After nine long years, Ryan Eigenmann returns to work with the Kapamilya network on the primetime fantaserye “Bagani”!
He revealed at the show’s thanksgiving press conference today, March 15, that he’s now a freelance actor and is very lucky to have landed a role on such a big show.
Ryan plays Sarimaw, brother to Diether Ocampo’s Apo, one of the gods appointed by Bathala to watch over Sansinukob. Having made his first appearance on last night’s (March 14) episode, Sarimaw is shown to be the more sinister brother, wanting to rule over the people of Sansinukob with an iron fist instead of leaving them to their own devices.
“It’s been fun. It’s been a lot of fun,” he said about working on the show. “I love these guys.”
“Siyempre, nandun ‘yung apprehension, not working for a network for nine years,” he admitted. “But, you know, it was all unfounded worry kasi first day ko pa lang, all of these guys, sila mismo ‘yung lumapit, nagpakilala, made me feel welcome. Walang issues or whatever, so it was an easy transition.”
