With a portfolio that includes a lot of commercial work, Zach Castaneda said he is now ready to get into acting after signing up with the Star Magic family last month.
“Honestly I was very nervous because I really didn’t know what to expect and it was my first big thing. Even though it seems so simple and nandun yung structure, nandun pa rin yung nervousness. I wasn’t really expecting too much out of it because I was really, really trying to focus and once I stepped on stage the whole nervousness just disappeared and I just left my dignity and ego out of the room. I was very ecstatic,” he shared during the Star Magic Black Pen Day media con.
As part of the 40 new artists in Star Magic this year, Zach shared how he plans to make his mark as an actor
“I’m already in this business and this business means a lot of work so first and foremost dapat may mentality ka na dapat I have to work my 101%. I have to work my hardest. This work has taught me independency. Dati kasi I used to procrastinate in early high school and now I’m in this kind of business. It’s a very, very different business and you really, really need to have independency,” he said.
Among all the Kapamilya artists, Zach said he can’t wait to get the chance to act onscreen with FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano star Coco Martin. “I’m really looking forward to working with is Coco Martin dahil mahilig ako mag-action. I think we would be a dynamic duo. I don’t know. We’ll see about it. Si Coco Martin talaga,” he added.
