More than a decade after charming us all in the 2009 inspirational Kapamilya teleserye May Bukas Pa, Zaijian Jaranilla is now all-grown up! He graced the TWBA hot seat to talk about the original iWant series, “Story of My Life.” He portrayed the role of Rex, a troubled teenager fighting against depression and craving for love outside the family home.
When asked how he differed from his character, the young actor said that he had never been rejected by a girl before, although, they are both shy type. Zaijian takes courtship seriously by paying a visit at the girl’s house and getting to know her family better. Zaijian revealed that he is currently in a relationship with his non-showbiz girlfriend. And he admits that his work under the limelight sometimes leads to misunderstandings and arguments, especially now that he’s being paired with an on-screen loveteam. But the lucky girl in Zaijian’s life has nothing to worry since he calls himself a loyal boyfriend.
The hunk-in-the-making flashed his perfectly-toned abs on his social media account, drawing admiration from the netizens. He doesn’t hit the gym but rather just uses dumbbells at home. Zaijian attributes his good shape to the intense physical trainings he went through for the epic-fantasy series, Bagani in 2018.
