Actor Zanjoe Marudo mentioned that his colleagues, who selected to lie low or retire from appearing during the pandemic, have truly “helped” him land meaty roles like that of David Ilustre in “The Broken Marriage Vow.”

“I guess the timing is just perfect, especially since a lot of my contemporaries are currently not interested in doing production work. That is actually a big factor, and also the fact that I have become a lot more mature as an actor. I’m now ready to take on more challenging characters. I already know what I want and what I’m capable of doing,” Zanjoe mentioned in a current digital chat with present biz scribes. “I’ve also learned to embrace the opportunities given to me, as well as where this project will eventually take me once it’s done.”

Zanjoe mentioned he was proud and grateful to have began his present biz profession by becoming a member of the truth expertise search “Pinoy Big Brother” some 15 years in the past. “It was a happy experience, but at the same time, a struggle. I knew nothing about acting before that. I also had no inkling of where I’d end up later on. I just knew that I had to step up because I was given a unique chance to prove my worth,” he recalled.

“I studied acting. I persevered. I couldn’t imagine doing anything other than being an actor so I knew I had to be a good one. That’s why when our network bosses started giving me interesting projects, I tried to give my very best so that they wouldn’t regret taking a chance on me; so that they’d continue to give me more worthwhile ones,” he added.

Zanjoe lately renewed his contract with residence community ABS-CBN and its expertise administration arm, Star Magic. “I’ve had a long-standing relationship with them. I value this relationship and prioritize it over whatever money I could have earned elsewhere if ever I decided to leave,” mentioned the 39-year-old actor.

In good and unhealthy occasions

“When I was just starting, they helped me by providing all the training and experiences I needed in order to improve as an actor. When the time came that it was them who needed help, I made sure I was around. They’re my family in good and bad times. I wouldn’t have achieved whatever professional success I’m experiencing now if not for them.”

In “The Broken Marriage Vow,” Zanjoe performs David, an architect and a married man who falls in love with the daughter of one in all his enterprise purchasers. He claimed that there’s so much to study from portraying the character.

“The program attempts to show you the consequences of your recklessness, or what will happen if you choose to cheat on your wife and hurt your children,” Zanjoe identified. “To be honest, it’s the effect on the kids that I’m more concerned about. More than the wife, they have more to lose as a result of your actions. Their welfare should be the most important thing for you.”

New strategies

In creating his character, Zanjoe mentioned he had to work intently with director Connie Macatuno, whom he already collaborated with within the 2020 dramatic movie “Malaya” alongside Lovi Poe.

“It helped that we already know each other and are aware of each other’s quirks and capabilities, likes and dislikes,” Zanjoe defined. “Direk Connie has done more films than teleseryes so her attack is different. I tried to help her as much as I can in that aspect. I made sure to cooperate in order for her to achieve what she envisioned for the series.”

“I’m amazed by her because the way she handles each scene is not at all typical. Sometimes, she would suggest for me to do a different attack on a particular scene, and when I review our takes, I’d say, ‘Oo nga! She was right!’ The other cast members and I are lucky to have worked with Direk Connie in this show. We’ve learned new techniques on how to deliver lines for TV, something that’s totally different from what we’re used to seeing in typical drama series.”

“The Broken Marriage Vow,” a Filipino remake of the British sequence “Doctor Foster,” additionally stars Jodi Sta. Maria, Sue Ramirez and Zaijian Jaranilla. INQ
