Arjo Atayde just got recognized during the recent 33rd Star Awards for Television, and he dedicated his award to Maine Mendoza!
Last Sunday, October 13, the actor was hailed this year’s Best Drama Supporting Actor for his excellent portrayal of an autistic person in “The General’s Daughter” during the Philippine Movie Press Club’s 33rd annual Star Awards for Television.
In his acceptance speech, the actor thanked everyone who guided and taught him to do his role well, saying, “First of all, I want to thank the cast for teaching me every day, I remain to be a student of what I’m doing every day, and I’m very thankful that I’m privileged that I’m working with all these brilliant actors and actresses.”
He continued, “I told you, I doubted myself every day, You believed in me, so much. You told me ‘You can do it’ and now I’m standing in front of you guys with this award. Thank you. I love you guys so much.”
Arjo further noted how Maine remains as one of his inspirations in doing his craft well. The actor expressed, “Last, but not the least, Maine, thank you so much for being such an inspiration, for being my every day, for keeping up with my weirdness.”
“This one’s for you!” he ended.
Arjo and Maine first publicized their relationship earlier this year. They have since kept their romance on the down low.
