Zanjoe Marudo revealed how his newest teleserye, ‘Walang Hanggang Paalam,‘ made him see life-changing realizations.
During Walang Hanggang Paalam’s live media press conference, Zanjoe said he was grateful to ABS-CBN for still getting work at a time when big corporations are closing as a result of the pandemic.
“Unang una sa dami ng naitulong sa akin ng ABS sa career ko, sa buhay ko syempre importante sakin tong project na to dahil isa to sa pwede kong sabihin na suporta ba di lang dahil sa akin kumbaga sa kompanya nandito pa ang ABS.
“Na mag bibigay pa kahit sa anong nangyare may pandemic sa pinag dadaanan ng ABS na patuloy parin sila nag bibigay ng dekalibreng palabas para sa mga pilipino para sa mga kababayan natin na nalungkot din dahil sa nangyari.”
One more realization that the actor has had is that the pandemic had an equalizing effect on the people who are working on and off cam, “At importante sa akin dahil na wala yung ano eh, dito ko naramdaman na nawala yung top to bottom or kung sino ang may mas power, sino ang mas importante.”
For Zanjoe, the hierarchy was removed during this pandemic because everyone’s health is very important.
“Diba dati before pandemic hinde natin alam parang meron tayo sa utak natin na artista ako dapat importante ako may mga ganun eh.”
Zanjoe said he also wishes that this kind of thinking and treatment will still continue even after the pandemic.
“Nung nag sho shoot kame para syang naging bayanihan parang pantay, lahat kailangan mong protektahan hindi lang sarili mo pati yung kasama mo ano man ang trabaho niya yung pinaka importante ang nangyari sa akin dahil sa show na ‘to.
“At sana kahit wala ng pandemic maging ganun parin mga ugali ng tao.”
