He misses working for Bagani and acting alongside his co-stars, especially Makisig Morales who is now back in Australia. If he has the chance, he would love to be reunited with them in another project. Another famous actor he dreams of sharing the big screen with is Johnny Depp. The local celebrity he looks up to is John Lloyd Cruz. “Sana bumalik na po kayo sa showbiz,” he tried to reach out.
In the upcoming Maalaala Mo Kaya episode, however, Zaijian Jaranilla will be starring alongside Enchong Dee and Amy Austria. What was his experience like? The young star is revealing all the juicy details in this episode of Kapamilya Confessions!
There is no question that one of the main reasons he chose this project was because of the story itself. He guarantees that this will be a tear-jerker for every Kapamilya. Reading the script alone was enough to get him emotional. As excited as he was, Zaijian admits that he feels a lot of pressure in portraying a real person. It will be a great disappointment if he does not do his role justice. “Kahit sa sarili mo madidismaya ka,” he expressed.
This challenge is what motivated him to do his best in the episode of MMK. He had to do research on cerebral palsy. Aside from this kind of character being a first for the young actor, he cannot relate this life to his own personal experiences. “Sobrang laki ng pagkakaiba ng buhay namin,” he explained.
In the end, Zaijian has nothing but admiration for the person he is portraying. “Sobrang saludo ako,” he spoke about being determined to live despite having a disadvantage in life.
The former child star also revealed the status of his love life, plans for college, one embarrassing habit, and even teased a future project. Before answering his fans’ questions, he played the Complete the Sentence challenge. So, make sure to check out this video and get your all access pass!
