Kapamilya teen actor Zaijian Jaranilla has admitted that he is in a relationship!
"One year and one month na po kami," he said in an interview with Kapamilya morning show “Magandang Buhay” on Wednesday, October 14.
Zaijian, who had a breakout role in 2009 as Santino in the religious-themed teleserye “May Bukas Pa,” said he finds inspiration in his girlfriend every day.
He shared, "Sobra po (siyang inspirasyon). Nakakatulong po siya sa akin. Parang mas inspired ako sa pang-araw-araw... kapag gumigising ako tapos alam ko na may nagmamahal sa akin, tapos may naghihintay sa akin."
Zaijian is starring in the upcoming Star Cinema feature “Boyette”, which is a coming-of-age film that revolves around a teenage gay boy who has just entered college. It is helmed by writer-director Jumbo Albano.
Zaijian shared, “Ngayon po, binigyan ako ng sarili kong movie. Sa una hindi madali kasi lalaki po ako, tapos gaganap akong bading. So, medyo ang lalim po nang pinaghugutan ko. Pero tinutulungan ako ng mga direktor ko. At 'yung set po namin halos puro gays po. So, sinasabi nila na 'Uy medyo lalaki ka sa ganitong galaw, gawin mo ito.' Parang binibigyan nila ako ng tips.”
He added, "Mas gusto ko po 'yung parang nacha-challenge po ako.”
“Boyette” also stars Maris Racal and Iñigo Pascual. Powered by Cinexpress, the movie will be released on KTX.ph, iWantTFC, SkyCable, and Cignal soon.
