With an acting career that has already spanned two decades, Ketchup Eusebio said he has come a long way since his role in ABS-CBN’s teen-oriented series Berks in 2002. As part of the cast of The Broken Marriage Vow, the 36-year-old actor admitted he felt some pressure accepting the role of Jodi Sta. Maria and Zanjoe Marudo’s close friend and neighbor in the family drama series. 

“Mula nung umpisa, I already consulted with sina direk Connie (Macatuno) and direk Andoy (Ranay). Kasi hindi ko napanuod talaga yung mga original versions. So tinanong ko kung paano ba puwede i-localize yung character ni Charlie. Since yung kultura natin sa Pilipinas sa pagkakaintindi ko sa mga napanuod ko dati, yun kasing usual na relationship ng mag-asawa sa atin,” he shared during The Broken Marriage Vow finale press conference.

Ketchup admitted he tried his best to make the role his own even after the original British version had spawned various adaptations in different countries already.

“Sa Korean kasi talagang nakikita ko submissive talaga yung mga babae sa kanilang mga asawa. So para maging justified itong pagloloko ni Charlie, tinatanong ko palagi si direk, ‘Direk hindi dapat bossy si Charlie sa asawa niya. Baka puwede kong gawing malambing at palabiro, para maging yung usual na chickboy na playboy dito sa atin sa Pilipinas.’ Very glad naman ako na na-approve nila yung mga ginagawa. So yun yung mga preparations para kay Charlie,” he explained. 

One of the most memorable scenes for Ketchup in the series was a sensitive scene with Jodi Sta. Maria when Charlie ends up sleeping with Dr. Jill one night.

“Natatawa kami actually habang ginagawa, talagang sineryoso ko yun. Nag-so-solo kami ng room pagkatapos ng eksena nagkakatinginan kami. Napapaganun na lang kami. Very thankful ako kasi first time ko yung ganung eksena at maraming salamat na si Jodi yung kasama ko kasi alam kong hindi kami mag-iinarte habang ginagawa namin. Ang pro ng atake at ng pagkaka-execute ni direk Connie (Macatuno) at direk Andoy (Ranay),” he recalled.

Ketchup also shared what lessons he was able to bring home from the project.

“Ang dami kong gustong matutunan at natutunan ko dito nung ginagawa namin itong show. Hindi talaga nagtatagumpay yung ganung klaseng mga relasyon. Wala, hindi mo talaga mabibigyan ng justice yung infidelity pagdating sa pamilya. So magiging baon ko yun lalo na’t bumbuo ako ng sarili kong pamilya. Lesson yun para kay Charlie.

“Thankful ako kay Charlie kasi naipakita niya sa akin yung end result ng kung ano talaga yung ano ang mangyayari pag naging abusado ka sa isang napakabuting asawa. Martir na nga yung asawa niya si Carol eh. So yun yung mga gusto kong makita na hindi successful yung mga plano na mga sideline. Maraming salamat kay Charlie para sa mga pagkakataon na yun,” he shared.

Catch the last two-week run of The Broken Marriage Vow weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, Jeepney TV, and TV5. The Broken Marriage Vow’s finale episode will be aired on June 24, Friday.
