Their latest teleserye, Playhouse, has yet to air but already these photos are giving us all the feels!
Angelica Panganiban was trying to fix her windblown hair when she caught Zanjoe Marudo starring at her. So, of course she had to include the caption, “Nakaka-mangha?” In another post, the two are casually lying in bed together laughing about an inside joke. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. They have given us nose-to-nose, back hugs and side hugs. Basically, they are pretty much every bit as that Instagramable couple that is head over heels for each other.
Turns out, fans will be getting more than that from Playhouse because Zanjoe confirmed on Tonight with Boy Abunda that they do have a love scene
WATCH: Nagkakailangan ba sina Zanjoe at Angelica sa kanilang love scenes?
“Ang tagal na naming single parehas, baka may ma-kiliti sa feelings namin,” he joked. The actor admitted that it was not awkward at all. And was just thankful that everyone he was worked with is truly professional which is why he has never found himself in a difficult situation.
When asked about his own love life, “Handa nang mangmahal, handa nang masaktan,” was his answer. Some might see it as a pessimistic way of thinking but for him, you have to be prepared. You know to be ready to get hurt. As for his character Marlon, he is the type of person that does not deny his feelings, “Once na na-in love ka na, at naramdaman mo na ‘yun at alam mo na, hindi ka na puwedeng umatras.”
Zanjoe also knows that Angelica has the same attitude, “’Pag nag-mahal, alam mo ‘yun, wala nang atrasan. Ibibigay ko lahat.” He described her as loyal and sincere and admitted that he also wants this for himself. He is sweet and can be affectionate, but some might see this as out of character for him.
WATCH: Zanjoe, hanga sa pagiging loyal ni Angelica pagdating sa pag-ibig
In Playhouse, his and Angelica’s characters got married early because they were in love but did not realize that there are other factors that should have been considered. It is because if this that they ended up pushing for an annulment. But the story is about second chances, so fans are allowed to be optimistic.
