In Skylight film's first release of the year My Illegal Wife, Zanjoe Marudo plays the role of Henry, a man who gets amnesia after getting marooned on the island with Pokwang who claims to be his wife. The 31-year-old actor said even with all his past projects, he still has a lot to learn as a comedian. “Hindi ko naman sinasabi na komedyante ako, hindi ko rin sinasabi na dramatic actor ako, basta kung ano yung project na bagay sa akin at pinagkatiwalaan ako ng director at ng producer na kaya ko gawin, gagawin ko yun,” he admitted.
Zanjoe said he still has a lot to experience before he can feel fully comfortable doing comedy. “Hindi naman ako talagang kumportableng kumportable. Tuwing may ginagawa naman akong project laging sa mga unang araw talaga na-pe-pressure pa ako, hindi ko pa alam kung paano ko gagawin and then pag nasundan na sa second and third day dun ko pa lang naman nararamdaman kung paano talaga yung flow ng character ko at nung storya. Nung mga unang shooting namin dito ligaw pa ako eh, alam kong comedy pero nagiging drama minsan yung atake ko (laughs). Pero nung tumagal na, nagkukusa na yung katawan ko na kumilos na pang-comedy,” he shared.
After starring in Bromance and now in My Illegal Wife, Zanjoe said his girlfriend Bea Alonzo seems more excited than he is when his film started showing on June 11. The movie features spoofs of memorable scenes from several Star Cinema hits including Bea's sexy scene in She's The One. “Isa siya sa mga pinaka-excited sa pelikulang ito lalo na yung nakita niya yung eksena ng girl in the rain,” he said.
Zanjoe said he is also happy for Bea who has a new soap opera Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon on Primetime Bida. “Nakita ko na, napakaganda, para kang naglagay ng pelikula sa TV yung atake. Siyempre yung storya nakaka-intriga,” he added.
The My Illegal Wife star said he is not bothered that Bea, who is being paired with Paulo Avelino for the series, will have to do some intimate scenes for the show. The model-turned-actor admitted that he is not the jealous type and has never been an issue between him and his long-time girlfriend. “Uso pa ba yun? Hindi na uso yung mga ganung bagay,” he said.
