako ngayon ng Skylight at Star Cinema para makagawa ng mga nakakatawa at mga masasayang pelikula.”

Did he expect such an astounding response from the public? “Hindi naman. Hindi ko naman inexpect talaga. Kasi wala talaga akong basehan eh. First time ko ‘to [na lead star ako]. Pero confident naman ako sa movie na ginawa naming tama. Lahat ng eksena, lahat ng mga punch lines, confident ako don na maganda namin siya nadeliver. So hindi ko naman hawak ‘yun kung panonoorin ng tao pero nakakatuwa na sinuportahan talaga ng tao,” he commented.
